Dogs of all sizes welcome (large and XL included)! Only one guest pup at a time, so lots of one-on-one attention! We are a dog-loving family that is ready to give your pooch the perfect retreat while you are away! We only accept one dog at a time, so you know your four-legged family member is getting lots of attention. We have a large dog, so we are familiar with how frustrating it can be to find someone who isn't scared off by your pup's size. Our house and yard are large and can accommodate nearly any breed and size.
Our neighborhood, Baxter Village, is an extremely dog-friendly neighborhood with sidewalks and trails in the forest. Your pooch will get at least one walk per day (weather permitting), but may get two walks on some days. We believe that a well-exercised dog is a well-behaved dog. Our guest pups will be treated as our own in our home and will get lots of love and attention. We offer treats, peanut-butter filled kongs, etc, with your approval. We spend a lot of time outdoors when possible and even have walking trails that we can access from our back yard! We have one dog who thinks that everyone is his best friend. The pups will have all the playtime they want in our fenced-in backyard. It provides plenty of room to run and play with our three children and us. Please be aware that our fence is open-slat so some tiny dogs might be able to squeeze through or under. We also have one cat that gets along well with our dog. Most of the time, he's off somewhere else in the house, though.
My husband and I have both had pets all our lives and have been the primary caregiver for a pet for 19 years. I work from home, so I am here most of the time. If the dogs need to be left unsupervised, any guest pup can relax safely in your crate or our extra-large crate. We require that all guest pups be crate-trained. Our house is smoke-free. You can enjoy your time away stress-free knowing your furry family member is well cared for.
All first-time guest stays must be three nights or less. Repeat guests are welcome to stay up to seven nights. Dogs can be dropped off after 8:00 AM and picked up before 8:00 PM. Please let me know ahead of time when you plan to drop off and pick up, so that we can ensure that we are here.
I require a meet-n-greet for all first-time guests. An up-to-date vaccination record is also required.
