Because Pet Estates / Merry Lynn Kennels is a pet resort and not a kennel, we are different from your average boarding facility. Pets are not placed in a chain link cage but rather a home environment. You are able to choose from several accommodations – suites, condo units, bunkhouse or townhouses. This enables you to select where your pet will be most comfortable so that they can enjoy their vacations while you enjoy yours.
Pet CPR and First Aid This course is for students that wish to work in the pet industry or wish to acquire knowledge on how to respond in an emergency situation for pets. The course will provide both educational and practical experience in pet CPR First Aid. In this class, you will learn what you can do in the first 15-25 seconds on the scene to make a big difference for a pet.
