Pet Sitting and Pet Boarding

We know how hard it can be to have to leave your pet behind when you have to be away from home.

We offer pet sitting in your home or the ability to bring your animal to our home and have him or her boarded here while you are away. We specialize in "kennel-free" boarding*!  We also have the capability to do traditional kennel boarding** per request.

*What is Kennel-Free Boarding?

This is our specialty!  Kennel-free boarding is where your dog or dogs comes to stay in our home and lives right alongside our own dogs.  They have free reign of the house and plenty of room to do as they please..nap, play, socialize, cuddle, etc.  Crates are available to dogs that have that as a part of their regular routine, but crating is not mandatory.  Crates are used for feeding and sleeping for dogs that use them at home.

**What is Tradition Kennel Boarding?

Our version of traditional kennel boarding is still in our own home.  We have 6 5X10' kennels, 2 12X14' kennels and 1 4X8' kennel in the downstairs of our own home that can accommodate a dog that does not want to stay with other dogs.  The dog will have both indoor and outdoor exercise in their own private areas, free of other dogs.  They will also receive the same 24 hour a day care as the Kennel-Free dogs, unlike most kennels that are not staffed at night.

Daycare is also available to all boarders as well as dogs staying overnight in their own homes.  

We can provide the transportation to daycare to any pet in our care.

Our goal is help your pet enjoy their normal routine while you are away and reduce the stress on to both you and your pet.

As part of the intake process we will discuss your pet's eating and exercise schedule as well as a list of their favorite toys and treats.

We are happy to come to your pet or have your pet come to us.  We have the ability and the facilities to help your pet enjoy your time apart; and for you to enjoy your vacation!

This is our outdoor dog play and potty area.  It is newly expanded and improved!  It is escape proof and almost an acre large.  As you can see, the dogs have breathtaking, waterfront views as they attend to their business.

If you pet has any special needs, just let us know, we can accommodate most situations.

My own dog, EJ, has a medical condition that requires that he eat with his head up, so I found this baby walker and he has his own private table.

I also have fostered a Border Collie named Oreo that walks using a wheel chair.  She was found in a ditch in North Carolina and has lost use of her hind legs due to an injury.  Our home is very wheelchair accessible and Oreo can enjoy the same fun as all the other dogs!

I don't know what happened at your house this weekend, but Sidney is wiped out!  She has been sleeping since I picked her up from your house. Clearly she had a lot of fun, puppy playtime and overall had a great time with you this weekend.  I am so impressed with your dedication to furry animals!  I would recommend you to all and anyone who will listen.
