Pets cared for at 'Must Love Dogs'' will be treated like part of our family. We are typically at home, with dogs at our feet whether we are reading, gardening, watching t.v., or working on a project or hobby. Ours is a good neighborhood for walking with limited traffic. We have an acre of space where pets may enjoy supervised romping and play. This is adjoined to a forest that is perfect for cold weather, on-leash, exploring. In fact, our yard has been designated by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat for providing the required four basic elements of food, water, cover, and places to raise young to ensure wildlife may thrive. This is a distinction for which we have worked hard and of which we are very proud. We hope it will reflect to you our commitment to animals.
Whether your dog is left alone during grocery errands and run-of-the-mill appointments or given 24/7 supervision depends on the pet and your preferences and will be discussed at our 'Meet and Greet'.
Because we have dogs of our own, we sometimes take just one pet at a time unless multiple dogs come from one owner. When we do have another guest, at least one will be a repeat guest so we will be familiar with their temperament.
We have learned several things that pertain exclusively to 'Must Love Dogs B&B' since being affiliated with this great company...
(1) If your pup is used to using a doggie door, he or she will most likely be confused that there is not one here. No matter how smart pups are, it is unsettling and stressful for them to have to figure out how to communicate (and to a stranger) when they need to potty if they are used to using a doggie door.
(2) If your pet is a full-time outdoor dog with a fenced in yard, please keep in mind that the dogs we keep will always be taken out on leash. Our walks (anywhere from four to seven per day) are meant to be fun and pleasurable. If your dog does not enjoy walking on leash, or is only happy when able to run in a fenced yard, we are probably not the best fit.
3) While we LOVE puppies, if they are not housebroken, or are still prone to marking, please remember that we are opening our home to the pets we keep. We love to have them snuggled up on the sofa with us and even sleeping on the bed, but if your pet hasn't quite outgrown the above mentioned habits they might be happier with a host who has designated doggie areas.
At 'Must Love Dogs B&B' we treat your pups like they are our own. We hope the high number of repeat clients (100% have either boarded again or told us they would) is sufficient testimony to that!
In addition to being owned by dogs since childhood, I have worked on the animal rescue teams of a national animal rescue organization as a socialization and rehabilitation volunteer. My husband is at this party too and it is amazing to see how our guests love to sit in his lap to watch football or tennis with him!
Prior to affiliation with DogVacay, my husband and I have boarded dogs for our friends, family, and priests!
