  Beach Bound Hounds  

Each dog is housed in their own private kennel run.  There are solid dividers on the sides for privacy and noise reduction. Dogs like a solid divider between them and their neighbors, like their own little retreat where no one can see them from the sides. It also greatly reduces dogs barking at each other, (out of sight, out of mind) and thus reduces the stress on the dogs. Plus, the way our kennel is set up, dogs are in more of a "round", so that no one is directly across from each other which also reduces barking.  This design also keeps the kennel from looking like a shelter with a walkway down the middle and runs on either side. 

Dogs are let outside to exercise/potty individually.

We do not let dogs out in groups

 

We have three areas for boarding dogs:  our Indoor/Outdoor runs, our Indoor runs, and our giant dog runs.

   In the Indoor/Outdoor run area, the dogs are able to go in and out as necessary during the day.  Except on hot days or cold days, when the doors are kept closed to conserve energy.  The doors are also closed when the kennel is closed and after 7 pm at night.  These runs have in-floor radiant heat in the indoor run area.  Outside runs are covered completely, each individual run gives the boarder his own area to walk outside.  Surrounding the outside runs is a chain link security fence that goes from the concrete floor to the roof,  preventing any possible escapes.  These dogs are also taken individually outside to the exercise area 4 times a day, as long as the dog is manageable and friendly. 

   The indoor run area houses the majority of our boarders. The decor is bright and cheery and really reflects our beach theme.  There are a variety of run sizes to suit each size and temperament of dog.  Even sizes that family members can stay together.  There are custom painted solid dividers in each of these runs, so the dogs can feel safe and secure in their own space.  These dogs are taken outside individually to our outdoor runs for exercise and potty breaks. 

Our giant runs are just that, giant. Built for our Mastiffs, they are 12ft by 13ft inside and 12ft by 15 ft outside.  Each run has a roof over it outside, so the runs are protected from the elements.   As in the indoor outdoor runs, these also have doors which are closed at night, and during the day if its very hot or very cold to conserve energy.   The dogs in this area have extra large Kuranda beds that comfortably fit great danes,. mastiffs, or a couple of labs. These runs are especially nice for labs, or any high energy dogs.  Lots of room to run, and there is always some form of wildlife in the fields behind the kennels for them to bark at.  

    We continuously observe the dogs during the day to assure they are comfortable and stress free and may move them if we think they'd be happier in another area.  Sometimes a dog who is shy at first will come out of his shell and will want to be nearer to the "action".  It's all based on our observations of each individual dog's behavior and comfort level.  I also have security cameras placed strategically throughout the kennel so i can check on them even when I'm not in the kennel.
