Patricia is extremely buttoned down and focused on the well being of the dogs she takes care of. You feel that your dog is completely safe and well cared for.

Lake Forest: My Home Board/Daycare

Fellow dog lovers,
I love dogs and am at home 24/7! What could be better than a retired Master's level+ school social worker/therapist caring for one of your furry family members?! Someone who also LOVES dogs and has years of experience.
My home has a large fenced in back yard ideal for your dog/s to play or relax. Multiple pups from the same family are welcome. I board small to medium size ...

What Patricia would like to know about your dog

I would like to know about the owner's dog prior to boarding as it is the only way to be sure I will meet that dog's specific needs in my home. I think it is important to have details of the dog's likes, dislikes, and any "quirky" behaviors to be better prepared to keep him/her content!

When Patricia watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I am out in the large padlocked fenced in yard with my visitors! I love to watch them explore their new environ that is just so dog friendly....running, lounging, sunbathing are all part of our day! Each visitor has his/her individual likes about the outdoors, including the length of time outside for fun! I keep individual files noting all the particulars of my visitors....much like a 5 star hotel!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Wherever your dog most typically sleeps will be similar in my home. I want to keep your dog as close to his/her regular daily patterns as possible.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As I am retired your dog will receive a lot of attention and hang out with me in my home or in the back yard; this will depend on what your dog's preferences are! Some like to play, some like to sleep...
