    Canine Accommodations

    In addition to numerous country walks daily through our beautiful meadow and 700 acre surrounding properties with our staff, all dogs may spend time in our spacious shade covered outdoor runs cushioned with rubber mats for some rousing playtime or just lounging the afternoon away (weather permitting). We always provide a great variety of today's most innovative toys for your dogs entertainment and enjoyment.

    For a small additional fee, ($10 per session) individual one on one play times with our staff can be reserved for your pet for one or all of  the days your pet will be residing with us.

    Canine guests will enjoy their overnight stay's in our cozy climate controlled (70 degrees year round) indoor only  accommodations.

    Veterinarians and animal behaviorist alike have educated us to the fact that all dogs are den animals by nature. It is why we see them under the table or wedged in next to the couch or seeking out the comforts of their own crate or den when they are at home. Canines of all breeds instinctively prefer an enclosed space for sleeping and rest where they can observe out the front. As such, after a full day of  activities, several  country walks with our staff, outdoor play and lounging in our spacious runs, and some one on one playtime at your request, we knowingly provide your companion with a restful secure sleeping environment equivalent to what owners provide for them at home making the transition to boarding absolutely seamless and stress free.

    Our spacious dens (the largest in the industry, that will comfortably house a Great Dane) all have custom made thick orthopedic mats for maximum comfort and to cushion sensitive skin and joints. We also provide thick spa towels and a super soft fuzzy for comfort and security, all of our guest's linens are changed daily.

    We encourage you to send along your pets favorite toys, antler chew, nylabone's and treats (no rawhide please).

    For your peace of mind and ours we have full time staff residing on the property and all guest's are carefully monitored 24/7.

    We focus on providing superior care and personalized attention to each and every one of our guest's and we work hard to promote a fun and active environment.

    Diligent cleansing and sanitation of all pet areas is standard daily practice at Oakwood in order to keep all areas spotless, disinfected and "Flea Free".

    For the health and well being of all of our clients, pet guest's and staff we maintain a Smoke Free facility and grounds.

    Our facility utilizes as many of  today's  "green" sanitation methods as possible including the use of many non toxic natural products in addition to today's latest broad spectrum technology powerful disinfectants. It is important to us to maintain the good health of your pet and to help preserve the earth.

    Your pets health and emotional well being is always our number one priority.

    Boarding for all breeds of dogs and cats is $25.00 per night. (There is no charge for the day your pet goes home.)   

    Extra playtime is $10 per 15 minute session. You may schedule as many as you like during your pets stay.
