Frequently Asked Questions
What are your kennels like?
We have Mason Kennels, each Kennel has a 4 ft. Stainless Steel Panel on each side for privacy and sanitation. They also have a Channel sealed to the floor under each panel to prevent urine or anything else from entering the next dog's run. The Kennel Building uses Radiant Heat, is Air Conditioned with a clean air exchange system and is on a 24 hour smoke alarm system monitored by Trans-Alarm. We use pet cots for sleeping and have blankets and bedding available or you may bring one with. The kennel sizes vary in size from 4'x6' , 3'x8' and most are 4'x8'. With plenty of room for two family dogs to be boarded together. We believe that dogs need their own space for safety and to be able to eat their own food and have their own water to help prevent the spread of disease. At the end of the day, they have a place to have their own belongings and bed.

What do we need to bring with us when we drop off our dog?
Please bring food for your dog. There is a $3.00/day charge (for Iams) if owners don't bring their dog's food.
We are also now asking owners to bring their own food if they are not on Iams or Iams Lite, as that is the only food we carry at Blue Ribbon Kennels. The dogs do best when their diet is kept the same. We still have treats for them.
You can also bring rawhides or special treats from home, A copy of your dogs' vaccinations are required.
Stainless Steel bowls are used when feeding your dog. You may bring bedding, a toy or chew bone, but please NO Quilts or Large Blankets.
