At Rock Creek Kennel, we’re dedicated to providing an uncommon level of care to our canine and feline boarders. After all, to us they’re family! We take every step possible to provide individual attention to ensure the comfort of our boarders. Each room is temperature controlled so we can match as closely as possible their home environment and our buildings are exceptionally well-insulated to guard against the heat of summer and the chill of winter. An emergency power source is also on hand to guard against power outages. We also play music 24 hours a day so your pet won’t feel alone.
Each day of your pet’s visit we’ll meticulously clean and disinfect his or her individual space. In addition, rooms, patios, and play areas are maintained to the standards of the most discriminating dog. To ensure this safe and hygienic environment we will not accept dogs suffering from, or suspected to be suffering from, any infectious or contagious disease.
Each dog that stays with us will have its own private room with an attached, fully-enclosed patio for exercise. As mentioned above, all rooms are temperature controlled for maximum comfort. In addition, during the summer we use misters in the patio area and the exercise yards. Of course comfortable beds are provided in each room but to maximize your pet’s comfort while with us, we encourage you to provide the bedding they use at home.
During their stay they will receive:
Your dog will always be fed as an individual guest. We offer quality dog food to all of our boarders. However, if your pet has special dietary needs or you wish to keep him or her on their normal diet, you can provide the same food as he or she eats at home. Pre-bagged in individual bags for each meal plus one or two extra in case of late pick up.
All guests of Rock Creek Kennels have access to individual patio areas where they can stretch their legs. Your dog receives two visits to the exercise yard each day, included in your basic boarding fee. At your request, for a small fee, the staff will walk your dog on a leash or provide free-range individual time in large exercise paddocks. We try to provide as much freedom as possible but your pet’s security is a primary concern. With that in mind we’ve created safety corridors adjacent to outside play-areas and all doors and gates have locks on them. Our outdoor play areas are equipped with artificial turf, which our visitors love, as it keeps them clean and is easily sanitized to ensure good hygiene and health for your family member.
Note: Special prices may be arranged for more than one pet and for boarding periods exceeding 30 days.
