Boarding

Here at NCK, we have had many wonderful furry friends come to visit. One of our families said it is like summer camp for dogs!

Boarding will Hopefully resume like normal in the summer of 2021, with some great upgrades to the play kennel! Agility Playground Coming!!!

This is so difficult for me. I do not like to disappoint my families, and I miss all the dogs who normally come to visit each year. My concerns with this virus is the fact that dogs can get it. Dogs inhale everything they come into contact with, because they sniff everything. Your doggy comes into contact with a lot each day!. Dogs do not social distance. Dogs can get covid! If a dog comes here, and seems healthy, doesn't have symptoms, but has been exposed to a virus, including the covid virus, that exposes my pack and every dog here. And anyone who has boarded a dog knows that a pack of dogs will spread a contagious illness to every dog that has come into contact with. I have to put the health of my breeding dogs 1st! This is why I think for now, we will put boarding on hold. And hope things are back to normal soon!! Please remember us when planning your 2021 summer vacations. We do miss you all!!

If you have never been here before and want to consider letting us babysit your doggy, we will start by scheduling a visit for you and your dog. We want to make sure you, your dog, and I am comfortable with each other. I will show you around and handle your dog on leash. If everything goes well, and you like what you see, we will schedule your boarding.

Because of the care we provide your pet, we will only take 3 - 4 dogs at a time. We make them part of the family when they are here! So always reserve early. Busy times of the year are, all the summer Holidays, late summer before school is back in session, and Thanksgiving. Book early!

My normal boarding rules are below.

Your dog must not have been to another kennel/doggy day care/dog park, or anywhere there are a lot of strange dogs, a full 2 weeks before coming here for boarding. It is too easy to catch a bug/kennel cough or a flu. I do not want anything spreading to my pack. And I want you to rest assured your dog is in a safe environment. Please be sure not to take your dog anywhere else when you are schedule to bring them here. 2 full weeks of staying home required before coming here!!

More Rules: Your angel must be healthy, spayed/neutered, current on vaccines/vet check-ups. Must not have fleas! Must be able to play with other pets and friendly with people. We have 5 acres in the country, with fenced-in large play area's, I love to take walks on our trails (never without a dog). We will welcome your pet into our home and make sure they are well cared for, loved, and have fun!! Your pet will be with my pack as long as they are comfortable with everyone. They will spend some time outside, to go potty and to play in the large fenced play kennel with all my doodles, depending on the weather, they might be allowed a few hours, or only a few minutes. They will spend the night in my basement and will get their own kennel, usually 6x12'. So if you like to bring toys or blankets for your pet that is fine, but not necessary. They will have their own bed with a blanket in their room. I do have video surveillance on the property and through out the basement so I can always keep an eye on everyone! But I am with them a lot!! During the day if we aren't outside playing your pet will spend time with my pack in the basement where dogs rule. They are only kenneled up at night to sleep. I really do want your pet to like it here, and they will! It is important to me.

We had so many doodle's in the play pen, and they were all running through the pools, and all around the pen. Chasing who ever was "it" at the moment. I went and grabbed my camera to capture the fun on video. But they all stopped playing to see what I was doing.

Are you coming for a visit??
We love to have visitors! However, We can not have people just drop in. If I am in the middle of doing something with pups, or perhaps I have dogs loose outside without a leash, because we are training or simply getting some exercise I can not have people pull in without causing me problems. Please do not drop in.  

Having visitors is great for my pack, and for litters of pups who are learning social skills. . Everyone will bark when you get here because you are a stranger, and when they are together as a pack, they act like a pack. But they will settle down after you are here for a bit.  We live in the country, dress accordingly, nice clothes and nice shoes are not a good idea. 

I am happy to arrange my day to visitor's just let me know when to expect you, and please do not be late.

Also remember, we have a schedule around here, I often arrange our day and routine around visitors. However when people are late it causes us all problems. I have had many visitors be as much as an hour or longer late. I can deal with 15 minutes late, but anything later requires a phone call. Please!!
