Small Dog Specialist! I have owned dogs all my life (8 total). I have trained dogs, and titled one Papillon in AKC Obedience trials. I also taught basic obedience for 3 years. I am a former member of the Mid-Jersey Companion Dog Training Club in Avenel, NJ. I am a former member of the Delaware Valley Papillon Club.
I have bred champion-bloodline Papillons. My husband has owned 3 dogs.
My husband and I currently live in a lovely ranch home with FENCED BACKYARD with DOGGIE DOOR in the wall, for indoor/outdoor play. I work at home, so I am home all day with your dog! Your small dog will never be lonely. They relax and cuddle with us in front of the TV, and become part of our family.
I take small adult dogs at least 1 year old and fully-housebroken and spayed or neutered. Must be under 30lbs. Must be very well socialized with other dogs and with new people - NO aggression issues and NO destructive chewing issues or food aggression.
I do not use pee-pee pads, as they confuse the majority of dogs who are trained to only potty outside on grass or the ground. Please be sure your dog is familiar with going potty outside only, on grass.
My own small dogs are very friendly and quite used to the "guest" dogs who come to stay with us. Your small dog will be safe in my home with 24/7 supervision, or relaxing in his/her crate (optional, for safety) with soft bedding if no one is home for a short time. I strongly recommend bringing a doggy travel crate to protect your dog if I feel the need to, based on the other guest dog's behaviors. This is only if I am not home for a short time, or overnight.
We have a beautiful, medium sized, fenced-in yard with chain-link fence.
I have no children in my home; just myself and my husband. No other pets.
To date, I have been doing dog boarding for over 6 years and have worked with over 56 families from three websites and many word-of-mouth referrals from neighbors and friends, all who were very satisfied and happy with our services and plan on calling again.
I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the work day, Monday - Friday from 8:00am until 5:30pm.
Please note when booking through this website: Check-Out Pickups after the last night booked are by 9:00am. If you cannot pick up by 9:00am, simply book for an additional "night" on this website, which allows you the entire next day to pick up your pup before 9:00pm. it works similar to a hotel's check in and check out policy.
Drop-offs are from 8:00am until 8:00pm.
Pickups are from 8:00am to 9:00pm.
My husband and I live right off 287, exit 10 - Somerset -, in a lovely, quiet suburb on a beautiful side street.
Meet and Greets are generally available Monday - Friday from 5:30pm till 8:30pm or Saturdays & Sundays from 9:00am till 11:00am.
