We start our day early. The first walk of the day is somewhere beween 7:00AM and 8AM. We take each dog out individually unless we have guests that live together. Each of our walks lasts 5 to 10 minutes. After our first walk, we serve breakfast. Each of our guests gets their own food that they have brought from home. We have everyone bring their own food and do our best to feed them at the same time you do at home. Eating the same diet and serving it around the same time takes the stress level down. Every guest gets a fresh bowl of water even if their water is clean. No one wants to drink stale water. Housekeeping comes in from 8:30AM till 10:00AM. Every suite is vaccummed and mopped out. The linens are cleaned ( if needed) and straightened. We start allowing the guests to have individual time out in the "sunroom" around 7:30AM and allow each guests at least 20 minutes per session. The sessions continue thru out the day till noon. After the "maids" have finished all their work we start taking out those guests who have requested extra walks during the day. While this is going on we also have guests out in the great hallway. We start our second walk for those on a regular schedule around 11:00 AM. We continue the second walk of the day till each guests has been out twice and those with special requests. We close to the public at noon but we stay here untill all guests have had all their needs served .
We have naptime from 1:00 PM till 6:00PM. Most of our guests are tired from the morning activities and welcome the time for a nice long nap. From 6:00PM till 7:00PM we are busy taking those guests who require extra walks and serving dinner. We also start allowing guests back up in the "sunroom" at that time. We open the doors to the public at 7:00PM. This allows us time to make sure everyone has had dinner and been out to potty before their "parents" come to get them. We accept incoming guests from 7PM till 8PM. We ask that they are here by 8PM to allow us to have some time with new arriving guests to make sure that they are settled before we leave for the evening. We allow pick ups from 7PM till 9PM. We try and make sure we have someone waiting on your arrival if...we know what time you are picking up or dropping off. We sometimes have multiple dogs that have to go out immediately. If this happens, we put a sign on the door that says we are out walking but will return shortly. If this happens to you please be patient. The guest always comes first because when they have to go..............THEY HAVE TO GO. We check the front door for parents between each walk. We make sure eveyone has had all their needs attended to and start "Tuck in" procedures around 9PM till..........whenever all are settled in and ready for bed. We close our door to the public at 9:00PM.
This schedule is based on a" full house" and is subject to change. Our hours stay the same but if there are less guests here, your pet would get more time out, ect..
