We are Certified Pet Sitters! Licensed and bonded. We are first aid and CPR trained. That means we have taken a course and gone through extensive testing! We can go 'Mouth to Snout' if necessary! We have over 14 years of caring for other people's animals. And ALL types of animals too!
Our repeat parents tell us that as soon as they turn the corner, their 'furbabies' become animated. They eagerly jump out of the car and exhibit no anxiety when Mom/Dad leave. Large back yard with pool that we encourage those who like to swim, to do so. We are out there with them-they are never by themselves. We have a bit under 1/4 acre that is well maintained and dog friendly. WE do not kennel unless you request it. They have the run of the back yard and the first floor-always supervised.
Walking path in the neighborhood that we utilize for daily AM & PM walks and ball playing. On average-we do a mile, based on the dogs ability, two times a day, per dog. We have scheduled play time. All the activity insures that the guests feel happy and safe.
We make our own wet dog food and with permission, gladly share with our guests!
WE ONLY TAKE DOGS THAT HAVE BEEN 'FIXED'. We do take puppies-with a special charge, and we love large dogs!
WE HAVE A HOLIDAY FEE, CHRISTMAS EVE, DAY, NEW YEARS EVE AND DAY THANKSGIVING ETC, ask before you book so you are not surprised. And we charge by the day, not the night. The exception is if you pick up your pet before 9AM on the last day of the scheduled sit. For example, If you leave 1-1-16 and return 1-7-16 we consider that 7 days UNLESS on the 7th, you pick your 'babies' up before 9am on the 7th.
We ONLY consider last minute reservations under these conditions, (1) you must come for a meet-n-greet and, (2)you must bring your buddy for an hour sit-no charge.
We have a gal that works with us to do our home visits, like care of cats and other pets-in your home. She is also background checked and bonded.
Talk to us about a custom quote if you have the need for this special service. As a rule it is $20 per visit, not per day.
Our philosophy is, "We attempt to replicate what your individual dog is used to in their own home. So, if your little one sleeps with you-they will sleep with us."
So, while you are on vacation-so is your pet! If we were dogs-we would want to be at WAGGSNPURRS!
