Susan has been in the business of sharing her love for animals all of her life. She grew up in Upstate New York with her two sisters and three brothers. Susan always took over on the family pets, taking care of them and claiming them as hers. She married her husband of twenty eight years who also shares in her love of animals. They both passed this trait down to their three children. Susan gave up her career in the medical field of nine years to pursue her dream of opening her own doggie daycare and boarding facility. It is her dream to spend her days with her own pets as well as with yours when you can't.
So don't leave your dog inside and alone all day. Bring him to "Bellyrubs", where he can socialize with other dogs, play, make new friends, and have a great time!
"Bellyrubs" is a place to bring your dog when you can't take him with you. You can have a peace of mind knowing he is safe and happy. He will be getting lots of attention, love and excercise. We will treat him as part of our family.
Dogs are pack animals.and being alone all day is very hard on them emotionally. Here they not only have companionship with other dogs, but also get lots of comfort and security from humans. Some dogs enjoy the smells, sounds, and sun in the back yard. Others may enjoy snuggling on the couch, or may want to sit on a lap. Some may just want to be by a person's side all day. At our home, they can do all that and more.
Most importantly....when you come home from a long day of work, your dog will be happy. He will be tired from a full day of play and be ready for some quality time with you. No more feeling guilty!
When coming in for an interview, we take it slow. We meet with you and your pet first. We then introduce your pet with the others on neutral ground. We find this works exceptionally well. There will be times that dogs argue by growling. Keep in mind that when put together in a household, all dogs need to evaluate their position in the new "pack". Once this is decided, they calm down. Some become friends and others just go off to do their own thing. We allow all dogs in their own individual ways, to find their place.
At "Bellyrubs" we have a safe enclosed back yard, with sun, shade, toys, and a play pool for those real hot days. There is a lot of room for romping around or for just being lazy. Inside you will find a climate controlled lounge room complete with cots, cushions, and beds.There is a play area to let out excess energy. We play soft music and have lots of snacks.
We also have the convience of a grooming salon on the premises. Your dog can be groomed during his stay with us. This will save you time in your busy schedule of haveing to make a seperate appointment.
Our feline friends are invited to stay at our "Cat Condos" also located at our home
We offer overnight boarding which is an extention of our daycare program. He would be in our daycare during the day and only in a kennel at night.
Don't forget to stop in and check out our gift and supply shop.
We hope you will find that "Bellyrubs" meets all of your expectations and more.
