In 2005, we set out to create a stress-free boarding environment. As we planned the design of our kennels, the guiding questions were “What would make our dogs happy?” and “What would our dogs need to be safe and healthy while boarding?” With those questions in mind, we built a 2040 sq. ft. facility with 20 indoor/outdoor runs on an acre behind our home. Central heat and air, ventilation fans, and dehumidifiers create a comfortable climate-controlled environment. Retaining walls between each run reduce stress. And for fun and exercise we have an extra large play yard so that everyone can stretch their legs and play with friends. Tummy rubs and ball tosses are given liberally.
