who is welcome to board with you?
All dogs who are up to date on their Bordetella (Kennel Cough) Vaccine, Rabies Vaccine, & DHLPP Vaccine are always welcome to board at Francis Kennels. Puppies must have finished all 4 rounds of puppy boosters & be up to date on Rabies. Although it is not required, we do recommend the Canine Flu Vaccine. We do not discriminate against temperament or breed.
Where will my Dog stay?
Your pet will stay in a climate controlled area designed for them. Small dogs (under 15 lbs) stay in our Small Animal Room. It's also our bathing room, so our bather spends extra time talking to them and checking on them. All other canine guests stay in our Main Kennel Area, where we have indoor runs according to your dog's size. Privacy panels between each run mean your dog isn't looking at their neighbor, which makes for a more quiet environment. A stereo system playing calming music makes it feel more like home.
What about food & medications?
We will feed and/or medicate your dog at their scheduled time & dosage. We do strongly recommend bringing your pet's own food to help keep their tummy calm. If it's easier for you, we feed Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice, and you can request that at drop off. Our in house food is free of corn, wheat, & soy.
what should I bring?
We will supply your pet with plenty of bedding & bowls. Vaccination records are required at drop off, we recommend also bringing their food, toys, & treats. We will return your collar/harness/leash to you at drop off unless specified otherwise.
Our highly trained staff is equipped & experienced to care for your special needs pets. We understand that some pet's require extra, extra special care and we would love to go that extra mile. Please explain any special needs you think your pet may have at the time of making the reservation. Special needs may include, but not limited to:
Medication Injections (i.e. insulin) - $4.99 per injection
Aggressive (unable to touch, pet, walk) - $6.99 per day
Medically Fragile and/or Physically Fragile (requires assistance or a sling to be walked) - $4.99 per day

We can care for your small animals too! We have cared for rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, reptiles, birds, ducks, even fish! We can be your one stop shop for all of your pet care on your way out of town for vacation. All small animals must come in their enclosure from home.
