Each cat (or family) is lodged in a three-tiered cat condominium located in the room adjacent to our front office. Each of our spacious condominiums has two hammocks included for optimal lounging along with various levels to explore. We provide food and water bowls, kitty litter, and litter boxes. We do also allow the cats to have roaming time in the room where they can play and lounge.

A typical day depends on our dogs and their activity level. As dog lovers, we are geared to make sure they get the most of our attention. We get to know each dog, even if they are just here for a weekend getaway. We offer group and individual playtime activities, listed below! Playtime consists of employee supervised participation in free time/run time/ toy time in our large yard outback, solo or with other dogs in daycare, or a nice long leash walk out front. All dogs or dog families get a separate potty area in an outdoor run that they use 4-5 times per day
7am-8am: Every dog gets a potty break before breakfast while the staff sanitizes the entire kennel. Once the cleaning is finished they are brought back in for morning feeding time and morning medications, if needed
8:00am - 9:00am: The dogs rest in their kennels after eating breakfast and this is also when all exit baths are done, so that they can be ready to go home by 12pm that day.
9:00am - 1:00pm: Playtime rotation occurs and staff takes dogs scheduled for group or individual activities out for their scheduled activities of the day. This is also when daycare (group playtime) is done and the dogs take a nap in their indoor kennels once they are tired. The dogs not scheduled for any activities go outside in their individual runs to enjoy the weather and take a potty break, but time spent outside depends on the individual dog as well as the weather that day. Lunch for those scheduled are given around 11am during the rest break between activities.
2:00pm - 4:00pm: We begin rotating all dogs for potty breaks and more playtime for dogs scheduled and dogs boarding when there is free time available. Another daycare happens around this time as well. Time varies depending on the amount of dogs, individual needs, and the weather. After being brought back in the dogs rest in their kennels until dinner time.
4:30pm - 6:00pm: Evening meals are served and evening medications administered. The dogs rest and digest their meals for awhile before final let out for the night.
6:00pm - 7:00pm: We juggle back and forth until the day ends with all dogs getting back out for the last time of the day before being tucked in to their comfy lodgings for the night. All dogs sleep inside a climate controlled kennel. There is a staff member on-site that can comes back out to check on the dogs after closing as needed to make sure all is well for the night. We come back in the morning and it all starts again!
