There's been a lot of changes in my life since I last posted. The kennel I was working at was sold and I left there at the end of September. So I decided to expand my business and I'm now also doing dogs and offering very limited in home boarding. This involved building an outdoor pen for dogs and also a couple of indoor pens for large dogs. Smaller dogs can be housed in my house. Things have worked out well so far and I have stayed fairly busy since leaving the kennel.
It's been interesting as to which dogs take well to this sort of thing. Dogs who the owners felt would never get along with my cats and would be terrible have been absolutely fine. Dogs who appeared to be more laid back needed to be segregated from the kitties.
It does work out well for the dogs though as they get much more one on one time then they would get at a large boarding kennel . They also get longer walks and much more exercise (if they can tolerate it). Walks and exercise are always tailored to the individual pets needs.
