Welcome to Newman Dog Paradise!
I am 26 and live in College Park, MD and am a proud owner of a 2.5 year old lab named Dakota. I have been a dog lover ever since I was a little girl and think they are the most amazing animals on this planet! I am a firm believer that a tired dog is a good dog (and a happy one!) and also a firm believe in positive reinforcement. Your dog would be in good hands here!
About the apartment:
My boyfriend and I live in a two bedroom 1140 sq.ft. apartment. Right outside our apartment is a large fenced in private courtyard where we take our dog and his friends out to run around play. We also go for tons of walks during the day and if your dog likes to run, we can also go on runs! My apartment is 100% puppy/dog proof so no matter the age, all are welcome, even ones who have not yet mastered the art of potty training. We personally let or dog up on the couches and bed but if you don't let your dog up on couches/bed, we will make sure to stick with your rules and guidelines. We also keep all food off the counters and tables so there will never be an incident of them accidentally getting into something.
About our life:
We both work M-F 9-5 but depending on your dog (and if they would be staying during the week), I have an extra-large crate, a puppy gate for the kitchen, or a spare bedroom with a puppy gate so they don't feel enclosed. They can be kept together if your dog has separation anxiety or separately if they typically enjoy their sleep during the day. On weekends, I am usually home all the time and would provide 24/7 supervision for the dogs.
Because of the pet policy of our apartment complex, unfortunately some breed restrictions apply. They do not allow American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Rottweiler or Doberman Pinscher.
My dog is amazingly and patient with puppies. Adult dogs are of course welcome too. Dakota is very gentle with small dogs and loves to romp around with the big ones. We have no kids and no cats, so the only requirement is that they are dog friendly.
If your dog needs a bath, I can do that! We have a ton of dog shampoo here, but if you have a preference, you can provide your own.
I can also give your dog medication if they are taking any at the moment or if they are due for their flea/tick treatment.
What I ask of you:
Please bring your dog's food.
If you have a certain treat you give your dog that you'd like him/her to have, please bring that.
Please bring any bedding / lovies that your dog likes.
If your dog is still potty training, please bring a bottle of natures miracle to clean up the accidents :)
I absolutely love having extra dogs in the house and I guarantee your dog will have an amazing time staying with us. Not only will they have my dog to romp around with, but we make sure to get in some extra cuddle time with the humans too :) If you would life to meet us and check out the apartment, feel free to shoot me a message and we can schedule a time!
