Hi, my name is Keaton! I'm just your friendly neighborhood animal loving punk! I have loved animals my whole life (in fact, my first words were "Hi, puppy!") I grew up with about 8 dogs (yes, all at once!), so I always love having more pups to play with! I will do everything I can to make sure your dog feels at home and comfortable!
I have gone through dog training school and I have a certification, and I've worked in the pet care industry for over a year. I worked at petco for 1 year, and then I was a dog handler/companion at a doggy daycare for nearly 6 months.
I work from home now, on my own schedule, so I can always make myself free, and having some furry friends in my home to care for is always wonderful, and you can be sure your furbaby is getting all of the same love and attention she gets at home!
I have an indoor dog room with two baby gates blocking off the kitchen and living room where my personal dogs are contained during the night. Although I do not have a back "yard," I do have a very large sunroom, much larger than the living room, where the dogs can go out to play during the day. When the windows are open it feels just like outside! I also have an air conditioner and space heater for the sunroom when the weather is not ideal. If the weather is extra yucky, we can all come inside and hang out. Just behind the sunroom there is a private outdoor potty area for the pups. I have lots of dog toys your pup can choose from, and the toys are washed regularly. My dogs are not toy-aggressive at all, but I am trained to be prepared in case a fight does break out over a toy!
My dog Crash absolutely loves all other dogs and is great with both small and large dogs. He's so gentle, he even cuddles with our kitten on a daily basis.
If your dog needs to spend the night, I do ask that she is crate trained and is comfortable sleeping in her crate overnight. In the morning she will get breakfast and playtime with Crash while I have my coffee.
If your dog does not like kitties, that's okay. I can contain my cats downstairs, or keep your dog in the sunroom with Crash during the day.
I do have pet rodents (rats, gerbils & a mouse) but don't worry about your dog hurting or harassing them! They are safely contained in their cages in the attic bedroom above mine. The attic has a bolt lock on the door as well, so your pup will not be able see them, hear them, or go near them.
