Boarding for the First Time
How well your pet does during his or her stay at any kennel depends not only upon the kennel environment but also upon his/her attitude towards people, age, past experience with being boarded, and how well he/she responds to being away from a familiar home environment.
The majority of pets adjust readily to the kennel routine. Many enjoy seeing all the other "boarders" and even thrive on the activity and attention. However, first time boarders MAY be lonely or nervous the first day, but with extra attention, they generally adjust and enjoy their stay with us.
• All dogs have free access to indoor/outdoor areas 24 hours a day. Dogs are NEVER locked in crates.
