WE BOARD DOGS, CATS, AND SMALL CRITTERS!! WE ALSO OFFER DOGGIE DAYCARE!
We are state mandated to require Rabies vaccination. However, we highly recommend that your pet be vaccinated for the full spectrum of illnesses. We understand some pets will have serious reactions to vaccines, and will accommodate those pets in a quarantined area away from general population.
We recommend DAPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations for our guests. (Ask your vet about the addition of Canine Adenovirus Type 2 to boost immunity to respiratory diseases, such as Canine Cough.) We understand that older pets, and some with certain medical conditions, should not get annual vaccines. We are happy to accept a Titer Report or an Exemption from your vet. These pets will be housed away from general population.
We use a strict protocol for cleaning our facility. Kennels are cleaned and disinfected each day. In spite of our best efforts, your pet could still contract viruses. Knowing this, we highly recommend you to have your pet fully vaccinated and up to date. Kennel cough is a very common virus contracted at dog parks, boarding facilities, and anywhere your dog is in contact with other dogs. It is not just picked up in kennels. It can be caused by stress, immune deficiencies, dust exposure and more. Luckily, a vaccine is available in a nasal, oral and injectable form. As mentioned, there are many organisms that can be involved in kennel cough, and not all can be prevented with vaccines. Unfortunately in many cases, a dog can still contract kennel cough even though they are fully vaccinated. Therefor, a fully vaccinated dog can appear healthy and still be a carrier of the virus. This dog can shed pathogens for up to 3 months. If you dog has been exposed, the symptoms of kennel cough usually begin 3-10 days after exposure. If your dog is exhibiting symptoms of kennel cough, keep them away from other dogs, including daycare and boarding, for at least 14 days. This is generally how long it takes to completely shed the virus from their system. Though kennel cough may be common and unpleasant for your pet, it should ease your mind that the infection can usually be treated in a short time, and in most cases, prevented altogether. CCC requires proof of this vaccination before allowing dogs to board with us in order to help prevent the spread of this disease. Your pet’s health is our number one concern.
We sanitize our kennel daily with an EPA approved sanitizing system that kills viruses and bacteria, deodorizes, and neutralizes mold all in one step. Thorough cleaning regimes and an open, well-ventilated space keeps the surfaces clean, the air fresh, and minimizes our incidence of contagious infections, such as Canine Cough. We clean and sanitize floors, kennel walls, bowls, bedding, etc. daily. Feces, urine, and general grime is cleaned as well to keep a safe and clean space for your pets.
