About Allison

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Follow our dog adventures on Facebook at Right at Home Dog Boarding (or /rightathomePDX)!

Your dog will feel right at home here! We have a lot of fun! We go on walks, hikes, and head to the off leash dog park to play ball (if you permit) We are very close to Laurelhurst Park, Mt Tabor Park, and we also love Fernhill and 1000 Acres. Warm and cozy inside when it is cold outside! Sometimes we even have a woodstove fire! Cool and refreshing inside when it is hot outside, we have fans and AC!

I am a dog lover that has always had 1-4 dogs in my life at all times, fostered many dogs, and have also worked with dogs that needed special attention from Family Dogs New Life Shelter and Fences for Fido . I love dogs with all my heart, and their comfort comes first. I also work for myself, so dogs can remain with me all day, whether at home or at the studio. I have a large crate if needed/requested, and I am familiar with dogs with special needs. 24/7 care is possible if requested as well. I have two dogs that make great playmates, yet at the same time, if your dog is a king or queen and likes to be an only child, I have the ability to keep your dog separate, comfortable and at peace. I own my own home, have lots of dog beds, and dogs are always allowed inside at all times!! I will also text you daily with photo updates of our adventures!

I have a 4 PM or later drop off (4-7 PM) and a 10 AM or earlier pick up (8-10 AM), or else doggy day care ($29) applies for one or both respective start/end days. If you need a drop off before 8 AM or a pick up later than 7 PM, I request that you just leave your dog for an additional night of boarding. In a complete and total bind, I will allow pick ups past 7 PM or before 8 AM, but it is $15 for every hour or increment thereof. I don't do midday pick ups and drop offs, especially on the weekend, because we are almost always out on dog adventures - walks, hikes, beach, mountains.

In addition, as a bonus if requested, for an additional $99 I will photograph your dog in my studio and give you 5 of the best low res photo files! (see photos). High res photos, prints, or the whole CD can be purchased in addition, please inquire Cash, check, or credit card accepted, separate charge at the time of pickup.

* Pickup/Drop Off rates are $10 for under 5 miles, out and back in one trip ie: if you live 7 miles from me, drop off or pick up will be $14. If you live anything under 5 miles away, it will be a flat fee of $10.

** (ONLY OFFERING HOUSESITTING FOR REPEAT CUSTOMERS AT THIS TIME) House sitting fee (within 5 miles) is $150 per night for 1 dog. Add $50 for a second dog, and add $25 for any additional dog (over 2). Add $29 per cat or other animal. $1/mile/night added for house sitting over 5 miles away. I will do additional things as well, such as bring in the mail, water plants, whatever you need, within reason :) I will spend the night in your home, and spend some time there during the day. All dogs will receive 2 walks.

*** Even if I am marked BOOKED on the calendar, please don't hesitate to contact me via a general inquiry or a custom quote. It means there will be at least 3 dogs here boarding - if your dog is mellow and gets along with all dogs, it will most likely be no problem. We have more than enough room and people to keep a watchful eye and go out for adventures!! Send your general inquiry now!

****Dogs over 80 lbs are $60 per night. Please provide all details and send a general inquiry. Dogs must have good leash walking skills and obedience training.

*****Puppies 1 year old and younger are $75 per night. If your puppy is 6 months to 1 year, and you believe your dog is mature for it's age, you can leave your dog for a day of trial daycare and, if they pass the criteria, (ie: has some obedience training, is potty trained, no longer chews, is independent, and is kennel trained), the rate will be the regular rate ($45) for future stays. Daycare is $29 for under 6 hours or attached to a boarding stay. Standalone daycare is $45 for over 6 hours. I do accept unaltered puppies under 6 months.

Late pickups (after a 30 min grace period) incur a $15/hour fee in addition to regular daycare charges.

My holiday boarding rate is $50/night.

Allison was awesome! She was great at communicating and had a checklist of what to bring prior to Wrigley's stay, which made packing super easy. Wrigley had a great time playing with the other pups there and I received a picture/video everyday which made me happy to see he was having a good time.
We think Allison is amazing, and more importantly, so does our pup Felix. A great experience for everyone!
