Allison was great with Lyla! Lyla got lots of exercise/walks and Allison was very communicative! I highly recommend leaving your dog with her. From the minute I met her I could tell she loved dogs and was attentive to her during her stay.

Allison is amazing. From analyzing his tendencies during the meet and greet to making sure his first day was low volume so she could focus on him! We would definitely send our dog to Allison’s again! She sent lots of feedback throughout the day and arranged lots of activities for him to stay busy all day.

What Allison would like to know about your dog

I love any breed or size of dog. The types of things I need to know are bits of information such as: is your dog kennel trained? Does your dog have excessive barking issues? Does your dog have separation anxiety? Does your dog get carsick? Does your dog have leash aggression? Does your dog have submissive incontinence? Does your dog jump fences? Does your dog door dart? Does your dog try to dig out? Does your dog have any allergies? Does your dog have any fears? Does your dog protect it's food or toys? Does your dog get along with all other dogs big and small? Does your dog have a prey drive? Is your dog dominant or submissive? Does your dog pull strongly on the leash? Does your dog come when called? Can your dog go to the offleash park? Does your dog know basic commands? Has your dog had any sort of obedience training? These are all important questions to inform any dogsitter of, to ensure the best possible stay for your pup.

When Allison watches your pet

As stated above, we are all about adventure here! My own dogs have climbed Mt Adams three times, Mt St Helens once, gone mountain biking on Mt Hood, skied the glade trail, and hiked many trails in the gorge. Sometimes we have been known to go wild mushroom hunting in the Fall and Spring. We also LOVE going to the beach and to play in the snow at the mountain. We will head to 1000 Acres, or even just ball playing at the park up the street. Pack walks are held between my home and Mt Tabor Park twice a day, and are just as important as adventures. And no worries! If your dog needs to stay on the leash, it still gets to go on adventures (most dogs do need to stay on leash)! Sometimes we go biking with the Walky Dog to get out lots of energy, and other times we go trail running! There is no end to the fun!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I do not allow dogs on the bed or on the sofa, but we have super cushy dogs beds on both floors, and 3 dog crates that we leave open, filled with comfortable beds and fleecy dog blankets, perfect for building a 'den'. If i have a few dogs, I tend to keep them in the living room and i sleep on the futon down there with them. We build a woodstove fire and everyone gets cozy!

Time I'll spend with your dog
When I have dogs boarding here, I tend to work from home the whole day. I might have to head out to do some short errands for an hour or two, but for the most part, either I or my boyfriend are here with the pups 95% of the time. And even better, many days we head out on big adventures, to the Gorge, beach or mountain for the day. When the weather is dismal, we stay closer and head to 1000 Acres, or even just to the fenced park down the street to play mad ball until everyone is super tired. We also do a morning and evening regimented pack walk. I find this is the best way to bond the dogs together and build respect amongst one another. Plus it instills discipline and respect for me a the leader of the pack.
