Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Elena is the absolute best sitter I could imagine. She sends photos of your happy pup in her secure back yard, and she’s great with communication and flexible. Our little isolation anxiety pup is always happy to see her, and has the best time with other dogs. We will be back again and again.
Two thumbs up!
Elena and Jan are so wonderful. When our flight got cancelled they responded quickly and were able to keep our pup for another day. We know he's loved and we'll cared for with them!
Loving, gentle, experienced...
I love dogs! I have always lived with at least one plus cats, birds, reptiles, fish and other small creatures. I have also worked with a variety of rescues, helping walk and train dogs as well as fostering in my own home.
I live in a large, two-story house in a quiet neighborhood. I have a dog door and a large, fully fenced yard. Your dog will have a great time hanging out and playing ...
What Elena would like to know about your dog
I'd just like to know the basic things. Are they up to date on shots and fixed? Are they on any medication? Do they have any health problems (including worms, ticks or fleas)? Is there any special needs? Has the pup had any training etc... Anything you'd like to tell me would be great too.
For stays inside my home:
Males over 6 months MUST be neutered/females over 9 months MUST be spayed. I cannot accept any dogs in heat. If a female comes into heat during a stay there will be an additional fee of $10 per day.
To keep the house as peaceful as possible we can't accept any dogs that are dog/people aggressive (food aggressive dogs are fine. They can be fed alone), excessive barkers, fence jumpers, runners (bolting for/out the door), diggers, or that are high energy.
Max weight I normally accept is 45lbs. and/or 20" at the withers/shoulders. On the rare occasion we do take a dog in larger than 45lbs. and/or 20" withers, there will be a fee increase. Please ask for fees.
There is a slight fee increase for:
• Special needs dogs
• Larger than 45lbs. and/or 20" withers/shoulders.
• Daily dog day care also available for a reduced fee. No age limit.
***Sorry, but I can't take in Chows, German Shepherds, Akitas, Siberian Huskies or Shiba -Inus.
