It all depends on the weather.  When it is nice outside, we like to leave the doggy doors open which lead out into the outside run.  This gives your dog the freedom to go in and out all day long.  However, when it is too cold, hot or rainy, we have 4-5 set let out periods throughout the day for potty breaks.

Of course!  All kennels are heated and air conditioned and kept nice and comfortable even on the hottest and coldest days of the year!
All dogs stay in our indoor/outdoor accommodations.  The inside area is 5’x5′ and the outside patio area is 5’x8′.
It just depends on your combination of dogs.  Most of the time, yes, your dogs can share the same run.  Typically, 2 large, 3 medium or up to 4 small dogs can share one run.  There are obviously other factors that play into it and we can give our professional opinion for your specific situation and combination of pets.

Yes, we can administer most medication without any issue or additional cost.  Most common medications we see and administer are Rimadyl, Apoquel, Thyroxine, Benadryl, Phenobarbitol, Prednisone, Antibiotics, Fluoxetine and Tramadol.  This is not a comprehensive list, but gives you an idea of what is commonly administered on a daily basis at The Kennel.

If you are a regular client and your dog develops Diabetes, we can typically continue caring for your pet and administer the required insulin injections during their stays with us.  We do not accept diabetic cats at all or diabetic dogs whom we are unfamiliar with.  In these cases, we recommend you contact your vet to see if they can provide the necessary care.
