I can always rely on Brit to respond. Sometimes I get pulled away last minute and Brit has always accommodated me. She's the best!
Brit magically gets Harley to play with toys. When we're at home she won't even look at them. I don't know how she does it!
Brit takes Harley for walks while she is watching her so she can have some explorer time. I'm glad she doesn't stay in the house all the time. Love it!
I've always had a soft spot for rescue dogs, and my work in the petcare field came out of necessity when we adopted Aspen, our Siberian Husky mix, a few years ago. True to his breed's reputation, Aspen came to us as an escape artist with additional issues and severe separation anxiety. We went through several different methods of trying to safely confine him while we had to be at work until I began to ...
What Brit would like to know about your dog
Our most frequent clients are other huskies, but that is less about favoritism and more because huskies tend to have a certain style of play and communication and do great among similar-minded dogs. They are very expressive, interactive, and laidback dogs who respect each other's space, but can also have be vocal, mouthy, and energetic during playtime. In my experience, other Northern breeds, herding breeds, pit bulls, and most small dogs tend to do exceptionally well in my home. Guests cannot have any aggression issues for everyone's safety, and must be up to date on vaccinations.
We love big breeds, but sadly, due to space limitations, my in-home boarding and daycare is currently better suited to smaller or medium sized dogs of any energy level. We have the resources to keep puppies or playful dogs occupied as well as allow seniors or shy personalities to have the peace and quiet they need to be comfortable. I will make exceptions for "big dogs" if I feel like we will be the right fit for them, so don't be afraid to ask.
On the other hand, we can be a great environments for puppies or small dogs who don't have a lot of social skills or aren't used to big dogs - our own dogs are very respectful and patient. But dogs who are outright aggressive or terribly fearful of other dogs due to past trauma or bad experiences will need more work than I can safely give them in a daycare or in-home boarding setting.
Our current "pack" of regular dogs include my two adult dogs (who you can read more about below) and a couple of very well-mannered puppies who have been coming here since they were very young. What's most important to me, more than any one "personality type," is that I can get to know your dog well, help my dogs adapt to them, and help yours adapt to our routine a little bit, too. Anything you can tell me about your dog's quirks, likes, restrictions, or fears, will help me make them feel that much more comfortable while in my care.
I try to keep my home as clean and hygienic for clients as possible, so I do ask your dog's coat is fairly clean (and recently brushed, for longhaired dogs) if they will be visiting. Feel free to send them along with their brush so I can keep up with their hair care and help keep them healthy and tangle-free! I can provide baths, nail trims, and other small grooming tasks by request.
