We are long-time super-mega dog lovers and we have been hosting dogs in our home for several years now. Fun and safety are our top priorities!. We heavily screen all visiting dogs for aggression so that we can best ensure a happy and safe environment for all dogs. We have never had an incident of aggression and have never even had to take a visiting dog off site. Our home is located at the end of a "dead end" road with very little traffic and our yard is fully fenced. We have four sweet and friendly dogs of our own and we live on a half-acre mini-farm with our dogs, chickens, ducks, and goats. The dogs have access to all areas of the property except for the uber-secure farm animal yards (we've never had a dog versus chicken incident or anything like that).
Our standing joke at home is that we (myself and my husband) live in an enormous dog house; also known as our home. All of our house is dog friendly in that they are allowed on couches, chairs, beds and wherever else they want to lounge -- including our onsite cabin!
We are clean and tidy, yet we tolerate "accidents" and minor damage because we know that everything can be cleaned and repaired.
When we host your dog, your dog is treated as one of our own! He or she can have full reign of the house and property to run free and hang out with their new buddies!
At night time: our dogs sleep in our bed with us. Yours is welcome to do so as well, if they are able to relax and rest. If not, we will either let the dog choose where they would like to sleep or we will follow your preferences and requests.
At least one of us is at home approximately 20 hours each day, but can be at home 24 hours each day if needed. We own our own small business so we can be flexible with our work schedules. We don't travel much because of our own animals, so we are pretty much always available. Please note, however; that we cannot accommodate pickups or dropoffs on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.
Puppies under the age of 12 months old will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Approval will be contingent upon the evaluation.
Puppies aged 12-24 months will generally be accepted.
Leave your hairy baby with us where they can roam on the range!
