Whenever you go out of town and your dog needs a warm, loving place to stay overnight or for an extended period, Stonington Kennels is here for you. We take extra care to provide a safe, healthy, and worry-free boarding experience for your canine family member.
Each dog has its own 4' by 4' inside bedroom, with a see-through door that leads directly to its own 4' by 10' outside covered run. All inside and outside runs are washed down and disinfected daily. Water is available at all times. Music is played continuously to provide a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Bedding is provided by the kennel. Owners may bring special treats if they desire--in labeled Zip-lock bags.
During the cooler months, inside rooms are maintained at 70 degrees and dogs are exercised in their own individual outside runs four or five times per day, beginning at 7 am and ending at 11 pm. During the warmer months kennels are cooled by a combination of natural ventilation and central air conditioning and the dogs' doors remain open during the day to allow them to run in and out as they wish.
Individual play sessions are available for a small additional fee. This is when we bond with your pets through play and petting. Play sessions are done individually or with housemates.
Dogs that stay with us more that 7 charged nights receive a complimentary bath (except during peak times including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring break due to high occupancy)
We require all current innoculations for each dog brought onto the property.
These vaccinations must have been given at least 48 hours prior to the animal's stay.
Please try to avoid a visit to the vet at least two weeks prior to its stay at the kennel, as vets may have sick dogs on their premises.
