Posh Hound Palace: Boarding & Walks
YOUR DOG MUST BE CURRENT ON VACCINES BEFORE HIS/HER STAY WITH US. A PRIOR MEET AND GREET IS REQUIRED BEFORE THEIR FIRST STAY WITH US CAN BE BOOKED. Please send a photocopy of your dog's most recent vaccination record along with your initial reservation request. I currently specialize in boarding sighthounds and senior dogs; training packages for younger dogs and other breeds are available.

What Amanda would like to know about your dog
For safety of all, I need to know when your dog was last vaccinated, as well as dates of most recent administration of deworming, flea & tick prevention & treatment of any contagious parasites or diseases including but not limited to intestinal parasites, mites, mange, canine influenza, etc. Please do NOT book a stay for or bring me a dog who has a contagious infection.
I am comfortable working with dogs with behavioral issues as long as my dogs are not put at risk. I am confident & experienced with bully breeds, Shepherds, Mastiffs, Danes & the like. I am a calm, assertive, clear & direct pack leader.
Our preferred guests are seniors, sighthounds & shepherds. Rescues are my favorite!
As mentioned, we need to meet & greet at our home at least one day prior to the first day of your dog's stay to ensure that proper introductions are complete, which will include a brief neighborhood walk on-leash, observation & discussion of any behavioral concerns, your pet's routine, etc. Please, no puppies or extra-barky dogs: I work from home & need to be on the phone at times in my home office. No indiscriminate chewers due to antique furnishings.
If your dog tends to "mark territory" please provide him with a belly band/diaper during his stay with us. Leash-pullers will need to wear some sort of pull-reducing devices, typically a halti-collar, gentle-leader, prong collar, or easy-walk harness, depending on the most appropriate solution for your dog's needs. If your dog is crated at home, please bring his/her crate--I do not provide these items, & have found over the years that it is most helpful for a dog visiting a new environment (especially for the first time) to be familiar with his/her belongings/surroundings; separation anxiety is often exacerbated with new scents, unfamiliar things.
Please ensure that your dog's profile is complete with information regarding his or her vaccination record, any health/medical conditions, any medication with dosage instructions, feeding instructions, veterinary clinic contact info, favorite toys/bones, behavioral issues to monitor, etc.
