No Females in Heat
Yoshi had a good stay!! Thanks for taking excellent care of our girl Laura!
Laura was prompt to respond to all questions and dents lots of pics. My dog was so tired from all the play time she had :) would highly recommend.
Laura was amazing! My dog is big and has anxiety, so that can require special attention. She made him feel welcomed and gave him tons of attention. Laura sent constant updates including how he was doing and picture updates. I would 100% welcome Laura. Fantastic experience for my dog and I.

What Laura would like to know about your dog
REQUIREMENTS for the safety of all :)
No contagious skin or other contagious health issue.
No history of aggression. Is he food aggressive only? That can be dealt with, but I need to know.
Must be fairly socialized.
Owner must know before requesting service that their dog is good (not aggressive) with other playful dogs. I do not take chances with this.
No puppies under 8 months unless you assure me he/she is great in the house... potty trained and not destructive.
Must be housetrained and not a known marker. I totally understand accidents happen! Of course they do when dogs are in a new environment, but im talking about them being housetrained at your home or you can share the dogs routine with me.
Dogs over 15 lbs must be ok with stairs. I have two half flights. One downstairs to the back yard. They are wood with carpet treads. Had a few large older dogs that refused the stairs during meet and greet so we couldn't book
No new rescues or dogs new to the owner, mainly because theres no track record of behavior in this scenario. We can discuss this if you think it wont be a problem.
No known inappropriate chewers... cords, etc.
Please tell me if your dog tries to escape through the door, or fence jumping/digging, although im fanatically careful with all dogs when opening doors.
No dominant unneutered males. No overly dominant dogs in general, especially "alpha" males. My young male Jack Russell doesn't respond well to dominant dogs. Fighting is likely.
Unless older or mellow, my dog doesnt do well with energetic Huskies or male German Shepherds .
No females in heat or that may come in heat while in my care.
Crate trained preferred but not mandatory. We can talk about it if you dont feel its necessary at night.
Owner must understand and agree that fleas can happen, mainly late spring thru first freeze. They can be outside. They can get on your dog. It doesnt mean my house or pets are flea infested. I recommend using Frontline or another vet purchased product. My dogs are on Frontline, but i dont require you use a flea product. Just understand its ¨possible¨ theres a flea around.
That being said, PLEASE deflea your dog before the stay ,if you book, if you know he/she has them. If I find an infestation on the 1st day I will have to deflea the dog for a fee. So far that hasnt happened!
Please dont bring a filthy, smelly dog! It happened once and I would like to avoid that.
And last, Owner must understand BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE that their dog will probably not be the only guest, yet there are times when it might be.. Its a revolving door sometimes... there may be 4 one day and 2 the next and 5 on the weekend. It varies widely. If you ask how many dogs iĺl have, i wont know exactly. But rest assured, I screen the dogs very carefully (as you see by these requirements) before agreeing to board. I ONLY take nice, friendly and healthy dogs, and never more than i can responsibly handle. This is my home that I love and I have my own dogs... no way I would take any chances. :) I have an excellent system that works very smoothly with multiple dogs in my home using multiple rooms/baby gates/ separated yard and indoor time. It all works out!
These requirements are for the health and safety of all involved!
