Rippling Run Kennel
Just picked my dogs up from Rippling Run Kennel yesterday and what a pleasant experience it was! I had to go out of town on short notice this past weekend and needed to find a place for my dogs. Rippling Run was very accommodating and easy to work with. The girl in the front office mentioned to me something about new ownership and doing renovations to the kennel. She took me on a quick tour and I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs. The staff there was very helpful. I will certainly be coming back!

I have used Rippling Run for years and have been very happy with them. I know they have changed hands a few times but Jessica has always been fantastic with my dog. I love how much time and care they take and am so happy I found them. I recommend them highly to my friends any chance I get.
Tips & Advices
Pets that do not get along with other animals may incur an additional fee. Some facilities have special solitary sleeping and play animals for these types of pets.
A checklist for what to bring to a pet kennel includes:
  • Vaccination records
  • A favorite toy or blanket
  • Food and feeding instructions (if the pet has dietary restrictions or is a picky eater)
  • Medication (if necessary, in its original bottle and with written instructions)
Some pet kennels have veterinarians as part of their daily staff, while others only have vets part time or on call.
Most kennels can provide basic care such as administering medications, but owners of pets with serious medical issues should choose a facility with a veterinarian on call.
Bordetella, commonly known as kennel cough, is highly contagious, and most dogs catch it at least once in their lifetimes. As such, all dogs should be vaccinated at least 7 days before boarding.
