I am retired and I am at home most of the time. I currently have a Sheltie named Laddie, thus the name Laddieland as that is what I call my backyard.
I love dogs and have a lot of experience with all types. I have had two Shelties, a Beagle, Lasa Apso, and of course the "designer dogs" (we used to call them muts), and my 80 year old mother had a wild and crazy Jack Russell Terrier that I loved.
Your dog will be cared for in the house as a family member and spend time outside attended on nice days. I have a nice backyard that is completely fenced with lots of room to run and explore. I don't use any chemicals in my yard as I don't what to harm my animals.
I would prefer one dog at a time, but will consider taking care of two, if they are in the same home. I find it's often difficult for a dog to be boarded with a dog(s) they don't know. I have some regular pups that do not want to compete with another dog and have acted out, letting me know they do not want any competition. They all get along well with Laddie, as they have stayed so often, but new dogs can be a problem So, it's just not fair to either dog(s).
I also require non-aggressive dogs, of course.
I would also require a health record from your Vet. showing your dog is updated on all required shots as well as flea protection.
My rate is $30 per night per dog.
I also do occasional day care @$20 per day. I don't do it on a regular basis, however.
Thank you for reading my profile. Please send me any questions that you might have.
