For Boarding Clients

Your dog will receive our full attention because we generally only board one dog at a time. We don't own a dog and have two cats. There's a 60' x 20' concrete backyard so your pup will have a blast getting its playtime in. Our shade garden will keep your pooch cool outside during the hot months.

Note: We will accept a boarding request for two or more dogs as long as they get along with each other. We've also been paring multiple clients together that are other dog-friendly, such as seniors with pups and rescues with other rescues.

We'll go on sniffari walks every day during your pet's stay at the resort. Many of our streets are wide so your dog will feel safe walking together with us. We provide high-value training treats with water to keep your dog happy at all times.

Our Specialty

We specialize in care for rescue, senior, disabled, and anxious dogs so if your pooch has difficulty interacting with others, you've chosen the ideal professional pet care provider. We will work with their personality and support their challenges in life. If your pup has behavioral issues that you believe are manageable with positive reinforcement, we can provide a welcome and caring environment for it.

Their inner personality will shine at Pooch Patrol Resort.

Positive Reinforcement & Force-Free Dog Training Included with Walks

While walking your dog, we will teach it to learn our training safety commands like: wait, cross, cross gentle, let's go, come on, leave it, and keep walking.

We use positive reinforcement techniques and have successfully trained our clients without the need for chocker chains, pronged collars, or e-collars. These so-called "obedience training" devices will only cause your dog pain and fear while walking and do not correct its behavioral issue. If your dog is anxious, it'll make the problem even worse as it puts pressure on your pup's throat and can cause physical, along with mental pain.

Force-free training techniques combined with high-value treats as rewards are excellent for dogs that are very anxious, fearful or are reactive to other dogs.

Your Dog's Safety Is Our Priority

We will use our Ruffwear front-range safety harness for walking with your dog. It has a very strong and thick metal back clip that gets attached to a 10' long Wilderdog rope leash. Our leashes have heavy-duty locking carabiners so your pooch is always attached to us. Depending on your dog's past training received, we may either use your leash and/or collar - or a combination of ours and yours.

For walking at night, we attach a bright blinking LED light to our harnesses so your pooch will be very visible by other dog walkers as well.

We take your pet's safety very seriously and will be there 100% with it.

Tips

If you want to leave a tip, you will be able to through the client portal app and website. Some of our clients like to give us cash and gifted plants since we're gardeners. We don't expect tips but they're appreciated because we love food carts and expanding our pet supplies.

COVID Precautions

I am fully vaccinated and so is the Pooch Patrol pack who will be helping with your pets. All of us have also received our booster Moderna and Phizer shots.

Summer Months Dog Care

During the warmer months from May to early October, we will schedule walks for your dog when it's 60° to 75° outside. We will aim for about 70° since that's a reasonable temperature for most dogs. For smaller breeds, it'll be 60°to 65°.

Walking your dog when it's warmer than 75° to 80° will cause pain and possible burn injury to its paws because the concrete will be too hot (over 125°).

If your dog is staying overnight at the resort, we'll switch to early morning and/or late evening walks between 7am to 11pm when temperatures are cooler.

On warmer days when it's too hot outside to walk, we'll keep your pooch safely inside. We'll have an AC unit in our living room so it'll be cool for your dog to relax. Otherwise, we'll chill in our basement where it's naturally cool and comfortable 🧡

Chuck and his family watched our dog Reese at their house while we were out of town for a week, and we cannot recommend him enough! Our pup has some dog aggression and separation anxiety, but in our first conversation we felt completely comfortable with Chuck's (and his family's!) dog behavior expertise.

Chuck sends daily updates and photos (and a couple of adorable videos!) and gives a really thoughtful summary of what he and your dog did that day. Reese got to play with a new dog friend, go on walks and hikes, explore new food carts, and meet tons of new human friends. By her first night with Chuck it was clear he really takes care of his clients like his own pets and family. We can't thank him enough for showing Reese so much love. She had an amazing time and will be back soon!
