I'm Fay, I only take two dogs for boarding at the same time, unless the extra dogs are from the same family. That way I can give your dog full love, and the best care and attention.
Like you, I'm a dog lover. 17 years ago, my husband and I adopted an older dog named Ding-Ding from Dachshund Rescue. Because he was an abused dog, he had a lots of issues: insecurity, food aggression, biting, he didn't know how to walk on the leash and was scared going outside. After several months of patient training and loving care, he became a sweet and affectionate dog, until he passed away 9 years ago.
I understand completely that when you are away, you need to trust an experienced host and know that your dog is in good hands. I was trained at Animal Care and Control of NYC, and I'm here for you.
I provide 24 hour care and daycare* in my home. I am also do house calls and visits service. I live in a townhouse in Forest Hills, Queens (near Lillian’s Pizza and two blocks from Forest Hills Gardens) with my husband (who works at home as well) and a 10 year old dachshund, Chichi, with lots of trees, flowers and green grass. Forest Hills is like heaven for dogs, and it's the ideal place for your dog to have a real vacation. I provide a cozy, big space and clean environment for your dog to walk and play freely just like your home. My small backyard is perfect for dogs. In the summer, I have a small swimming pool.
I focus on small and medium-sized dogs, either puppies or senior dog. I know they need more love and attention. I only take dogs that are well behaved, good on the leash and that have no aggression with other dogs. I will treat your dog the same as mine, and accompany them every minute. At night, I will always sleep on a mattress near your dog to comfort them. Your dog is free to sleep either on the comfortable sofas or share the full size mattress with me. Clean pillows and blankets are provided.
Why Wolfgang's? Because I'm a musician and will entertain your dog with music. Music therapy reduces stress and separation anxiety and is a great way to help your dog calm down and relax. Dog massage is also available.
Your dog will be taken for walks several times during the day. I provide lots of toys and play time (the toys will be cleaned each time for the new guests). I will keep your dog's feet clean, and brush their teeth and fur. I will pay attention to the needs of each individual breed.
For new dogs, I require a Meet-n-Greet before accepting bookings. Your dog's basic info should be provided: age, feeding times with snacks and amounts, spayed or neutered, dogs with anxiety or special need, medication, likes and dislikes. Your dog should be flea and tick controlled.
In case of emergencies, I am fully insured and live just minutes from 24-hour emergency care at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Forest Hills.
I have a car, and if pick up or drop off is requested I can work around your schedule and will try to be as accommodating as possible.
My dog Chichi is old and had back surgery. She doesn't like to be bothered and play with other dogs who are bigger than her. As long as your dog is not so aggressive, she is fine. Otherwise, she can stay with my husband on the second floor.
I will provide a better rate if you board your dog for more than one week or you have more than one dogs.
I hope to see you soon. You are welcome to come to check out my place before you book.
*Holiday rate will be $10 more per day.
*Additional charges for daycare more than 9 hours.
