Services & Rates.

Boarding


We provide Open/Group Boarding here at McCann's Canine Care. I converted my two car garage into a comfy doggy dorm, where dogs play, sleep and hang out together. From their dorm, they have 24-hour direct access to a large, safely fenced in area. We have crates of varying sizes for dogs who are crate trained and comfortable dog beds and blankets are also provided. Twice daily romps in my large, safely enclosed dog pasture are included.

Boarding and Play Care Requirements


We are committed to making sure your dog has the most positive experience possible while in our care. Therefore, we have strict rules in place to make sure everyone remains safe, healthy and happy.

Our Process:

  1. Schedule a meet and greet with Audrey. This is a walking evaluation with you, your dog and Audrey (no other dogs will be in attendance).
  2. We will contact you regarding the evaluation via email after the meet and greet.

Our Requirements:

  • Dogs must NOT HAVE AGGRESSION ISSUES OF ANY KIND.  No exceptions.

Note:  If your dog consistently has issues with other dogs at the dog park or if your dog consistently has issues with other dogs visiting your home, this is not the right environment for your dog.  If your dog has ongoing medical issues that cause the dog a lot of pain, this may cause your dog to be more sensitive to other dogs and people.

  • Dogs must be healthy with current vaccinations.  Copy of said vaccinations must be provided by commencement of services.
  • Dogs who have highly anxious or nervous personalities are not permitted.
  • Dogs who are “escape artists” are not permitted.
  • No toy or small breeds.  Dogs should be at least 25-30 lbs. plus.
  • Dogs must be at least 6 months of age and either neutered or spayed.  No exceptions.
  • We recommend dogs be on a flea and tick repellent program.  If your dog is not currently on one, please discuss this with your veterinarian.
  • During certain times of the year when foxtails and burrs are everywhere, we recommend a “summer cut” if your dog has long or curly hair.  This cut keeps fur around the paws, face, ears and underbelly shorter, so there’s less chance of foxtails and burrs embedding into the skin.

Thank you for considering McCann’s Canine Care for your dog’s play care and boarding needs!
