HAPPY HUSKY HAVENAbington, PA

Serving Abington, Roslyn, Willow Grove and beyond !!! We are a great alternative to staying in a kennel. We are home most of the day except for an errand every now and then. We live in a ranch style home on 1/3 of an acre with part in which there is a 60' by 130' lot with a 5' high chain link fence for security.

We have many repeat clients. Some come as far as Philadelphia, Cherry Hill, Ardmore ,Bryn Mawr, Phoenixville, West Chester and Center City areas ! We are a very short distance from PA Turnpike exit to Willow Grove !

Check out our facebook page HAPPY HUSKY HAVEN for more pictures !!

We have 40 plus years experience with the Northern Breeds (Siberian Huskies, American Eskimos and Alaskan Malamutes). We will watch most kinds of dogs as long as there are no "alphas, divas or aggressive" issues. All dogs need to be HOUSEBROKEN (no "PEE PADS") and SPAYED OR NEUTERED. We accept "continent" Seniors. All dogs must be able to navigate 3 deck steps. Please no "diggers" or "chewers" ! We don't normally take pups/dogs under 2 years old but we will access at the meet and greet. We also do not take dogs under 25 pounds. ALL SHOTS MUST BE CURRENT. I WILL NEED COPY OF THIS. BORDETELLA SHOT IS REQUIRED DUE TO MULTIPLE DOGS HERE. DOG MUST BE VERY SOCIAL AND USED TO STAYING IN HOMES OTHER THAN THEIR OWN.

Your dog will not be crated unless it is part of their training with your crate or ours. Your dog can sleep anywhere they want, including our bed. We want your pet to feel like they are at home. We follow your food schedule and administer medication and supplements in food or "pill pockets." We feed in stainless steel bowls. Bowls are washed after every meal. We cannot "FREE FEED" (leave food down all day) because of the other dogs that stay here.

With people vacationing for a week and some for a long weekends, there will be an overlap of dogs at times. There might be 3 dogs on any given week and up to 6 or 7 during weekends with constant supervision. We are flexible with drop off and pick up times. (NO EARLIER THAN 9 AM DROP OFFS OR LATER THAN 9 PM PICK UPS) After all this is a private home !

This is a one story rancher with no steps inside. There are a few deck steps for entrance to the house and deck steps that lead to the back yard should your dog have issues with getting up and down steps or is a Senior dog. Your dog will enjoy our huge yard for running and playing. In the evenings we spend time out back on the deck with the "fur-kids." This is a NON-SMOKING house with CENTRAL AIR. Our yard is treated for fleas and ticks and our dog is FLEA FREE!!! In the winter months, your dog will relax in the evening in the living room with us while being warmed by the wood burning stove. In the summer months we hang out back on the deck enjoying the fresh air.

So, bring your dog here and she/he will have fun and be well taken care of ! Your dog becomes our dog for the time they are here and will get hugs and love while you are away!!!

Experienced + Trustworthy Dog LoverFairmount-Spring Garden, Philadelphia, PA

I'm a dog owner since I was a kid. I love taking care of dogs - walking, feeding, bathing, playing, etc. I live at the parkway & my place is pet-friendly (it also has a dog park). I prefer to dog sit 1-2 dogs per night because I want to provide proper nurturing and quality time. I work on weekdays, but I make sure to feed and walk the dog in the morning and afternoon. My work is just 10 mins away from my home so I come by sometimes during lunch break to do another walk. My weekend availability varies - when I am available it means I am just at home the whole day. Currently, I don't have a dog living with me, but I grew up with different kinds of breeds: cocker spaniel, bulldog, dachshund, chihuahua, and other mixed breeds. I believe that dogs are like children; you have to treat them with love, patience, respect... and give them lots of attention! :) Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

My home is best suited for small to medium sized dogs that get along well with other dogs. I also do dog daycare and dog walking. I love all dogs and I treat every dogs as my own. They will get uncountable hugs and kisses through out the day. We will play through out the day inside and outside the house. I have many experiences with difference types, sizes and personalities.

Home Away From HomeCobbs Creek, Philadelphia, PA

Hi! I'm Dana. I live with my amazing dog Oliver, a Cocker Spaniel. We'd love to have your pup stay over!

I work from home and have a very flexible schedule. I have many years of experience caring for other dogs in their homes and mine. This neighborhood is great for dogs! Clark Park is right down the block, and Penn's campus is not far.

Your pup can choose to hang out and sleep on the furniture, the floor, or, if he/she (or you) prefers, in the small crate that Oliver never uses (you can also bring your own bed and/or crate, of course). Oliver is good about sharing his space and his toys. Because this is West Philadelphia, there are the usual city noises; the only dogs who won't be comfortable here are those that are very sensitive to noise. If for any reason your dog needs medical attention, there are a number of excellent vets in the area. So, you can sleep easy knowing that your pet will be safe with me.

Please note that I have two ongoing time commitments around which drop-offs and pickups have to work. On Wednesdays, I am gone from 6 - 8:45 PM. On Sundays, I am gone from 2:45 - 4:30 PM. Other than those two time periods, I do my best to work around your schedule.

I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Why I love dog sitting:

I have always loved dogs! Growing up, my brothers and I begged my parents for a dog. They got us gerbils, turtles, and fish - all the wannabe-dogs in the world - until finally giving in and getting Maggie, a Springer Spaniel.

Since then, I have cared for many, many dogs. They have been on all kinds of diets and all kinds of medications - that stuff is no problem for me. I couldn't get a dog of my own until I got out of grad school; as soon as I could, I found Oliver.

My experience administering medication:

I am a neuroscientist by training; I do not balk at a couple of pills and needles. I have cared for dogs with health problems before and know how important it is that they take their medication on time every day. I also know to watch for the symptoms of various diseases.
