As a pet mother to five amazing babies, 4 cats and one dog, I take my love of animals and bring it what I do everyday. Fearful and anxious pets are immediately put at ease. I prioritize safety and happiness at all times. I monitor pets closely to ensure no preventable accidents occur and take extra measures to get to know your pet.
The way I parent my pet is probably the best I can describe my philosophy for pet care. My dog Ben eats a combination of very high quality foods from the natural pet store, sometimes even filtered water and snacks like sweet potato, peanut butter. He gets up to 10 back yard breaks a day or about 4-6 hours and one or two walks a day. I run around with him in the yard as well as playing ball. He is almost 12 years old now but people remark that he looks like a puppy.
I use a common sense approach to nurturing dogs. Treat them like family. Due to my experience in taking care of special needs dogs, I am well prepared to take care of a wide range of pet care needs. The entire basement devoted to pet care there is a carpeted section as well as a concrete section where dogs with bladder or gastro issues can rest comfortably. For anxious dogs I am able to sleep immediately next door or even in the same room.
My two large cats stay in the the dog room, they adore their Uncle Ben but tend not to do well with very small dogs. All dogs that love cats are welcome. We currently cannot take on aggressive dogs.
My back yard is large, fenced in and dogs are always monitored while outside. Depending on the weather each dog gets up to 2 walks per day in addition to the multiple back yard playtimes. The dog area is partially carpeted and partially concrete so that destructive dogs and puppies can run amuck without worrying about damage. So there is no additional charge for dogs who may have these issues.
Daycare guests will get lot's of outdoor play time and usually one short walk and a homemade snack.
Boarding guests can get as many as 2-3 walks per day but usually one solo walk so they have a break from other dogs and individual attention. They will get two homemade snacks a day. We usually have outdoor breaks every 1-2 hours including one larger 30 minute outdoor play session.
Overnight at dogs home will include two walks approximately one mile per day weather dependent. Depending on dogs needs and my schedule the night begins at midnight and ends no later than 10am. During the day I stop to feed and walk the dog up to two times. And usually stay for at least 1 hour to provide play time.
