What does my dog stay in while boarding?

Our kennel is designed to give your dog a comfortable space while boarding with us. Your dog will stay in an indoor/outdoor run that is 4x6 on the inside and 8x12 on the outside. You are more than welcome to stop by and take a tour during our regular business hours. 

Is someone in the kennel 24/7?

Although we do not have someone in the kennel 24/7, we do have residents living on property. 

Does my dog get play time while boarding?

Yes! Whether your dog is friendly with other dogs or not, your dog will get play time. If friendly with other dogs, your dog will get playtime in our play yard and water park if in season. If your dog prefers alone play, we will do individual play with a kennel worker for your dog. 

Do boarding dogs get to play in the waterpark?

Of course! Our main play yard includes an inground pool and plash pad with sprinklers for all friendly dogs to play in during the warm months!

Do you offer boarding for animals other than dogs and cats?

What vaccinations does my pet need to come to Sterling Meadows?

In order to bring your pet, we will need records of the Distemper, Rabies and Bordetella for your dog. For your cat, we will need records of the Feline Distemper or Feline Leukemia and the Rabies. You may text, email or bring your records to us. 

What should I bring my pet when they go to board?

You may bring your own food or we can use ours, either way there is no additional charge. Our food is chicken based and not grain free. If that will upset your dog's stomach, we recommend you bringing your own food. Other than that, we will provide all bedding, blankets, toys and bowls. 

What do you provide for my pet while boarding?

We provide all blankets, bedding, toys and bowls for your pet while boarding. We ask that you do not bring any of these belongings. We can provide our food or you may bring your own. If you are boarding a small animal, please contact us for what to bring. 

Do you separate the small dogs from the large dogs for play time?

Yes! We separate the large and small dogs for play time. We have multiple play yards available for group play. 

How do you know all the dogs in the play group get along?

All dogs are evaluated to ensure they are friendly with dogs and people before being turned loose in a group. The dogs are constantly supervised and can be pulled in from the play group if any sign of aggression occurs. 

Do you offer any discounts off boarding?

We offer a 5% cash discount and a 5% military discount off the boarding rates.

Do you offer any long term boarding?

What does the daycare evaluation entail?

When you bring your dog for the daycare evaluation, our kennel worker will make sure your dog is first friendly with them and our other workers. Then, we will take your dog into our play yard on a leash. We are simply making sure that your dog is friendly with other dogs and people for the safety of your dog and the others. For more information check our our doggy daycare

Can my dog come for daycare if he/she is not spayed/neutered?

If your dog has not been before, we will first need to do an evaluation. If he/she passes the evaluation they are welcome to come even if not spayed or neutered. However, if your dog begins to mount the other dogs or show dominance we will ask that he/she is spayed/neutered before returning for daycare. 

What happens if my dog fails the evaluation?

If your dog does not pass the evaluation, your dog is still more than welcome to board with us and we will do individual playtime and walks.
