Sendak clearly had a good time. April and Michael were warm and friendly. The property where they walk the dogs is gorgeous and perfect for romping. Their home is dog friendly and very clean. We will be back!

Our sweet goldendoodle, Ollie, absolutely loved her stay with April and David. We came from Portland, OR to the Port Townsend Ukulele Festival at Fort Worden State Park and stayed in the campground. We were able to walk Ollie from the campground to their house near the beach on a great trail. Ollie was very lucky to have found such caring hosts as April and David. They sent photos of walks and canine fun which ...

Beach, woods, great yard!

Our home has a wonderful yard with shade and sun and lies across the pond from a state park with beach and woods trails. We usually take at least 2 walks a day. Many dog lovers visit our beach park so there will be other dogs to socialize with, too. If your dog is able to stay near by, there can be off leash running on the beach. Your dog will also of course have ...

What April would like to know about your dog

We rely on the "meet and greet" to get to know your dog. If that isn't possible, we need to know from you:
Does your dog get along with dogs of all breeds and sizes?
Is your dog truly house trained (no marking behavior?
Is your dog leash trained?
Is your dog okay with a 3 foot fence?
We love all dogs but this is our home and so all these things are important to us.

When April watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We are next to a State park and a county park that are both on the beach. These parks are leashed areas, with many miles of trails, both paved and natural. There is beach that is outside the county and state park area that is an off leash area to play. There is also a good network of neighborhood woods trails to walk if we need protection from wind.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Inside on one of our many pet beds, or you can bring your own bed. (although most dogs tend to do a comical mix and match bed game that is a mystery to all but them!) We are not comfortable with dogs that require sleeping in kennels and find that even dogs who are used to kennels at home adjust quickly to our open plan. We prefer independent dogs that can relax in their own bed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Most of the day. One of us is retired and the other works part time, so we have a lot of one on one time with our furry friends.
