Boarding Your Dog
Pet boarding – our only business – and one that reflects our life long relationship with dogs and cats!
Only boarding! While animal care facilities of more recent vintage gather several animal oriented businesses together, businesses such as grooming, training, boutiques and spas, we’ve chosen to be expert in just one – boarding of dogs and cats.
We’ve been at our kennel for over 20 years, and during that time have seen fads and changes in pet care come and go. Our “bottom line” objective in pet care has always been to:
• Provide secure, safe, and healthy surroundings
• Staff with “dog and cat people” that are aware and sensitive to animal behavior.
• Treat our “guests” as you would like to be treated. Our “Furry Golden Rule”
Tens of thousands of our guests have enjoyed, and continue to enjoy that approach to their care. The more recently established pet care facilities seem to emphasize amenities more fitting for human consumption, and while we understand their motivation, we’re not so certain that our canine and feline guests do!
Only boarding – with a lengthy history of very happy guests and families! Please drop by the kennel, take a tour of our facilities, and receive a 10% discount of your pet’s first stay with us. We believe you’ll become a very pleased customer of West Valley Pet Lodge & Kennel.
Boarding Your Cat
Our cozy Cattery is located in a separate building, quite apart from the main dog kennel area. While your cat may be accustomed to some canine interplay, in particular if your family is boarding both your cat and dog, we find our “aloof” cat guests much prefer their own private area and housing.
Just like our canine guests, cats do thrive on routine. Our staff provides your cat or cats with either special food that you provide, or our top quality Pro Plan Cat Food. While cats can be very choosy about their food, we find that our Pro Plan menu is well liked by all.
The Cattery is small but cozy, and equipped with private “dens” for our guests. Our dens provide a horizontal space for isometric “stretching” exercise, not vertical “condos”, where jumping can lead to injury. They measure 8′ x 2′ x 2′, plenty of room for stretching, and their bedding, toilet, and toys. They are obviously cleaned daily, or during the day if necessary.
The Cattery is temperature controlled with air-conditioning and/or heat, and an all-important, fresh-air turbine and built-in wall fan for proper fresh air circulation. Good fresh air circulation in any pet care facility is of paramount importance in minimizing cross-contamination of air-borne diseases.
While cats enjoy their privacy and sedentary lifestyle, our staff keeps them quite active, in particular while cleaning their dens. Playtime on the Cattery “gymnasium”, different toys to play with, a view of a faux aquarium with moving fish, and simply extra attention keep them plenty busy – if they want to be – while they wait to return home. The feline member or members of your family will find they have been in good hands at West Valley Pet Lodge.
