Daisy loved her week long stay at David's house. We will bring her again, although we only travel once or twice per year. Daisy usually stays at my sister's house when needed, but due to Lorraine's not feeling well last week , Daisy had a wonderful time at David's house instead. He sent photos of Daisy, and she sure looked relaxed and happy.

When I picked up my two dogs from David's place after a 6 day stay, they slept for 12 hours straight. They were dirty, covered in other dog's slobber, and clearly very happy. It is a great relief knowing that someone like David exists to watch our dogs when we can't take them with us, he lets dogs act like dogs. I felt that my dogs were safe in David's hands, it was clear from ...

Nature's OmniUnum Farm.

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.
