Why Board Your Pet?
What could go wrong staying at home?
Pets may escape searching for their owner. A pet suffering from separation
anxiety could try to find his owner, digging out of a fenced in area, or if
inside, work out its frustration on your home's interior.
Lack of social interaction and boredom from spending almost all day alone
can be very stressful to a pet. How many times have we seen a dog destroy
something when it had nothing better to do? Amazingly, it's usually the most
valued item in your possession. It's as if they took the time to individually
appraise each thing in the house before making their choice.
If your pet were to become sick or injured at home alone he/she may have to
wait for hours, possibly overnight before anyone notices. The first few hours
of an illness or after an injury occurrence is often critical and could mean the
difference between life and death.
Is your dog at least a little fearful during thunderstorms? A pet left alone
during a thunderstorm with no one to comfort them can panic, causing
extreme distress and injury.
Why a boarding facility is better
Great care and expense goes into the design of a boarding facility to make it
virtually escape proof. For additional protection, our perimeter fence cannot
be jumped over or dug under. And this facility is virtually flame proof, using
practically no wood in its construction. The lodge will be monitored 24/7 by
Enough can't be said about social interaction. An idle mind isn't any better
for your pet than for a human.
Just the design of an indoor kennel ensures your pet will be given
one-on-one care several times each day. We will be interacting with the
dogs during the times they're taken outside each day, as well as during meal
and snack times. Cats will be given individual attention daily, too, giving
them time to get out to stretch their legs and play.
Whenever bad weather is predicted we will be in the kennel, even if it's in the
middle of the night, making sure our guests are safe.
You'll have the peace of mind knowing that since we interact with our guests
so much during the day, any problems with illness or an injury will be noticed
right away. Your pet's happiness and well-being is the most important thing
to us. We will be in a position to take immediate action if a problem arises.
And, if you lie on the beach thinking about your pet, we'll only be a phone call
away. You can find out in real time how he or she is doing (during office
hours). And, heck, if you'd like, we'll even take the phone to them so you can
talk to them directly. And if they talk back, you'll have a witness, and you'll be
rich! (Less a small "witness fee")
It's our most heartfelt goal to create a fun, safe and stress-free environment
for your pet; one they'll want to return to time and time again. Your pet
greeting us with a smile on their face will tell us we've succeeded (pets do
smile, you know).
