I have been around dogs my entire life and was a veterinary technician for 10 years. I can provide a loving and safe environment for your best friend while you're away. I am comfortable providing superior care to dogs with special needs and/or on medication. I feed my babies Diamond Natural Chicken dry food and will supply that if desired although I strongly recommend keeping your dog on his/her normal diet. You are welcome to bring your pet's food as well as toys, blankets, or anything to make him/her feel more at home. I have a good sized yard with a brand new 6' privacy fence (always securely locked and only accessible from inside the yard) and plenty of toys to help your buddy enjoy my home. I also have pet beds, sheepskin pads and lots of blankets and rugs.
I believe the safety of your pet is top priority! If I have to leave the house I may choose to kennel your pup while I'm gone. This will be done only if necessary but could be different in every situation depending on all dogs in my care at that time. If you have one, bringing your dog's own kennel is ideal.
I do work but my adult daughter is home often during the day. If she is not available I come home for lunch, potty breaks and play time.
Proof of vaccinations, no exceptions - Rabies, DHPPC, and Bordatella. Please bring a copy of veterinary records with vaccinations dates. If you don't have this and I am not able to contact your veterinarian, I will not be able to honor the reservation.
House trained (puppies in training are exceptions)
Neutered (6 months and older)
I prefer a meet and greet prior to first stay, but is not required. Please allow plenty of time on the first drop off for questions and information share. I want your dog to have a great experience and providing as many details as possible about your pet is key.
Other services such as bathing, training and transportation are available - please ask!
Boarding change is $25/night or 24 hour period. For early drop off and/or late pick up additional daycare fee is $15.
I would be happy to provide additional references. You can also send me a friend request on Facebook - Vicki Schumacher.
