Jessica was great. She is friendly, kind, and *super* knowledgeable about dogs. I would gladly use her again.

Large Fenced Yard - Home Full-Time

My home is a great alternative to a traditional boarding facility, where dogs are left alone for many hours and have limited interaction with other dogs and people. I provide day care and overnight boarding services for doggies of all sizes! My home and backyard is a comfortable and safe space for doggies to play and relax, all while in a loving home environment versus a cold facility. Consider my place a home-away-from-home!

What Jessica & Donald would like to know about your dog

I have no breed or size preferences, but I strive to ensure every dog that comes into my home is a great fit for my home environment and current clientele. At each meet and greet (a requirement), I will provide an information sheet so I can get to know your dog better.

I do NOT take dogs who:
- Have severe (destructive behavior) separation anxiety (unless they can safely be crated)
- Have a rough play style
- Dogs who are not comfortable with other dogs; being dog friendly is a must, dog indifferent is fine as well, but must not be nervous or fearful

To get to know you and your pup better I send over a pre-stay questionnaire to be filled out before our meet and greet.

Questions include:
What is your daily routine?
Is your dog house trained?
Is your dog crate trained?
What are their likes and dislikes?
Vaccinations and medications? Veterinarian info?
Emergency contact?

When Jessica & Donald watches your pet

I am not a boarding facility, but a home where your dog will receive love and attention. We spend time playing in the backyard, and relaxing on the couches; here it is all about rest, relaxation, and fun! I do make sure to ensure that all new dogs will be a good fit and fun addition to our home. In order to provide the best care, I ask that owners read my guidelines below to make sure I am the best sitter for you and your pup.

YOUR DOGS WILL BE WITH OTHER DOG GUESTS: I may or may not be accommodating other guests during your dogs stay, so it is important to ensure your dog does not have an aggressive temperament.

NEUTERED/SPAYED PETS: I do not accept non-neutered males or non-spayed females. No exceptions.

DESTRUCTIVE/BARKING/MARKING: I do not accept excessive barkers, hole diggers, chewers, pee-markers (I will allow markers who wear belly-bands), or destructive behavior. If your pet has any of these behaviors my home may not be the best fit for them.

ROUGH PLAY: If your dog has been known to or likes to play rough, my home will not be the best fit for your pup. Also, if your pup is very (very) high energy, my home will not be the best fit.

VACCINATIONS: All vaccinations should be up to date, if there are extenuating circumstances I understand, but please understand the risk of boarding your dog without up to date vaccinations. Flea and Tick prevention is recommended. My home is professionally cleaned to ensure the safety of all my doggy guests, but I recommend preventative medicine, first and foremost. PROOF OF VACCINATIONS ARE REQUIRED.

DROP OFF & PICK UP: Overnight stays are for a 24 hour period, the doggy day care rate will apply to late pickups on the pickup date. *Drop-offs and pick-ups are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. It is important to know when dogs are coming and going to ensure a safe environment and make drop-off and pick-up as seamless as possible. Make sure to message me upon arrival, DO NOT KNOCK OR RING DOORBELL. This causes reactive barking and chaos. Safety is my #1 priority, so prior knowledge is key.

BOARDING RATES: boarding rates consist of a 24 hour period, the last day past 24 hours (0-10 hours) adds a day care charge for that day; over 10 hours adds another night of boarding.
$32 per 24 hours
$28 for additional dog/s
$42 per 24 hours
$38 for additional dog/s

DAY CARE RATES: day care consists of 0-10 hours of care in my home per day. I am not a boarding facility, therefore flexible with pickup and drop-off times.
$25 per day
$20 for additional dog
$35 per day
$30 for additional dog

WALKS/DROP-INS: consist of 30 or 45 minute long visit with your pup. Drop-in visits include a potty trip, refilling water/food, and playtime. You can choose 30 or 45 minute time blocks within a 3 hour window. **Specific time requests cannot be honored as my schedule changes each day.
$18 per 30 minutes
$23 per 45 minutes
+$5 per additional pet
$25 per 30 minutes
$30 per 45 minutes
+$5 per additional pet
