If you have previously boarded your pet with us, and we are marked as "booked", please contact us and let us know your needs. We only accept one "new to us" dog at a time. Previous guests that socialize well are considered VIP guests and are welcome in addition to other guests we may have already booked.
Boarding: Boarding is a 24-hour period (including overnight).
We live in North Raleigh/Wake Forest, near Falls Lake and LOVE dogs. Both of us have had dogs essentially our whole lives. Everyone in our family has dogs. I guess we are just "dog people". We assist with East Coast Tranport Animal Rescue (transporting puppies and dogs from high kill shelters in the south to rescues in northern states where they can find a forever home) and we support MAMMAS rescue.
We are both RN's and are comfortable with physical ailments, if your dog should have special medical needs.
We would love to have your dog join us for weekend stays. Our own pups (Tarfu, Hallie and Makeda) are on a routine that keeps them well excercised and therefore happy. Scheduled meal times, regular play times and frequent walks keep everyone on balance. We live on the Mountain to Sea Trail and frequently use that for our hikes with the dogs. Lots of treats for our guests, and a treat for fur parents to know that their doggies are being well taken care of, played with, and loved on their vacation too. Text pictures and updates as well, because I always look forward to that while I am away from my dogs.
Weekends, we will spend ALL DAY with our guests. Your pet(s) will be sure to come home happy and tired! We have about 2 acres that is fenced to run and play, and an additional fenced area patio/pool house to lounge around in. Aside from focusing on things like tennis balls and chasing games, we care for all guests in a very safe fashion. If the doggies are outside, then so are we. Everyone is fed in a separate location, and we pay attention to needs and behaviors. At night every sleeps on their own bed, in our bedroom. Crates are encouraged but not always necessary.
We are able to board guests Monday - Friday with the understanding that your pup will not have a human with them for approximately (6) six hours each day. But, after that...the fun begins and we love being outside!!!
