Your Dog is special : Each guest in our home is given his/her own open private sleeping/eating quarters. Each sleeping/eating area is secure, private but open (no cages) and is roomy enough (4.5′ X 4.5′) for your dogs own crate/bedding toys, blankets, etc.

Twilight time is our wind down time and begins at 9:00 p.m. nightly and lasts for one hour. During the one hour twilight time pups are retired to the own private sleeping quarters and night lights remain on for one hour to allow the pups to wind down while playing with toys, chewing a bone, gazing around at other dogs or just relaxing. Lights out at 10:00 p.m. Adhering to a nightly routine helps the dogs adjust quicker to their new environment as they learn what to expect.

Daily activities: Dogs are allowed ample play/social time indoors and enjoy supervised outdoor potty/playtime in my level fenced back yard.

“Meet and Greet” – Prior to your first stay with us a brief visit to our home is required with you and your dog to be sure Pinch’s Place is a good fit for your needs.  Meet and Greets are done by appointment.

Pup owners to supply their own food and are encouraged to bring anything and everything they feel will make their dogs stay more comfortable and enjoyable.
