All Overnight Boarders are given the opportunity to share Steffies Queen Size bed, dogs are pack animals, and love Steffies
Sleepovers, Cuddling is encouraged! 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 can provide. Steffie has 3 small dogs, there's
room for another 2 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!
Needs to be up to date on shots, and not have fleas or ear mites, nor
be exhibiting any signs of illness, such as 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, extreme diggers/escape artists, either.
** I did just improve my front gate, which no longer swings but slides sideways to open,,thanks to a little squirt-through
Yorkie,,it's now called "Misha's Gate"..in case you are wondering,,I made up the plans, how-to's, and did it all myself!,,I
still need to paint it though,,
All Dogs Should Be House Broken, and be able to 'hold their water'~ within reason:
ie: no 'Marking' dogs.
