Pet care experience

. No puppies under 6 months. Only small breeds. No large breeds. ***All dogs must be spayed/neutered.*** I've been caring for pets all my life, and have always had dogs and cats, they are the joy of my life!. As an adult I've always lived in a multiple pets household, the more the merrier! I'm here 365 days a year 7: AM to 9: PM for Daycare , Overnight Boarding is for 24 hours per overnight, If you accidently book Daycare instead of Boarding then cancel it and book Boarding. Also, overnight boarding starts when your pet is not picked up after daycare by 9:30 PM and you will be billed and must accept the Modification. Best times for Meet n Greets is usually noon. M&G optional. Fully fenced yard. This is a Safe Zone for 'Littles'. Small-Medium dogs (up to 25#) must be calm and good with small dogs. Some Special Needs. No puppies under 6 months, only small breeds. No large breed puppies or dogs. No Runners:('Houdin's'; escape artists). All dogs must be healthy, and spayed/neutered. No sickies no incontinent no diarrhea prone dogs. Excessive territorial-marking male dogs bring belly band kit just in case we need it, please. I'm not Free Feeding any more due to 2 of my pets have become overweight, so your pet won't have access to food unless you bring it or ok it. Your pets are fed their own food and treats you bring, Stress is a cause in tummy upsets, tell me if your dog is prone to stress, or if this is 1st stay. The Property: The front gate is the 'weakest link' I Trust you to latch and bungee the gate coming and going: that way no dogs can escape and I can look from front door and see the gate is latched. Thanks! In my home daycare boarding grooming, I'm here all the time. Open 7am to 9pm. Grooming appointments 9-9:30am dropoff preferred. Grooming small dogs to 20# and all Doodles. Pickup about 1.5 hrs after, or daycare xtra. Comfy home environment, doors open to fenced yard. Air-conditioned, heated, what I'm comfortable in, they are too. They follow me and like to hang out with me. I try to get out for Walkies and have walked as many as 6 at once for a mile.sometimes I take 2 groups sepperately. Bring harness and 6' long leash, and any chew toy.

I couldn't have been happier with Stephanie, she sent me pictures of my little guy and videos. My dog was returned to me after a 3 week stay happy and healthy. I will be sure to go back to Stephanie the next time I need to leave town.

We appreciated Stephanie very much. She obviously loves dogs - and Daisy immediately seemed comfortable as we met. Stephanie also took care of us giving information about the breed, Maltese, and grooming tips which we appreciated.During our time away from Daisy we knew she was being well cared for and appreciated for who she, Daisy, is. Absolutely will want to leave her with Stephanie again when we visit Portland.

Information Stephanie S. would like to know about your pet

Please put a label with your pets name(s) on all belongings with tape/sharpie, and have identifying name tag and dog licence on collar your pet will wear all the time. This is a small Safe Zone for little dogs to relax and feel at home. No 'Intact' dogs, No puppies under 6 months. Only small breeds. No large breeds. ***All dogs must be spayed/neutered.*** No Bully Breeds, or large breed dogs, or large breed puppies, pure or mixed,,I get alot if gaff over this, but it is my allowed preference, the decision formed over much research, news reports, and my own and others real experiences. Please don't be offended, there are many many other sitters happy to oblige you. -Please bring your pets on leash or hand carry. -I prefer my client doggies to be neutered, up to date on shots, currently healthy. -I will need to know of any known allergies. -Tell me of any special needs. Your dogs should be able to go up and down stairs, but if not, is ok if I can carry, no more than 35-40# please. - And sorry, no breeders, no pregnant dogs, or studs, per my own philosophy of we all need to do what we can to stop dog overpopulation- 4 million unwanted pets are euthanized every year,,horrible! Please, join the bandwagon to adopt strays, shelter animals, and don't buy into Guardian programs, don't buy from backyard breeders, and be sure to thoughly check a place out before you buy puppies, remember that so many people and their homes are paid to be just Fronts for puppy-mills. All shelter dogs will bond nicely with you, just give them a chance, and your time, hire a trainer if you need. Do your research on the breed(s) before you adopt, to know expected behaviors.Never buy a dog you can't physically restrain or hang on to if the want to run. A Note To Boarders: please be sure to ask your responsible friends and family if they can watch your dog(s) before requesting booking on Rover and avoid cancelling, to save both our time. As homestyle and layed back as Steffies House may seem, I take all precautions for the safety and well-being of your pet(s) and am trusted by many many repeat clients, this is my own home and own business, and my full time profession, yes I charge money and it may seem alot for Overnight boarding, but I'm really priced in the average zone, and of great Value. Remember, though loved, your friends and family usually do not have the experience and expertise, or patience or full time, to care for your pet properly while you're away. Bringing to me means no one is going in and out of your place with a potential for dog escapes, or unknown unwanted visitors into your own home, as in the case of sitters. I'm insured, I have a car for emergency transports, and,,dogs love me! It may be your/your dog's 1st time boarding, and you both may have sepperation anxiety, but all dogs, and pet parents, settle down within an hour or so, then pup becomes part of 'the pack, and yes, I offer lots and lots lap time, cuddles, and kisses for my charges, it's a chance to socialize, and make new friends. All my repeat clients tell me their doggies start to get excited to see us and bark in the car when they get near! They're always happy to return!

A typical day

A laundry basket full of assorted toys, they get laundered often. Chuck it, fetch tennis balls, tug o war, Frisby. Some like to hang out in the play area where I Groom, they help me Meet and Greet, help do chores, like to keep me company in the kitchen.W don't get out because there are my 5 plus usually another few pups that makes it too hard for me to walk them all. So, we just hang out and they run around here, sometimes lickily split back and forth inside or outside, playing chase, getting their Ya Ya's out. I don't get going until 8 or nine, after bfast, so they can choose to play or snooze as they wish. It's a good time for laptime,,my lap is one if the musical chairs here.
