Each of our boarding dogs has their own spacious kennel, each with attached 10’ outside run to allow access to fresh air and sunshine. We have two separate kennel areas: one for our larger breeds and one to accommodate our smaller dogs who might be intimidated by our larger guests.
Our kennel area is clean, bright and comfortable, and equipped with fire, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Music is played throughout the kennel area, and nightlights are provided at night.
We are protected by NCC Security Systems, and to help ensure the cleanest environment for your pet we are equipped with PetAirapy, a 24 hour air sanitizing system. Our kennel is heated in winter, and we have central air for summer months.
Misty Meadows offers daily leashed walks on four groomed walking trails on 66 acres through meadows and woods. There are 3 separate fenced in play yards for “free play” offering a kiddie pool for those hot days, ball/frisbee games and agility toys. . Our larger guests can run and get plenty of exercise in our 50’ X 80’ play yard, always with supervision and interaction.
Our smaller pens – to accommodate our smaller guests - are perfect for sniffing, running or relaxing in the sun.
Our separate cat room is bright and sunny, featuring a large picture window with a window seat ideal for an afternoon nap or bird or squirrel watching at our feeding station just outside.
Our feline guests are visited several times daily and during that time, play time and/or cuddle time is offered for those that are interested.

||"My name is Lucky the Westie, and I love Misty Meadows Grooming. When I arrive at the shop I look like the "junk yard dog" but when I leave I look like "the Caesar Dog" that my mom and dad love! I love being pampered and they are all so good to me. Its a great place for us to be spoiled for the day and get treats too! " Love, "Lucky" and Jan and Dave Marino West Monroe, NY
Polices & Guidelines
We suggest scheduling a visit with your pet before you kennel him/her. This way we may get accquainted – our goal is to make your pets stay with us happy and stress free. ( however we do reserve the right to refuse any dog that we feel will not board well.)
We will provide cots and bedding, dishes and treats, but we ask that you provide your dogs own food. Changing your pets diet may cause stomach upsets. If you choose not to provide their own food, we will feed lifes abundance holistic pet food.
We supply dry cat food- but if your cat is on a soft food diet we ask that you provide this.
Please do not feed your pet before coming to the kennel. Excitement can cause upset stomachs. When you pet is first dropped off we will take them on a walk – this helps to calm them and they get familiar with their surroundings.
Your pet is welcome to bring beds, toys, favorite blankets and treats, anything from home that will be a comfort.
Please- when dropping off or picking up your pet- keep them on a leash or in a pet carrier for their safety.
ALL VACCINES MUST BE CURRENT AND PROOF MUST BE PROVIDED OR WE WILL BE UNABLE TO BOARD YOUR PET!
