Update 10/6/2016: We recently rescued a kitten. I am willing to work with my previous frequent booking clients on this.. however if you are a new client or have only been with me once and you know your dog is not good with cats, please look for another sitter. We love having pups visit us, but it really takes the fun out of it to have to constantly be on them about trying to get/being too rough with the cat! :) Hope you understand!
I love dogs! I have two labs of my own. My husband owns a few reptiles and is available to assist with any reptile needs you may have while away. Please note that ALL of our reptiles are safely locked in the guest bedroom and away from view/reach of any animals boarded in my home.
I know that when I am away from home, it is important to me that my girls stick to their routine of going out in the morning before breakfast, and going out again and getting some play time before dinner. I am happy to work with you to ensure that your fur kids maintain their regular routine while you are away, too.
Regarding in-home boarding, I have an enclosed back porch that is my "dog room" which is shared with my two labs, so my service is only offered to clients with pets who are dog friendly. This room is equipped with concrete floors, so accidents are no problem. It also has a twin sized bed, so there's room for everyone! This bed is placed low to the ground so our senior pups have no trouble accessing it.
PLEASE feel free to send me a message if you have questions or concerns. I am happy to work with you! Don't think that your situation won't work and be afraid to ask. I have turned clients away when I don't think it's safe for the dog to be in my home, but more often than not, I can easily accommodate your needs. I will board intact animals, just please note I will not board two dogs of the opposite sex that are intact at the same time. I can accommodate food aggressive dogs, however if your dog is aggressive towards people or other dogs regularly, that is something I cannot accommodate. If you have a different situation, please ask me about it! My family loves animals, and we want to help you keep your pet out of a traditional kennel situation. If we don't seem like the right fit for you, we wish you happy travels and hope you find the perfect place for your pups!
