Boarding: Day & Overnight
You can trust us for your pet boarding needs. While you are out of town or otherwise unable to care for your pets, they are welcome to board in Falconbridge’s indoor, climate controlled boarding facility with large runs and spacious condos. Our medical hospitalization area is separate from our boarding areas to protect our boarders from exposure to illness.
We feed our boarders the same premium quality food that we feed our own pets. We are also happy to feed your pet a special diet if requested. Simply bring your own food along when you bring your pet for boarding.
You may also arrange for our staff to administer any needed medications or supplements while your pet is boarding. Please bring all medications and supplements in their original, labeled container.
Our Happy Campers program for boarders includes 2 optional add-on services, the Zen of Zylkene and Breakfast Sprinkles. Both of these options are available for cats and dogs. They are designed to help boarders have the best experience possible while staying with us.
Zen of Zylkene provides your pet with a dose of Zylkene each morning. Zylkene is a non-sedating, calming supplement that can help dogs and cats cope with the change in routine that comes with boarding. In clinical studies, Zylkene significantly improved exploratory behavior, social contact with others, and sleep patterns. Zylkene can help your pet rest easy and enjoy their stay.
Breakfast Sprinkles are a probiotic sprinkled on the pet’s breakfast. Probiotics help maintain a healthy balance in the digestive system, and support the immune system. Breakfast Sprinkles will help your pet feel their best while staying with us, and help those pets with a nervous tummy stay feeling good.
We welcome clients and their pets to tour our boarding facilities. Holiday times book quickly, so please make your boarding reservations in advance of your trip.
