Full time sitter, large fenced yardWarrenton-Harmitage Hills-Pinehurst, Lexington, KY

I pet sit full time so your pet will get lots of personal attention and playtime. I also provide dog walking services and home drop in visits so I may be gone 1-3 hours for weekday midday visits and the other odd appointment outside the home but the majority of my day is set aside to focus on the boarding pups. I work hard on scheduling so I can maximize the amount of play time for everyone each day. I never leave the dogs outside unattended. I'm always supervising their play and making sure that they are all having a great time while keeping them safe.

• MEET AND GREETS

Meet and greets at the boarding home are required before booking a stay. It provides you with an opportunity to see where your pet will be spending their time and to cover any questions that you may have. It provides us the opportunity to meet your pet and introduce them to our own in-house pets. During that time, we will be observing for comfort level and socialization. Meet and greets are scheduled 4-6:30 PM on weekdays.

• VACCINATIONS

Proof of standard vaccinations are required (Rabies, DAPP, and Bordetella) and should be provided at the meet and greet or previously messaged as a document photo.

• DROP OFF & PICK UP APPOINTMENTS

Drop-offs and pick-ups are schedule by appointment within the following windows of time. We do not take appointments outside of these windows so please keep the times in mind when scheduling your booking.

7 am - 9 am Sun-Sat

4 pm - 7 pm Sun-Thu

4 pm - 6 pm Fri-Sat

Although I board over the holidays, I do not schedule pick ups and drop offs Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas. I may also limit hours on other holidays as needed.

• SLEEPING & PLAY: We strive to make every guest feel comfortable and at ease. Your pup will be treated with the loving care that they are used to having and will have free run of the house unless we are not at home. For safety, we either separate them into different rooms or potentially may crate depending on the needs of the dog and whether they are crate trained. Play time and group behavior is closely supervised. If any dog shows signs of aggression, they will be separated for the remainder of their stay and will not be able to return.

• UPDATES: We provide daily photo updates. We will send at least one update a day but it may be multiple updates throughout the day. It just depends a bit on the weather and scheduling for each day. Please feel free to check in anytime throughout the day and we will let you know how your pet is doing. If you are traveling outside the country, we can send photos via email or WhatsApp to help avoid any messaging fees. We generally cut messaging off after 8 PM and respond to any missed messages after 7 AM the next day.

• FURNITURE: Visiting dogs have full access to furniture and beds unless they have restrictions at home. Just advise us during the meet and greet of your preference.

• FOOD: All dogs are separated at mealtime to avoid any food aggression and to ensure that everyone eats only the meal allocated to them. If you bring your own food, please bring only the amount needed for their visit in a sealable, labeled container.

• MEDICATIONS: We will administer any medications as instructed. Please make sure all medications are labeled clearly and written instructions for dosages are included.

• BELONGINGS: You are welcome to bring any belongings that will make your dog feel more at home but nothing is required. We ask that all belongings be clearly marked with the pet’s name so we can be certain that they are returned to you at the end of the stay. We will make every effort to make sure all belongings are returned to you clean and in good condition. Please be aware that toys and beds will be exposed to other dogs and may be damaged, destroyed or lost so please do not bring any valuable or sentimental items. We have plenty of bowls on hand that are sterilized daily so, unless your dog feeds from a slow feeder, there is no need to bring their own bowls.

• BATHS: We do restrict the dogs from playing in the mud on rainy days so they should be coming home relatively clean without a bath. However, we do offer a bathing service if you would prefer to have your pet returning home smelling fresh and sparkling clean. Generally, due to time constraints, we have to schedule baths the evening prior to their pick up but we try to do those closer to pick up time if possible.

o $20 for dogs under 20 lbs

o $25 for dogs over 20 lbs

• LEASHED: All dogs must be leashed upon arrival and pick up.

Large fenced in back yard!Southeastern Hills, Lexington, KY

I love taking care of dogs of all breeds and size! I enjoy walking them, taking mine to the dog park, or letting them play around in the back yard! My kids have been around dogs of all sizes all of their life. They are very loving with them and help take care of our own. I have raised dogs since I was little. I have had sitters as well for my own dogs and I understand the stress that dog owners go through and worry about the care of their own fur-babies. I will help to ease that stress and take good care of your loved ones while you are away. I am a teacher so I am off during the summer and holidays breaks.

Your pup wont even know you're goneGarden Springs, Lexington, KY

I have a passion for dogs. Dogs are family members and I feel like they should be treated that way. Dogs are my passion.

I have had dogs my entire life. I currently, have one dog who is 5 months old. Though I have experience with older dogs that have medical needs. I had an 11-year-old Golden Retriever who had health and mobility issues. I give him oral medications and insulin shots twice a day as well as pick him up frequently to take outside and back inside.

I also have experience with different dog personalities and breeds. I use to be the Social Media intern at a local dog daycare, so I have a lot of experience with many kinds of dogs.

I can't wait to meet your dog!

Loving Care When You're Not ThereSoutheastern Hills, Lexington, KY

Hello there, I am a mom of a two year old son. In our home, we treat our four-legged friends like family. Being accustomed to sitting multiple dogs from different homes, I understand and am mindful of each dog’s individual needs. I currently live in an apartment that has multiple mini dog parks located on the property so getting daily walks and playtime with other furry friends is something your pup can look forward to when coming here. My whole home is open to your fur baby. There’s no room, bed, or couch that would ever be off limits. (Did I mention that we treat animals like family?) Your pup will be loved, cuddled, and spoiled rotten during his or her time here. We look forward to serving you and your fur babies the best way we can!
