We left our Aussie with Debra over the Thanksgiving holiday and he had such a great time! Debra and her family were wonderful and she gave us plenty of updates and pictures during Tofu's stay with her. Would definitely recommend Debra's services to anyone. She made sure our puppy had plenty of exercise and care!

Debra M.
She was fun to take care of! Always eager to participate in whatever activity was at hand.

Retiree Debra's Farm Bed & Biscuit

Debra is retired, home full time enjoying her farm and would like to spend time providing kind, private and dedicated care to your dog. Debra desires to keep the number of care taking dogs down to no more than 2 which means more private and personalized care for your fur baby. However, if you own more than 2 dogs, Debra is happy to take on more dogs to accommodate your needs. Debra also care takes ...

What Debra would like to know about your dog

GENERAL
Debra limits the number of dogs she boards at a time to two. She books dogs based on their personalities, not strictly on whether she has space or not. Debra desires the best experience for your dog as well as hers, so she's an excellent choice for timid dogs or those who've had bad experiences with other dogs in the past. Special needs dogs may be asked to pay at the puppy rate if their care requires additional time or cleaning.

PET SAFETY
Debra takes great care in keeping your dog safe. She has the ability to separate dogs into their own area should they have issues that can't be corrected by commands and redirection. These segregated areas are used when it's time to eat to ensure everyone eats their own food. Debra also has infection control and sanitation protocols in place.

VACCINATIONS, FLEAS & AGGRESSION SURVEY
Debra would like verification dogs are up to date on basic vaccinations. Please provide a copy of the latest exam and vaccination record.

Vaccination Requirements: Your pet is required to be vaccinated a MINIMUM of 10 DAYS BEFORE his/her arrival for an overnight stay with the following vaccinations:
Required for Overnight Boarding
--Bordetella (kennel cough) required yearly
--Rabies (either 1 or 3-year vaccine accepted)
--Distemper & Parvovirus usually in combo shots such as DHPP or DHLPP (either 1 or 3-year vaccine accepted)

Strongly Recommended but not Required: Canine Flu (both H3N2 and H3N8 vaccines)

Flea Control: All dogs must be treated for fleas before arrival. We treat our yard and check all dogs when they arrive to keep our flea-free status.

EXERCISE
Debra can accommodate any level of exercise from strolling, jogging, 2 hours hiking, ball throwing as well as limited exercise for those dogs with mobility restrictions.

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS
Unless you specify otherwise, your dog will sleep in Debra's living room on dog beds. For pets who require a crate, Debra has two sizes - small and large. Debra only crates at the owner's request. Debra also has empty, clean horse stalls available for farm animal boarding needs.

TREATS & TOYS
Debra stocks dog treats. She also has plenty of toys, dog dishes, and more.

FOOD
Please bring an adequate supply of dog food for their stay. Pets appetite increases at Debra's farm because of all the activities they will be engaged in.

MEDICATIONS
Debra is happy to medicate your dog at no additional charge. Clear instructions and dosage requirements must be provided.

HOUSE SITTING
Debra's rate for house sitting reflects a 12-hour period with start times of your choice ranging anywhere between 5pm and 8pm. Any additional visits outside the 12-hour period will be charged the 'drop-in visits' service rate.

DOG PICK UP AND DROP OFF
Debra is willing to pick up and drop off your pet at no charge within a 5 mile radius of her house. Outside the 5 mile radius, the charge will be $1 per mile. For example, if you live 7 miles away, the charge for pick up would be $2 and drop off would be an additional $2.
