While there are many options of how to care for your pets while you are away, boarding at our facility is probably the safest option since well-designed kennels are safe and secure. We are also able to provide on-site medical attention if nessesary.
We welcome you to come in and tour our boarding facilities.
Please call our office early to make a reservationspace can be limited especially on weekends and holidays.
Many dogs are very happy when they stay in kennels and even look forward to visiting. Feel free to setup a time you can visit our facility beforehand to verify it meets your expectations.
Despite the fears of owners, most dogs settle into boarding life very quickly.
It is always worthwhile to board your pet for a short period such as a weekend or a few days to see how they do before leaving them for a prolonged time. One or two short stays at a kennel will help your pet adjust to being without you and get used to the boarding facility and staff.
When you pick up your pet, evaluate his or her general condition. This will give you an indication of the standard of care your pet received. Be sure to ask our kennel staff about your pet's behavior and appetite. Many pets that are unaccustomed to boarding will have a decreased appetite or drink less water during their stay. This is normal but frequent, short visits will help reduce your pet's anxieties.
All pets are required to be current on their vaccinations. Rabies, canine distemper and upper respiratory ("kennel cough") vaccines are universally required. We will accept written proof of vaccination from a licensed veterinarian if we did not administer them.
You should fully discuss any special medical problems or dietary requirements with our office. Ensure that you leave written authorization for emergency veterinary care, along with the contact information.
