Hi and thank you for looking at my listing! My name is Barbara and I love animals of all kinds and have been a dog owner and dog sitting for over 15 years. In middle school instead of babysitting, I was staring my first dog walking business and have never looked back since.
When your dog stays with me I will treat them like one of my own so that your dogs get lots of personal attention and you can have peace of mind knowing who your dogs are staying with. I am comfortable giving pills or liquid medicine and dogs staying longer than 3 days will get a free bath before pick up. References are available. Dogs coming to stay must be UTD on vaccinations and good with other dogs.
My house is on 2.5 fenced acres for lots of fun outside playtime. Your dog(s) can join mine patrolling for intruders (Squirrels) in the large shady back yard, or for the more active dogs we can play frisbee in the larger front yard. On the FL days that are just too hot for outside activities we have pool time fun! We will also go on daily walks in the beautiful Lake Beresford Park. Pups staying over weekends may also get treated to hikes in the area or trips to the New Smyrna dog beach. I'd be happy to send you as many pictures/videos as you would like of your dog having a better vacation than you ;)
I have a dog friendly cat in the house. She hangs out in my bedroom 99% of the time and I have a baby gate that I like to put up as a precaution the first few times a new dog comes over. If your dog is not cat friendly it is no problem as it is very easy to keep her separated.
I do currently work out of the house 4 days a week. During those days I do go home for lunch play-time and the dogs will have access from the house to the screen room and a small separately fenced yard in case of any bathroom emergencies.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
