We have no dogs or cats of our own anymore, and we miss having pets around. (We have owned a golden retriever, a beagle, a boston terrier, and 3 bichons, several mutts as well as cats.)
We have a nice, fenced back yard (see photo) and also a walking park a few blocks away. My husband and I enjoy pampering pooches of all types and sizes from toy yorkies to Bernese mountain dogs (like the one in the photo that we have sat with for years).
We never crate a pet unless the pet is more comfortable in its own crate and only if it prefers it's crate to roaming free. Our house is pet proof and we let them have the run of the house. We let them lounge on our distressed leather sofa with us; and small dogs can sleep with us on the end of our bed. Large dogs can sleep on a quilt at the foot of our bed. In the spring and summer, it's fun to let the dogs dine "al fresco" (i.e. have picnics in the back yard with placemats.)
We try very hard to keep your pet on the exact same schedule that he/she is accustomed to.
Since my husband had his triple bypass surgery, he walks 4 miles every day in the neighborhood walking park and loves to take a dog companion along.
We are retired and at least one of us is always at home. WE SPECIALIZE IN DOGS WITH SEPARATION ANXIETY as we had a rescue dog (Bichon) with that diagnosis who lived to be over 20 years old!
For (2 or more) dogs in the same family, we charge $75 for every 24 hours.
