Nutz For Mutz - Sarasota, FL
We ARE taking dogs at this time and we are five minutes from Siesta Key! You get a “HOME FULL-TIME SITTER” with a “FENCED-IN YARD” here at NUTZ FOR MUTZ Cage-Free Dog Boarding. We only board SMALL breeds under 25 pounds. A Meet ‘N Greet producing current vaccination records is requested before your pet’s first stay, unless you require a last-minute booking or are coming from out-of-town for vacation. Promptness for your appointment is always appreciated.
I am a retired dog mom and a life-long dog owner. While most pet sitters are part-time and still working another job, I am pet sitting full-time. This is my ONLY job. I was pet sitting in Bradenton prior to buying a home in Gulf Gate Estates in South Sarasota FL. I am only 5 minutes from Siesta Key and all the home pics are of my new home.
At Nutz For Mutz, your little one will be treated as family where they are free to romp and play. They will never be caged, and they will never be left alone outside or unsupervised. My adult daughter and I have a small clean single-family home and only sit SMALL breeds. Your baby will never be exposed to a larger breed dog, and we require all the pets we sit to have their shots and vaccinations up-to-date.
Your baby is welcome to sleep in bed with me or in their own bed, whichever they prefer. They are welcome to sit on the couch or in our laps. We also have plenty of pet beds for your baby’s own private space and comfort. Our home is neatly kept with vinyl plank flooring throughout so the occasional potty accident is never an issue. However, we prefer NOT to take on any habitual sprayers, or any pets which are NOT housebroken. This type of behavior is too disruptive to the other doggy boarders and requires constant mopping.
We usually have two doggies for daycare, and we can take up to three little ones during the busy season and holidays as the bookings may overlap. Our home is puppy proofed keeping all power cords tucked away and anything harmful that can be swallowed out of reach. We also have a Chion (half Chihuahua, half Papillon), and a Hava-Jack (half Havanese, half Jack Russell). Both were rescues. Our Chion likes to keep to himself and watch the other pets come and go from the comfort of his doggy bed. He gets along best with smaller breeds who have lower energy levels as high energetic dogs can make him nervous. The Hava-Jack is extremely social and loves to play with any dog who is willing to play with her.
Our home is a safe and care-free zone complete with pet cameras inside and out. We also have motion lights around our home for nightly potty walks. These lights do illuminate our yard. We also take precautions in the event we would encounter a stray or wild animal outside after dark. Your baby’s security is our top priority!
We have a small well-maintained yard that is kept free of debris. We go out to the backyard every two hours for potty breaks and exercise. Our backyard is enclosed with a 4 ft. fence, however, your baby will never be outside unsupervised. We also use a double gate system in case your baby would slip through the first gate. We prefer lower energetic dogs who do not bounce off the walls inside as high energy dogs can make the other boarders nervous.
We have a bike and puppy cart. We can ride through our safe little community if your puppy likes to ride! Your baby will receive a pet massage during their stay. This consists of a very gentle massaging of their muscles and joints, and some light stretching of their legs and paws. This is sure to relax them and relieve their anxiety. We promise to keep your baby safe and happy until you return!
I have health issues so we are “Early To Bed and Early To Rise” in our home. So please do not request any “Late Night” drop-offs or pick-ups. We normally do not take any drop-offs or pick-ups after 7:00 PM in the evening.
