GOLD DUCAT KENNELS...

We have two air conditioned kennel buildings with a total of 33 indoor/outdoor runs.  The boarders get lots of exercise chasing chickens and goats through the fence when they are let out in fenced play yards.  The heavily-wooded 8 acres are also fully fenced, where supervised off-leash nature walks are taken two or three times each day, weather permitting.  Additionally, we have seven 440 square foot play yards to accommodate small groups together or individually, depending on each dog's needs. 

Current vaccinations are a must and records are required for the safety of all pets.  We follow the Cornell Veterinary School vaccination protocol.  Distemper, Parvo and Rabies need only be updated every 3 years.  Bordetella should be updated every 12 months--the nasal bordetella with parainfluenza is the most effective vaccine.  Dogs older than the age of 10 no longer need Distemper and Parvo vaccinations.  We also require the H3N2 vaccination per the advice of your vet.

We will provide food, or you can bring your own.  If you do bring your own food please pack it in 1 gallon zip lock bags.  Each bag holds approximately 12 cups. We feed Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach (Salmon and rice).  Please let us know what and how much your dog eats.  We are sometimes referred to as the Doggie Spa because your dog may lose a few unwanted pounds while here.  They usually get so much exercise they can lose weight without having to eat less.   

Upon request we will also do limited grooming which includes bath and nails for most breeds, and full grooming for sporting breeds.

Bed checks are conducted at 11 pm and each dog is tucked in with a biscuit.  Although we can't duplicate your own home, we want your pet to feel as much at home as possible.

Special Pick-up
If someone other than yourself has to pick-up your pet, it must be arranged at check-in. This is for the protection and safety of your pet.

Pets Boarding Together
All pets who board together in one run, must be able to eat together or they must be boarded separately.
