Fortibus Doggie Retreat
Your dog is our dog. They are welcomed into our home to be pampered and cared for the same way our own babies are spoiled every day. We live on half an acre in the center of Peoria with a six-foot privacy fence for plenty of romping fun.
Hi! Thank you for showing interest in our services!
What makes us so special is our in-home environment. There literally is nothing comparable than your loved one being in a home setting. I can say with confidence that even when a boarding facility is properly built and managed it still has no comparison to being in someone's home. Our pet sitting service is located in our personal home providing a very relaxed and gentle atmosphere for the pups. Your four-legged kids are one of the family when they stay with us.
What to expect... We offer free in-our-home Meet-n-Greets which include you & pup coming over to meet us & our pups. This offers a couple benefits. It helps for when they do officially come over to stay the night because they will have a positive stress-free memory of our family. Also by us meeting them we will know if they will have a fun experience in a home with other canines.
We have five dogs of our own, and love our kiddos very much. My husband works outside the home Monday - Friday, and I work inside the home every day of the week. The visiting pups are crated for mealtime, bedtime, and when we are both away from the home (running errands, appointments, etc). This offers quite time for them along with personal space, keeps our home safe from possible destructive behavior, and of course the dogs safe when unsupervised or enjoying their meal.
Twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, I offer play-dates. This again will begin with the same Meet-n-Greet process described above to ensure the fun & safety of all. Drop off times for Play-Days are prearranged between 6:30a-9:00a, and pick up times are prearranged between 4:00p-6:00p. Rates for Play-Days are $20/day for the first dog, and $15/day for each additional dog.
Rates for overnight stays are $30/night for the first dog, and $20/night for each additional dog. For example: Each night the dog stays there is an "Overnight" charge. If the dog stays during the next day (but not overnight) there is a "Play-Day" charge of $20. A dog's additional day is calculated once noon of the next day is reached.
