We are happy to provide your pet a home away from home when you can’t be with them.
Our 12 spacious yards are separated by fence lines and dogs who did not come together do not share a yard. An individual daily walk is also included.
Our boarders are fed twice daily, to your feeding specifications, but this can be adjusted to suit each dog’s needs at no extra charge. The kennel is fully heated and air conditioned, and also has in floor heating for extra comfort during the winter.
We also board cats and kittens! Check out our cat suites.
All of our clients are provided with:
- A minimum 4ft X 6ft immaculately clean run
- In floor heat in the winter & air conditioning in the summer for your dog’s maximum comfort
- Kuranda beds, bowls and buckets in each kennel
- Individual exercise time in one of our large, secure play yards as well as personal walks daily on our scenic cut trails through the woods
- The familiar sounds of television and radio all day (and sometimes our singing. Poor dogs.)
What should you bring for your dog’s stay?
- Your dog’s food, treats and any medication. This helps to prevent any gastric upset during your dog’s stay. We will feed and medicate your dog to your exact specifications, including dogs with special medical needs.
- Safe bed or blankets and toys from home. Having familiar things helps us to provide a comfortable environment for your pet while you are away.
- A leash and collar.
- Current vaccine certificate for your pet from your Veterinarian indicating that he or she is up-to-date on all core vaccines.
- Dogs must have the following core vaccines: Rabies, Parvo, Distemper and Bordetella (Kennel Cough**)
- Cats must have the following core vaccines: Rabies and Feline Leukemia
Hours: 7 days a week, 8:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m
- To avoid the disruption of our guests we schedule your drop off and pick up times within our hours so we have the time for each guest and their owner.
- Early or late pick up is not available as we dedicate the time outside of business hours to settle the boarders and spend time with our own dogs*
The kennel is closed between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. There will be no drop offs or pick ups during this time. No exceptions.
Please call for doggy daycare hours.
We are closed to drop offs and pick up on Christmas Day and New Years Day.
Please note: We tend to book up for Holidays quite quickly, it is suggested to make accommodations for your pet as soon as your plans have been finalized.
For the safety of our guests, we reserve the right to refuse admittance due to contagious health issues or temperament issues.
Your dog must be on a leash while travelling to and from the kennel and your vehicle, and while in the kennel.
While it is quite natural for a dog or cat to be tired for a few days after their stay with us (we have a lot on their plates to keep them happy and not pining away for you), your dog or cat should never go home from any boarding kennel wounded, limping or unhappy.
You are welcome here anytime, by appointment. Why by appointment only? The needs and schedules of our boarding dogs do come first, and your dog will be extended the same courtesy during his or her stay.
If you have any further questions, or would like to proceed with booking your pet in or touring our facility, please let us know!
**About Kennel Cough (Bordatella)
I wish it was called “off leash dog park cough” or “dog training cough”, anything but Kennel Cough. Actually, your dog can pick it up walking on the street and stopping to say hi to another dog. Kennel cough is not serious, but it is something that happens occasionally when dogs interact.
The dogs staying at FargoRidge must have current Bordatella vaccinations. Like a flu shot, a bordatella shot doesn’t guarantee that your dog won’t get kennel cough, but having been vaccinated means that your dog’s immune system is better prepared for it. A dog has to bring the virus in, it isn’t manufactured here. Please notify us if your dog has been coughing or coughed up to 14 days before your arrival.
Every precaution will be taken to ensure that your dog goes home healthy and happy; but, like sending your child to preschool, they can pick up illnesses from being in close contact with other dogs.
