Your dog will stay on a 107-acre farm and forest land which also operates as a non-profit rescue.
We only take care of one dog at a time so your dog will have the time of their life meeting our rescued farm animals, socializing with our dogs and sleeping on the couch.
My spouse and I are former foster volunteers with the Monadnock Humane Society and I am a Pet First Aid Instructor with the American Red Cross.
Becuase of our special setting and individual service, we require a Meet-n-Greet before accepting a reservation. You must also have a 100% complete profile on DogVacay including photos of you and your dog, medical information and description.
We have three female dogs: a Jack Russell, a Black Lab and a Terrier-mix (rescued).
In addition to dogs, we have a potbellied pig, two Sicilian donkeys, five sheep, eight angora rabbits and six alpacas. We also have chickens, guinea fowl, and peacocks!
A Note About Drop Off and Pick Up Times:
Overnight boarding works just like a hotel stay for people. Check-in for overnight boarding is typically after 1:00 pm and pick up is typically by noon. But we certainly can accommodate early drop offs as well as later pick-ups (subject to additional fees)! Just let us know what your needs are! Overnight boarding is for a 23-hour block and we can adjust drop off and pick up times within that framework.
Please bring EVERYTHING your dog is used to, including food bowls, blankets, leash, crate, toys and treats. (We have had people show up with nothing but a sack of food which is a sad way to start a DogVacay).
A Note About Puppies:
All dogs must be housebroken. If your dog or puppy is not housebroken, there is an additional $10 per day training fee to provide this service. We also ask that you bring all the tools to housebreak your pooch, including, a crate and puppy training pads,
A Note About Third-Party sitters:
Sometimes people choose DogVacay as a supplement to a friend, family member or acquaintance who is dog sitting. (For example, you go away for a week and have a friend dog-sit and they can only do it for two days at the start and two days at the end of the week. So you call us and want a three-day DogVacay. Dealing with a third party in circumstances such as this never works out. There is often times confusion, delays, and inconsistencies which are unsafe and problematic at best. We only accept your dog from you and only return your dog to you,
Other Special Accommodations:
Depending on the issue, we may require an additional fee.
