General Boarding Information:
On January 2016 we underwent a major renovation in an effort to ensure that our boarding guests enjoy their indoor accommodations as much as their outdoor playtime. Our new Mason kennels have tempered glass fronts for dogs who enjoy more of an open atmosphere. We also have kennels which are glass with a privacy panel for dogs who prefer a little solitude. Our kennels are extra large and are climate controlled with heat and air conditioning. Our facility is kept immaculate and is disinfected daily. Each building has a generator so even in the event of a power outage, we can ensure that our guests remain happy and comfortable.
Bedroom suites are available for dogs with special needs and/or small "social dogs". Accommodations are separated from the regular kennels and include toddler beds, cushy doggie beds and "relaxing music."
All dogs are handled by loving, attentive, qualified staff most of whom have been with CCK for years. We are flexible in your dog's care and needs. If your dog requires something special such as being hand fed or sung to, we are happy to oblige. We understand that it is difficult for some dogs to be away from their home and owners and we are happy to take the extra time and make the effort to make your dog comfortable and happy to be with us. On the rare occasion where we find a dog is just not acclimating to boarding....we will let you know as they would probably be better off having someone stay in their home with them. Each dog is thoroughly checked over from head to foot twice a day for their safety and well being. Country Club Kennels only hires people who are truly passionate about dogs and the care they provide to them.
All dogs who stay with us are given exercise/playtime 6 to 7 times a day in large, grass exercise paddocks surrounded by 6 foot fencing. A tired dog is a happy dog! Country Club Kennels is designed to accommodate friendly, social dogs. In order to take all of our dogs out 6-7 times a day, we are not able to take in too many anti social dogs at any one time as there are not enough hours in the day to ensure everyone would still have their numerous outings. Our social dogs are turned out to play in supervised play groups with owner's permission and at the kennel's discretion. If your dog does not do well with other dogs, feel free to contact us to discuss. We may be able to take him/her in as long as we do not have too many other singles.
Note! There are no additional charges for these outings unlike many other facilities. We make sure each dog is treated equally and given ample opportunity to go out and get some fresh, country air, socialize with their friends, sniff and explore and run and frolic.
Proof of Current Vaccinations
- All dogs require proof of Rabies, Distemper, and Bordatella vaccinations.
- Country Club Kennels requires that dogs have their Bordatella vaccine every six months, and must have it administered at least one week prior to arrival. We understand that some vets say that their vaccine is good for one year, however, in an effort to minimize the risk of kennel cough occurring and/or spreading, we have consulted with our vets and feel it is in everyone's best interest to have the vaccine given every six months. We will accept a vaccinated dog as long as the bordatella has been given with the past nine months, however, we still prefer every six months.
- This is mandatory and is for the benefit of your pet as well as any other boarders.
- Please e-mail or fax your pet's shot record prior to dropping of your pet.
- Medications are administered at no extra charge!
* Note: All medication(s) must be accompanied with written instructions signed by the owner, pertaining to: How, When and the Quantity to administer. It is also important that we know what the medication is being administered for. If medications are excessive or need to be given more than twice a day, a minor charge may be applied.
(Example): "Take one tablet by mouth 4 times a day, after meals and at bedtime."
Please bring your pet's food, your contact phone number and any medication currently being taken by your pet.
You are welcome to bring special treats and labeled personalized belongings. However, we cannot guarantee that all personal belongings are returned in the condition they arrive in. We provide bedding to all of our boarders.
We have toddler beds, Kuranda cot beds, plush doggie beds and blankets. If you prefer that your dog have his or her own bed you are welcome to bring it, however, we ask that it not be excessively bulky.

Upon arrival your pet will be checked for fleas and general overall health. If fleas are found, your pet will be given a mandatory pre-boarding bath and dip at the owner's expense. Bathing is also available at the owners request. We highly recommend and encourage use of monthly flea/tick preventative as well as monthly heartworm preventative. If your dog has any pre-existing conditions or behaviors we should know about, please take this opportunity to inform the staff upon check-in.
Charges begin the day your pet arrives.
There are no charges for the departure day if your pet is picked up during our AM hours. If your pet stays until the afternoon hours, there will be a day's charge. Our customer hours are 8:30am - 12:00 pm and 2:30pm - 6:30pm.
Due to the necessity of handling dogs during their several outings, we are unable to accommodate overly aggressive dogs.

- Un-neutered males who are older than 8 months will be charged an additional $10/day. We do not accept females who are in their heat cycle. However, we understand that this is not always predictable, so if a female comes into heat while with us, there will be an additional $10/day charge.

- Summer and Spring Break: normal $40 per day charge, but no multiple pet discounts.

All clients will be charged a 50% cancellation fee for these bookings if we are not given at least one week's notice of a cancellation.
