About Boarding

When you are unable to take your pet with you send your pet on an all-inclusive vacation to The Dog House. Your pet will always be treated like our own! And, while with us they will enjoy lots of attention and time outside enjoying the country air. As a pet owner you will love and appreciate the flexibility we offer and our willingness to always accommodate our regular clients.


Our rates are all-inclusive which means you don't have to worry about all the added fees most other kennels charge. Every dog here at The Dog House gets treated the same. All walks and time outside in the fenced in yards is included in your nightly or weekly rate. Dogs are let out first thing in the morning one at a time in the yards to go to the bathroom. When they come back in they are put back in their room and fed. Once every dog has been out and fed then we start rotating the dogs back outside for longer periods of time, either with friends or by themselves. Worried how much it will cost you per day for us to give your dog his thyroid medicine or his arthritis medicine.....well don't because it's FREE. We won't charge you a penny more then our daily rate no matter how high maintenance your beloved friend is. All dogs are let out one last time late in the evening and then come inside to rest on blankets/dog bed you brought from home or blankets that we provide.

To ensure the safety of all pets in our care and the staff, we require all guests to be up to date on their vaccinations. This is to include Distemper-Parvo (DHLPP) and Rabies. While most kennels require Bordetella The Dog House does not. Upon research, we at The Dog House just don't find it necessary to put more vaccines into your pet. Bordetella is a virus and like the flu shot, there is no guarantee that the Bordetella shot you give your dog actually has the strain of kennel cough that is going around. So if the shot offers no guarantee we see no need in requiring the vaccine. If you want to get the vaccine that is fine but please make sure that it is gotten 2 months prior to boarding. If your dog is a senior or your dog is immune-compromised please contact us so we can discuss a vaccination alternative.
