The safety of your dogs is our first priority. That's the reason we named ourselves "Watchdog" instead of something whimsical like you'll see elsewhere. Sure, we get all mushy over their adorable faces and ultra-cute behaviors. In fact, the white ears you see at the bottom right belong to one of our own dogs, whose nickname is "Sunshine Doll-face Angel." If we had to board Sunshine, we'd be in a very difficult position. She's a grumpy girl and we are very overprotective, anxious dog-parents. So first off, MOST  kennels wouldn't accept her disposition, and secondly, MOST  kennels wouldn't meet our incredibly high standards. We want our fur-babies to be supervised and safe 24/7, PLUS we want to know how they're doing so we can relax while on vacation or focus while​ at work. ​


Accordingly, in keeping with our standards:

1. We are on-site ALL THE TIME. We live here; we do NOT leave your dogs at 5:00 PM, caged and alone, only to return at 7:00 the next morning.

​2. You can feel free to request text, picture, or video message updates so you know your dogs are safe and well.

​3. Contact between dogs in our care is strictly limited to prevent fighting and accidents. Inter-dog contact is at the sole discretion of the owner(s). Each dog will receive ample exercise and playtime individually to ensure their stay is fun and comfortable.

​4. Because we don't lump a bunch of dogs into one big play area with the blind assumption they'll all just "get along," we can board dogs with any disposition, personality, or special medical needs.

​5. We are located less than one mile from an excellent animal hospital so you'll have no worries in the event of an emergency.

​6. If your particular circumstances require unusual scheduling we can accommodate your needs. We understand it's all about the quality of life you can offer your pets, and we want to be your partner in that endeavor.

​7. If you rely on your watchdogs for home security while you're away, we can come to your home to make sure they have daily companionship and care via our pet sitting service.
