With your pet here while you are at work or on vacation, it will be more similar to them being in their own home without the intrusion of someone in your home. We keep either a tv or radio on for the guests. We do not use concrete kennel runs with dog doors, or indoor potty areas as we feel those teach bad house habits. Instead, they have time outside in a secure safe area. We have “potty areas” with pea gravel which is fenced off (half is under cover for bad weather) and the rest of the yard provides a great play area with grass, trees, play equipment, toys and sunshine.
Our Dog Room
This is a converted “great room” which has 10 kennels with a lot of lighting, bright colors and easy to sanitize G-Flooring which is also easy on their feet. We have elevated beds for those pets who prefer them, big thick comforters or fleece blankets (depending on the needs of each pet). We use stainless steel bowls and water buckets as they do not promote germ growth and all are washed after each use (buckets are sanitized daily, dishes after each meal). All areas are sanitized daily (generally three times a day, or more during muddy seasons).
Since we do not have indoor/outdoor “runs” we do rotations for potty time and play time as needed. We do not expect them to have to “go” only two or three times a day, and we feel this helps to keep healthy dogs as well as consistent good house manners and allows for good exercise – we all know a tired dog is a good dog! We are happy to send photos/video during their stay so you can see how they are doing!
