Boarding Information

Dogs

  • All indoor kennels are heated and air conditioned. We believe in fresh air for our K9 friends and offer as much outside time as possible. We take special consideration for extreme temperatures and your pet's size, breed and coat type.
  • All of our K9 guests enjoy outside time 3 to 4 times per day in their own individual, attached and covered 7 x 15 foot run.
  • While our guest is enjoying the outdoors and fresh air, their indoor pen is tidied; vaccumed; and cleaned; bedding is checked; and fresh water is given (fresh water is given outside as well between the months of March until October.)
  • We offer a separate section for small breed dogs.
  • All of our inside pens are solid walls with a gate front, for added privacy while eating and sleeping.
  • We offer double sized pens for our large breed K9 customers or 2/3 pets from the same family to stay together.
  • We encourage our K9 owners to bring things from home: bed/blankets, food, and any treats. (There is an additional charge for food if you do not bring your own.)
  • The K9 guest pens are fully sterilized between pets visits.

A Glen Saxon Kennels - Cattery

Puppies / Kittens

We do take puppies and kittens in for boarding. Boarding your puppy or kitten at a young age is very good for them. You will have your pet for, hopefully, over 12 years, and unless you never plan to travel, it is important to get your pet accustomed to being away from you. Young animals are very resiliant and settle in very quickly.

Every pet owner should take this into consideration, as part of socializing their pet, it is way less stressful on the dog or cat if they are used to being boarded from a young age.

Other Small Animals

We also provide care for small pets, birds, bunnies etc. (See Rates page for prices and packages.)

Food

We encourage all pet owners to bring their own food for their animal's stay. As well your own scoop — we use a standard measuring cup.

We have a fridge and freezer to accommodate any special diet requirements.

If you do not bring your own pet's food, there is an additional charge. (See Rates page for prices.)

You are welcome to bring treats from home that your pet is used to, we love to give treats!

We offer a select few Healthy Raw Treats—large/small beef knuckle bones, large smoked pig ears, pumpkin puree on a biscuit, and for our Kittie customers: one tablespoon of tuna or salmon.(Call for prices.)

Bedding and Bowls

We encourage pet owners to bring bed/blanket from home. The scent from home will help your pet settle into our environment. (We always have extra if you forget.)

We have many stainless steel bowls and buckets. However, if you think your pet wants his/her own, feel free to bring them as well.

Leashes/Toys

We do all our playtimes/walks on our own flexi-retractable leash and chain collar. We have had nylon collars break! You are welcome to bring your gentle leader from home for playtimes if you wish.

You are also welcome to bring toys from home; however, we are not responsible for them if they get lost.

All dogs must be on a leash on kennel property. We would be glad to put your name on your kitty carrier and store it for you until you return.

Grooming

We provide professional bathing, nail clipping, and full grooming for your pet while they stay. You may also schedule an appointment just for the day. (See Rates page for prices.)

Playtime

Playtime is an excellent way to make your pets feel at home faster.

Bring along your pets favourite toy and we will play with them: frisbee, ball, stick, chuckit for the K9's or feather sticks, toy mouse, foil balls for kittie friends.

Some animals are less energetic and just enjoy an individual snuggle. (See Rates page for prices.)

Please note all extra playtimes are given providing your pet is friendly!

We recommend one or two of these throughout a stay for our new boarding guests. If it is their first time with us, this definitely helps them feel at home and more comfortable with us faster.

Training

With over 20 years of training experience, we offer fun, motivational training methods for you and your pooch.

Private lessons, problem solving, and in-board training. Call and ask for Charmaine for rates or any training questions.

Training should be fun and rewarding for you and your dog.
