Your pet's home away from home

About Our Boarding

Here at Top Notch Kennels we pride ourselves on treating your pet with the care and love that we provide for our own pets - everyone is our favorite here! Our boarding services include maintaining the cleanest living quarters possible, keeping a wellness log of your pup’s entire stay and keeping in close contact with each owner during their pets time with us. Additionally, your pet is provided with several opportunities to "do their business" outside in our spacious and shaded private yards. Our property is located away from traffic and noise, providing a safe and quiet atmosphere. Your pampered pet and our other honored guests can roam and stretch their legs throughout the day in one of over 20 large and private yards. Boarding also includes feeding your pet to your specifications, making sure that they get fresh water several times a day, providing them with fresh bedding, administering medications if necessary, and making sure that each and every night they have a treat before they go to bed. If your pet has a sibling, we will accommodate them staying together in the same suite to keep each other company.

Remember Top Notch Philosophy:
As many of you know TNK is known for striving for a home-like atmosphere.  A wonderful place to send your pups on vacation, our facility is settled on a 10 acre secluded piece of land where the outside is endless. We could have hundreds of dogs in our daycare however, we truly believe allowing less is so much more. We have a maximum of 5 dogs per playgroup at all times and do not believe in having more. Our groups are run in conjunction to our boarding schedule as well. Daycare is not just about letting your dog run and play all day without any form of structure ONLY to tire them out.  If you choose Top Notch Kennel’s Daycare you will be giving your dog structure, safety and excellent caring staff!
