Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding Facility Pet Grooming Facility (Back)

 

Our staff cares and appreciates the individuality of each animal. We understand that they are military family members as well and are affected as much as their human family by deployments, training time and moving. We strive to make each and every stay a pleasant, non-stressful occasion and cater to individual needs of each animal. Our staff members are trained to recognize animal body language and behavior. They are also knowledgeable of veterinary and emergency care. Our staff constantly continues to educate and improve upon our collective animal experiences and firm base of dog knowledge to improve upon our collective animal experiences and firm base of dog knowledge to improve the facility and to assist our clients in their needs.

We offer daycare, overnight boarding, and grooming services and are open to Active Duty, Retirees and Army Civilians.   Our facility contains 24 spacious dog kennels, 4 large, 8 medium and 12 small runs.  They are made of concrete and chain link fencing. Each kennel has a raised bed that keeps the animal off the floor comfortably.  The large kennels have a doggie door that allows access to the outdoor runs.  The runs are cleaned and sanitized daily.  We have a large fenced yard where the dogs are free to play, run and romp several times per day with our staff members and in group play.  Our cattery holds up to 12 cats at a time and we have an enrichment climbing gym available where they can play with toys, sunbathe, scratch and snooze the day away.  We disinfect the bowls, toys, and equipment on a daily basis.

Health

All pets must be in good health and parasite free. All pets will receive an entry level physical exam upon arrival. Animals with fleas will be required to have a flea treatment bath, at the owner’s expense, prior to admission. Owners will also be asked to provide a current record of vaccinations. Signs of existing injury, lameness, or illness will be noted. Owners will certify that their dogs are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require veterinarian certification of health prior to being admitted or re-admitted.

 

Community Play

We offer the opportunity for your dog to participate in our doggie daycare in order to socialize and play with others while staying with us.  The dog must be spayed or neutered if over 7 months old and must not exhibit aggression toward dogs, food, or people.  The dogs will be matched up with a compatible group selected according to age, energy level and size.   There is a one time fee of $10 for a behavioral assessment per pet to participate in doggie daycare and group play.

 

Individual Play

Your pet will go outside in our fenced 6 ft high yard with a staff member to relieve themselves, play ball and receive individual attention on their own away from the other guests.  Animals that are intact, or are not compatible with other dogs will automatically fall into this category.  Families of Dogs (from the same household) are allowed to go out together in this fashion as well.

 

Behavior assessment

If you elect to group or community play, your dog’s behavior will be assessed by our staff in order to maintain a safe group of community play. For Doggie Daycare, we will test your animal to ensure that he is non aggressive towards other dogs, toys, people, or food.  We want to provide an enriching experience for all involved to safely play and exercise together in this program.  

 

Animal Management and Behavior

We do our best to make sure that your pet is comfortable and their needs are met in an appropriate manner.  We enjoy playing and spending time with and caring for your animals.  We do handle our animal guests with the utmost respect, creativity, and understanding of their unique personalities.  However, if your dog shows aggression or is otherwise confrontational to a degree with behavior that is unsafe to handle with normal procedure toward our staff members or volunteers, we reserve the right to use appropriate restraint with muzzles, humane non electronic training collars (gentle leaders), or refuse services to that animal.  

 

Veterinary and Emergency Care

If the pet becomes ill, or the state of the animal’s health requires professional attention, we reserve the right to engage the services of a veterinarian, give medications if ordered, or give other requisite attention to your pet and the expenses thereof shall be paid by the owner in full. This will include a $10 Vet transportation charge.
