Don't Let Your Pet Suffer in a Jail
(i.e. Kennel)




When was the last time your pet put you in jail?

That's why we come to your home and love your pets as much as you love them!


Your Pets Love to Play

So Let Them!

When you tell your pet you’re bringing them to the kennel,
they think you’re sending them to jail.

Don’t send your pet to jail.

 

Being stuck in an over-priced, disease-ridden cage for days on end
does not encourage their playful spirit to thrive.

 

That’s where we come in.

 

We’re going to be completely honest: we love happy pets

 

That’s why we go to/stay at your house.

We take your pets on walks.

We feed your pets (sort of important).

Most of all, we play with your pets.



This is your dog when they are in a kennel (i.e. jail).

Sad, weary, and most of all, lonely. They aren't happy and they really miss playing.






This is your dog when we stay with them.

Happy, playful, energetic, and (somewhat)
well-behaved. They love to play!

A Little Taste of Our Bark

The Joy of Puppies!

Posted by Michaela on May 2, 2017

This past weekend, we had the joy of taking care of this 9 month old puppy, Mia. It was a fun, exhausting, loving, exhausting experience! Did I mention that it was exhausting?! Puppies can be like that! We’ve written about puppies before in our blog post “3 Ways to the Best Puppy“, and we want to delve into this topic more. Puppies are just like little humans. They need A LOT of attention. If you’re contemplating getting a puppy, make sure that you have a lot of time to devote to their care…and not just during the day. All puppies should be crate trained and/or confined into a certain area of the home, for example, the laundry room, especially when you first bring them home. The goal is for them to be able to be alone without whining or crying, or becoming overly stressed. That way you can go to work, go to the grocery store, and basically live your life! Crate training is important for you to be able to transport the puppy to the Vet in the car. A puppy that can free roam throughout the home can get into a lot of trouble, even if the owners are at home! Shoes can be chewed up, or a puppy can eat a pair of socks, which might have to be surgically removed (We know a puppy who had this happen!) Leash and Collar A puppy can be leash trained from DAY ONE. A leather leash is our preference, because a vinyl leash has the tendency to burn human hands. Any collar will work for your puppy.

4 Hazards To Watch Out For This Easter

4 Hazards To Watch Out For This Easter

Posted by Michaela on Apr 11, 2017

Easter is a time to make memories with your family. This does not include running to the vet while your dog is about to get sick. Here are four hazards to watch out for this Easter season. Easter Lily-Did you know that if your cat gets into an Easter Lily it can be highly toxic? Make sure to keep it away from them, either on a counter they can’t jump on, or not in your home. Easter Grass-As with any type of tinsel, this can cause severe digestive issues if your dog or cat gets into Easter Grass. When you are doing easter baskets make sure to put your animals in another room while you and your children are having fun. Chocolate– This is very important to watch out for. Those chocolate ears are the best though, right? Well, your dog might think so for the first five minutes until they get a really bad belly ache. Chocolate can kill a dog if they eat too much of it and don’t get the correct care as soon as possible. To mitigate this issue, put your chocolate in an area where your dog can’t sniff it out in the kitchen. Xylitol– We know that your dog can be a bit mischevious. We don’t want Fido to get into that yummy candy that has xylitol in it though. It can also be very harmful to them. Did you know that some Peanut Butters now have xylitol in it instead of just plain sugar?? Read those ingredients and you will be well on your way. Easter is a time to come together...

3 Ways To The Best Puppy!

3 Ways To The Best Puppy!

Posted by Michaela on Sep 24, 2015

  Here is what you need to do DAY ONE to have the best puppy! Have you been pulled down the street by your dog yanking your arm from the end of the leash? Does your dog bark like crazy over nothing? These are just a couple of examples that people get to deal with in adult dogs when these three items are not followed from the very beginning. Take your puppy to low stimulating places and let them socialize. Most puppies aren’t ready to go to the dog park at such a young age because they haven’t had their immunizations yet. A dog park is also a VERY stimulating place which can make your dog very excited or nervous. Instead, take them for a ride in a car, or a walk down the sidewalk! Daily walks! This is so incredibly important. We have had clients say that they have poorly behaved dogs. This is especially true for puppies ages 2 months to 2 years old. The usual reason is that the puppy has pent up energy. When you go for a walk, make sure to do a good 30-minute walk, both for you and your dog. A happy puppy is a result of walking off puppy energy. Buy your puppy plenty of toys. Puppies love to pull and tear apart absolutely everything. Give your puppy a toy that they can either digest (i.e. a hard bone) or something they can’t pull apart easily, like a rubber toy. Be careful of the toys that have stuffing in them, as many dogs will chew and swallow the strings and stuffing, which isn’t...
