Our methods of boarding are simple, We believe in building a relationship by giving the dogs the opportunity to get into a expected routine of handling and time outside their room that is conditioned with calmness through out the day. Dogs taken from a familiar setting can become nervous or excited to the point of being ill or scared. Not all dogs have this problem due to the fact of being socialized well by the owners that creates good behavior in times away from them. We believe that most dogs thrive through human contact more so than canine contact because thats what takes place most of the time. Not every body has a chance to let their dog play with another unfamiliar dog at home , but if they do, the owners of those dogs are the leader and should have more control of them under their leadership. Here we are handlers and trainers to help your dog adjust to being somewhere unfamiliar. Our goal has been and always will be that your dog is safe from injury and disease while in our care.  In having the opportunity to train working dogs that require high levels of obedience for over thirty years, ive found that some dogs can get exercise from playing with another dog while being handled by someone with experience to read the situation well and head off any mishaps that might happen. But as with many of us if we aren't conditioned for a mile run, playing a friendly game of football, or something we may not be accustom to, we are setting ourselves up for a possible injury, it's the same for a dog. We condition our boarders for their stay personally as a individual not as a group until your dog is ready for a new friend that he or she is comfortable with both emotionally and physically. We never thrust your dog into a group unless you as the owner gives us permission and most important, if it will be good for your dog. Finally when your dog meets a new furry friend it always has been one of our very own dogs that we allow to associate with your dog because we know them the best for this important stage of getting your dog to know what its all about. And at the end of your dogs stay we hope that he or she has made a new friend that you can count on to be here for them when they need us to be.      Thank you, Rod Moberly
