Welcome to Camp Adventurewiener!

Dachshund Boarding, Training, & “Summer Camp”

My name is Jessica and I’ve been boarding Dachshunds in my home for over 10 years. I’m a Dachshund lover, sitter, trainer, expert, and I’d love to be your pup’s fun home away from home!

I live in a little mountain town about 1.5 hours east of Seattle with my three Dachshunds. I only watch 1-2 dogs at a time so I can give them focused attention, specialize in extended stays, and I’ll travel within the Pacific Northwest for drop off and pick up.

Please view my services page at the link above to view my rates and add-ons that can help take your pup’s stay from great to amazing.

If you don’t have any questions (HERE is how you can contact me if you do), please fill out THIS FORM to request your Dachshund’s stay.

I’m not your average dog sitter – or, technically, dog boarder.

Here are a few of the things that make me different:

  • I only care for 1-2 Dachshunds at a time outside of my own pack.
  • I supervise, engage with, and love on your dog as close to 24-7 as possible.
  • I’ve spent over 100 hours learning about dog body language, dog interactions, behavior, and training.
  • I have over 15 hours of pet first aid training, including handling emergencies when you’re not close to a veterinarian.
  • I have experience caring for IVDD dogs in recovery, including providing home laser treatments, preforming rehab exercises, and I am comfortable expressing bladder/bowels.
  • I specialize in long-term stays. (some clients have stayed with me for up to 6 weeks at a time!)
  • I am the author of the award-winning blog YouDidWhatWithYourWiener.com and have been studying the Dachshund breed full-time for over 10 years.
  • Unless requested otherwise, I will send you a daily update with a photo or video.
  • I observe your dog’s behavior and needs in an unfamiliar setting. At the end of your dog’s stay, you receive a 20-minute minimum consult about your dog’s behavior, additional potential needs, and training tips.
  • I carry daycare and boarding insurance, with expanded coverage for client’s pets, through Pet Sitters Associates (policy #3ED4168).

Each day is a bit different at our house since I work from home and focus on the dog’s needs. Sometimes, the day you had planned is not the way it turns out, but I pride myself in flexibility.

In general, our typical day at home looks like this:
