The first step we need to take is setting up a time for a FREE Meet and Greet! The safety of your fur baby, and those of our clients' are of the utmost importance to us.
Therefore, we require before any reservations are made that we meet your furry friend. We check for temperament, and discuss any questions you may have, any individual needs, and prepare for the next step, reserving your dates! It's a great way for you to get to know us, while we get to know you, and your dog.
Before we get into what Fido's day is like, here's a couple of reasons that make us the best. Unlike most places where you have to pay additional for playtime, at Ohilda's Dog Sitting, LLC, it's all included. Our facilities are completely fenced in, and your fur baby will never be left unsupervised. Our promise to you is that we will love them like our own.
When you arrive, we give your pup some time to settle in, have a potty break, explore the inside of the house, get comfy, and start making friends with our own pups, Rebelle and Stella.
After everyone's met and settled in, we play some ball, tug, or have a squeaky toy party with all the toys! We then take a short nap, before we grab leashes and head outside for another potty break.
We may take several laps around our huge, circular driveway, or we may go off-leash in the enclosed paddock, where zoomies are bound to happen! There's lots of squirrels to chase, and the chickens may not be too far off on the other side of the fence. During the hot Florida summer months, we offer splash pools for your babies to cool off, and play in!
After burning off some energy, when everyone is good and tired, we head back in for some yummy treats, and your bestie can then choose whether to lay on a couch, a soft, quality bed, or the nice cool tile. Fresh water is always available 24/7, and bowls are frequently cleaned and refilled.
Usually, this ends up being nap time, or just a quiet time to sit on a human's lap, or maybe get some belly rubs. Being that we limit the amount of dogs we board, your pup will definitely get lots of one-on-one attention.
Then we go back out for another 30-45 minute play time with both humans and furry friends. Finally, as the day ends, we bring everyone in for a short nap before dinner. After dinner, we have one more potty break, and settle in for the night to relax. Right before lights go out, and everyone is tucked in, we do a final potty break.
The next morning, we wake up, go potty, have breakfast, and do it all over again.
Here are the top 5 reasons of why you should board your dog with us!
1. Your dog will never be kenneled. Crates are brought by you, and only if your dog is used to being in one as their den.
2. Your dog will be a part of our pack, and treated as such.
3. You won't ever have to worry about strangers going to your home. For those that value their privacy, this is a big perk!
4. Unlike large facilities, you won’t ever have to pay additional for your dog to have playtime, either group or individual. It’s all included!
5. We adhere to the same routine and structure that your dog receives at home when it comes to feeding, sleeping and potty times, unless requested otherwise.
