If my calendar shows dates that are unavailable, you can always ask if we really are unavailable. I may be doing sitting at a client's house [none of the family is home] or away at our Clearlake house. I have taken boarding dogs to our Clearlake house, fully fenced half acre.
My family and I offer excellent pet care in our home. I also can care for your pet/s in your home. I have a great deal of experience with many types of animals. Between myself, husband Steve, roommate Bonnie and son Robert we can offer nearly 24/7 supervision.
We have pet friendly furniture, tall fenced front and back yards. The back yard is nice and shady in the summer. Livermore has several dog parks that are near my home, one within a short walk of my house.
We do have a 2nd home on 1/2 acre that is fully fenced in Clearlake, CA and I have taken boarding dogs to enjoy a weekend at "Uncle Londo's Memorial Dog Park", when your boarding request & a family weekend away coincide.
I was a veterinary assistant before I married and have kept up to date on pet health issues. I can accept special needs pets and can administer pills, do wound care, injections & sub-Q fluids. I also worked for several pet food retailers & have taken courses in animal care and nutrition. I have experience in training dog agility, sledding, tracking, packing, herding and teaching tricks.
We have 1 dog Bridget and 2 cats Kirk and Khan in residence. Bridget, Kirk and Khan are good with other polite dogs. All potential boarding dogs must be good with cats and/or have very low prey drive.
I do require a meet and greet prior to boarding to ensure a smooth stay.
