Lots of people will be getting puppies for Christmas. Puppies make a great present IF you choose the right puppy for your lifestyle and family. Please research thoroughly and ask yourself some basic questions:
1. What will your life be like in five or even 10 years?
2. How many dogs have you owned on your own (not with your parents)?
3. How much time can you dedicate to your pet each day?
4. Can you afford to own an animal?
Remember, there are expected and unexpected vet care costs, food, training, pet sitting and/or boarding, etc. costs involved.
5. If you already have a pet, is that animal likely to accept a new housemate?
6. What do you realistically expect from a new dog and what do you hope to get out of the relationship?
7. Do you have the time and resources needed for proper training?
8. How much household destruction can you tolerate and are you willing to put in the time to start teaching the dog immediately what is his/hers to chew on and what is yours? Do you know how to do that?
9. Is everyone in the household on board with getting a pet?
10. Do you have small children?
No dog, no matter the breed, comes ready to live with children (especially small ones). If you have children, you must first teach them the rules of safe pet conduct: No teasing, pulling, pushing or climbing on animals,” Arden says. You’ll also need to spend ample time meeting different animals, so you can observe tolerance levels, responsiveness to training and the ability to bounce back from jarring incidents. Ask yourself: “Can I do this in a way that my children will understand and be able to follow?”

Going on a trip? Save a little $!
See Spot Sit is now offering boarding for your furry family members. Going on Vacation? Going on a business trip? Let us keep your pooch in our home! We keep staff on site 24/7 so that som
one will be there to give your dog everything they need and more! our goal is to give you the peace of mind that comes with leaving your beloved pet with a good friend or trusted family member.
If you already have a trip planned or you want to plan a trip, pre-pay and get 15% off for boarding or board and train. Board and train means obedience and/or help rehabilitating a behavior that you aren’t crazy about! We can lay the foundation for a new behavior and help you learn some new behaviors too!
My belief is that our behavior and actions greatly affect the behavior and actions of our dogs! This belief is well founded and proven out by lots of studies done by people more educated and lots smarter than me! Luckily, we can reap the benefits of those studies! I have devoted my life to YOUR dogs and mine and learning what makes them “tick” (pardon the pun).
Let us welcome your dog into our family while you are gone and save some money by pre-paying for services!

We do small play group socialization and group dogs together not just by size but by social skills and level of comfort. Never more than 4-5 dogs per human. Here, we treat the dogs as part of the family and I live on premises. We also offer some training services while boarding if needed. They won’t be in the kennel or crate (your preference) except for sleeping at night and rest time during the day. Dogs MUST have some down time during the day. They naturally will choose to rest or nap several times during a day. If they do not get that, they can become stressed and overwrought, leading to stress and anxiety which can cause them to be “grumpy” and reactive.
At night, some of them will sleep on a bed in the “doggy sleep room” without being crated or kenneled if that is what they are accustomed to and they sleep through the night.
I want people to feel that they are leaving their dog or dogs with a trusted friend or family. This work is my passion and I love every dog who comes through my path. I have worked with over 1800 dogs for training and/or behavior rehabilitation.
Boarding, with socialization is $45 a night. Each additional dog is $30 per night.
If a dog has aggression issues, we will assess them first and depending on the level of aggression, the price may be different. Severely aggressive dogs will be required to receive behavior modification if they are to be boarded here so Board and Train prices will apply. We hope that if a dog has aggression issues, their human guardian will choose to allow us to help them while they are here. That can always be discussed at the time of intake.
All shot records are required of course and food needs to be provided, especially if they are on a special brand or type.
Our “stock food” is 4-Health from Tractor supply and is a very high quality food. We use the grain free choices.
