Bruno had another terrific stay at Francesca's - he went on many hikes/walks and had lots of fun!!! It is his home away from home.
Francesca S' boarding gets a 5 star rating from Finn. Our 2 year old golden doodle was kept active with several other dogs for the long Thanksgiving weekend and was crying as our car pulled away from Francesca's home yesterday. We were kept updated several times a day with pictures and short notes. It was wonderful to know Finn was in a caring and safe environment!
Our dog enjoys his time at Francesca’s. She provides diligent care and sends frequent photo updates. Francesca curates a compatible bunch consisting of her own dogs and those boarding. There is plenty of well-fenced outdoor space for him to play with other dogs.
Your dog's new favorite place 2 go!
I have 3 children who are grown and living on their own. People know me as an animal owner/lover/communicator since always. I've been an owner/breeder since '96 of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. While I gravitate to larger dogs, I love all breeds -mutts too. I'm who friends and family come to for advice and help with training issues etc, so I'm opening myself up to doing this beyond my circle of friends. I'm available ...
What Francesca would like to know about your dog
As suggested by Rover, I insist upon a meet and greet on neutral turf before you come to my home.
My clients' dogs get along with others and enjoy our car outings. They come when called. Typically we get up around 5:30/6, go outside, are fed soon after, go back outside for "morning business" and a run/play-time out there. At that point we go for our daily outing in hopes of having the places we go to ourselves. When we come home, we have access to the yard, the porch, and the inside downstairs and beds for relax/rest time. They're fed supper around 5:30/6, continue to have access to outside until 9:30/10:30pm when we do a last outside visit making sure everyone has had a last pee before they go into their crates with a treat, or settle onto their beds for the night.
I prefer non-barkers. I discourage barking when it is in play out of respect for my neighbors. (Barking at strangers driving in is not discouraged.) I correct jumping up and begging. I prefer not to take on counter-surfers, and escape artists.
I have an inside and an outside "party basket" which holds a number of chew toys, balls, antlers, etc and are replenished with new frequently. If your dog tends to pull toys apart, please let me know so I can give them the sturdy toys or ones you bring for them.
