kennelvOur deluxe spacious suites are 4’x6’ in size. Your dog will enjoy his/her cozy suite that is enclosed on three sides and has views of the outside world through windows across the room. This allows them to view the natural sunlight and keeps their internal time clock in sync. At night, we draw the curtains and soft night lights illuminate their surroundings.
