For dogs kept in our home, they daily receive 6 – 8 supervised yard playtimes/potty breaks. 2 - 20 minute walk/jog in our neighborhood or possibly in the park, plenty of in-house or lanai relaxation as well as tummy scratches & TLC.
Trips to the nearby dog park (4 mi) may possibly take place, however for an additional fee, you may add this event as part of your dog's daily activity.
Dogs sleep in their own beds in our bedroom or curled up on the ottoman or armchair when that better suits them. If your dog is more comfortable sleeping in a crate, then please bring it with you. If your dogs sleeps with you and will not accept any alternate arrangement, then our home set up is not the place for your dog.
Our owned smoke-free and child-free home is located on a picturesque pond and the medium-sized yard with a 4' fence, faces the pond. The lanai has a dog door for small and medium dogs, providing easy access to the yard.
Inside, our home is open, spacious and comfortable, where dogs can relax or play at their leisure.
We have gates to separate rooms where compatible dogs can congregate together. Every guest's wellness and safety, as well as our own K9's is our utmost concern.
Bailey Beagle is my 9.5 yr old friendly-host who greets and welcomes each guest with gusto! We also are a foster home for SouthEast Beagle Rescue so frequently have an additional beagle with us.
Respectfully, I do not accommodate in my home the following breeds/mixes: German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman, Bully Breeds or Huskies of any age or size.
Unless you are from out of town or state, I like to schedule a meet & greet with you so I can see how your dogs interact with us and our beagles in our home and for you to assess us to determine if we are the best fit. I also may require your dog to stay for a half-day, full day or overnight to assess their suitability. All regular service fees apply.
If your dog has special needs or you desire specialized care (ie: more pampering, extra walks, dog park visits, exclusive boarding etc), then I will assess each dog and it's needs individually and provide you a custom price quote.
Puppies: after a meet & greet consultation, we will provide you a custom quote.
LARGE dogs: Sorry, we no longer accommodate large dogs of any breed in our home.
All dogs are required to be clean, healthy, on a parasite, heartworm and flea prevention regimen, have mandatory (by Law) vaccination(s).
If your dog is incontinent, has anxiety or submission urination or marks (males), you must provide the necessary diapers/belly bands. If your dog is not potty trained, then we must decline to provide services, as we have light carpeting throughout the home.
If your dog requires medication or injections, they must be accustomed to receiving it and be cooperative while it is being administered.
All dogs must be comfortable with, friendly-to and non-aggressive with other dogs. If your dog(s) suffers from separation anxiety or will not settle down to sleep at night, whines, howls or barks for extended periods of time, alternate boarding arrangements may have to be made. Please make us aware of any fears, phobias or behaviors during our meet & greet.
*If your dog is raw fed or eats homemade meals, that is a specialty of mine* :)
I live half-way between Orlando and Tampa and 7 miles from LEGOLAND , so are in an ideal location for your small or medium dogs day or overnight needs. If you are nearby, you are welcome to visit during the day or take your dog out for a while.
