Our pup stayed with Tristram and Laurel already twice but this was the first time he stayed for more than one night. Our pup had a really great time and even found a new friend to play with. Tristram and Laurel sent us the cutest photos everyday and we could enjoy our short vacation knowing that our fur baby is doing fine. We already booked his next stay-)

This is the first time we have left our Pitbull w/ anyone outside of family or our vet. Tristam and Laurel are AMAZING. We went out of state and they took the time to send pictures of our Semper playing in their yard and with their dogs. They are so welcoming, and their home is so dog friendly and comfortable feeling. We have already booked another trip, and with my travel schedule filling up the ...

What Tristram & Laurel would like to know about your dog

Does your dog crate? If so, what does your dog do in their crate?

We love all breeds and mixes, but we do ask that any dog staying with us is crate trained (calm, comfortable, and quiet in a crate). For everyone's safety, dogs will be crated at night or if we have to be away from the house for any reason. They will get lots of time out walking, running, and playing, so when they go up, they are worn out and ready for a nap! With your permission, we will also give them a stuffed kong to keep them occupied in their crate.

We are more than happy to watch dogs with behavioral issues, but we will need to gather lots of information from you beforehand to make sure we are the right fit for your dog and to keep our family and your pet safe.

We will want to know:
1) What does your pup do off leash with other dogs? What is their play style?
2) What does your dog do when they are on leash and see another dog and/or person?
3) Has your dog ever bitten another dog?
4) Has your dog ever bitten a person?
5) Has your dog ever lived with or stayed with cats? What does your dog do around cats?
6) Has your dog ever bitten a cat?
7) Does your dog resource guard (have issues sharing) toys, sleeping areas, water or people with other dogs?
8) Does your dog have accidents (including marking)? If yes, please explain.
9) Does your dog have a history of being destructive? If yes, please explain.
10) Does your dog vocalize when left alone? If yes, please explain.
11) Does your dog have any dietary restrictions?

We ask that you please provide us with a copy of your dogs up to date vaccination records. Please have your dog current on flea, tick, heartworm, and internal parasite prevention.

We offer a FREE pick up/drop off service!

If you are happy with our care of your dog after their stay, write us a 5 star review and get 20% off of your next booking!

Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions at all! We love to talk all things dog ;)

About Tristram & Laurel's Home

When Tristram & Laurel watches your pet

Your dog will get lots of play in our yard alone and/or with our dogs (if appropriate)! We also have a flirt pole, lots of dog safe balls and discs for fetch, and a small dog pool for the summer. We have a creek and trail running behind our house, so we can take your pup for walks there or at one of the other parks nearby! We have lots of interactive treat dispensing toys, so your pup can have fun and get a mental workout while eating their meals! We will continue to reinforce any training you have started and teach your pup how to earn the things they want :)

Your dog will get their own, private room where their crate will be set up for naps and overnight. They will eat their meals in their room alone, so there is no risk of fights breaking out due to resources. They will get multiple potty and play breaks throughout the day with naps in their room or out with our dogs if everyone gets along. We find that dogs do really well with this structured schedule!

We are capable of keeping your dog completely separated from our animals if required. If that set up is necessary, all animals will be on a crate and rotate schedule.

We will also send you daily pictures and updates while you are away, so you never have to go a day without seeing your beloved pup!
