Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Halley had a great week with Leah and was well-cared-for throughout her stay. Leah contacted me immediately when a question arose and sent pictures of Halley. We'll definitely use Leah again!
Roxy was so peaceful when she got home a lot better than in other boarding situation. Thanks Leah for your thoughtful care.
Finnegan is happy as can be with Leah. He has Joey and family to keep him happy and I am never worried when he is there. Thanks Leah... for your care of Finnny.
Your pet's personal re-treat!
We are a large family of avid dog lovers! There are 6 of us living in a large house and the cottage addition in the backyard, connected by a porch and patio, so there will always be at least one person available to go on walks or have playtime with your pup! I work from home, so I will be available to spend lots of time with your pet during the day! We've owned and ...
What Leah would like to know about your dog
No breed preferences here! We love all dogs just the same!
Please be upfront and honest about whether your dog is not fully house trained. While our dogs never have to wait to go outside for breaks, and we often spend a lot of time outside regardless of the season, we would still like to be made aware of this. Please also be upfront and honest about whether or not your dog has any destructive tendencies, such as chewing on furniture or eating toys, socks, or other clothing articles, just so we are aware of this as well.
Also, if your dog is particularly small (chihuahua, terrier, etc) it is likely that he will be able to fit through the small gaps in our wooden fence (see the photo of the front of our house to see what I'm referencing). While this is not a concern for larger or medium sized dogs, we have had instances of small and toy-sized dogs attempting to escape through the gaps. Though we have never had an issue, if your dog is a toy breed or is very small, I encourage you to look for sitters with fuller fences. Though one of us is always outside with Rover dogs when we let them out, I want to be sure that your pet is always enjoying themselves safely.
Joey is completely up to date on his vaccinations including bordetella, and we require that all Rover dogs that we watch - big or small, be fully up to date on all their shots as well. Please feel free to bring copies of the paperwork for our reference or in the unlikely event of an emergency. We would be happy to provide paperwork on Joey at your request.
We would love to know any pertinent information about your pet's temperament, any information on vet/emergency procedures, any medications, any specific issues that we should be aware of, etc. Essentially, anything you think is relevant or would help your pet enjoy their stay with us safely and comfortably!
