What fun they had,

Actually, our dogs (well, your dogs, in fact) have plenty to keep 'em busy ~ no need of the cats, it's true. The kennels themselves are large, indoor/outdoor affairs with a/c and lots and lots of human and dog-folks all around. And then there's them yards!! Whoooohooo! Take a look at the pics and you'll see what we mean.
Oh, and there are snuggly dog beds (including raised Kuranda beds for those who like 'em), toys, the best quality food, lots of activity and exercise, and every now and then a love-you-to-pieces hug.
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat did a widdle!
Not where you'd expect but on that!
We'd given his litter and we showed him just how,
But he sneered with a turn and then splat!
We couldn't help ourselves ~ one rhyme just wasn't enough.
Smudge Inn, Molly Motel, Chaplin Cabin; three catteries named after our own DKC cats. Multi-story indoor/outdoor enclosures (with a/c, of course), configurable partitions to create different sizes depending on need and activity levels, bedding, scratching posts and toys, perching shelves on-high, sunshine and good goooooood food.
Even in the summer heat, you'd be amazed to see how many of our (oops... your) cats love to lounge outside in the shade, gazing as the world goes by.
The Kennatteries? What's a KENNATTERY, for goodness sake?!
Well... a kennattery is a place where your dog and cat can stay together in the same enclosure! Of course it is!
Now, there are some rules (surprised?). First of all, your dog has to have a fairly laid back temperament. (You know... not too much barking at every opportunity because you don't want the cats in the area to hate dogs any more than they already do, right? Right!) Also, your dog has to be a small breed, like in the pictures to the right.
Tough criteria? Hope not! We actually have quite a few customers whose dogs and cats love each other sooooo much, they're very happy to board with us together. Just let us know if you're interested and we'll see if we can make it happen.
Should I be worried if my dog or cat has lost or gained weight during their boarding stay?
