If you drop off your pup at our house, they will be treated with kindness, respect, and all the cuddles they are comfortable with. We live in a pet friendly home with 6 current residents: 3 human, 1 canine (pug, Walden), and 2 feline (Pants & Brioche). [Note: If your dog has any issues with cats, please let us know and we are able to separate the animals.]
We live in a 3-bedroom row house that is animal-proof with comfy places for animals to nap or play throughout the house. Dogs are allowed on couches, chairs, and my (Izzy's) bed. [Note: Dogs are welcome to sleep in my bed or I am happy to set up an area. If you'd like them to be in a crate, please provide as I don't have one.]
Doors to rooms where the dogs shouldn't go are simply closed to avoid confusion. I work from home and mornings tend to be spent with breakfast, a morning walk, and then naptime or playtime while I do some work. Depending on the dog and the weather, afternoons/evenings are spent in the backyard playing or cuddling. Working at home allows me to pay attention to and respond to animals' needs as they arise. While this is typical, I am happy to accommodate and do whatever makes your dog feel at ease.
We have a small, gated front yard where the dogs are encouraged to go to the bathroom. We live on a city street and have kind neighbors who often come over to pet (though always ask first) whichever dogs are around. We live on the same block as a dog park, which always has at least a few dogs playing around -- even in the rain! [Note: If your dog does not like the dog park or is not up to date on medications or vaccines, let us know and we will not take them to the park.] We also have a sizable backyard with some turf down for playing with the dogs and giving them space to be outside.
