Dustin, Edgar and I share a 1300 sq ft "warehouse/loft" style apartment in the Eastlake section of Oakland. As artists, we leave ample amounts of open living space for our dog to run and play. Since we don't have a backyard, we love how helpful our spacious apartment can be for running around and playing inside. However, we always make sure to get outside and explore the neighborhood, we just have to do it on a leash!
Any dog that stays with us will be GUARANTEED to go home exhausted. Our bugg (Boston/pug mix) has no idea when he's tired and will play ALL DAY. He's like that wild energetic kid in the neighborhood that your parents sent you to play with to tire you out. And dogs love him for it!
We are looking for dogs that are house trained, and we do have a crate if you prefer to have your pup use it at any point. Cat friendly dogs are preferred, however, our cat knows how to hide when he needs to!
We look forward to hearing from you!
Dustin and I are fine artists. I am a yarnbomber and Dustin is currently a painter. I am originally from Philadelphia, PA and Charleston, WV.
We do not have any breed preferences, but we would prefer to have a dog who enjoys being around other dogs. We also prefer for a dog to be house trained. Energetic is totally fine and welcomed but aggressiveness will be tough for us since we have another dog in the home.
I can spend as much time as YOU would like me to spend with your dog. I create my own schedule and feel very willing to accommodate.
Your dog can sleep in a crate or open in the house, whichever you prefer
I can walk your dog all the way down to the lake (Lake Merritt) and around it, and we can even jog if you'd like.
