Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Jan took good care of our special needs dog while we were away. She was flexible with scheduling and worked with our dog's separation anxiety. Much appreciated!
Fancy did great at Jan's house. We appreciate Jan's communication, attention to detail and heartfelt care of our dog. Fancy is looking forward to staying with Jan again.
Jan and Elena are wonderful dog sitters. Lulu is usually not a fan of being away from her home and family, but has really bonded with Jan and Elena. It makes leaving town so much easier knowing that Lulu has a second home at Jan and Elena's.
I'll love your dog as much you do.
Hi, I'm Jan. I just love being around dogs! I have 10 years experience working for an Animal Emergency Clinic and specialty vet, sterilizing surgical instruments and some tech duties (see testimonial from Dr. Daniel G.) I also sat several pets that belonged to the vets, including the clinic owner's animals.
I am very comfortable giving shots, medications, or changing bandages if needed. I also worked the puppy section in an animal shelter for about ...
What Jan would like to know about your dog
I'd just like to know the basic things. Are they up to date on shots? Is the dog an inside or outside dog? Are they on any medication? Do they have any health problems (including worms, ticks or fleas)? Is there any special needs? Is the dog fixed? Has the pup had any training etc... Anything you'd like to tell me would be great too.
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 the stay, an additional fee of $10 per day will be added.
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.
