    Pet sitter in Kerrville, Texas

    2018 UPDATE...Dog Boarding AND TRAINING IN HILL COUNTRY OF KERRVILLE, there is still limit in amount of dogs per month for board or board and train... reservations are preferred for boarding and required for training! Shaded Concrete Outdoor Kennel 6x8 Boarding/Inside Crating is what I now have available, with as many walks and attention as need be, plus free or line running (per evaluation), as well as group play, and off site socialization ( per evaluation) .
    An evaluation for boarding or board and train for any dog is $20 for One Hour Apprx, On Site (with All family members and dog for board and train asked to attend).. Not all dogs do best in this type of training or boarding environment, so an evaluation is required for board and train, but can be same day if I have the availability and your in a bind and you read and sign liability release, and pay a minimum of $200 dollars up front for 2 weeks. Must provide food as well and cash only. No Guarantees On Accepting Your Dog As A Boarder. NO AGGRESSIVE DOGS, FENCE BITERS OR DOGS THAT MAY POSE A RISK TO A PERSON OR OTHER DOG WILL BE ACCEPTED. Unsocialized Dogs/Fear Biters do not count as that and are evaluated as such.
    Service Dog skill training is for dogs with required disposition for a working or service dog. Not all dogs qualify and I am not held liable if you pursue other trainers whom tell you different, and whatever outcome good or bad occurs if you and your dog. It is sometimes the most difficult thing to hear the truth, however my truth is based on my experience and what I see and hear from you, as well as your dogs behavior. Please do not be offended if you and your dog are not willing or able to do the work of training ~ to have a respectable model of a service and working dog team in the community ~ as well as understanding the different needs and tasks your dog is able to preform and what your own limitations and goals are, and are thereby denied service dog/working dog training by or with me. Anyone these days can go online and get fake Service Dog Tags! It’s an honor to have a true working dog whom is respected and understood as well as models other true working service dogs. It takes consistent work, and unfortunately not all dogs want to do this! Please understand that first and foremost and.speak in honesty about your dog (and potential partner?!) at evaluation. Here is my new number ! Call to set up an evaluation or boarding, or just to talk about your dog! Thank you!

    The Following Is information from 2010 (and was different property in Wimberley, no longer available care in this exact manner, but same love and care!)
    “Now have 2 Openings for Dogs that need Individualized Specific Daily Care that exceeds normal "boarding" between now and the week after Christmas. Is your dog a trained, working dog, or a special-needs pet that requires medication? This is the sort of Canines our family has over 50 years combined handling.. Whether your going on vacation, or just tied and up and busy otherwise we understand that all dogs are special, but some, because of their training or a situation, may require a little more than most vets or boarding facilities will offer. K9s stay inside on our ranch style property home, away from traffic and city noises. We have several large outdoor fenced off areas too for supervised play time or just sniffin around. All always have 24 hour supervision. We even have a Grammy here, who's in charge of lap-time for the dogs who's main need is being babied!! Drop off/Pick Up is available nearly anytime of day or night you may need (great for those nocturnal people! ) . You pay up front--> $30 Per Night per dog. We typically only house 5 large dogs and 5 Small Dogs typically each holiday/ or any day, but will consider others/especially sets of dogs. Just send an email with questions and a bit about your special buddy(s).
    Personally I am the winter property and animal caretaker, living in-house Sept-March and have 15 years handling K9s, everything from Police Dogs, Therapy Dogs, Guide Dogs, pets that have "bi-polar" or anxiety issues, and elder dogs. Price includes lots of play time, one on one time, as many feedings you require your dog to have on their normal feeding schedule, administering of their medications per Rx or PRN, and of course plenty of fresh water & un-limited potty "breaks". I also enjoy taking the dogs out (one on one) on daily nature walks on our 5 acres. My whole day and night is with the dogs, and I especially love "cuddle puppies"!!
    Requirements: All breeds, all ages considered. Must be non-agressive towards food/treats/toys and other animals, as well as people (with exceptions of trained police/security dogs). Your dog is not required to have had any training, but it is required to be up to date on all vaccinations and had them within the last 2 months. Bordetella is not required, nor is being on heart worm medication or flea and tick preventative, although we do recommend it. You provide their food, any toys/bedding/medication and written instructions for us to follow!
    Per request I can also do Professional Grooming and Training with your dog while they are here for a set fee of $20/hour, payable up front as well. Registered and Certified Working/Service K9's get free bathing, free toe-nail trim and free light grooming if needed before they go home ALWAYS! Oh and yes, we "speak all dialects of Woof". . References Available upon request.
