I'm an animal lover and I grew up with dogs. I raised my two Shih Tzus Coco and Simsim since they were 2 months old, they are now 9 and 8 years old. My dogs are very friendly with other dogs, having other dogs come and stay in the house is like a play date for them.
I have a big house and a big back yard for the dogs to run around and play. My back yard is fenced and faces Seneca Creek State Park and has a lot of shade for the dogs to run around safely, play and relax. I've been hosting dogs for my family, friends and neighbors for 8 years before I became a sitter at Dogvacay, I hosted six different breeds of dogs, varying in size during the holidays many times. I work from home and my husband works from home most of the time, so there is always someone here for the dogs. Dogs have all the freedom in the house to play and sleep on any couch or chair they desire. My husband and I enjoy playing with the dogs, watching the dogs play off leash in the back yard is a joy for the Pawtel family.
All dogs must be fully potty trained, neutered or spayed and vaccinated, must be on a veterinary approved flea medication to visit. For the safety and comfort of guest dogs and my own dogs, I don't accept aggressive dogs.
Pick-up and drop-off times are 24 hours a day at no extra charge. Every day includes 3 walks plus unlimited indoor and outdoor playtime. Meet-n-Greet will take place in Quince Orchard Valley Park, it's a dog friendly community park in a residential area with a small parking lot, located at 12015 Suffolk Terrace, which is a half mile away from my house, I will give you a tour of my back yard and house right after.
