BOUTIQUE BOARD AND CARE: We offer personalized board and care for your canine family members. We offer both in-home care and kenneled care. With both, dogs have free time, play and walks, as well a lot of love and attention. All dogs are fed separately and have access to clean water at all times. All dogs are required to be UTD on their vaccinations. We offer board and care for Willow Kane Labrador puppies before their vaccinations are completed in their first year with arrangements. We offer care for up to two families at a time, and no more than three dogs. We are experienced In administering medications orally and by injection (sub-q or inter muscular). We follow a stringent sanitizing protocol to help ensure the dogs in our care are safe and healthy. As part of our individual care, we offer board and care services for in-tact male and female dogs. We understand the importance for offering separated care for in-tact dogs due to the risk of pregnancy. There is no additional charge for this service.
Hours: You can drop-off and pick up starting at 7:00am to 7:00pm. Your charge is based on a 24-hour day, with 4-hour buffer , within our normal drop-off/ pick-up hours. This means if you drop off on Wednesday at 8:00am and pick up on Sunday prior to 12:00pm your charge will be for 4-days. If you pick up after 12:00pm, you will be charged for that day meaning it will be a 5-day charge. Please let me know if you have any questions. Select and complete this survey prior to care.
Cost: $45 per day *Willow Kane Farm Labrador families receive a $10 per day discount
We accept Credit/Debit cards, Venmo or Cash for Board and Training Services.
TRAINING: All training and family support provided is positive, we do not train using corporeal punishment. Dogs, like children, will seek attention either negative or positive. We reward good decisions with positive physical and verbal attention. We discourage undesirable behavior with confident verbal commands, patience and physical assistance (such as backing a dog up who advances during a sit or lay command without release). We believe that your canine companion needs a confidant pack leader to feel safe and that leads to confidant and desirable behavior. It is our experience that a dogs behavior gives a clear insight in to what they are feeling from the relationship they have with the humans in their life, which may be anxiety, need to protect, fear, uncertainty or lack of confidence. Our goal is to teach you the appropriate communication skills for you to create a healthy relationship for you and your canine family member, as well as helping you to understand their communication style. Our priority objective is to support you in creating a positive relationship for both you and your canine companion to ensure you have a happy lifetime bond.
