Personal space is important for the comfort of your dog. Each dog has their own kennel to stretch out and relax in during their stay. Chainlink fences provide your dog with the ability to see all of their surroundings and interact with dogs in the kennels surrounding them. Our unique building layout helps to reduce the stress of a kennel environment. We have a variety of rooms and kennel sizes appropriate for the size and temperament of your dog. Kennel areas are climate controlled with air conditioning and central heating with fans to circulate air flow.


Comfort is our top priority! Blankets and bowls are provided by Apple Creek for every boarding and daycare dog. We welcome anything you wish to bring from home to make your dogs stay more comfortable, but keep in mind your dog may chew items more frequently while away from home. For those pups who love to chew blankets, we offer plastic bone-shaped beds to keep them comfortable. For those with any joint issues or arthritis, we can provide extra blankets as well as mats for extra support and traction.


Our staff is comprised of dog-lovers who are passionate for everything canine: interacting and playing, monitoring their health, keeping their living space clean, and reassuring them that everything will be OK until their parents pick them up. Our staff is trained and certified on Pet CPR and First Aid through PetTech. We also have staff members trained on administering medications on your dog's schedule.
