Your dog's home in west Carycary, NC

Hi, this is Janice Huei-Ju Hsu, a mom of 6 ( 3 kids, 2 cat and 1 dog). We live in a medium size single-family house, with a big fully fenced yard surrounded by trees and birds.

When we play in the yard, your dog will be exploring in this semi-natural environment. He will have friends to play with, human to cuddle with and of course, sunshine and grass to enjoy~

***I know every dog has his own personality, but with young kids at home, I can only take well-trained and well-behaved dogs. Which means if your dog has a tendency to mark in the house, like to dig the yard, chew the mulch, not able to tolerate young children's touch and noise, like to jump on people...sorry this is not a place for him/her. ***

***Every dog is important and needs protection so please have up-to-date vaccination record and use flea/tick/heartworm preventatives in time before coming.***

About young puppies:

We love puppies! My home is a very good environment for your young puppy to get socialized, kids of different age (4-10), dogs of different sizes and all kinds of noise and fun. However, puppies are more likely to pick up germs and virus (just like kids going to daycare). I clean my floor every other day and pickup any possible harm in the yard, but still, I can't guarantee they won't get anything from other dogs. Please understand.

About cats:

I live with cats from the year of 2000, so I know well how to take care of them. Cats love people, just don't show as dogs do. I am willing to travel within 5 miles to take care of your cats when you are not around, and make sure they have everything they need.

FYI: NEW OPENING HOURS!

Mondays: 7am-8pm

Tuesdays, Wednesdays: 5pm-8pm

Thursdays: only with appointment from 7am- Noon

Fridays, Saturdays: 7am-8pm

Sundays: 2pm-7pm

My husband and I love dogs, we have two of our own (Blue Heeler and American Bully) as well as our volunteer efforts through Pit Bull rescue programs!

Our kennel is situated on the farm that my husband and I live on, giving the dogs a great amount of space to run, play and just be a dog! (We even bring out the wading pools on HOT days!) Alongside the kennel house we offer multiple play areas. This allows dogs to socialize and play with each other, as well as providing private pens for older dogs or those dogs who need individual space. We enjoy being with the dogs playing fetch, tug a war and Frisbee! At night, all dogs are tucked in and kenneled in our temperature controlled kennel house.

We have specialized training in working with difficult dogs, as well as working with dogs who may need to brush up on their listening skills. We set up a meet & greet to get to know you and your dog prior to boarding with us. This allows you to see the facility and for us to become familiar with your dog and any needs that he/she may have. I only work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Publix, on those days will vary the drop of and pick up time, all other days I am very flexible. We offer Military/Veteran, all Public safety employees and teacher discount. We are looking forward to meeting you and booking your dog’s stay!

Large fenced yard, lots of playtimeRaleigh, NC

We are available for arrival and departures Saturday and Sunday with flexible times however; usually, Monday - Friday we are available for arrivals and departures after 6:30pm.

We, (Anne and John) live in North Raleigh/Wake Forest, near Falls Lake and LOVE dogs. Both of us have had dogs essentially our whole lives. Everyone in our family has dogs. I guess we are just "dog people". We assist with East Coast Tranport Animal Rescue (transporting puppies and dogs from high kill shelters in the south to rescues in northern states where they can find a forever home) and we support MAMMAS rescue.

We would love to host your dog for their vacation! Our own pups (Tarfu, Makeda, Hallie, Titan and Atlas) ) are well socialized to all our guests, Tarfu and Makeda have earned AKC Canine Good Citizen awards. Atlas is working on obedience rally certificates. Hallie is working on sleeping more, and Titan is the natural born clown. Scheduled meal times, regular play times and frequent outdoor activities keep everyone well exercised and on balance. Lots of treats for our guests, and a treat for fur parents to know that their doggies are being well taken care of, played with, and loved on their vacation too. Text pictures and updates as well, because we always look forward to that while we are away from our dogs.

Your pet(s) will be sure to come home happy and tired! We have about 2 acres that is fenced to run and play, and an additional fenced area patio/pool house to lounge around in. Aside from focusing on things like tennis balls and chasing games, we care for all guests in a very safe fashion. If the doggies are outside, then so are we. Everyone is fed in a separate location, and we pay attention to needs and behaviors. At night every sleeps on their own bed, in our bedroom.

We are both RN's and are comfortable with physical ailments, if your dog should have special medical needs. Please understand before contacting us that we both are working full time outside of our home. We board dogs in our home "for fun" and because we love dogs, and our dogs love dogs.

In order to keep a managable schedule we are available for arrival and departure Saturday and Sunday with flexible times however; usually we only available for arrivals and departures after 6:30pm on Monday- Friday.

This may impact your pups length of stay if your travel plans require you to leave before evening hours. We are home earlier; but need that time after work to feed, excercise and give attention to any guests that we may have plus our own crew. Upon arrival of new guests we take a very long time to introduce each dog individually so as not to overwhelm any pups.

We are able to board guests Monday - Friday with the understanding that your pup will not have a human with them for approximately (6) six hours each day, and will be napping in one of our top quality Impact Brand crates. But, after that...the fun begins and we love being outside!!!

Daycare: limited to repeat guests, Saturday only.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Holidays are limited to repeat customers only.

Please note: As stated above, arrival and departure time Monday-Friday will need to be after 6:30 pm.

We require that all our guests be house trained and non destructive. Also, your pet will be sleeping with us in our bedroom, so kindly bring your pup recently bathed. Our guests play well together but sometimes play hard. For the safety of our other guests, we respectfully ask that your pups nails are trimmed and smooth so they do not cause injury to another dog during play.

Things to bring...

1) Food and treats

2) Sturdy collar and leash

3) Special blanket and or bed

4) Special toy that your dog "knows it belongs to them"

5) An article of the owners clothing, worn and not washed to keep in crate to help with seperation anxiety

6) please have nails trimmed as short as possible

We DO NOT board aggressive breeds (or any aggressive dogs), All our guests must be spayed or neutered, and friendly with other dogs.

Boarding is a rolling 24-hour period. Any stay after the 24 hours may be subject to an additional fee.

If you have previously boarded your pet with us, and we are marked as "booked", please contact us and let us know your needs. We only accept one "new to us" dog at a time. When we have multiple dogs as shown in the photos, they are repeat customers and have been here enough that we know their personalities, and behaviors. Most of the dogs even know each other. Previous guests that socialize well are considered VIP guests and are welcome in addition to other guests we may have already booked. We are proud to say that Rover records indicate that 99 percent of our doggie guests are "repeat boarders"!!!

Safe Dog Boarding & Drop-In Visits!Cary, NC

My husband I have lived with and rescued animals for many years including fostering with the ASPCA. Current permanent residents include two adults, two children, two cats, a three legged turtle and a one eyed dog (not our fault). You can be assured that your pet will receive plenty of attention in a stress free environment. I now also do drop in visits for cats and dogs if you prefer that your pets stay in a familiar environment.

Before booking please plan on scheduling a Meet and Greet with our family. We require a prior meeting to your first stay so your pet can meet us and we can do a temperament test to make sure this is the right environment for your pup. We also require all pups to be spayed or neutered to visit with us and to be up to date on all vaccines.

We ask that you provide the following items to make your pups stay as comfortable as possible:

1. Food - instructions on how often ,time frames and amounts ( allergies if any as well)

2. Leash and collar or harness ( we do not use retractable leashes on walks )

3. Comfort items if your pup needs them (Bed, Blanket and toys)

Amenities include a room (w/toys, music and TV), crates, and a huge, private fully fenced backyard (with locks) for potty breaks and play every two hours or as needed. Special requests and needs, within reason, can be accommodated.

*If you book for one night of care, that encompasses a 24 hour sitting period. A daycare rate of $15 will be added on if the booking extends more than two hours beyond the 24 hour period. However, if there is an emergency or other such extenuating circumstances allowances can always be made. Please note: a delayed flight is not an emergency.

**Available for pick up's and drop off''s seven days a week between the hours of 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. When booking please provide a time frame of drop off time and pick up time as we set a 30 min window between drop offs so everyone has a walk by themselves before others join them during their visit this helps with anxiety and gives us a chance to bond with your pet .
