Your pet will accompany us the entire day. While home, they will spend
the day inside with one of us, or use the dog door to go outside and
play or lay in the sun in our large fenced in yard. A typical day will
include plenty of monitored play and sleep time at the house as well
as at least one excursion away from the house, which may be a longer
walk around town (possibly to downtown or Redwood Grove), to a dog
park, or to a neighborhood school to run around and play with other
dogs. Once or twice a week we try to take dogs on a longer more exotic
trip. In the warmer summer months this is often to the beach or nearby
lake. In the winter it may be a hike in the hills or along Stevens
Creek or Los Gatos Creek Trail. We will end each day by sending you
photos to show you the fun your pet has been having.
Where your dog goes depends on a lot of factors, including:
1) What type of outing does your dog like? Some dogs like slow
walks where they can smell the grass and bushes. Other dogs like
running and chasing tennis balls. Older dogs may not have the
energy to go on long outings, while younger dogs may be able to go
further than us.
2) The weather. Rainy days typically mean shorter walks around the
neighborhood or a trip to the dog park with artifical turf. Hot
days may also mean short walks or a trip to a shady park.
3) Is your dog good off-leash in a non-fenced area? We only take
dogs we fully trust and are completely attached to us to such
locations. Other dogs need to stay on leash or in fenced in areas.
4) What other dogs are with us? If we take all dogs out at the same
time we need to pick an activity suitable for all of them.
We've included a map to help you better understand some of
the activities we take dogs on and, in case you want to take your
furry family member there when they aren't staying with us, show you
where locations are.
