I love, love, love me some doggies! Sweet Pea (the appropriately named, brown dog in the pics) and Tinker Belle (spunky but friendly like her Peter Pan name sake) are truly my babies. I don't have any kiddos of my own and so my dogs, along with yours when they visit, are treated like my human children that they think they are! I am home most of the day, and we go on walks and/or to the dog park almost daily regardless of the season. Your pooch will fit right in :).
My house has doggie doors so when I am home, the dogs can come and go into the fenced back yard as they want, get their "run" on, and come back in as soon as they're ready. I also let them out regularly.
When I leave the house, Sweet Pea and Tink have their own bedroom suited to their needs where they stay. The "dog room" has a "barn" door, and I never close the top half so they don't feel shut away (see pic). I have a crate, left over from the puppy days, that stays in "the dog room" as some visiting pups/owners like the option of using it (and Tinker Belle has been choosing to go in there ever since I put the cute rug and pillows in there...she's such a diva!! Too funny!!), but I will only use it for your dog if you want me to. You can decide if your pooch would be best there or just free within the dog room, or bring your own crate, or be free to roam in the house based on your previous experience. There are no doggie doors in "the dogs' room", and so for their safety they do not have access to be outside when I am not home.
Because I know how expensive boarding my girls can get, if you have 2 pets then I will only charge $30 a night for the second one.
I am on this site daily via the DogVacay app on my phone which does not allow me to "update" the calendar as I can from my laptop. So even though it may appear that I "Last Updated" quite a while ago, I usually see requests almost immediately and am able to correspond fairly swiftly. :) LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING WITH YOU :)
