I work at home in a quiet suburban neighborhood - 1 mile away from a wonderful 3 acre fenced dog park (includes a separate small dog area for timid pint size pooches), and 1/2 a block from 3 other parks. I have one sweetie pie mutt, Wilson, who is a silly happy guy; he loves all other dogs and really enjoys having doggy guests come to stay :) Your dog will be very loved here!
A typical day for Wilson includes a 3 mile hike on leash or a nice long visit to the dog park (lots of off leash happiness and fetching), and a couple walks around the neighborhood. Wilson is easily entertained and I will cater the exercise and care to your pooch, depending on age and physical needs. I am home working all day, and your dog will be able to relax for that reason. Your best friend will feel like a member of our family!
My house is very low key - an older home with wood and laminate floors and some rugs. While very clean, I do not stress about everything looking perfect all the time. Dog bones and chewy toys are the norm. At night your pooch will sleep beside my bed - on a dog bed next to Wilson's, one of my two crates (small and large), or one that you provide.
I welcome the opportunity for you and your pet to meet me before your dog's vacation begins! At this time you can also provide me with details of your pet's personality, schedule, and special needs. This also gives your dog the chance to get acquainted with the surroundings and have a look around to make sure that they like the place as well. I am just a few blocks off of I-90, very convenient and easy to find.
I've had dogs my whole life and have taken many obedience classes through the years. I understand and can entertain different personalities and older dogs. And, of course, I am happy to send you pics and updates while your dog is here :) I will carry over all your rules or lack thereof depending on your wishes.
Though my kids are grown and on their own, I have two neighbor boys who love to accompany us to the dog park and on walks (see pics). They are likely to give your dog many bonus hugs and snuggles, if you are comfortable with them being involved.
Because this is a home environment, the following house rules apply for safety and comfort of both your dog and Wilson:
- must be 100% housebroken
- must be neutered or spayed
- must not show any aggression or destructive behavior
- must be up-to-date on vaccinations.
- must be relatively clean and in good health
Wilson and I look forward to meeting your four legged family member!
