Dog Daycare,Boarding
Steffies House Dog Grooming Dogs Small Up To 75lbs

Competitive Prices For this Homestyle Boarding and Daycare, I charge $36 for 24 hours of stay,,that breaks down to $1.50 per hour, and that's what I charge for daycare as well, with a minimum of $10.
Any extended stays of 5 days or over will get 10% off the boarding.
That would be 1 dog, 5 days =$180, minus $18, = $162. You may choose to also have me groom your dog so he/she can be fresh for your Grand Reunion, the price would be the regular price.
I also give 10% off for multiples, but each dog is counted,,so 2x $1.5=$3 per hour for 2 dogs, 3 dogs would be $4.5 per hour, but in both cases you will get 10% off. If you have multiples that will be staying 5 days or longer, instead of taking $ off for extended stay, I give your dogs free baths just before you pick them up so they will be lovely and fresh for you to cuddle up and play with (heres the math for 2: 2x180=360, with 2 free baths( about $50 savings/value).
Pets that have Special Needs. $2 extra charge per day per procedure, ie: pills/meds.

All Overnighting dog Boarders are given the opportunity to share Steffies Queen Size bed: dogs are pack animals, and love Steffies Sleepovers! Except in the Summer time some may opt to sleep on the cool floor for a while, most all end up on the bed, or, if shy they may opt for their own bed which each owner or Steffie can provide. Steffie has 3 small dogs, there's room for another 2-3 over nighters on the bed, or more if they go on their own beds and/or couch. (yes, they are allowed up on the couch,,there are carpeted stairs up to it!

Your Dog:
Needs to be up to date on shots, and not have fleas or ear mites, nor be exhibiting any signs of illness, such as drippy nose, coughing, drooling, etc.
Should be able to get along well with small dogs, and not be excessively interested in chasing cats or squirrels, bikes, skateboards, cars, & the like. I have 3 cats but they usually hang out in the pottery shop, I keep their nails clipped, and, like my dogs, they are up to date on shots. Also, no climbing dogs,,some dogs, like Jack Russles, climb fences like a ladder,,they would'nt be safe here,,and, for that matter, too, No extreme diggers or Runners, Houdini's, Escape Artists, either.
The fence is 3' high per code in the front, a little higher on the sides. Construction grade green pvc fence mesh keeps normal good dogs in.
If you have a rescue dog that is prone to running away, please do not bring him/her to Steffie's House, because while I do exercise Ordinary Care to prevent harm, (due diligence) this is not a floor to ceiling kenneling system that uses cement and chain-link caging or fencing.
 
The entire dog run area on the property is fenced this way. Your dog will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere of having full run of the house and yard, and will remain at my side as well as with my own dogs, as I go about my chores, or grooming, or pottery out in the back shed. Dogs that are too large to fit through the small dog door are let out on a regular and frequent basis, even given midnight and early morning relief breaks. Everything is Climate Controlled and comfortable and reasonably clean, I use Vinegar and Water to mop, and potty messes are cleaned up immediately using natural enzymes, and H2O2-oxyclean/hydrogen peroxide. An indoor air-filter is used at all times to keep allergens down.  Outside there is an area with bare ground and plants to explore, but most of the area is paved, and kept clean with a hose and natural odor eliminating enzymes. All bedding is washed and kept Dust Mite Free as much as possible, laundering 2 loads of something every day! I like to make sure all my pets are Pest Free.
 
There are 3 cats, but all are pretty good with dogs. I have a House Chicken, her name is Suri the Surama, she is a tiny little hen, and can't be cooped with the 2 Polish hens-Kate and Pippa-they have glorious big fancy hats! So they don't see her half the time, but when they do, sometimes they go after her, so I have to keep her close to me when they are out and about. Dog's that are new to seeing and being around chickens usually get the idea not to mess with them pretty fast, chickens have good self defense, and a quick 'Leave It' ususally works,,if not, I keep the chickens penned up and they are just as happy that way as not,,so all's good!
 
Also, your dog should Be House Broken, and be able to 'hold their water'~ within reason: ie: no excessive 'Marking' dogs. I will take puppies as long as you provide Wee Wee Pads for overnighting.

If you like, you may arrange for me to groom them so they are pretty and sweet smelling with smooth nails and minty breath for you when you pick them up.

There is a $24 on up extra charge for bathing/grooming.

**Food is love,, although I am tempted still to treat your dog with bits of my chicken dinner, I have learned not to, and now pick up my own dogs food so your dog won't have access to anything but it's regular food, to avoid tummy upset, unless you say it's OK.

I have available space now, for your Holiday Vacations, Please call now! Book In Advance is a good idea, all local boarding facilities fill up fast during this time of year.
