I’ve spent a great deal of time working in other pet hotels and kennels in the Pacific Northwest, and I’ve thought carefully about the features and services I want to offer in my kennel. As my family and I built this space and created each kennel nook, the comfort of your pet was always at the forefront of our intentions.
The following are my promises to you regarding the health, safety, and comfort of your pets while they’re in my care. I know that if you’ve researched other kennels and pet hotels in the area, you’ll find that TLC Pet Boarding consistently lives up to higher standards in the areas of cleanliness, interaction, and comfort than most.
1. Access to the Outdoors All Day
Each kennel nook has a hatch door that stays open so that your pets can access their own private outdoor yard whenever they see fit. These hatch doors remain open so that no pet is ever intimidated by the obstacle of operating a different type of pet door than they are used to. The hatch doors are open and secured so your pet can come and go as they please. This permits them to feel more comfortable and able to relieve themselves at any time.
2. Your Pet’s Kennel Nook is Customized to Them
We encourage you, as pet owners, to bring things from home, including special blankets your pet is accustomed to in order to make their beds feel just right. Your pet’s kennel is made as cozy and comfortable as possible for the duration of their stay. Each kennel is lined with privacy screens so that our boarders feel comfortable and secure. Your pets can sniff their neighbors and “talk” as much as they want, but there’s always a sturdy, private barrier between each dog.
3. Heated and Cooled
Our kennels are heated in the winter and cooled during the summer. Every kind of dog will be comfortable here, with no one freezing and no one overheating. Food and water are kept inside so that it never freezes or attracts insects.
4. Access to Food for as Long as Needed
We give your pet access to their food bowl for as long as they show interest in eating. Sometimes pets can be picky. Others may need more time to settle in before they eat. At Angie’s TLC Pet Boarding we’re in tune with your pet’s needs, and we’ll help them feel comfortable enough to eat their fill.
1. The best in Air Filtration
Our Pet Hotel utilizes four high-end Pet Airapy UV Fans. These fans were customized and installed for our specific space and number of boarders, and they’re on at all hours. Each fan filters through every cubic inch of air. The air passes through both a filter system and an anti-biotic, anti-fungal UV light. Airborne germs, as well as dander, hair, and dust are caught up in the filter and neutralized by the UV Light. The result is healthy, clean air for your pet for the duration of their stay. These fans also emit a consistent white noise which tends to be very calming for pets.
2. Medication Administered at No Extra Charge
As a seasoned Vet Tech, I’m comfortable administering medications to older dogs and dogs with special health needs. Other kennels will charge extra for this service, but I’m happy to keep your pup healthy at no extra charge to you.
3. Clean Kennel Nooks, Clean Outdoor Runs
My team is constantly cleaning both the inside and the outside of your pet’s space. No space (and no pet) is every wet or dirty for long. Kennels are deep cleaned in between pet boarders and are also spruced up and cleaned each day for the duration of your pet’s stay.
4. Strict Vaccination Policies
Our vaccination policies are strict so that all dogs remain healthy and happy. Each dog that comes into Angie’s TLC Pet Boarding must have updated Bordetella and canine cough vaccinations. This keeps everyone healthy. For more on vaccination policies visit our policies page.
When you bring your pet to TLC Pet Boarding, my priority is to keep them safe. Thus, I don’t offer risky “playgroups” which place strange dogs together. Instead, your pet will have one-on-one attention during playtime with one of our staff members. Your dog will never be placed with any other dog (aside from other dogs in your pet family who may be boarded together). We take great care to ensure that there will never be an opportunity for disagreements or harm.
2. Strong Fencing
Each Kennel is completely enclosed with welded, thick-gauge fencing. The wire fencing runs under each outdoor kennel run, and all kennels have roofs both indoors and outdoors. Whether a climber or a digger, your pet will stay put. Outdoor play yards have high fences and are also boarded in wire so that even the most determined pet won’t make their way out.
3. 24/7 monitoring
Since my pet hotel is a home-based business, I’m never more than steps away from a dog or cat in need. When I’m at home for meals or rest, I have a baby monitor inside the pet hotel. Your pet will always have a listening ear and help close at hand.
4. Generator Backup
Our pet hotel is backed up with generators in case of electrical outages. No matter what’s going on out in the world, your pets will be safe and comfortable with us.
