We can't wait to take care of your dog! We are an active couple with flexible schedules and one of us will be around most of the time to keep your dog company. We have a great front and back yard, love to go for walks in our rural neighborhood, and love to go for hikes in nearby Harriman State Park. We have two kids, a 3 year old girl and a 5 year old boy, who love dogs. They know how to be gentle when that's necessary, and they know how to keep active dogs busy.
We accept one dog at a time, unless you have two pets in your family, so your pet(s) will have individual care.
About us: Michaela is a chef that runs her own business and often works from home, and Jane is a farmer who farms down the road from the house. We moved to the area from Manhattan in May 2015 to start our farm. We recently lost our 15 year old sweet Wheaten Terrier, and we have lots of dog love to share. If your dog is older and needs special attention, we have so much patience and can go the extra mile. If your dog is younger and needs lots of exercise, we will go on lots of walks and spend time playing. We walk dogs at two local animal shelters, and we have experience working with dogs with all kinds of personalities. Jane grew up with a Shitzu and Michaela grew up with Irish Wolfhounds, so we love all different sizes of dogs!
About our home: We live in a two story duplex with a front and back yard. We are happy to have your dog sleep in our room if that is what they're used to. There are lots of dogs in the neighborhood if your dog likes social time. If your dog is well trained and likes spending time outside, they can join Jane at the farm.
24/7 supervision may be available if necessary. Talk to us ahead of time and we can let you know if that's an option. But any dog that stays with us will have, at the bare minimum, lots of attention and love.
We can negotiate on price for longer visits and for visits in the winter (when we're not so busy with the farm!), so talk to us if you need it.
