Melanie sent lots of pictures of Jackson's stay, and he always looked like he was having a great time! He was definitely tired from all of his playing when we picked him up!

When Melanie watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
On my property. lots of land 20 acres and cows/horses to bark at.

*Also dogs need to be pick up the same time that they were previously dropped off. So I can be sure to be avaliable.
Anything after will will result in a ten dollar charge for extra time boarded.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In a crate at night and when I am away, for security and safety reasons for everyone and espcially to keep your kid safe!

You never want to leave someones pet roam free they could digest something toxic, or hurt themselves unattended. They are like children, so they have to be watched. Especially young ones.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Almost all day, and night. They truly have a great experience here, very relaxing and rejuvenating! Lots to do!
