What will a typical day look like for your pet boarding with us?
Dogs (Canine Patients)
Every morning the dogs are let outside for fresh air before breakfast. While they are outside stretching their legs, your dogs room is cleaned, disinfected, and fresh linen laid out for them.
After breakfast it's time to play! Each dog is let out for social play with our highly trained staff. If the weather is wet and rainy, your dog has full access to our indoor play room to exercise and stay dry.
Your dog will also have supervision throughout their entire stay with us – both during play and while they rest.
Dinner is served every day with a smile, with one last walk before bedtime.
Cats (Feline Patients)
Feline patients (cats) are cared for with love by our trained staff.
Your cat or kitty will be fed as per your specifications, to ensure their routine is seamless from at home.
Every day, throughout the day, litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected.
Additionally, we regularly refresh linens and clean your kitty's room while they relax until your return.
Hillcrest took very good care of Onslow and Daisy while I was out of town for two weeks! The dogs had a blast, and they came back to me groomed, relaxed and happy.
