Most of our guests are boarded in indoor/outdoor runs. The inside section is either 4×4 or 4×6. The 4×4 goes out to a 4×10 concrete run and the 4×6 goes out to a 4×12 concrete run. The inside portion has a removable floor covering the concrete so the dogs are not lying on concrete and we provide blankets. The inside portion also has ceramic tile walls. The outside portion is concrete and is completely covered with a trussed roof. There are 6 ft. walls between each run (indoor and out) so the dog is never nose to nose with another dog. The dogs have access to their outdoor run 24/7 unless it’s too cold, in which case, we close the dog doors at night and turn on the heat. The dogs go out several times a day (weather permitting) to a large 20×20 gravel play yard. They are not put out with other dogs unless the dogs are in the same family or are boarding together. While we do not air condition the kennel building, we have a system that exchanges the air 3 times/minute. This creates a wonderful, constant airflow during the summer.
If you prefer, we have 2 indoor suites…The Den (for up to 2 dogs) and The Garden Room (for up to 3 dogs). Special needs dogs (diabetic/epileptic, etc.) are welcome. Please call to discuss management of needs and pricing.
We recommend that you provide your dog’s regular diet but we have a high quality food that we can provide at an extra charge. In addition, you can purchase individual walks, individual play time, stuffed Kongs and beef bones. With regard to health requirements, we require documentation of current vaccines (Rabies/Distemper-Parvo Complex and Kennel Cough <Bordatella>) and dogs need to be on a flea preventative.
Cats are housed separately from the dogs (on the 2nd floor of the main building) in order to provide a peaceful boarding experience. We recommend that you provide your cat’s regular diet but we have a high quality food that we can provide at an extra charge. We provide litter and litter boxes. Feline guests are required to have current Rabies, FELV and FVRCP.
We would love to have you come by to tour our facility. You don’t need an appointment. Just come by during our regular hours Monday -Saturday (8:30-11:30 and 1:30-5:30). We do not give tours on Sunday but we are open from 4:30-6:00 PM for pick-ups/drop-offs.
The owner, Judy has owned and bred competition show, obedience and field dogs. She is very comfortable caring for dogs as she has done so for 30-40 years. In addition, Judy and her husband both live on the property so someone is pretty nearly always close at hand.
Our kennel manager, Hannah, is dedicated to the happiness, well-being and care of our guests.
