Constant Companion, LLC

Pet Care / Pet Boarding

Our home is located on 26 beautiful acres in Southern Lancaster County, PA. I offer a customized canine boarding experience in my home. I also offer boarding and training or pet sitting in your home. The property has exceptionally secure, large outdoor exercise areas. Dogs can exercise (always under supervision) at will in a safe 5 acre fenced area that includes a pond for swimming! Twice a day walks are included in the boarding fee. The working breeds, large breeds, and retrievers seem to benefit most from this type of setting. The indoor boarding space was renovated, offering all the comforts of home.

My management style provides your pet an exceptionally very low stress experience. Additionally, while boarding in my home, your companion will enjoy:

1. Safe environment
2. Twice daily runs (under supervision) in the large exercise area
3. Classical music
4. Frequent breaks throughout the day
5. Constant supervision
6. Individualized attention

I am a lifetime dog owner and dog lover. I currently share my home with my husband, six shelter dogs, 35 chickens, eight ducks, and seven sheep. I have experience with all creatures great and small. I am a certified pharmacy technician and an experienced veterinary technician. I have worked with shelter dogs for 10 years and have experience with a variety of breeds and temperaments.

In June 2017, I completed a Pat Miller Peaceable Paws L1 (Level One) Internship, https://peaceablepaws.com/. I use an evidence based, positive reinforcement training model. I am also a Peaceable Paws Affiliate Member, this allows me to work collaboratively with Pat Miller directly which benefits my clients.  I offer complementary training tips and feedback to all boarding/pet sitting clients. Please do not hesitate to ask!

In order for me to provide a customized, personal hands on boarding experience, I only board two dogs at any given time. For your dog’s protection, they must be up to date on their Core vaccinations (DHPP, bordetella, rabies) and protected with monthly flea/tick treatment. In order for me to comply with PA Dog Law Chapter16, Sub-chapter C, section 16.41, 16.44, and 16.45, you are required to provide a copy (electronic is fine) of your dog’s Rabies Vaccine.

While boarding here, you pet is constantly under supervision. Emergency Veterinary service is available 24-7, should your dog require it. For your dogs safety, Thank You in advance for your compliance with the following:

1. Your pet is required to be on a leash at drop off, pickup, and Meet & Greets
2. Please arrive at your agreed upon time
3. Please use the designated Dog Area if your pet needs to relieve himself
4. I apply standards of care and safety, please do not ask me to make exceptions
