The Happiest Dog Ever!

We feature an indoor play area with artificial grass that includes toys galore,  rocks to jump on and over, and a pool to take a dip. When you are away, your pet will have the luxury of being in a climate controlled facility. When it’s hot outside, we stay cool and when it’s cold and wintry outside, we stay warm. We have heated floors and an interior exercise area. We are unlike any other facility in the area when it comes to pure luxury for your pet. If the electricity goes out in a storm we are safe and sound with a backup generator to keep us all comfortable for as long as necessary.



While your dog is here, he will enjoy deluxe beds from Pet Cots for lounging and sleeping with optional fleece covers.  We feature NutriSource pet foods for the very best available nutrition. Each pet will receive turn down service with a bedtime snack before the lights are lowered for relaxation time at night. We also offer personal televisions in each suite for those pets who can’t bear to miss their favorite shows.

Our cattery is state of the art with private potty areas for additional cleanliness and safety. We feature a separate cat boarding area for minimal contact with the canine population for decreased stress, yet they are located where they can see all the activity of the day and interact with the staff regularly.
