Dog is God spelled backwards!
And I've had a spiritual connection with animals in general, since childhood. Because my mother was a bred, we raised and showed basset hounds.
My dog boarding/whispering business started in Chicago and moved here to the country into a ranch style home two years ago. What's great about my location, is that I'm five to fifteen minutes from 94 if you're on your way to Chicago or Michigan.
Pet accommodations include much of the house. Dogs can sleep on dog beds, crates, couches and my TempurPedic bed, if they are small enough.
My oldest client is 17! I do care for quite a few senior dogs who are blind, deaf physically challenged and need medication. Dogs don't have to go up and down stairs if they have arthritis or knee issues. We're handicap accessible!
In summer, the dogs lounge on the back deck or in the pen, where they can nap in the sun and watch hummingbirds. We can take long walks where there's very little traffic and 15 minutes away is the beach. In winter, two fire places keep us cozy after brisk walks in the snow. Many of my clients live in Chicago so I often drive into the city which is 60 minutes away to pick up and drop off. I do offer that service for a small fee.
