Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Scott and his son took excellent care with Juniper. They went over and beyond what was expected to see that Junioer was comfortable.
Gus had a great time (again) with Scott and his family.
Scott and his family were great with Meyer. Regular updates and a handful of pictures to assure that the furbaby was happy and well kept.
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.
