About Steve & Kristal

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
ABOUT US:

Our home will offer your dog lots of attention and playtime. We have four young boys mixed with a whole lot of activity at the house. Your dogs will be active and exhausted throughout the day. We also have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever that gets along with all dogs; she will help acclimate your dog to our home. We have a FULL fenced in yard with plenty of room to run. We ask that your dog is KID & DOG friendly as typically it's busy here. We will respect and follow your dog's routine and care. If you create, we will create. If they are not allowed on a couch, we will do what you do & so on. Dogs will sleep anywhere as the beds are always full!!! Typically dogs will have free roam of our home and be treated like our dog. Pictures will typically be sent throughout the day to cell or webpage. We want your experience to be relaxing too! Your dog will be exhausted by the end of each day and will never know you left. Most importantly someone is ALWAYS HERE with them throughout the day, with the exception of minor running around.

We prefer your pets spayed & neutered. Dogs that are not fixed, no matter how wonderful they are, have an overwhelming tendency to mark. It is an unfortunate part of the business but with a high volume of dogs one marking or accident will cause a domino effect. All dogs MUST BE HOUSE BROKEN, no potty training is offered.

PICK UP & DROP OFF:
Please be mindful of pick & drop off times, visit charge is for a roughly a 24 hour period. A custom quote with be sent if the pick up and drop off times are longer than normal. Early drop off / later pick up following day. A CUSTOM QUOTE will be send if need be. We are flexible but unfortunately we need to address this issue as the site only recognizes an evening stay.

YOUR PETS:
Please share with us all concerns or issues that your dog may have during our meet and greet sessions. It is not fair to us finding out new information while you are dropping off your dog, ESPECIALLY bowel or bladder problems.

TRAINING:
I would be happy to work with your dog including puppy training and any issues that may need improvement or areas that you may not be able to correct. I work with most issues, barking, walking (pulling), jumping, basic discipline, basic commands, socializing and more. Typically in 3-5 sessions (1-2 hours) you will have enough assistance and information to work with you dog and continue to improve to make a better dog. YOUR help is necessary for the progress training and a key to the success. Referrals can be provided. Also, I am willing to come to you and train in your environment.

Thank you for checking us out, we won't disappoint !

This was our first Dog Vacay experience and it certainly won't be our last. I did not want a kennel setting where my 2 rescue dogs would be back in cages for 4 days- no way! I really loved Steve & Kristals reviews and was very impressed with how many return customers they had! Now they have another!!!! I never worried. They were wonderful! We felt very comfortable leaving our guys with them-I knew they were in the best hands!
Kristal sent us a lot of pictures everyday and we could see how much fun they were having with the other dogs there. Great yard, atmosphere, and great, caring people! We hit the jackpot!
I will recommend them to all my friends and use them again and again!

Cooper had at great time at Steve & Kristal's house! He loved playing in the big backyard. Steve and Kristal took good care of him and sent us pictures during the day. We're looking forward to scheduling more days for him to stay at their house.
Brownie had a great time during her stay. She was calm and was well cared for. Thank you for the pictures and updates!
