( Currently suspended in home boarding )
We are a family with a year round rotating pack of pups. We've been hosting through Dogvacay since August 2013. Most of our pack are repeat pups who have become quite comfortable in our home. They look forward to their vacation with our family as well as with other revolving pack members. I know exactly how a particular grouping will get along before they even arrive - the evolution of my pooch pad exceeds my greatest expectations. I feel so blessed to have arrived at this level of dog husbandry and be able to call it my job.
More on the pooch pad: We live in a dog-friendly walkable and hike-able community. Our guest pups live with us in our home as would our own. We provide basic obedience reinforcement, meals, treats, supervised socialization, walks, play, and rest time. I find a well exercised and socialized dog is content and happy and this makes for a balanced household.
Spring temperatures allow for ample walks! I may walk in the morning with my youngest in the stroller or on my back. We may also walk or hike in the afternoon or early evening when the whole family can go. We also have a fenced yard big enough for even a Great Dane to run chase and play in. The yard provides many daily opportunities for fetch and exercise with the other pups.
At home, my guest dogs and I keep each other company throughout the day. In my home office, I often have resting dogs gathered around my feet.
Before leaving our home I make sure all pups are safe. Many dogs are free to choose whichever cozy corner best suits them, others may require separate rooms and high energy or chewers may be safest in an appropriate sized crate.
My husband, I, and three boys love caring for dogs in our home because of all the great breeds and personalities we encounter as well as the long-term furry friend we are acquiring.
