No Females in Heat
We are so grateful to Steve for taking such great care of our dog for a
Our puppy loved the stay and we found Steve easy to communicate with. We enjoyed pictures of our dog while we were away.
It was the first time I left my dogs for so many days. It’s very hard for me to leave them. I was very anxious because my little one not always get along with other dogs and my rescue is with us for only little more than 8 months and I didn’t know how it would work. Steve was so patient and calm and managed my dogs so well. His response to my ...
Home full-time - medium fenced yard
I live in a house with a fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood with lots of open space, sidewalks and parks nearby. Your dog will have free roam of my main floor, and I let them out during the day frequently.
I work from home so your dog be with constant company while in my care. I go for a 20-40 minutes walk with all dogs every morning and every evening. I also let them ...
What Steve would like to know about your dog
I require all prospective boarders to come to my house for a short visit. During this time I'll evaluate aggressive tendencies or extreme shyness, and no worries I will give them time to adjust to the surroundings and understand angst that comes with meeting someone new. I want to make sure your dog will be comfortable in my house, with my dog, with other dogs and with my kids.
I prefer crate trained dogs, though I will not force your dog into a crate, will work on training them if you ask.
Your dog will have some separation anxiety because you are gone and he/she is not at home; please bring a chew toy from home to help with that.
Also if you are flying to your destination and thus packing bags; dogs understand what packed bags mean and may decide they have other ideas - I advise bringing your dog to my house before you pack a single bag. Also I advise against planning to drop your dog off on the way to the airport, for peace of mind drop them off 6 to 8 hours before you leave.
I have a two day minimum stay for weekends, exceptions may be given to prior multi-day stay clients only.
Drop off time starts at 8:30 am, I may consider earlier drop off for repeat customers, if it works for me.
The daily fee is for overnight or 24 hours, I'll give 3 hours leeway before charging another day.
