This kennel was custom built for my show dogs (Collies) in 1999. I made sure that each inside sleeping area was kept climate controlled, with a full bathing and grooming center, and a complete kitchen carrying only the best in meat-based dry foods. We added chicken, elk and deer seasonally, especially to grow long shiny coats. After 35 years of breeding and exhibiting Collies I decided to retire and let my older dogs age out here with me. However, with no other pet sitting, pet walking/free exercise all-inclusive and home-like facility for about 100 miles; and knowing that most people do not want to leave their beloved friends at vet clinics, pay big motel fees, leave them behind with sitters who may have other jobs, and to make sure they could enjoy all the recreation areas and sights, I chose to open the pet sitting kennel up for visitors to the area who did not feel right about paying rising pet care fees. Keeping the boarding fee the lowest in the whole Southwest area is a reflection of a greater concern for the care of your pets than making money. I raised world class dogs, so when I retired I wanted to give world class care to travelers and locals.
Living right here with the animals we care for makes a person, animal lover and business owner much more aware of eating, sleeping, exercise schedules, phone calls, being available at all hours and providing pet concierge services. I do not believe it is healthy to leave your pets in a veterinary center, or at any kennel that keeps their floors wet and play areas too small or separated from other pet friends yours might like to hang out with. Collies are genial dogs. Dogs are happiest in small groups for play; happy walking and listening to the always-on TV together; happier hearing a human voice at any time of the day or night; and happier in their own large sleeping quarters, especially at eating time or when the weather is bad. An experienced breeder/exhibitor like me knows dogs and what they think and need.
