I'm retired, but working part time mornings. I share my home with two low key lovable Miniature Schnauzers, one male (Casey) & one female (Ella). I have mild allergies to pet hair, so can only take non-shedding smaller dogs into my home. I prefer to evaluate who I allow into my home, as I do not want to put my own dogs in harms way with an aggressive animal, therefore, a meet and greet will be required.
I own my own home on 1 acre of land, however, my yard is not fenced in, and I live on a very busy main road. Dogs must arrive with a collar or harness, as they are put out on a lead that runs from my home to a tree out in the backyard or I walk them around my yard. I do have extra collars if needed.
I personally hate leaving my dog in a kennel if I have to be away, so would like more people in this area to offer this same type of service. That's why I've decided to offer this service out to others. My objective is to house an animal to make it feel like it is in a home away from home, rather than in a sterile kennel environment with dogs barking all around them and no one around at night to care for them. I am known to spoil animals that I care for and fall madly in love with them all.
If needed, and if the dog is not aggressive, I can also groom and bathe your pet, but did not want to offer this up as a service, but rather on a case basis. That would incur an additional $10 fee for bathing and an additional $35 for grooming. I groom my own dogs every 6 weeks. I've also been known to trim nails and clean teeth for free as a caring service, as needed, and if allowed by the owner.
Proof of vaccinations for rablies, distemper & kennel cough will be expected at meet and greet.
