Loving care/Large fenced yard

At Comet's Haven, your dog will have fun and be well cared for while you are away. I am an experienced pet owner with many years of dog rescue and obedience training experience. I work outside the home, but telework some days, and enjoy staying around the house most of the weekend. I try to schedule most of my dog boarding when I expect to be home for all but a couple of hours each ...

What Mindy would like to know about your dog

I want to know all about the dog's personality and temperament, any health issues, and their experience being left in other boarding situations. I also will want to know the words that are used for the dog's basic commands, and how much exercise they are accustomed to having. I have the most experience with retrievers and other sporting dogs, but recently have come to appreciate small dogs. I am a small person, so have hesitations about huge or very active dogs that pull a lot on lead, as I probably can't hold them.

When Mindy watches your pet

Except in extremely inclement weather, all dogs will have the opportunity for supervised outdoor playtime in our very large fenced yard at least 2-3 times each day, with other dogs, tennis balls, kongs, etc. Dogs also will have a few short potty breaks in a designated area of our backyard or may have one or two short to medium length walks in our neighborhood, which has sidewalks for safety. Weather permitting, dogs visiting on the weekend who enjoy long walks (on lead) and who don't pull too much will go hiking with me in Potomac Overlook Park. All dogs are welcome to watch TV with the family and keep us company when I am on the computer or reading. I especially enjoy senior dogs who like to hang out with me, even if they need some extra assistance.
