During our years of commercial pet boarding since 1990 we have reconsidered what pet enclosures should be and what benefit they should provide to your pet. The age-old kennel environment which employs cages, side by side chain link kennels and exercise pens has countless negative aspects that include deafening noise, warehousing pets and of course the animal stress which is associated with depression, colitis, fence fighting, and misguided anxiety aggression. These affects are not limited to just the animal residents but to employees caring for the pets as well, thus creating in many instances a high employee turnover rate.

Throughout the course of correcting these situations we have been forced to think outside the box of the pre-existing kennel business. We have reconsidered the financial needs of maintaining a standard kennel based on volume. In doing so we can prove how the same amount of income can be transformed into half of the volume of boarders. The benefits of our plan include a great reduction in overhead cost and a reduction of employee turnover coupled with few employees required to staff the operation.

Through our design process , we can design our accommodations that are both pleasing to the human eye and more importantly will provide low-stress, sanitary pet living environments that are home-like and noise-free. Our design takes into consideration not only the comfort of you pet, but more importantly the safety and security aspects of the pet’s environment. These accommodations can be built new or added as a conversion from pre-existing buildings or kennels at a personal location or a business site. We are available to review and make recommendations to your business in order to further the comfort of pets, pet owners and your employees. In addition, our designs are available for private homeowners who want their pets to be comfortable while they are at work or who may not be able to keep pets in the home due to allergies or other unforeseen circumstances.

Our concept and design process is not limited just to the physical changes of the building units but touches on psychological aspects and layouts of the design to ensure a well thought out, mistake-free design which, in the long run, will help eliminate corrective problems and cost. In other words, we do it right the first time. Our concept includes using the newest portable and most durable materials on the market creating less intensive construction cost and waste reduction. We research the raw materials and wholesale products located in your region. This results in getting the most for your money. These materials and services can be used in your design and landscape of your new facility, creating yet another cost savings to you. Our design also reduces the cleaning and sanitation needs of your operation. Your operation will then transfer from volume marketing to quality pet care. This will enable you to set your pricing and fees at a much different level. It also creates a whole new subsidizing income to your operation. We will show you how create the perks and options that clients want for their pets. Our enclosures are secure and still have the beauty of a home environment.
