OUR DAILY SCHEDULE

OUR DAILY SCHEDULE

At 7:30 we let the dogs out to go to the bathroom, they get an hour of free time in the play areas where they get to run and play either with a buddy they made or we play with them. The dogs that need to be separated get play time and personal attention also. If your pet needs walked we can also provide that service. During that time the dogs that need to be fed in the morning, eat during this time. If weather permits the dogs can stay out in the runs for the day, unless it is uncomfortable for certain dogs. Some dogs do like their air conditioning. Between 11:00 and 12:00 pets get free run and play again and if any of their necessities need to be met they get them during this time. Between 12:00 and 4:00 its nap time for the pets, this gives them some quiet time to relax. Between 4:00 and 6:00 they get play time, feeding time, and personal attention. Then it’s time for bed, we put the dogs to bed at around 6:30 the dogs do adjust to the schedule.

PET BELONGINGS AND COMFORT:

PET BELONGINGS AND COMFORT:

Owners you may bring your own pets food since some pets have sensitive stomachs or are on special diets. Blankets and beds are provided by the kennel. Toys and treats are also provided, but pets enjoy something from home. For first time visitors we do require your pet in the morning so we can have most of the day to make them comfortable and feel safe, it also helps for owners to bring something from home. We recommend favorite toys, or something with your scent on it, like an old pair of socks or t-shirt you might not get back. The kennel is not responsible for lost or destroyed items so please be careful what you bring.
