Dog Boarding

Stonington kennels reserves the right to separate dogs if necessary.
Larger breeds may require their own room
Each bedroom consists of a 4x4 inside room that is private with a 4x10 outside covered area. The inside rooms are temperature controlled with air conditioning and heat.
Our suites are 4x8 inside with a 8x10 outside covered area.

A day at Stonington:

7 am - time for breakfast, potty break in the yards, and a cookie
11 am- potty time and playtime if applicable and a cookie
12:30-2:30- nap time. Our pets need down time it is good for their mental and physical health.
3 pm- potty break and 2nd playtime and cookie
5-6 pm- time for dinner and potty break and cookie
9 pm last call for potty break
10 pm- everyone gets a check over, good night cookie and lights out

Remember we take each dog out individually or with housemates. Playtime is extra time out in the yards with us. We run, play with toys, and cuddle. This is our time to bond with your pup. There is an extra fee for playtime, see pricing for details.
If you notice we give lots of cookies. This is another way to strengthen that trust and bond that we want with each pet that comes to stay with us. We want them to feel safe, secure, and loved while they stay with us.
