Houssen's Dog Boarding Facilities
have a large area for exercising as you can see in the second
picture. There is an eight foot high fence and wire mesh buried
under ground for extra security. You will also notice more exercise
areas within the huge exercise area. We monitor with closed circuit
TV the inside of the building, the inside temperature, as well
as the yard area at the main house on 4 different monitors. The
action on the right is an agility obedience class in progress.Our
kennel building (on the left) is very well insulated for heating
for the colder months.
we can take care of over 40 dogs comfortably in side of the building.
Our facilities are designed so that we can interact with the dogs
on a personal level. They are not shoved in to a kennel to stay.
They freely come out with us to exercise areas in the secured area.Our
hours are generally 8 AM to 6 PM Monday to Saturday and 2 PM to
4 PM on Sunday as well as 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM on Sunday. In the slower
off seasons it is advisable to call first. This number is given
to you on your first visit with us.We may have something that you
should be aware of. We are trainers. Training dogs over 30 years
as a couple, Darr and I. This is important for the care of your
dog as if there is any separation anxiety, fear or aggression we
know how to deal with this and make your dog feel like he/she is
on a vacation as well. Our job is to do just that. If you can go
on vacation, have a good time because your pet (baby) is in good
hands and on vacation as well, then we have done our job. You will
see the second time you come here. Your dog will pull you towards
the kennel area. Isn't this what you would want?Not sure? call your
local veterinarian or pet store or even better. Someone who has
been here before. Then, even before making a decision on where you
would like to leave your pet, visit all the candidates.
Picture from summer
all the boarding kennels you are considering. Then make your decision.
After all you would do exactly that if it was your child going
to a new day care center right!.
rates are $30.00 per day total. Our days are measured somewhat
like a motel would charge. Except we are a little more lenient.
For instance if you come in at 9 AM and go out at 6 PM the next
day this is a 2 day charge. If you come in at 9 AM and go out
the next day before noon this is a one day charge. If your not
exactly sure of the charges be sure to ask. At the bottom of this
web page there is a link to a map to our facilities and directions.
It is on a separate web page so you can print it to bring to your
car.Remember to make your next trip away from home an enjoyable
one for both you, and your dog.
