Dog kennel vs non kennel boarding

Several years ago I found myself in an emergency situation.  I needed to go to Roanoke and have a health procedure done and was given little notice.  My world started spinning and at the top of the list was,  what about my dog?  My baby had never stayed outside a day in her life.  She had never stayed alone a day in her life.  She had however stayed in a kennel and since she was a rescue dog and had already spent her younger life at the dog pound, I didn't really want to board her in a kennel.  I think kennel's have there place in dog care but for my spoiled pound puppy I wanted to explore other boarding options.

I had heard of pet sitting and non kennel boarding.  However,  it was Easter and I only knew of a couple and they were full and I had no time to find other solutions.  I was fortunate enough to find a friend that could visit a couple times a day and let her out,  feed her and make her comfortable,  but she was an older dog and I'm pretty sure that is why that worked out ok.  When she was younger that would never have worked.  I worried the whole time I was gone about her and sent my husband back home as soon as we could to stay with her rather than me.  That was tough. 

Years has passed since that experience,  and I have retired from the job that I held for the past 30 years.  I decided that if I had to start my life over I would pick a job that I love and provide a service that I know that I would have wanted in the same situation.  I am so happy to begin providing non kennel boarding service to the Bluefield, Princeton, WV and Bluefield  Va , Tazewell area.

I hope I can ease your stress when You need to be away from your pet and make your dogs experience staying at Sutton Place Pet Boarding a fun one.  We don't charge extra for walks, treats, baths or love.  I provide a hassel-free experience in a clean, home environment.  Look forward to working with you.
