Quirky Corgi

11 Feb

Recently Black dog took care of a Quirky guy named Welly! Welly’s mom and 2 little girls set out to  soak up some sun in Arizona for a few days.  So they trusted their little guys care to Black dog so he could enjoy his own vacation. Welly’s mom wasn’t sure how much he would enjoy walks with us. So we took it slow and enjoyed some early morning strolls in order to avoid anything that would over stimulate this little herding dog. Welly spent his afternoons in the yard and enjoyed lots and lots of snuggles in the evening.

Chaco and his friend Luckie

31 Jul

Recently Black Dog got to provide an in-home vacation for Chaco, Luckie and their kitty. These dogs don’t get left alone often but it was time for their loving parents to celebrate an anniversary. So they trusted Black dog to care for their babies.

Chaco and Luckie had a great vacation while they were away.  We spent the mornings strolling the neighborhood. First a short walk with the older guy Luckie then a bit more exercise for Chaco to get some of his energy out. The evenings were spent romping and playing around the backyard. Chaco’s mom was worried about him being alone so black dog gave him plenty of stuffed frozen kongs to keep him entertained.

The handsome Chaco is a little camera-shy but he allowed one picture while he was showing me his backyard.

Aussie Ranch Vacation

24 May

This week Black Dog Pet Services got to spend some time in the mountains with 6 very lucky dogs. Breeze, Relay, Rookie, Deuce, Jax and little Kit.

These dogs are living the life in their mountain home. They spent the week showing me around, helping me with the chickens and chasing deer. After dark they spent their time snuggling, wrestling (sometimes in the bed), and enjoying treats.

The last night of their vacation was a bit stormy.  Kit, Relay and Jax were a little nervous about the thunder so they wore their thunder jackets and snuggled in bed with me which made them feel better.

When mom gets home its back to agility training for most of these guys so we made sure to get lots of rest.

Even when the weather got rainy these dogs enjoyed their vacation with Black Dog!

Pug Vacation

27 Apr

This week Black Dog Pet Services is providing an in-home vacation for Oz and Odie, two adorable pugs.

Some of the activities they have enjoyed are frolicking in the backyard, playing tug with stuffed toys, and eating treats.

Odie gets worried about being alone, and about thunder storms.  To help him feel better we’ve been taking extra time cuddling on the couch, and have stuffed the Kong toys his mom and dad left for when he has to be alone.

Oz loves watching TV so we’ve been watching plenty of Animal Planet!  His favorite show is Dogs 101.

Odie and Oz

Look how cute they are! They’re all harnessed up and ready for their walk around the block.

Let us care for your pet, and they can have as much fun as Oz and Odie are having!

What is an in-home pet vacation, anyway?

At Black Dog Pet Services, we don’t just feed, water, and exercise your pets, we provide them with their own vacation so that you can enjoy yours.

For dogs, interactive games like fetch or tug, or just a relaxing walk will be included with each visit.  Dogs can get stressed when their owners leave town, and we will help alleviate some of that anxiety by providing extra tummy rubs and enrichment activities like puzzle toys.

Cats can be picky about who they hang out with, so we provide as much or as little interaction as your cat desires.  Be it stringy toys, special cat treats, or just extra TLC, each vacation is taylored to your cat’s wishes.

As for the humans, we take care of them, too.  Blog posts and personalized text or picture messages will be posted or delivered while you are away, and you will find a detailed itinerary of your pet’s vacation when you return.
