Poway Pet Care in-home dog boarding

I accept payPalVisa and MasterCard  858-748-9863

Hi everyone, and thank you for visiting our website.
We are regularly booked to capacity, and are therefore unable to take new clients at this time.

I have operated Poway Pet Care for almost 20 years. Before that, I was pet sitting In Issaquah, Washington for 5 years. I board dogs in my own home, where they live as members of the family, not in kennels. I have over 75 regular customers, and consider them my friends as well as clients

RATE: $40 PER DAY. Two dogs from the same family: $70. I charge by the day, not by the night. For example, if you drop off your dog on Thursday night and pick him up on Monday morning, that is three days: Fri-Sat-Sun, not four nights. I do not charge for a full day if you pick your dog up by noon the day he (or she) is going home. 10% discount for boarding 10 days or more, 20% discount for boarding over 20 days.

Please book a free consultation with your dog to look at my setup and determine if your dog will be comfortable here. Dogs MUST be able to live peacefully with other dogs! All vaccines must be up-to-date.

I am licensed, insured and certified in Red Cross Pet & Human First Aid and CPR. Formerly a professional dog trainer, I have volunteered for all-breed dog rescue, fostering over 300 dogs over the years (I no longer foster dogs). I have served as a board member for several humane societies and pet rescue organizations in California and Seattle.


Terry with her Lab, AngusDog Boarding In My Home

I'm at home most of the time with the dogs and try to keep a maximum of six visiting dogs. Dogs are not kenneled. They are treated as members of the family, and come and go indoors and out as they wish during the day. I have a large yard where they can play or rest, and a separate patio area where small or quiet dogs can get away from the rowdy ones. Small dogs are always inside unless I am outside with them.

All dogs sleep indoors, either loose or crated as needed (depending on the dog!). I provide toys and beds, and ask that you provide food. No extra charge for administering medications or dealing with other special needs. Dogs are always separated at feeding time.

Dog Boarding with our Caregiver

Judy and her dog, AnnieYou have a choice of places for your dog to stay on his or her doggie vacation! This home provides a quieter environment for dogs that prefer it, and provides backup when I am fully booked.

Judy Maraventano lives here in Poway and has previously worked for a doggie daycare in Carlsbad. She has worked with Poway Pet Care for six years. She also fills in here at the house for me occasionally when I have to be away for a few hours. Judy lives in Poway with her Golden Retriever, Annie. She is retired and home most of the time. She would like to care for larger (over 30 pounds) dogs that are not fence jumpers, because she has a 4 ft. fence. Contact me if you would like to board your dog with Judy!

I will continue to handle all scheduling and will keep in regular contact with both clients and caregiver. Dog owners will meet with Judy in her home to be sure the arrangement will work for both parties.

Thank you. We look forward to caring for your pets!
