Hi and welcome to Little Dog B&B, dog sitting in Collegeville PA.
I have a wonderful single family home with a covered deck and a lovely fenced in yard for your dog to explore. I do work full time M-F and I'm gone for 8 1/2 hours during the day, but I'm home every night and weekends. I also offer daycare on Saturday and Sundays and holidays only. The best guests for me are ones which are used to the owners being gone during the day.
The school year has started so I will only be working from home one day a week. Due to my work schedule and my daughters school schedule, pick ups and drop offs that occur during the week are after dinner only 6;30-8 :00 pm.
I have a large group of repeat guests so I do allow up to 3 dogs on any given day. I know the regulars very well and know who can be mixed and who can't. I will often try to watch a new guest by themselves or at the very least have only a few days of over lap. I like the opportunity to get to know a new guest with some one on one time and for this reason I may mark my calendar as unavailable when I only have one guest. Please check my calendar for availability I'm very vigilant with my calendar so it is always up to date.
I have a 10 year old daughter, who LOVES animals so all guests need to be tolerant of children. I currently work in the corporate world, however I was a vet tech for 2 years and have experience with senior and special needs pets.
I host ONLY small to medium sized dogs (40 pounds or less) with a soft spot for senior dogs or those with special needs. I will watch puppies but they must be small breed puppies. If I'm not booked with any small dog guests,
We recently lost both dogs and our cat. Currently there are no resident dogs in the house. However, we have recently adopted a kitten and we are slowly introducing him to the dog guests so all guests must be cat tolerant / friendly. All of my personal pets have been rescues so I have over 15 years of experience with the special needs of rescues including physical and emotional.
All guest dogs are welcome on the furniture and in the bed if that is where they normally sleep. If your dog is crate trained please bring your crate it helps the dog feel more comfortable if he or she is in her own crate.
All dogs need to be housebroken or crate trained. My neighborhood is dog friendly so if your dog likes to go for walks they will have one every night. I can administer oral medication as well as Sub Q fluids and diabetic injections. I live 3 miles from a 24 hour Vet Emergency hospital.
All dogs must be on a flea preventative treatment and should be current on vaccines and heartworm prevention.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Enjoy your vacation!
I do offer daycare on the weekends ( Saturday and Sunday) for $20.00 per day
