Mountainview Pet Retreat
I would not recommend this facility for boarding your dog. The owner is very unprofessional, and canceled the reservation for my dog two days before I was supposed to drop her off. Her reasoning behind canceling was that she was full and no longer had room. She was also very rude on the phone.

Mountainview Pet Retreat
My dog loves Mountain View Pet Retreat! And so do I!The facilities are clean. Pat and Ralph are just lovely to deal with. They make you feel very comfortable about leaving your dog and encourage you to call for check up reports on your pet. They are truly dog lovers and it really shows in the quality of care they deliver. I drive 30 miles one way to board my dog and it is worth every mile.
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.
