FENCED yard! Home FULL TIME!
I am a FULL TIME homemaker who loves animals. During our 33 years of marriage and raising a family, we have had various types of pets. We presently have a small dog. She is my empty nest baby and I absolutely adore her! She is very friendly and loves to socialize with other dogs. In-home pet care gives her the opportunity to make many friends, while fulfilling my needs as a caretaker.
Our children are now grown and off on their own. I have plenty of time and lots of love to give. Your pup will be part of our family during his/her stay with us.
One of the many things that I considered before bringing my new puppy home was, what would I do with her if I needed to go out of town. Leaving my new fur baby at a kennel just did not appeal to me. First of all, they are noisy, which can be overwhelming for any dog while in unfamiliar surroundings. Secondly, your pup is restricted to a kennel for most of the day and night.
As a full time homemaker and animal lover, I realized that overnight boarding and in home pet care was a service that I could offer to my neighbors.
Since, our resident dog is very small (8 1/2 lbs.), and our home is not large, I prefer to board small to medium size dogs under 20 lbs.
MY REQUIREMENTS ARE:
*Your dog must be dog friendly.
*Must be up to date with all vaccinations and heart worm/flea treatment.
*Proof of vaccinations MUST be provided.
*Must provide emergency contact phone number and your dog's Veterinarian information (phone number and location).
*All dogs must be neutered/spayed with the exception of puppies under 6 months of age.
I maintain a clean and safe environment both indoors and out. Maintaining the health and safety of your dog and mine is my first priority. I have had Pet CPR and first aid training as well. I have pet steps for the little ones to get up and down from the couch. No need to bring food bowls, I have many sizes with mats. I also have extra blankets and sweaters for the cold months.
Our yard is now completely fenced in. Our Yorkie is very small and must always be supervised when we are in the yard. She loves to be outdoors, as do I, but I am also mindful of the heat during the summer months, and we will go outside in short intervals throughout the day. I live in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees. There are parks and trails with a dog watering station. It is a great neighborhood for daily walks. Again, I am mindful of the summer heat, and if I walk the dogs during the summer it will only be during coolest hours of the morning or evening.
Sorry, but I do not offer overnight sitting in your home. However, I am available for scheduled in home visits tailored to your pets needs for feeding, playing, outdoor potty breaks, and/or walking. I have cared for dogs, cats, and birds small to large. I also offer mail pick up, plant watering, and alternating lights on/off while you are away. I have lived in Crosby for 24 years.
