The inspiration behind the doggy-sitting business For The Love of Dogs lies, simply, in its name. Its owners always owned and cared for dogs, discussing the shortcomings or successes of other pet-care services. Finally, they decided to do dog-sitting right, so they got their own facility and haven’t stopped having friends over to play since.
The owners outfit their play space with rubber floors—easy on joints young and old—and provide nontoxic toys for the pups to chew on. They watch over canines in owners’ stead from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, even sitting from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. They reward well-mannered visitors with treats from The Barkery, a line of dog treats made from organic ingredients. Each visit includes grooming—a service that the staff offers separately—along with training services and professional waste removal for yards and doghouses due to be rented out to misbehaving spouses.
