Roseanne Conrad will move AlleyRatz Lit'l Dog Daycare to her home in Martinsburg from Hollidaysburg. The four-year-old business specializes in small dog daycare, overnight lodging, grooming and training. The home-based business is insured and is licensed by the USDA.

AlleyRatz Lit'l Dog Daycare, a small dog service business, will open on Tuesday, Feb. 19, in Martinsburg.

The location will be at 207 Woodlawn Ave.

The four-year-old business, previously operating in Hollidaysburg, specializes in small dog daycare, overnight lodging, grooming and training. The home-based business is insured and is licensed by the USDA.

According to owner, Roseanne Conrad,

"I have had dogs my entire life and have worked professionally with them for over 43 years," Roseanne Conrad, owner, said. I am looking forward to bringing my experience, passion and knowledge of dogs to dog owners in the Cove area."

Conrad has trained and bred show dogs since 1976, has had several champions and is an AKC Certified CGC evaluator. She is also the visionary behind the Blair County Dog Park and serves as its corresponding secretary and events planner. She is a contributing writer for Park & Recreation Business magazine and NRPA Parks And Recreation magazine.

Conrad plans to offer a "homey" environment for the dogs under her care. She will take no more than four dogs at any given time in an effort to provide less stress for the dogs and more one-on-one care.

Conrad said dogs must be social, spayed/neutered, housebroken, crate-trained, non-barkers, under 30 pounds, up-to-date on required vaccinations and free of internal and external parasites.

The business will also offer grooming services for dogs under 30 pounds. Its popular Pawsitive Pups Puppy Preschool will continue with classes to be held at the Newry Lions Club Park (located behind Leighty's Farm Market). The first class will begin on Tuesday, March 5. Classes for adult dogs will resume in the future.

Future plans for the business include cat lodging (beginning late spring) in a separate building, with space available for up to eight communal cats and private condos for non-communal cats. There will be an outdoor enclosed "catio" for cats to enjoy sunning on nice days. A small pet boutique is also planned. The boutique will carry unique, hand-crafted and hard-to-find pet-themed items.
