Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
I am thrilled to have found Scott, Cheree and Kjell. What a wonderful loving family. They took such good care of my 10 year old pug Captain Oliver. They really listened and followed what Captain needed to be happy and healthy. I know he had a great time. Fantastic communication made my vacation without worries. I highly recommend Scott and his family!
Scott and his family were great! I already booked them for the next time I'm out of town. WiFi loved it so much she would have been content to stay there forever :)
After meeting Scott and his family, we were very comfortable leaving our poodle Wade. During our trip, we knew he would be well cared for. We were so pleased upon our return that Scott was willing to have Wade back for future stays. We have already booked Scott for our next two trips.....
Active Shaker Dad; Works from Home
I'm partially retired and also do some work from home so my schedule is rather flexible. I love to be outside and dog walks are something that fits that love of the outdoors quite well. Our beloved dog passed away last year and we currently do not have our own pet, but I really enjoy time with dogs and helping others care for and love their dogs. We only have 1 dog stay with us ...
What Scott would like to know about your dog
No breed preferences, we like all types of dogs. Before sitting for a dog for the first time I always do a meet & greet so your dog can meet me and I can meet your dog. I'd like to know that they are house trained and can spend the night in their crate. In fact, if you are seeking an overnight stay longer than one night we require that your pooch do a one-night trial run. After having many dogie clients we've learned that some dogs have separation anxiety or miss their home and are just not comfortable in another home. We (and the owners) don't want the dog to be unhappy for a long stay in that situation which is why we do a one-night trial run to be totally sure that your pooch will be comfortable.
We don't allow dogs in our beds at night but we welcome them to sit with us on our furniture when we are relaxing or watching TV/movies. Are they leash trained not to pull excessively while on walks? Does the dog have anything that scares them or causes them stress? How can I help their stay be more peaceful and enjoyable? I'd like to know what food they eat or if they have any special treats they like. We didn't feed our dog human food, but if that is desired, I would want to know that too. Would also want to know if there are certain things the dog likes to play with so I can make sure they have fun during their stay.
