Hi and welcome. We are starting into this venture because we love dogs, and would love to have an occasional companion for our little border terrier, Nikki. Our other dog is an older golden, Cleo the carpet, we call her...as she is not very energetic anymore. And so, having another dog to play on occasion with Nikki seems really nice, and occasionally having another dog in the house sounds like fun also.
FYI--We only watch small to medium sized dogs.
I am a xray technician and my husband is a wildlife biologist, and between the two of us we have been caring for various pets for decades. We offer a comfortable home, with a large yard. Our two dogs are easy going, the little one loves to play. We will keep you updated with daily pictures. The large yard and playing with our little dog will be like a spa vacation for your dog!
A typical day: the dogs are let out for an hour or so, and then again at noon on the days I work full time. On the days I work part time, they are let out more often. My husband gets home at 3pm each day, and the dogs are fed and out for as long as they wish to be out. While inside, they have free roam of our main living level, and generally hang out with us, and occasionally play inside and out. If you request it, we can take your dog for a walk around the neighborhood each night as well. At night our dogs have been trained to stay downstairs, as your dog is new to our house we think it would be easier to have your dog in a crate. We will put our dog bed next to the crate so your dog will have company through the evening.
If you dog requires oral medication, we can provide that. We only watch one dog at a time, so your dog will receive that extra attention when staying with us.
