Prices vary based on kennel size. We offer discounted rates for two or more pets staying in the same kennel. We provide medium (3×4 foot), large (4×6 foot) and extra-large (5×11 foot) kennels. Our medium kennels have the extra comfort of heated flooring. All of our kennels are in a single row, so no animal is facing another, and there is no height restriction. You are welcome to bring your dog’s bed and toys or other comforts of home. We will also provide warm blankets and stainless-steel food and water dishes.
