Quiet Corner Dogs
A Sample of Your Dog's Daily Schedule!
Rise and Shine -- dogs are let out in our fenced exercise area for a potty break, then back in their cabins for a light breakfast.
Morning Playtime and Hike -- Every dog gets a play session and/or hike on our private trails, lasting from 45-90 minutes, depending on the dog's energy level, sociability with other dogs and physical condition.
Naptime/Rest Period -- After all that fun, it's time for a nap. Every dog gets the remainder of their breakfast, a chewy or stuffed Kong at naptime, with your permission. They snooze the afternoon away...
Afternoon Play/Hike and Suppertime -- Every dog gets an afternoon play/hike session just like the morning one. This gives them a good appetite for the evening meal, which comes right after playtime.
Night-time Potty Break -- "Last call" comes with a snuggle and/or short play session in our exercise yard.
Tucked In -- Every dog gets a stuffed Kong at bedtime, with your permission. After a day of perfectly balanced play, exercise and rest, we have some contented and tired pups!
Cabin boarding is not for every dog. We've had a small minority of dogs stay here on a trial overnight, only to find that they were not OK being alone in their cabin, with chewies and toys, even after tons of exercise and attention.
The attraction of our cabins is that they are not cages, which means they are not indestructible. How can you be sure your dog won't do this:
Try this: plan to go out for an hour or so. Make sure your dog has had adequate exercise! Set your dog up in a small room of your house. Ideally, it will be a room that doesn't offer a view of you leaving the house. Give your dog one of his or her favorite chewies or a Kong stuffed with some canned dog food or peanut butter. Leave a radio on, make sure your dog has a comfy bed and water. Then, just leave and shut the door.
When you come back, your dog should be fairly relaxed and should have consumed the chewy or the Kong. If your dog is pacing, panting, barking, howling or has scratched at or chewed the door or window frame, a traditional kennel or home petsitter is a better bet for your dog.
