I've had animals all my life but I've actually worked/volunteered/fostered all different types of animals for about 17 years.
Looking on DogVacay for a host to watch your dog or cat, who is also a member of your family can be difficult. Especially if you've never left them with anyone but trusted family or friends. Let me assure you that your furry son or daughter will be safe and most of all happy here. We will love them and treat them as one of our own.
We take every precaution to make sure your animal is integrated in the pack properly. If your pet doesn't do well the first day. That's no problem, we will continue to work with them until they are comfortable. I always look for body language to gauge the dogs interactions with each other. I will not take a risk with your pet. If your pet doesn't get along with one dog then we can integrate them with a different one. If your dog prefers to be around no other pets, that's fine too. There are 6 people here ages 13 and up. All of them have been around animals all of their lives and 3 of them have worked in the animal field. We are very well trained and because this is my job, your pet will be supervised at all times because someone is ALWAYS home.
Whether you're looking for a place to keep your pet while you vacation, a place for your pet to play and socialize for the day, a place for your elderly dog (s) or cat (s) to rest and get some loving while being closely monitored, then look no further. That's what I'm here for!
WHAT TO BRING:
Please bring the food you want your dogs to eat. If they want to sleep in a bed with us that's fine. If you prefer them to be crated, that's fine too. Just bring their crate.
We do lots of playtime (weather permitting) and there are always lots of toys brought out for the dogs to play with. As well as a dog pool. I want them to have a great vacation too! If your pet is a senior we will do things at their pace. We also take dogs to the park for walks with owners consent.
DROP OFF/PICK UP:
I am flexible on pick up and drop off times but I do ask that you give me a heads up before you drop off and pick up. That way I can put the other dogs up.

THINGS TO KNOW IF YOU CHOOSE US:
1) I am lenient on vaccinations UNLESS it is for a puppy. All puppies must have at least their first set of vaccinations 2 weeks prior to boarding. This is for the safety of all the guests.
2) ****THEY MUST BE FLEA FREE AND HAVE FLEA PREVENTION ON*** NO EXCEPTIONS.****
3) The dogs here play and during play time they can get dirty. I will wipe/rinse them off if needed. upon your request I can bathe them (for a fee $15) an hour before your scheduled pickup.
4) if your pet is incontinent (I don't mind) you will need to provide doggie diapers, wipes, or pads.
Please message me if you have any questions regarding the above requirements. I understand that some circumstances may be different.
If your dog(s) prefer to be the only dog or only with it's own dog family member I can accommodate that. Please message me to see if we have an opening for those circumstances. :)
