My name is Laurie and I've owned several dogs over 35 years. I own one dog now named Oscar. He is a 5 year old Dachshund / Beagle mix and gets along with other dogs very well. In fact he loves the doggie company! I'm confident and strict with the dogs. I use calm assertive discipline and have never had any problems with any dog I've kept. (Thanks Cesar Milan!)
I live on a property that was formally a farm and there is a beautiful large outdoor meadow for the dogs to enjoy - on leash of course. I also have a fenced in back yard which is great for playing fetch or just sniffing around!
I work from home so I have the advantage of taking a noon time walk and I usually get in an early evening walk as well. This also affords me time to do a home visit or a lunchtime walk from your home. (within 5 miles of my home) if that is what you need.
My home has 2 floors. There are also 4 stairs to enter from outside. I give the dogs free range within the home during their stay. Sleeping is only permitted on dog beds or a crate in my spare room. If you have a senior dog that needs my assistance for the stairs I can manage dogs under 40lbs.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and your pet and helping care for and love you furry family member while you are away!
