No Females in Heat
David runs a doggy heaven - with lots of frisky, energetic pups on hand to keep your pet delighted. You’ll pick up your bestie exhausted and woofing to return.
Jameson (Great Dane) loves staying with David! David has his own dog, Magus, and is always boarding other dogs as well, so it's really like a vacation for my social pup! David was flexible with pickup times when we decided it would be easier for us to pick Jameson up the next morning instead of late at night. We could tell from the pictures (and the fact that Jameson was exhausted upon his return home) ...
Good guy, came through for us in a pinch. Ziggy also came home happy, sleepy and hungry. Always a sign he had lots and lots of fun!

Although I have resided in RI, GA, FL, NJ, NYC and Namibia, I am a Michigander with roots in Ann Arbor since 1961, who is now ensconced 24/7 in development of 6.75 partially wooded acres of beyond organic gardens providing all-natural vegetables and fruits on a zoned agricultural parcel in Northfield Township (North of Ann Arbor, South of Whitmore Lake and East of Dexter) between Joy and Northfield Church Roads.

What David would like to know about your dog
Although Magus has often been referred to as "The Rodney King of Dogs" ("Can't we all just get along!?!"), we do not approve any aggressive, loud behaviors. While "purse dogs" NOT prone to yipping and/or ankle biting are welcomed, more sociable dogs greater than 5 lbs are preferred guests. Older dogs are especially cherished. ANY history of biting of ANY kind must be divulged prior to agreement on terms for a visit. Similarly, indoor marking behaviors simply cannot be allowed.
Whereas enthusiasm is welcomed and encouraged and occasional "unmannerliness" is permitted, constant barking, reckless roughhousing and/or viciousness are intolerable. While avoidance of such disturbances is preferred, inability to curtail noxious interference with other animals is treated appropriately with quiet and safe but SOLITARY confinement with nurturing human support but sequestered AWAY FROM other animals also deserving peace.
A primary intent in opening and sharing this particular property with dogs is to create a welcoming environment supportive of a canine community of animals that not only get along but look forward to being here both individually and collectively. To that end, special consideration in booking any guests is focused upon group dynamics and potential behaviors that could affect significantly any visitor's enjoyment of their time, here. Consequently, proven positive experience from previous accommodations shared with Magus and others here is the factor weighted most heavily in booking decisions.
