PLEASE READ - I am currently accepting previous clients only! My bookings have increased to the point that I'm not able to consistently accommodate existing clients, so I have chosen to forego new guests.
As a dog (and cat) owner, I know how it feels to leave your four-legged family member in a kennel. I always wonder whether my pets are getting good care - not just food, water, and potty breaks, but whether they are getting play time and interaction with people and each other. I was thrilled to find a better way with DogVacay!
I am a lifelong animal lover, and I have dedicated my life to the care of pets as a veterinarian. When your pet stays with me, you can rest assured that he is living the same lifestyle as he would at home. I am able to provide care to pets with special needs, whether that means oral medications, injections, exercise limitations, or even blood glucose monitoring.
Your pet will be staying in a 3 bedroom home with a fenced wooded backyard, lots of toys provided, and ample dog beds around the house for lounging. I have 2 dogs (Shaw and Zuni) and 2 cats (Lavender and Dica). Both dogs are very friendly and love new friends, although Zuni is a little bossy at first! Lavender is a little more shy and prefers to keep to herself. Dica is quite outgoing and loves to meet everyone who comes over. All pets are welcome on the furniture, but if that is not how the rules at your house work then we will follow your wishes to avoid confusion. Although I cannot provide 24 hour supervision at this time, all pets are separated unless supervised to keep them out of trouble. Our typical routine includes twice a day feedings/medications, trips outside at least 4 times a day, and occasional walks around the lake in our neighborhood. If your dog does not get along well with other pets, a "crate and rotate" system will be used to ensure that everyone gets enough attention! If you are interested in other services (pick up/drop off, in-home sitting, walking, etc.) please contact me for availablity and a custom quote. I take plenty of pictures to keep you updated throughout your pet's stay. I can also provide care for other species, so contact me if you have any questions about your furry/feathery/scaly friend.
I know that sometimes a description on the internet is not enough, so I am happy to schedule a meet and greet with you and your pets.
