What is Pet Friendly?

gaks best kennel 2021

Green Acres Kennel Shop is a pet friendly, force-free, fear-free and pain-free facility. We meet or exceed the standards set in the Position Statements of The Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and the American Animal Hospital Association AAHA 2015 Canine and Feline Behavior Management Guidelines.

While there are many decent boarding facilities that truly love the animals they care for, we believe it is important that pet guardians realize not all people in the pet care business are "pet friendly." In some cases the abuse does not stem from ill will, rather it is simply a matter of a lack of education about dogs and cats. Regardless of the reasons however, the outcome for the animal is a negative one. The following are a few examples of what we consider to be unacceptable and unethical behavior on the

Playtime is something that all dogs love and a daily playtime is included as part of our standard boarding rate. Additional playtimes are optional.

Playtime sessions take place in one of our two outside, fenced, play yards. All play sessions are 100% supervised by a trained pet care technician and there are never more than 5 dogs per technician; your dog will never be left unsupervised with dogs that are not part of its family. If your dog is not comfortable with other dogs, individual playtime is available.

Boarding Requirements


To ensure the health of all pets staying at Green Acres, we will need to see proof of vaccination for rabies for all cats and dogs, and either proof of vaccination or proof of immunity for distemper and canine cough for your dog and proof of vaccination or immunity for distemper for your cat. Proof of immunity would require a letter from your veterinarian stating that titer tests are performed on a routine basis and that your pet has sufficient immunity.  In an effort to make the check in process more efficient and to prevent any delays in your travel plans, a day or two prior to your pet’s arrival we will attempt to obtain this information from your veterinarian. Please note however, that not all veterinarians will release this information so be sure to have it available should it be needed.


All pets entering Green Acres are checked for fleas and must be flea free before they

Boarding Questions

Why is boarding such a good option for pets?

When traveling, people often go places where pets are not allowed such as restaurants, museums and other attractions. For the pet, this means staying behind in an unfamiliar environment or being left in the car, particularly perilous in the warmer months and climates. Traveling with a pet has the additional risks of the pet getting scared and running off, or becoming sick. Changes are usually very stressful to a pet, especially cats, and traveling is a constantly changing situation. Boarding facilities provide a safe, caring environment with a staff trained to care for your pet and monitor their health while keeping them secure. A quality boarding facility gives a pet's guardian peace of mind, knowing that their pets are safe and comfortable.

Why is it not a good idea to leave the pets with friends or family members?
