I was very happy with how everything went. Rafael was very accommodating. He also sent pictures and responded promptly when I texted. I feel great about using Rafael's services again.

Rafael took care of Oscar for several days over Christmas and had a great time. Rafael sent several pictures and videos and Oscar seemed very at home playing with Blue. Thanks again, Rafael.

Furbabies are well taken care off

I am CPR First Aid certified, I'm very flexible with time, dogs will have a fenced in yard to run around in or 1 on 1 in the kennel and get some daily excersise, toys, and lots of play time. I'll spend quality time with each and every dog that comes whether in the yard or 1 on 1 in the kennel.
I LOVE what I do! The dogs bring me joy everyday! I own ...

What Rafael would like to know about your dog

I always like to know what daily routine your dog is used to so I can try to maintain their normal schedule as closely as I can. I like to know if there are any situations that make your dog nervous or aggressive so we can avoid those situations. I love all breeds and personalities equally!

Prior to booking your stay I require a meet and greet to make sure that both humans and dogs are a good match! I generally like to meet up at my place so that the dogs can get to see and sniff around the environment in which they will stay.
During your stay I request that you bring the following:
-Any kennel your dog may be used to using (do not feel you have to bring this if your dog does not like to use one)
-Any bed your dog is comfortable with (so he/she has something that smells like home)
-Any favorite toys
-Enough food to last for the whole stay plus a few extra days just in case
-Emergency contacts
-Labeled medications
-A leash to use on our many exciting adventures

All dogs that stay at my house should be UTD on vaccines and flea/tick prevention.
