As always Preston and Mansi were great! They take really good care of our girl and she’s always excited to go to stay there. Caleigh has stayed there many times already and we will continue to have her stay here as long as we can.

Mansi and Preston stepped in to help us by taking care of Emily on Thanksgiving Day. They couldn’t have been nicer or more welcoming to her and to us. And it was great finding a photo in our text messages of our mini poodle resting comfortably at their home. We will definitely book again with Mansi and Preston. Hal & Gigi

Dogwarts Sch. of Lickraft & Wagadry

Welcome to Dogwarts!

THE CARETAKERS
Dogwarts is run by Mansi. She grew up with canine family members, have a lifelong love of pooches of all shapes and sizes. She started boarding dogs in February 2015, simply out of the desire to spend more time with dogs, and to help dog owners find loving care for their pets. Within a few months, we had committed to this full time. And now we only provide house sitting ...

What Mansi & Preston would like to know about your dog

IS YOUR DOG A GOOD FIT FOR DOGWARTS?
We want to make sure you find a great Vacay home for your dog, even if its not with us. We provide a loving environment for a wide variety of dogs, yet some dogs may find a better fit with other wonderful sitters available through Rover.

A good way to think about how much space a dog needs is the dog's size + energy level. Our apartment is quite spacious, and we have hosted large, medium energy dogs that have been quite happy with us. On the other hand, larger high-energy dogs will ultimately feel cramped here, even with extra walks and outside playtime.

On a similar note, dogs who are used to walks as their primary form of exercise are the best fit for us. We don't take the dogs off-leash in unenclosed spaces, for safety reasons. We do take higher energy guests to the dog park once per day for supplemental play time, but walking/running on leash will be the core of their exercise routine here.

Finally, remember that we do host multiple dogs simultaneously. Therefore, we cannot take on guests who are too assertive with other dogs.

FAQS
**Would You Be Able to Book Only Our Dog?**
Unfortunately, our business model does not allow for this, unless you are able to pay about triple the usual rate. Our goal is to be a low-cost provider, but to sustain ourselves at a low price, we have to accept multiple dogs simultaneously.

**Will There Be Any Aggressive Dogs?**
No. We have put a lot of emphasis on understanding and recognizing assertive/aggressive behavior in dogs, and will not take on dogs that show signs of such behavior. This comes with the disclaimer that we do not have formal training on this subject, but we have put significant effort into learning as much as we can about this topic, as it is vital to the safety and well-being of dogs that come to stay with us.

**My Dog Has Special Needs/Is On Medication. Can You Still Take Him?**
We consider this on a case-by-case basis, but the general answer is yes. We are quite comfortable administering medication, or accommodating special needs.

**What Are Your Rules on XYZ?**
We follow your rules first, no questions asked. It is good for the dog to have a consistent set of rules, so we always keep consistent with any rules you have at home. In general, we offer the dogs a great deal of freedom around the apartment, and many sleep with us up on the bed. Our one rule is to never take dogs off-leash in open environments.

**Does My Dog Need to Be Playful?**
Absolutely not! Many dogs love having the opportunity to interact with other dogs, but guests who prefer to have their own space also do just fine with us. No dog is forced into situations that makes them unhappy or uncomfortable.
