CANINE Facilities

Your pets are our guests to be pampered and catered to in our spacious indoor/outdoor runs. All of the runs are climate controlled with heat and air-conditioning. All dogs have access to their own private indoor area with decking, measuring 20 square feet. From 8 AM until sleeping time your pet has the option to go outside into it's individual outdoor area, which measures 15 feet long and 5 feet wide. All outside areas are partially covered, so your pets can enjoy shade or sunshine, always protected from sudden rainstorms. At night, of course, your pet is secure and safe indoors. Lots of natural light is provided by plenty of windows throughout the facility and soft music fills the air throughout the day. Fresh water is available to our canine guests at all times.

We have fenced in areas for those who just won't go to the bathroom on concrete. These dogs are walked to special grass and gravel outdoor areas, partially covered, where all inhibitions disappear. In good weather they can spend time outside enjoying shade or sunshine.

FELINE Facilities

Be sure to look in on our unique Cattery, providing the best accommodations for our feline friends. Totally removed from the canine quarters, each kitty guest enjoys a safe, sanitary 2-level home, complete with window and windowsill, as well as the daily use of the Playroom for exercise. Each window faces our outdoor birdfeeder. Every home has a personal litter pan, fresh food and water at all times. Our cattery is completely self contained with heat, air conditioning, water and refrigerator. There's nothing like it anywhere in Georgia!

A strict flea policy keeps our kennel flea free. Every pet is thoroughly checked for any signs of fleas upon arrival. A flea soak, utilizing a mild D-Limonene shampoo, is required if any suspicious signs of even one flea are spotted.

Nature Walks

Some guests prefer to go on solitary exploring excursions, sniffing where the others have been, much like a walk in the park. Our doggie guests are taken on an approximately 20 minute stroll/2x a day through our park-like acreage to our meadow, for some playtime. We use double collars to insure their safety; small dogs will be using a harness. Only dogs from the same household are taken out together.
Return to the Information List

Playtime

This popular service is available to both, cats and dogs. Dogs and cats engage in their favorite activities, one on one with one of our caretakers. Pets from the same household may play together, if requested. No pets from different households are ever put together. Playtime is about 10-15 minutes/2x a day. We adjust the playtime to the special needs of your pet. We will sit down with your pet and have a conversation and scratch its' ears, or we will go into our fenced in exercise area and throw balls, etc. We always keep a selection of cat and dog toys on hand.
