Our schedules are not rigid - it sometimes depends on the mix of dogs, but it generally follows this template:
6:30 am - Rise and shine! Everybody up and out into the Common Area yards for early morning potty and play
7:15 - Yum yum! Breakfast is served. Meds distribution.
7:30-9:30 - Boarders are settled in their kennels to digest while daycare/new boarder dogs arrive. Some boarding dogs are picked up now as well. Some boarders enjoy stuffed kongs or chews during this time.
9:30- 11:45 - Yard time for everyone. Boarders and daycare alike are rotated in small groups or buddied up into the for some serious play and outdoor time. We have 4 large (2+ acres in total) 6’ chain link fenced play yards with climbing boulders, natural footing, trees, grass, etc. and ten+ fenced acres of field and pond. There is frequently some dirt involved! Those not in yard rotation are in indoor/outdoor runs with a buddy or doing Custom Care Trail Walks, NaturePark or One on One activities.
12:30 - 4:00 - Naps are taken in rotation. Outdoor play rotations resume, Custom Care Trail Walks, NaturePark and One on One activities, and any extras happen. On Thursday and Friday our groomer bathes, brushes and trims those that have scheduled grooms.
3:30 - Yum yum! Dinner time for boarders. Meds distribution. Boarders and daycare dogs are prepared for pickup.
4:00-6:00 - Boarders are settled in their kennels to digest/rest while pickup/drop off goes on. Some boarders enjoy stuffed kongs or chews during this time.
6:00- 8:00 - Evening outdoor potty and play time in the Common Areas for boarders only
8:00 - 8:30 - BedTime. Dogs are settled in their runs (some with buddies, if they prefer company), NPR on, cameras on and lights out.
"Alison and her staff provided exceptional care to not only my dog but also to me..." A. B.
"The best. Alison and her staff are terrific. My dog, Rem, hadn't spent any time boarded before we got here and he loved it there. I don't know how the dogs are all so calm, but they are. I'm lucky this is near by me. " Betsy N.
"We miss him, but we never worry about him when he's there. Wonderfully competent crew. Beautiful surroundings." Bruce K.
