Used to be a dog (terrier) owner until our move to Canada. Pet-sit friends' dogs & ex-CAARE dog foster. DogVacay host since January 2016. Unfortunately we do not currently have our own dog... which is where yours come in! A home with a dog is a happier home, which is why we love having yours over! :)
House with 2 (tile for bathroom + hardwood) floors, a balcony the dogs love to sunbathe in, and a fully fenced front and back yard that the dogs love to run around in. Three minute walk away from a park. There is a small flight of stairs that leads up to the main front door so if your senior furry friend may have trouble with it, feel free to discuss solutions with me! (eg: the back door that leads directly into the lower level of my house or we can carry your dog up and down!)
Your pet will be loved - promise! With 6 (including myself) [1 sister currently studying abroad but will be back to visit during the holidays] dog lovers in my family, your pup will be guaranteed lots of attention. We stick to the dogs' regular routine as much as possible so that they settle down as soon as possible. So please bring all their things! (food/beds/toys/bowls/leash/etc...) We have 2 refrigerators each with a freezer as well so there is plenty of space to store any food.
Your dog will never be off leash beyond my yard.
What I usually do for when I have 2 dogs (each from a different family) is to have 1 dog on each floor of my house, unless they get along well. There will almost always be someone keeping your doggie company but the amount of interaction between dogs from different families depends on each dog (case by case basis) but it can be very close to none. If this is a concern, please check out my calendar to see if I am already hosting another dog during the dates you're interested in! [a yellow box means I already have one dog booked]
All payments are to be made through DogVacay and are in CAD$. We board large dogs for $40/night (If your large dog is low energy and low maintenance, please contact me if this price is an issue.) & $35/daycare and we're also open to hosting other pets (eg: cats).
DogVacay runs on 24 hour cycles - to ensure full insurance coverage, there will be a late pick-up charge (issued through a custom quote). 3-6hrs : $15 / onwards: $30.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or inquiries!
