Jim is very well prepared to receive large dogs into his home. The yard is well protected with a privacy fence and the dogs have plenty of room to explore, romp, and play. There is shade here as well. Jim's dog Jasper is also a gracious host, and I am happy to have a dog buddy for Jacques. Dogs are welcome in the house and are accommodated with area rugs to prevent slips and skids ...

Jim was great. He has a way of getting the dogs to form a pack and play and run together. Kodak was tired and happy when we picked him up. Jim let him sleep wherever he wanted - under the desk, on the cat bed. He sent us regular updates and photos. It was a great experience for us and for our dog. We will use his services again.

Almost A Dog Park!

West University Doggie Boarding & Daycare is more than just dog sitting or boarding, we are our own private mini-dog park! Plenty of room for active doggies to run and chase and stretch their legs! Located on a city lot only 60' wide by 180' deep, our guest dogs scamper from one corner of the front yard to the far back corner of the back lot, log a lot of miles running and chasing and ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

Need to know dog's disposition, and whether it will get along with my very accommodating host dog. Doggies who are escape-prone do not work well here, a number of past guests have been determined to wiggle through my white picket fence out front. A meet and greet prior to booking is very important.

When Jim watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We don't even have to leave our fully fenced property for doggies to get lots of exercise ! The front yard is connected by an 85' long internal driveway to a separate lot out back which has become it's own dog park. Doggies learn the route, where they can open it up and zoom from front to back. Active doggies who like to run and chase usually go home very tired.
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Many choices. Have multiple dog beds, comfy (covered) chairs, cool ceramic tile floor. Very comfortable environment for doggies Guest dogs find their most comfortable place and tend to hang out there.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home, generally with dogs 24/7 unless I have to dash to grocer for more dog food !
