My Home: I live in a beautifully renovated 1250 sq ft 1950's bungalow in Renfrew. Conveniently located in the inner city just off 16th Avenue and Deerfoot Trail with close proximity to the Calgary International Airport. My home is a block off a very quiet off leash park and a few blocks away from busier Tom Cambell's Hill Natural off leash park. The flooring in my home is hardwood which is very strong and durable. It has to be for 2 puppies right? My home also has a big grassy backyard which is fully fenced in.
My Pups: I am the mom of a 7 pound Blue Pomeranian named Rosco, and a 12 pound Red Cockapoo named Ruby. Rosco aka the majestic urban fox has a Napoleon complex whose most lethal weapons are being a prominent socialite, giving un-relentless kisses and a having a killer smile. His favorite thing to do is chew on squeaky toys and go to the off leash park. A visit to the off leash park isn’t complete unless Rosco has said hello to every dog, and human in the park.
Ruby aka suckerpunch is a giant heart breaker. She is 12 pounds of beautiful curly red fur, giant floppy ears and big brown puppy eyes. She makes humans and canines alike weak in the knees. Ruby thinks she is a Golden retriever as her favorite thing to do is retrieve balls. She will retrieve balls for hours at the off leash park. Ruby is pretty shy when she meets new dogs but by the end of their stay she gets quite attached to her new friends. After we walk, socialize at off leash parks and play fetch we generally go home and have a delicious treat and dinner. Then we are usually so tired we all cuddle up together and have a nice relaxing puppy nap.
Schedule: I am a professional that works downtown so my work week is 7:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. I am generally away from the house for a 9 hour (or less) period. However please note that from May 1st to September 7th I have Friday's off from work. While I am at work or away from the house Ruby and Rosco have free range of the house. Generally speaking, most of the guest pups that book stays with us book for extended weekends. For example: Thursday night to Monday. That being said I have many guests that are comfortable with my work schedule and book with me throughout week days or for weeks at a time.
Preferences: It is my strong preference to do a meet and greet with guest pups and their parents. Even though Ruby and Rosco are only 5 years old, they both have very mellow and relaxed dispositions. Therefore I prefer to specialize in Toy, Small & Medium Breeds that are a bit older or have similar temperaments. It is important to me that your pup and my pups have great chemistry before accepting a booking request. Also I generally only accept one booking at a time. This means your pup truly joining a family for their stay and my attention will not be divided with other guest pups.
What makes me special as a host is that my home is full of love and puppies! My puppies spend very little time on a leash because my home backs onto an off leash park. Off leash adventures aren't a weekend activity in our home. It is a multiple times a day activity! I like to keep hosting intimate, and provide individual attention so the dogs on vacation with me will return home fitter, happier, healthier and more relaxed than they arrived.
One of my best friends and Ruby and Rosco's favorite auntie named Chanelle has recently found herself out of a job due to the economic downturn in the city. We are using this as an advantage to ofter further daytime adventures to guest pups during days I am at the office. Chanelle stays in my home and watches Ruby and Rosco anytime I am away on vacation. Ruby & Rosco absolutely adore her and are loving all of the extra attention they are getting. Plus Chanelle is taking them on hour long morning walks and hour long afternoon walks before I even get home from work. So many puppy walks!!
