Sundog Boarding Kennel
Sun Dog Boarding is an amazing place to take your dog. There is a lovely and very, very clean inside play area with separate kennels for feeding and sleeping. There is also the ability for the dogs to run in the yard and play-cage free. My family truly believes that a natural cage-free environment keeps your dog healthy during a stressful time away from the home. Sun Dog provides this amazingly. We have boarded our extra-large dog a few times and he comes back without kennel cough, happy, and tired from playing. Rather than shying away, he LOVES to go to the "puppy hotel" and runs right to Allison and the other dogs. She keeps all sizes of dogs and has a way with them. The dogs know that she is the pack leader and they listen to her when she gives commands, such as stop barking or go into the kennels for feeding. My family very highly recommend taking your dog to Sun Dog and you will be guaranteed to have a happy and healthy dog!
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.
