Your dog will truly be on a Dogvacay in every sense of the word ! Providing comfort for every dog in our care is truly our biggest prerogative, as you will see for yourself, once you visit our doggy sanctuary. We are very attentive and loving doggy parents. They are our family.
Your furry ones will be treated as a loving member of our little pack. My goal is that your pooch will be as pampered and attended to just as our own.
Our home is your fur baby's "home away from home"! Our home is very clean, non-cluttered, a very calm and peaceful environment (instrumental music is always on in our house.) A truly great environment for any senior dog or dog who has anxieties/medical issues.
We do not crate or kennel our Doggy Vacay guests.
They are free to cuddle up on any couch, bed or doggy cushions. There are no restrictions.
We have taken great care to doggy-proof our home to ensure pets are safe:
°We have safety proofed banister - it's actually thinner than plexi glass and is meant for pet proofing banisters. (If interested....ordered off Amazon!)
°There is also a baby gate on the top floor to avoid any stairs being used. If desired.
°Dog ramps - dog ramps placed in front of our couches and bed for easy mobility to help preserve our dogs joints well into their senior years.
°Custom-made doggy benchs for the windows! They can sit under the windows in order to have full view of the outside.
Our Neighborhood & Yard:
°We own our own home and have lived in Lake Bonavista here in SE Calgary for 14 yrs. (We do not have children.)
°Our backyard is artificially turfed, has a large 7 foot high fence, it is completely secured ( meaning the fence goes all the way down to the ground, no gaps in the bottom of the fence.) It is a very wide open lot
Take comfort in knowing that whilst you are on vacation, your Pup will be on a Playcation!
I have more doggy toys than I can count ! Play time is a must in our home. We go to great lengths to make it the most fun and memorable time for your furry one and customize every playtime to the unique personality traits and desires of each one.
°I love to walk so we can go on as many or few walks a day that suit your precious pooch!
°When needed I can carry your senior dogs and can also make use of our Pet Zip, taking them on walks with us in the Zip! (See picture in my photo gallery.)
Your dog will always be left out free roam the house on the top floor and curl up on the couches, snuggle up into the fuzzy blankets scattered about. Climb on my lap or lay on the floor together for a good belly rub!
°I am a certified Dog groomer, after a first time visit, should your dog be in need of a very basic groom, nail trim/bath, this could be of great benefit for your pooch during their boarding stay.
°I have had years of pet care employment experience.
°I am in-tune with dogs and gear my care towards their unique characteristics.
I currently work PT at a Non-Profit company, as a Community Support Worker with children and adults who have disabilities. My workload is light and is flexible. A few years ago I also worked in Companion Care, with Seniors residing in long Term Care facilities. Having found that many seniors were in need of dog grooming services, I decided to start up mobile grooming for their small dogs. ( Just basic shave downs and nail care.)
Most evenings in our house are spent going for a big walk, making dinner at home, then winding down watching a movie, whilst our dogs curl up next to us on our extra large comfy sectional.
( Please, only Well behaved pooches accepted, completely Potty Trained and able to play respectfully with my small dogs.).
We prefer to take in smaller breeds, but will happily consider a medium size dog , should they be of calm demenear, play well and are respectful of smaller dogs.
We love all dogs and have a soft spot for the senior senior doggies, Should your dog have medical or special needs, we welcome them and will be sure to give them the extra love and care that they so deserve and need.
We will consider puppies, only if they are completely potty trained, not too hyper active and have reached the point of being able to listen to basic commands.
(There will be an extra small fee of $ 5.00 a night added on all holiday weekends and for dogs with special needs.)
