We are animal lovers and have been caring for pets for 10 years. Your dogs will get plenty of attention with us:) Our new house is a pretty Victorian with a nice, spacious yard, on the border of Berkeley and Emeryville in Oakland. We're a 1/2 block from a huge park that welcomes dogs. Our house has large bay windows and is full of sun, with plenty of places for napping between walks and play time.
I am home half-days on weekdays so your pets will have company the majority of the time, and am around all weekend. My partner gives our dog (and any visiting dogs) a morning walk, and I do an afternoon and an evening walk. I usually go by the park during the afternoon walk for play time (with owner approval). A couple times a week I do the afternoon walk at Ashby Beach, the Emeryville or Berkeley Marinas, or the Albany Bulb. We usually go on long walks or hikes both weekend days to Tilden or Redwood and bring the dog(s). We usually have a couple play sessions in the yard in the afternoon and evening.
Your dog is welcome to sleep in the bedroom with us, or out in the living or dining room. They are welcome on the bed or the floor (depending on owner instructions), and we are happy to put a crate on the floor if you prefer.
Our living and dining rooms are carpeted. We have runner rugs in the kitchen and hallway, and Persian rugs in our bedroom, so the house is slip-free. We are in the process of building a ramp down the back stairs, and it will be finished at the beginning of January.
We cook our dog meat and greens for dinner to help with his arthritis, and are happy to cook for your dog too. The dogs have free range of the house, and can go in and out as they please. We have baby-gates that we can use to restrict access to the yard if you prefer.
Our dog is great with other dogs. We look forward to meeting your dog!
