A. Yes. Everybody has sleeping quarters inside. The building is temperature controlled.
Q. How often do you take the dogs out?

Q. Can my dog play with other dogs?
A. Sorry but no. We do not combine dogs here for liability purposes. All dogs will be kenneled separately in/out unless they are from the same family.
Q. My dog is not neutered/spayed. Can I board him/her?
A. Yes. It will not be a problem as we do not combine dogs here. If you have two (or more) dogs and need to be separated for that reason, please make sure to let us know when you check them in.
Q. I have two (or more) dogs and want them to share a kennel but they cannot be together when they eat. What should I do?
A. No problem. Please let us know the situation. We will kennel them together but separate them during feeding.
Q. Do you have a long term boarding rate?
A. Yes. For over one month boarding, we offer a long-term discount. The rate can vary based on the length and the number of pets. Please ask for details.
Q. What are your vaccination requirements?
