Ginger and Bob were great! They kept me updated throughout the time my puppy was staying with them and sent me picture updates as well. Great people and have a ton of experience handling dogs.
Ginger did a great job house sitting with my 2 dogs. She took copious notes before hand and I came back to 2 happy dogs.
Bob is such a blessing! We needed a dog sitter at the last moment and Bob was so responsive that he was able to take care of Zeus when needed. I can tell Bob loves dogs. I was a bit hesitant to have anyone besides family take care of my dog but Bob had my mind at ease. He would send photos of my dog and was always responsive via text to let me know ...
We understand your concern with finding the right person to deliver the kind of care that your dog deserves. We value and honor the trust you place in us to make the best decisions regarding your dog's safety, happiness, and well being.
BOARDING IN OUR HOME:
I spent two decades as a certified teacher and social worker, but in August 2012 my husband Bob and I started a family business providing pet care and exercise ...
What Ginger would like to know about your dog
In order to get to know your dog as much as possible and to provide the highest level of care, I developed a 5-page questionnaire that targets various areas including personality, exercise, nutrition, and medical care.
While we don't have breed, gender, or size preferences, we do have several requirements:
Dogs must be current on vaccinations;
Dogs weighing over 20 pounds must be able to climb up and down the stairs by themselves;
We almost always have at least 5 dogs in the house, so if your dog is uncomfortable around other dogs, s/he will not like it here;
All dogs must be clean and free from odor; otherwise, a $20 bathing fee will be assessed.
All dogs must be protected against fleas and ticks
Most parents want to know what their dogs should bring for their vacation. Our guests are encouraged to pack as few things as possible. The basics are
food (we'd be grateful if you would measure your dog's meals in baggies)
treats (no rawhide, please)
Please, no crates, toys, bedding, or beds. We have plenty of everything! Blankets are o.k., but please note they may get torn and/or soiled during dog play.
