Our facility is fully heated and air-conditioned and our resident owner management provides the highest quality care available. Our staff and owner have more than 25 years of active experience in breeding, exhibition, boarding, and training.

Please take note that for Holiday reservations, we are now requiring a non-refundable deposit of a two night stay. This deposit will go towards the balance of your bill. Holiday hours can change- please call or check FB for updated hours. 

Reservations are necessary for kennel accommodations; we suggest booking time at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to the date kennel space is needed.

A dog or cat will not be accepted for boarding unless distemper, rabies, and bordetella inoculations are current. A veterinarian certificate for inoculations must be presented at the time of boarding. If owner fails to meet this requirement the dog or cat will not be accepted for boarding and will be considered as a late cancellation. *Please be advised that inoculations should be given two weeks or more prior to your visit*


Checking In and Out

When Checking In your pet, please remember that we are running this kennel as a hotel. You may drop off your pet from the hours of 8:30am - 5:00pm- and just like a hotel- you will be charged for the day of drop off, no matter the time. When Checking out you may pick up from 8:30 am - 1:00pm without being charged for an extra day. 

*Drop-offs and pick-ups not within opening hours are subject to a fee and must be confirmed in advance*



There are 22 individual pens to the kennel; each has an indoor and outdoor run. The inside dimensions of the pens are 4 by 5 feet, and the outside is 5 by 15 feet. We also have 4 double pens for family pets that would like to be boarded together. There is an 8ft chainlink fence, but for those with puppies that love to climb, we also have entirely enclosed pens.



There are also cat kennels. These pens are tiered with shelves in each level. This is so that the cats can play and nap in comfort. The dimension for one level is 3 by 2 1/2 feet and 2 feet tall.

We specialize in any dog or cat, big or small, friendly or hard-to-handle. For more information, or to visit, please contact us.
