Award Winning Cage-Free Boarding
If you are looking for quality pet care for your best friend, look no further than Sitting Pretty.
Each night, our hand-selected group of friendly dogs settles in for a sound night's sleep at Sitting Pretty, their home away from home. Your dog will be supervised, cuddled, tucked in at night, and fed according to your specifications. Sitting Pretty knows what it takes to keep your pet happy as can be while you are away.
An overnight stay at Sitting Pretty is unlike anything your dog has ever experienced. It's akin to a happy slumber party where our guests can enjoy the companionship of their friends with 24-hour care. Our owner lives in the cottage house, and for dogs in need of extra attention, we offer the premium option for them to stay in our owner's residence as availability allows.
Dogs are social pack creatures by nature; they thrive when they are allowed to frolic, play and nap with each other. All of our boarding guests enjoy a full day of daycare at no additional charge. We wouldn't have it any other way. After a full day of fun, freedom, and socialization, each of our guests settle in for a contented night's sleep.
We are cage-free, providing individual dog beds and cots to our overnight guests in our multiple indoor rooms. Our guests, small and large, feel at ease and at home.
Our guests have direct access to our backyard until at least 9:00pm each night for potty visits. Doors to our backyard are open before 6:00am daily.
Meal time is a peaceful time at Sitting Pretty. Supervised meals are provided from our doggie kitchen, the Bistro. We feed in groups of one to four based upon each dog's eating behavior and in raised stainless steel bowls.
Morning mealtime begins by 7:30 am with a second late afternoon mealtime around 4:30 pm. Owners are required to provide food for their dog. If your dog requires oral medication or supplements, we will administer them at no additional charge. However, there is a $10/day surcharge for insulin and other types of injections.
If your dog is boarding with us, please prepare your dog's food and any supplements or medication as follows:
Measure out the adequate amount of food your dog will need for their meals during their stay, and add two extra days in case of an emergency or spillage.
If enough food is not supplied, we will provide food at a starting rate of $3 per meal.
No need to bag the food per meal. We use measuring cups and will transfer your dog's food to a food-safe container specifically designated for your dog.
Write your dog's first and last names on the food bag along with the amount to feed per meal.
Do not send scoops, bowls, can covers, or other items you want returned -- we have all of these items.
Dogs needing supplements or medication, the following is required:
Bag each meal individually and add the necessary medication/supplement to each bag.
Write on the main bag that you have provided medication/supplements.
Include a separate sheet listing your dog's first and last name, and the names of the medication/supplements that you have included with their food.
Notify us at drop-off that you have included medication/supplements. We will want to review it with you.
or Den Kennel
We recognize that some dogs are more comfortable sleeping alone, crated, or in a secluded area. We are happy to accommodate this with one of our spacious crates.
Sitting Pretty was built on pet-friendly values. After a full day of play and sunshine at doggie daycare, we end the day with a bit of TV and crash out in the living room or office. Some dogs will prefer to sleep in a crate, on the couch, or in front of the sliding door, but others will cuddle up in a bed. We do our best to mimic your routine so they are at their most comfortable.
Therapeutic Care for special dogs
Stress can lower a dog's resistance to disease or cause other problems that might not occur under normal circumstances in a familiar home setting. We offer stress-free home dog boarding for small, sensitive, or senior dogs. We do our best to follow the same routine as you do in your home or as your veterinarian prescribes.
Boarding an older pet when you go on a trip can be quite stressful for you and your pet. Just like with senior citizens, older dogs can become set in their ways and are used to certain routines -- we maintain the routines and medication schedule your pet follows at home.
Sitting Pretty offers surgery recovery treatment when your pet is not able to stay in the comfort of their own home. We will provide special attention to a pet who is recovering from surgery or who is on medication. Sitting Pretty is who you call when you want more than a standard dog boarding kennel.
Sitting Pretty can accommodate well-behaved dogs that are unaltered, however we only accept them if you plan to neuter/spay them. If an unaltered female is our guest, we do not board unaltered males. Unaltered dogs are considered special needs canine guests and require a higher level of supervision, and we charge as such. Rates for unaltered dogs are by quote.
Puppy Care (6 weeks-12 months)
Puppies are accepted as special needs canine guests. The parvovirus vaccination is a requirement.
We understand this special addition to your family requires lots of TLC and extra nurturing to ensure that they are on the right track to becoming a happy and healthy dog. That’s why we have developed a unique Puppy Program providing the essentials your puppy needs during this crucial stage of development. Our program welcomes puppies who have completed their full series of vaccinations. It is a specialized system which helps to watch over your "little one" with an endless amount of loving attention, one-on-one handling, individualized care, and hands-on activities. Puppies are considered special needs and we charge as such. Rates for puppies are by quote.
