Cher Car Kennels offers the finest in indoor/outdoor facilities for your pet. We are located IN THE COUNTRY, with farm fields and horse pastures as our nearest neighbors. Our secluded property offers a vacation retreat where your canine friend is relaxed with constant sounds of nature surrounding them.Your pet has their own private 216 square foot indoor/outdoor run.The outside portion is a full 30 feet long, and a spacious 6 feet wide. Your pet also has its own indoor 6 foot by 6 foot area inside our fan cooled or heated building. Your pet has the freedom to roam and explore in and out of their private outdoor run 24 hours a day, so they can maintain the same elimination schedule they have at home.
Multiple pets? No Problem! Many of our owners prefer their pets to “room” together, just as they do at home.Our spacious kennels ensure that your pets have ample room to exercise, play, and just plain hang out. We can separate your pets at feeding time if you prefer, and combine them again when finished.
The kennel is surrounded by an additional chain link enclosure, both for the safety and security of your pet, and also to provide a “turn out” play yard for individual use. Extra individualized services unique to your pet (or custom board and care packages for long term boarders) can be designed to satisfy your pet's need for extra individual attention and exercise. These additional services can include playtime with other dogs, walks to the pond and swimming, ball play, light training and other amenities based on each client's preference. Fees for individualized "PLAYCARE" sessions for your dog conducted by one of our trainers is $10 per day (in addition to normal boarding costs.) We also offer “Boarding School” Training programs designed to help tweak behavior skills or teach new ones while you are away. Special needs pets are not a problem either. Many of our boarders require oral medications, eye drops or ear washes... or simply need the benefit of a ramp to help them maneuver in and out the dog door. We eagerly provide special service for special dogs, both young and old!
Besides all the wonderful amenities we offer for your pet, the greatest benefit our clients claim is NO SET BUSINESS HOURS! That's right, if you need to drop your pet off at midnight, that’s okay with us. We offer a unique “self serve” option to our customers, so you never have to rush to the kennel before closing, or pay extra because your plane was delayed.
How can we do this? We live on the property so access is easy. We also know that your pet is an important part of your family and our 11-run "boutique" size kennel guarantees personalized service for every pet that we care for. We employ 2 kennel attendants (1 full time & 1 part time) to provide daily care for the dogs. They clean and sanitize the indoor/outdoor runs, feed and administer prescribed medications, exercise, bathe and trim nails. They interact with clients as they pick up and drop off their dogs for boarding, provide “playcare” for individual dogs as requested and also assist in the training of our Canine Boarding School (in-house) clients.
Your pets can "room together" if you wish... just like at home!

Does your dog need a bath?
We also offer dog bathing and grooming services for your canine companion. Nothing fancy with trimming and sculpting, just a good old fashioned bath and air dry with brushing. The cost for bathing your dog is $45 and this also includes nail trimming. If you dog needs a nail trim only, the cost is $10.
Why not let your dog have a bit of a spa day, and be clean and fresh smelling when you return from your trip.
Please request a bath when you make your boarding reservations. Dogs will be groomed the day before your anticipated return date to allow for "early a.m." pickups.
