Dog Boarding in Keswick
Each dog, or dogs from the same family, are housed in their own individual “Pet Cottage”. The cottages are comfortably heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer (new for 2013), with plenty of windows for natural lighting and ventilation. Each cottage has a pet door which accesses the dog’s fully fenced and covered outdoor patio.
The Pet Cottages are tiled inside, ensuring a clean environment for your dog, and are fully disinfected after use. To make your dog feel at home, outdoor speakers play music 24 hours a day and each cottage is equipped with a night light. Your pet is exercised four times per day in fenced yards, under the supervision of kennel staff, for approximately 20 minutes each time (weather permitting).
Please note that for the safety of your dog and other boarding dogs, it is not our policy to socialize pets that do not know each other. Although both dogs may be friendly, there is always the potential for a dog fight for various reasons we have no way of predicting. For example, even the most social dogs may want to dominate other social dogs, have misplaced aggression, and various other issues we are not aware of.
Since we believe your dog feels more comfortable with a diet he is familiar with, please provide enough food and medication (if required) for the duration of your dog’s stay with us. Although we provide washable mats for your dog, we encourage you to bring along a bed or blanket from home, as well as any favourite toys. We have a supply of treats, but you may provide your own. We also have raised pet beds available for your pet’s use in various sizes.
All dogs admitted to our facility must be current with their annual vaccinations prior to boarding. We do not accept aggressive dogs, or those with severe health problems or communicable diseases. Please ensure your dog is free of fleas and parasites prior to boarding. For the required inoculations, please click on “Vaccination Requirements“.
