Choosing to board your dog is a very difficult decision. Most people consider their dogs to be family members so leaving them in the hands of strangers isn’t easy. Many kennels offer minimal supervision of the boarded animals. Most offer nothing more than a caged placed for your dog to stay, and food. The Kennels of St. Francis, on the other hand, has exceeded our expectations for a dog boarding facility.
The Kennels of St. Francis boarding facility is located in the rural area of Verona, Kentucky, about 18 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio. The location provides boarding services for dogs and cats, grooming services, and is also a breeder of German shepherds. The owners obviously really care about dogs, and did not just open up a boarding facility to make some cash. They are knowledgeable and friendly, and are true “dog people.”
The facility features a smaller kennel that is completely indoors for older, small, or younger dogs that do not need a large run. The main building features indoor/outdoor dog runs. These runs allow the dog to choose when to go in and out. The indoor area is both heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer. If your dog likes spending time outside in the sun, he can choose to head out whenever he wants to.
In addition to the large, indoor/outdoor dog runs, the Kennels of St Francis also offers some of the lengthiest outdoor running and bathroom time of any kennel in existence. Dogs are taken outdoors for potty and play time four times a day for twenty minutes to one hour at a time. The time variations depend upon weather, capacity, and the dog’s general desire and mood. This far exceeds the typical bathroom/outdoor time given to boarded animals. The boarding facility is located on several green acres so the dogs can really enjoy their time outside. Many facilities simply have fenced-in concrete areas for the dogs to run in.
The prices for boarding are also quite reasonable. It costs $15 a day for dogs up to 100 pounds. The only other facilities that offer the amenities of the Kennels of St. Francis, charge considerably more. Since there is grooming on site, you can also choose for your dog to get a nice bath, or have a toenail trim, during her stay.
Finding a comfortable, trustworthy place to leave your beloved pet when you are away is quite difficult. Make the decision easier by considering the Kennels of St. Francis for a comfortable, loving stay for your dog.
