Boarding

Bed & Biscuit at your service

Hey Tucson, do you stress out who will take care of your greyhound or older dog when you go on vacation or away for work? Stress no more. A Tucson Tail specializes in providing tender loving care for your dog while you’re gone.

Wanted…

Because I live with and am loved by two senior greyhounds, I request that your dog weigh a minimum of 30 pounds and be at least 3 years old. Older, more calmer dogs who are socialized and get along with other dogs work better here.  If your dog likes lots of playtime with other dogs, then A Tucson Tail in-home dog boarding is probably not the right match. We’re a bunch of proud couch potatoes.

Let Tucson Tail be your greyhound or older dog’s home away from home: Your dog is walked once or twice a day depending on the season and per your request. There is a 5-foot walled-in dirt yard for sniffing and running. Mi casa is your dog’s casa with cushy dog beds, occasional made-in-the-USA treats and lots of affection.

For new clients, a meet-and-greet in my Central Tucson home is required before accepting a reservation.

Safety First

–Your dog must be up to date on vaccinations (rabies, distemper combo, bordetella); proof is required.

–Your dog must be altered.

–On the recommendation of my veterinarian, my greyhounds have been vaccinated for Leptospirosis. It’s optional for your dog but you may want to ask your vet.

–Your dog must be free of ticks and fleas; please consider applying a flea & tick preventative a few days before arrival.

–Your dog should be registered and wearing his county license tag. He should be wearing a tag collar which also includes your  contact info.

Rover.com

A Tucson Tail currently is under the Rover.com shingle. Dogvacay.com merged with Rover.com.  Even though Rover takes a percentage of my earnings, one of the advantages of being with Rover is they provide premium insurance which is important in case an emergency would occur. Peace of mind for you and for me.
