Why send your pets to a boarding facility when they can be part of a family in your absence? Make their vacation just as fun & relaxing as yours.
You will find that I truly love caring for my guests and really enjoy giving them a home away from home while you and your family are away.
Although I do this out of my home, I am a fully licensed commercial dog kennel through the State of Iowa. I have 12 years professional experience which includes doggie day care/ obedience training work, administering medications, light first aid, bathing, and dog foster care. Our home is typically calm, quiet, and also completely smoke free. We have a fenced backyard (6' privacy fence). We have a dog run leading from under our deck out to a separate fenced area that provides shade and also to help us keep the main area of our yard clean. Our front and back gates are locked from the inside, keeping your baby safe.
Your dog will enjoy our home as a member of our own family. His (or her) days would include lots of love and snuggles, belly rubs, games of fetch and laser chasing. Our guests are treated to cool, breezy naps on the screened porch during spring and fall, A/C in the summer, or resting beside the fire when they need to warm frosty little noses. I am sure to maintain the diet you provide, and exclude anything that you are uncomfortable with (i.e. snacks, treats, and/ or "cookies"). I make sure that your pet stays well hydrated via many well placed bowls of fresh water ready to be slurped up at a moments notice. You will be able to take home a very happy pet that has burned off lots of energy, leaving you and your family to enjoy your evening or return home.
I am happy to accept all breeds (once I can observe your pet's good temperament at a meet and greet) so long as your pet is compatible with all other pets and young children. All dogs MUST be comfortable with and able get along well with other dogs. They must not have any aggression issues regarding toys, food, or other items. While I do accept larger dogs. I am not sure that the largest/ most active ones will be a good fit, as we do have limited space. You are welcome to take a look at my photos & videos of Facebook at Pampered Pups Pet Sitting.
I do not take puppies that are not used to being around other dogs & are not 100% potty trained, or dogs that bark excessively.
