We have set up a few pools in the dogs outside play area to play in and get refreshed! The bushes surrounding the dog kennel are in full bloom and offering much needed shade on the hot afternoons. We are loving life here, so make your summertime reservations now!!

Beating the odds with high anxiety dogs during boarding

Meet Daisy a very nice German Shepherd who has some high anxiety during kennel visits. When she first came it was hard to get close to her at all, lots of growling, cowering in her cage, followed by attacking the door where I stood. We slowly got Daisy comfortable with us. By using peanut butter, special dog treats her owners provided, and a nice calm smooth voice she finally stopped the growling. Then we proceeded to open her room door and lay down flat and lay our hands out to smell, she finally sniffed our hands. We finally got her outside by opening her room door and not making eye contact, just a calm chant of her name and she followed us outside. A few days of that routine, and now we got her rubbing on us for love and getting leashed for walks. We try really hard here to make these dogs feel comfortable with us. These are our family members not just a dog, so we work with all breeds of dogs to try to get them comfortable in a kenneling situation. Daisy is a wonderful dog, just scared. We hope all families with these types of dogs, give us a try, we would love to help out!!20160505_081613
