When your pet is boarding with us and is not boarding in the homestye area (pets 12lbs and under) you have the option of selecting either the PLAY TIME OPTION or THE WALK OPTION for your pet. – $6.00 PER TIME
The PLAY TIME OPTION is 20-30 mins in the play yard (fenced area between kennel and barn) which allows us to play fetch, frisbe, tug of war or just allow your pet to smell the grass and gaze at the horses.
A staff member is there with your pet at all times to make sure they are not missing human contact and most times the conversations are pretty lively and sometimes quite vocal!
The walk when completed is just under a mile and includes our gravel roadway, the path along the weeping willows, the poplar path and back again. The horses like to talk to several of the pets so sometimes we have to stop to say hello and give an apple or carrot.
Sometimes this walk can take up to 30 minutes but it definitely depends on the pet’s pace and energy level.
Either way the walk is at the pets pace with lots of talking and repeating your pet’s name so they are aware we appreciate the time they are allowing us to share with them.
Naturally this option has a fee and unfortunately can only be done up to twice a day. At no time do we allow any of the pets in our care to spend time with other boarding pets unless they reside in the same home. Please remember the kennel atmosphere is totally different than their home and pets do not react the same here as they do at home no matter their age or breed.
Please do not feel obligated to request this option since our staff are on site all day to make sure all messes are cleaned up immediately and that each kennel is clean and tidy.
Treats are given by staff through out the day so please inform us if this is not acceptable to you or your pet while boarding.
