How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.
A lifelong dog lover with experience in several K9 fields including boarding, training/ advanced obedience, grooming, vet tech, etc.
What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
Any needs the animal may have or prefer. I accept most breeds and have no size preferences as long as they are NOT aggressive with other animals! I am sorry but I no longer accept Pit Bulls. Pit mixes.
It is extremely rare that I ever have aggression issues but the few times I have, it has been from Pits.
I do require all dogs be current on their vaccinations. Or have a recent titer showing immunity.
Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
Yes. I have a large SUV
Are you comfortable administering medication?
Yes. I was a veterinary tech so I am comfortable giving any meds that my guests may need.
How much time do you plan on spending with my dog?
This is what I do for my living so I am home spending time with my boarders most of the time.
Do you have a fenced yard?:
I have a completely fenced in large run area with a doggy door attached into the house.
Where will my dog sleep?:
Your dog will have a choice of sleeping arrangements. Either stretched out on a couch or in their own kennel or wherever their owner requests.
Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it:.
I generally let the dogs play in their large run and on leash in my yard with lakefront. I would be more than happy to take them on individual walks if the owner desires.

Your pet will have access to a doggy door into a fully fenced in/ pet safe yard. I have tons of pet toys they are welcome to play with and you are more than welcome and encouraged to bring along any favorite toys, bedding, kennels, etc that your pet is happy with. You provide their main food but I provide everything else including home made, organic treats and snacks. I make these treats once a week and it is definitely a favorite day among the "crew" as they are my official taste testors! (If you prefer your pet not have any treats, I of course will follow your wishes.) Your dog(s) will be able to run, play, have fun and be loved and snuggled any time they need or want. They can even sit on the furniture (if you allow that). Your furry kids are also welcome to come with me for short rides to the store or just for the sake of "going for a ride" as I take my pups almost everywhere with me and guests are welcome to come along if they are comfortable with and used to car rides. Special needs pets welcome and I am very comfortable administering any meds your pet may need.
If you recieve email or texting while you are away I will send you updates and photos of your pets having fun and enjoying their stay. This way you can be sure your fur baby is being well taken care of and having fun! You are, of course, welcome to call and check on them any time you want.
I also post pictures of my guests on my Dingo Design facebook page frequently. This way you can see full size photos which you and your family can enjoy.

Committed to the happiness, health and safety of your pets.
Please understand that I can not accept aggressive dogs as they will be around other folks furry loved ones. I very rarely have issues with dogs fighting or not getting along for this reason. Everyone has to play nice with one another.
Please be current on all shots and worming and have your pets inoculation records available.
Thank you for your understanding in these matters!.
I am also very happy to care for those pets that have parents who leave on a regular basis such as slope workers. I provide a "Home away from Home" for them and my current regulars treat my house as they do their own. They always have a great time when they come stay with "Auntie Penny" as I have come to be called. :-) My pups and I always miss them until they come to see us again.
