I have been a dog lover and owner my entire life. I grew up with large breed dogs, but I appreciate all sizes and breeds and understand that it's important to have a place for your loved ones to go where they will be well-cared for and receive lots of love, attention and exercise.
My husband and I have experience with dogs and animals of all sizes and we offer a very dog-friendly environment. Our yard is fenced, featuring 6' stockade fence along the main road and 4' chain-link along the back of our property. I am home daily, and my husband is available to assist on his days off. I occasionally have an appointment, but we can crate your dog if necessary, or allow them free-roam of our home if they are not prone to chewing, marking territory or dog aggression.
Our dogs have free access to our fenced-in, half acre yard and are given daily exercise. They are mellow and get along well with other dogs of similar temperament. We regularly dog-sit for family and friends and can provide a meet and greet as well as references. We offer a kiddie pool for their enjoyment during those hot summer days and plenty of room to run and toys to play with. I typically play with our dogs in the morning for half an hour to an hour (depending on their energy level) and then another exercise session in the afternoon. In our experience, a tired dog is a happy dog, and that's certainly something we strive for.
We are available for doggie day care as well as drop-ins at your residence or overnight stays at our home. We can arrange for house-sitting for your pets at your residence also, if desired.
We do require that your dog is up-to-date on shots, including Kennel Cough. This is both for the protection of our pets and yours. We do not have any other animals at our home, so we are a good environment for a cat-hating pooch!
We will offer to feed your dog daily, depending on drop-off and pick-up times for day care. Our dogs eat twice a day; once in the morning when I get up, and again in the afternoon, approximately between 4 and 5 pm.
Does your loved one follow a special diet? No problem! We will be happy to feed based on your specifications/feeding schedule. Our dog, Timber, has a very finicky stomach, so we understand dietary restrictions. We do not provide typical dog treats to our dogs; we instead give them only carrots (which they LOVE!) so if you have treats that you regularly provide your dog, please send that along when they come to visit.
We are flexible regarding drop-off and pick-up times for doggie day care, and are willing to work out any special arrangement you may require. If you have an alternative work schedule, please contact us as we would be happy to discuss options with you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
