Avoid the drawbacks of most large kennels:
Fleas, ticks, worms, boredom, kennel cough, etc! Dogs in big kennels don't get much personal attention and tend to spend the day laying around, bored.
I'm Naomi, the dog sitter. I've raised and trained many dogs and volunteered at the JSPCA emergency veterinary clinic here in Jerusalem. I've taken care of animals of all ages (newborn to geriatric) and of all kinds (giant Golden Retrievers to tiny Toy Poodles) with many medical conditions (including those which require pills, injections and physical therapy). Most of all, though, I'm a dog lover.
I have a large, fenced off yard that gets lots of sun and has tall grass - perfect to roll around in while chewing a bone. A stay with me includes at least ninety minutes of physical activity (walks, play) and twenty full hours of my presence with the dogs per day. I screen every animal for violent tendencies, ensuring that your four-legged-friend receives lots of personal attention in a safe, comforting environment. My guests stay inside with me, sleeping in a dog bed or on a blanket home. Dog care is my full-time occupation, not a part-time hobby, and as such I take it very seriously.
