My name is Peter. I've had dogs all my life. I have developed an amazing rapport with dogs because, while I am full of love for them, I also have clear rules, boundaries and limitations. Dogs are animals that, overwhelmingly, look for a pack leader to indicate to them what to do and what not to do.
My fiancee and I live in Silver Lake right on the reservoir. We love taking our own dog, Fern, on walks along that 2.2 mile path every day. Fern is 6 years old, and to date, has never bitten a soul - dog or human. She's very affectionate, loves to play, but also knows when to keep her distance if another dog doesn't want to be bothered.
We have a great fenced-in back yard with lots of room and toys for your pooch. There are two points of entry into the yard (photos attached), and both gates have activating latches to ensure that your pet will not be able to get loose. Hopefully, they'll be having too much fun to ever want to leave! Fern prefers to lounge in the sun almost the entire day. If she has friends over, she loves to play with them in the grass.
If you have a slower dog who prefers to be left alone, then there are quiet places in the house for your pup to nap and relax while they await for you to come and get them. We have dog beds in our kitchen and the office upstairs.
We offer boarding, day-care, walks, and baths.
One non-negotiable that I have is that I MUST meet people and their dogs prior to ANY arrangement. I like to have all dogs come and meet Fern to ensure that everyone gets along. An immediate walk along the reservoir normally does the trick. This is only for first-time customers. Once the dogs have met, the rest is cake. This meet and greet policy is in place to ensure the safety of people and pups alike.
Finally, most importantly: I understand the sacred bond that you have with your dog. I will look after any animal as if they were my own.
I look forward to helping you out with your doggie needs in the near future. Please check my calendar for entire weeks that I am available, as well as whole weeks when I am off work. I am a schoolteacher, so winter, spring, and summer breaks are a great time of availability for me.
