Boarding

Standard boarding area

Whether you are planning a vacation or traveling for business, deciding who will care for your pet can be a difficult decision.  Our goal is to provide your pet with a loving, safe, and clean environment while here with us.  All of our boarding facilities are located indoors and are climate controlled.  Our boarding runs are 3? X 6? and are texture coated and padded for comfort.  Each pet receives a sleeping pad and a constant supply of fresh water.  We provide Science Diet Maintenance exclusively to our visiting pets; it costs us a bit more but is well worth it.  If you prefer, you can bring your own food and we will feed it according to your instructions.  Each morning a kennel attendant will accompany your dog out into a fenced walking area for a little outside playtime after which it will be returned to a freshly cleaned kennel.  Boarders go back outside for more play time in the late afternoon.  If your four-legged friend spends seven or more nights with us, we will provide a complimentary bath and nail trim from our groomer. Be sure to check out the section on this website devoted to our kennel staff; they are selected for their competence and love of animals.

For the safety of your pet and our staff, we require that all boarding pets be up to date on required vaccines.  We make no exceptions since this is a matter of safety. Dogs must have had a DHLPP within the past twelve  months or have proof of a positive titer, a Bordetella (kennel cough) within the past 6 months and a current Rabies Vaccine. 

You can verify your pet’s status by providing a current signed vaccine certificate from any administering veterinarian.  If verification is not possible, we can, upon request, administer the required vaccines at our usual fees.  We seldom encounter any problems in this regard since a lot of our boarders are repeat customers. But if you are new to our boarding program, it would be wise to check with our helpful staff long in advance of your pet’s reservation.  All boarding guests receive a complimentary wellness screening.

 VIP Canine Condos

Canine VIP Boarding

For those of you whose dogs don’t know they are dogs, we offer VIP boarding.  Your secret is safe with us and we will spoil your friend in one of our theme painted suites.  These suites are 6? X 6? glass fronted enclosures with a view of the lobby.  Each suite has been custom painted with a different theme.  A raised and padded bed is provided in each suite as well as raised food and water dishes.  These pampered pets are taken outside to play for 15 minutes each morning, noon, and early evening for a total of 45 minutes daily.  Complimentary baths and nail trims are provided for all VIPs staying more than three nights. 

Regarding vaccines, please read the section above under Boarding; our rules for VIP dogs are the same as listed there.  All VIP boarding guests will receive a complimentary wellness screening.

Kitty Condos 

Kitty Condo

Our Kitty Condos are located upstairs and overlook the lobby.  Our feline guests seem to enjoy hiding among the plants where they can watch the birds also housed upstairs.  Each condo has a raised perch for better views and a secluded “privy” area.  We provide each cat with fresh bedding, litter box and water.  We feed Science Diet Feline Maintenance exclusively.  But, if you prefer, bring your own food and we will feed your feline friend according to your instructions.  Cats staying with us for seven or more nights will also receive a complimentary bath and nail trim by our groomer. 

For the safety of our guests and our staff, vaccines are required on all boarding pets. Cats must have had a FVRCPC and Felv within the past twelve months or have proof of a positive titre, and a current Rabies Vaccine.  We accept, for verification purposes,  current signed vaccine certificates from any administering veterinarian.  If verification is not possible, we can, upon request, administer the required vaccines at our usual fees.  We seldom encounter any problems in this regard since a lot of our boarders are repeat customers. But if you are new to our boarding program, it would be wise to check with our helpful staff long in advance of your pet’s reservation.  All boarding guests receive a complimentary wellness screening.
