Ayu was absolutely wonderful with my dog. I could not have asked for better care for her! I received updates everyday, complete with pictures, telling me how she was doing and what she had been up to. This is the first time I have ever had to board my dog before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was nervous to leave her. But soon after dropping her off, I received an ...

Luka had a great time at Ayu's while we were away in Florida. He always looked very happy and content in all the pictures she sent. She is very good about keeping you updated and sending pictures at least twice a day. Her house is very clean and you can tell she genuinely cares about the dogs. She also puts a lot of thought into the layout of the downstairs and is good about giving ...

Luka had a great day at doggy daycare. He gets along very well with Ayu's dog Angel and all the other dogs that come. Today happened to be a lot of big dogs like him, so he wrestled and played his heart out. He came home and promptly got up on the couch and went to sleep.

What Ayu would like to know about your dog


Your dog has to be up to date with their vaccinations (rabies, bordetella, DHPP). I need to have the records before you drop-off your dog for the stay. You can bring vaccination records to M&G or send it through Rover/email.
I welcome unneutered males and in-heat females. However if your dog is in heat, I can only take her if I don't have other dogs scheduled for boarding yet and the stay will have to be exclusive. There is a $20 extra charge per day for exclusive boarding stay. Please note that I will still have regular daycare clients, I will separate your dog from them and have her stay in the main floor.


I do not have breed or size preferences, I welcome any dog as long as it's a good match with the environment.


Please note that I accept all breed/size of dogs from different families at the same time. Your dog will have to be comfortable with other dogs in general. I will introduce dogs behind baby gate at first and always supervise their interactions to make sure all dogs get along nicely. I will separate and give time-outs if there are any signs of exhaustion or annoyance. If I have to leave house, I only mix dogs that have met several times and get along well. I will check the dogs from time to time using the indoor and backyard cameras.


I will ask questions about your dog during Meet & Greet. I appreciate if you check out the questions or even submit your dog's info prior to that (copy and paste the link):

When Ayu watches your pet


Daycare: Leash and food if they eat lunch
Boarding: Leash | Food | Medication, vitamins, and supplies (if needed) | Dog bed or blanket (to make them feel homey) | Treats (only if your dog has restriction/sensitivity/allergy)

Your dog has to wear collar with updated tags all the time during their stay.


My home office is in the basement, so I can supervise closely when the dogs play there and in the backyard. When I need to give time-outs or leave the house, I will separate the dogs. Depending on the dogs' need, I will use baby gates/playpens/crates/room to do so.
I have indoor camera that covers all area of the doggy playspace as well as backyard camera with limited range.


Angel is very friendly and playful, she loves other dogs more than anything else, she happily welcomes all dogs and shares her toys and humans with them. Your dog will have a companion and get their exercise running around with Angel (and other dogs), as well as playtime with humans (ball fetch/tug of war).

We have plenty of toys (plushies, balls, chews, and Kongs) that your dog can play with. We are also into interactive/puzzle toys, we have 10++ puzzles for your pup to play when the day is slow. There are sandbox and kiddie pool in the backyard for your dog to dig and splash around on hot days. Please notify me if you prefer me to restrict your dog's access to any of the above.


I rarely bring dogs for walks or to dog park when I host multiple dogs. I only go for walks or to dog park if I think the stimulation at home is not enough and I can make sure I am able to handle and supervise all dogs (2-3 max). Walks/park visits are not guaranteed unless specifically requested and there will be an extra charge for that. There is no charge for walks/dog park visits that are initiated by me.


Dogs usually sleep on dog beds and couch in the doggy playspace or in crates in the crate room if you prefer. I have playpen to separate dogs if needed.
If your dog has severe separation anxiety and has to sleep near humans, they are welcome to sleep in our bedroom if they are potty-trained, well-behaved, and able to understand that they are not allowed on human bed. We have 3-strike policy for dogs jumping to our bed. They will need to sleep in the adjoining bathroom with baby gate up (they will still be able to see us) if they keep jumping to the bed.
We will assess on case by case basis if your dog does not have human separation anxiety but you prefer for your dog to sleep in our bedroom.


I can accommodate raw-feeding and basic hygiene routine such as teeth-brushing and deshedding/fur-brushing if your dog allows me to do so. Let me know what your dog needs and I will help if I can.
For stays longer than a week, I offer a free full bath (shampoo, conditioner, blow dry, brush) when needed/requested. I can trim a little hair/fur if needed, but I do not groom or cut nails, better leave those to the professionals :)
