Traveling, whether for business or pleasure, is exciting. You get to experience new things or revisit places from your memories. However, there are a lot of things to organize before a trip. As you sit down to make your list one morning with a cup of coffee, you scratch the dog behind its ears and then it hits you, what am I going to do with the dog?! A part of you wants to take your furry friend with you, but that is probably not going to be possible. You may have friends that can help but just having someone come and go for walks and feeding means that your pup is going lonely and sad.
Luckily there is an affordable alternative for the dog lovers of Germantown looking to travel and keep their pooches happy and healthy. Country Kennel provides short- or long-term dog boarding at our large and picturesque property in Mount Airy.
Country Kennel understands that the dog lovers of Germantown want the best for their pets and are concerned that their canine companions will be properly taken care of.
At Country Kennel we offer:
Temperature controlled living spaces: Differences in hair length, breed and age mean that each dog has different requirements to keep them comfortable. We take this into account with each of the dogs we take care of. Heating and air conditioning is regularly monitored to ensure comfort. We even have a generator ready just in case the power goes out.
Fully covered outdoor area: No matter if it is rain or shine your pooch will be able to be active and have fun. They can play with other boarders or have their own time if requested.
Daily workouts: If you have an active dog, then you may request a personal 15 minute workout specific to their needs. This could be a walk, run, obstacle course or a combination of activities.
Medication: If your dog needs medication then we will happily accommodate their needs for a small fee.
Yappy hour: Provide them with the extra service of a Kong toy filled with peanut butter and treats to keep their tails wagging.
Experienced pet-loving staff: We have more than 45 years of experience taking care of a variety of different breeds with a range of different temperaments.
At Country Kennel, we understand that all our customers are caring and considerate pet owners. However, what we also know is that there are other responsibilities in life other than your dog. The reality of the situation is that spending a week or two with your family or taking a three-day business trip does not make you a bad person or a careless pet owner. In fact, it is often healthy for dogs to interact with others as it can increase their social skills and confidence in their own skin. So, if you need to leave town for a week or two, don’t panic. Our skilled team of dog boarders are here to help and can guarantee a safe and secure home away from home for your dog while you are away.
The simple fact of the matter is that cats are very different than dogs. You don’t need to be a cat expert to know that cats are extremely independent creatures. Unlike their canine counterparts, cats are often content to spend large amounts of time on their own without much human or feline interaction. However, despite being very self-sufficient, the reality is that cats still need human interaction, regular meals and playful stimulation—and if they don’t receive this then problems can arise that can adversely affect their personality. The obvious answer to this question is having a friend look after your cat but again, just because your dog may settle quickly into a new home or to a new person, this won’t necessarily be the case for your cat.
The unfortunate reality is that it can often take cats weeks to adjust to a new person or location. This means that it is often not possible to have a friend or neighbor take care of your cat like may be the case with your dog. After all, cats are notoriously territorial and don’t always settle well to a new person entering their home! So, what is the solution if you are a Germantown cat owner who is out of town from time to time?
