Boarding For Dogs

With four acres there is plenty of room for dogs to run, play and explore.  We have two large enclosed outdoor play areas for your dog(s). One area for small dogs and another for larger canines, both of which are treed for shady resting areas and open spaces for stretching out their legs. Your dogs will have access to this outdoor park individually or as part of a group depending on your dog's needs.  If your dog(s) are well socialized they will be able to get the most of what we offer here. On days when the weather doesn’t agree with outdoor play or if they prefer to spend limited time outside, there is a large indoor play area to accommodate all dogs exercise requirements.

During resting times, the dogs can stay in their large individual interior kennel, that has plenty of space for all of their belongings.  The staff at Better Than Home will make sure to spend some one on one cuddle time with your dog(s) during this time.  For well socialized dogs with owner’s permission, there is a large living room area made specifically for staff to hang out with your dog, who can pick a spot on a couch or find a dog bed on the floor and curl up there.  Better Than Home has designed a kennel that shares the comforts of home with the benefit of human interaction and other dogs company during their stay.

We can provide any type of care that your dog requires. Our goal is to cater to your dogs’ desires and not just their needs. Our kennel has in-floor heating so your dog never will have to lay on a damp, cold floor. During quiet times, music will be playing so your dog can rock out or sing a love song to a new found friend.

We encourage you to bring your own food (it’s best for most dogs to maintain their usual diets) however, food can be provided for a cost if required or if food is forgotten. Dogs are welcome to bring a suitcase with their usual creature comforts (bed, blanket, toys, bones, food dishes, jacket and treats) if desired. Your dog will have access to all activities and facilities at no extra charge, the only limiting factor is how well your dog gets along with others and what level of interaction you are comfortable authorizing.


NOTE:  To stay at Better Than Home, your dogs require up-to-date Canine Distemper vaccine, Bordetella (kennel cough) and Rabies vaccinations.
