At Dragonluck Kennels we provide our doggie visitors with a “camp” experience. Clients say ”Their doggies can't wait to get back and actually start getting excited as they drive closer to the property.”
Your dog can enjoy interactive playtime, bedtime treats, outdoor fun, off leash walks and more when they stay with us!
The owner of the kennel personally plays and walks all dogs and reinforces basic obedience with each dog. Extra staff are scheduled during peak seasons.
Owners are encouraged to do a pre-stay visit to familiarize themselves with the setting. Toys and blankets brought from home are also encouraged. Families are encouraged to call or email anytime to see how the dogs are doing as well.
Our kennels are attached directly to our home which means we know when they are asking to play or go out. Fall of 2012 we have renovated to add 4 new full size runs for a total of 11 and a food prep room. We now have a dishwasher to ensure the bowls and dishes are disinfected between uses and dogs. We also wash any soiled bedding in the kennel washer so your dog has a clean bed every night. There is also an indoor play area where smaller dogs and those not used to kennels can spend their time. Kennels have large outdoor spaces accessible from the indoor kennels and a large play area, which has doubled in size this fall (2012) where some dogs can visit and play with other dogs. Dogs used to using crates (kennels) at home may use one of our crates or bring their own for their rest and night time sleep place. Our maximum capacity including those who bring their own rooms(crates) is 40. Dogs staying in the runs may be doubled up and have a new friend share with them during peak seasons. Many dogs find this comforting and make good dog friends.
Thirty acres of fenced in fields are available for off leash walks and there is a large pond for those who like to swim. Play areas are tree shaded and have a view of the back yard and the walking fields. The thirty acres is fenced on three areas and the back is swamps and the pond preventing most dogs from wondering away from the other dogs.
All dogs bring their own food and therefore continue to eat their own diet. We can accommodate all types of diet including Raw. We also can administer medication if required.
Health and Safety
For the safety of all the dogs we respect what you and your Vet have decided is appropriate for your dogs' health. Therefore we do not have any mandatory vaccines but ask owners to realize that colds and stomach flu can be picked up in any setting where dogs congregate including dog parks and we will do our best to ensure that your dog remains healthy during their stay. We are all certified in Pet First aid and use some natural remedies such as pureed pumpkin and slippery elm for those nervous upset stomachs.
Special care can be provided for young puppies and older dogs, who are often given quiet, separate spaces with lots of comfortable blankets.
Dragonluck kennels uses only natural cleaning products and non-chlorine bleach to maintain a clean healthy environment.
Runs are all gravel and grass and the concrete floors are cushioned with individual beds or blankets supplied by us or the owners. The heating is under the floors so the concrete is very comfortable in the colder seasons. The main kennel is air conditioned in the hottest seasons and each run/crate has a bucket of fresh water available at all times.
Payment is by cash or check. A deposit policy is in place for peak holidays such as March Break and Christmas/New Years.
