No Females in Heat
You could tell David cares a lot of dogs, especially his own. I appreciated that he asked for Stella to come over a couple weeks before the weekend we were needing services so she could do a “meet and greet” with his dogs. Stella was with 5 other dogs during her meet and greet and just 2 other dogs during her stay. Also, 2 days before left for our trip, Stella developed a belly rash ...
Musubi had a wonderful time running around on David's beautiful property, and David treated Musubi like his own. He even let Musubi sleep with him on his bed and cleaned out Musubi's ears. Will definitely book again.
David was exactly what we were looking for and needed for our dog! We got denied by most other dog sitters on Rover because he is a pit bull and David did not discriminate whatsoever. So happy and relieved to find a sitter like him! Definitely going to be a returning customer!
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.
