We have had several cases of what we and the local veterinarians believe is kennel cough (Bordetella). All dogs involved were vaccinated. I have spoken to many of our local veterinarians and they are advising that this is a very contagious illness and can spread rapidly. Bordetella is not generally a serious illness, however if you suspect your dog may be ill please keep them at home a minimum of a week and seek veterinary care. Most cases of kennel cough resolve in two weeks with or without antibiotics, this is simply a dog cold. Sometimes with the human flu, for example, the recommendations of which strain to vaccinate for are wrong and we have breakthrough illness.
A persistent dry cough is the most common symptom.Coughing through the night.Retching.Watery nasal discharge.In mild cases dogs are often active and eating normally.We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but rest assured we are using all cleaning and quarantine protocols available.If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 410-596-4969.Thank you,

It's that time again to vote for your favorites of Carroll County. We are beyond thankful that you guys voted for us as best kennel last year, and hope we have your vote again this year! We appreciate the love and support that you guys show us, we couldn't do it without you!
Due to the volume of our summer business we must insist that all reservations for boarding and daycare be made by email at least one week in advance of your dogs stay, no phone reservations will be accepted. Boarders must bring their email confirmation with them when bringing their dog for boarding. If you are not in our book and you do not have an email conformation you may be turned away.
For our daycare clients, you must also make your reservations by email, if you have a standing reservation and need to cancel please let us know 24 hours in advance as we have a waiting list. Reservations not canceled will be charged full price for the day. Dogs who show up for daycare without an email confirmation may be turned away. If we have space for your dog your dog may attend, however, there will be an additional $5.00 fee.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
