Some key points to remember:

  • Play Time at the Kennel - Each dog has a quiet time at midday and play time in the afternoon.  Our afternoon play time consists of selecting three to four dogs of similar size and personality to participate in a supervised group environment.
  • All dogs which stay with at our kennel must have an updated immunization record and an attending veterinarian.
  • Any dog that arrives at Absecon Pet Center carrying fleas or ticks won't leave with them; dogs showing signs of these pests will be dipped before coming in contact with other dogs.
  • The facility is completely indoors, and the dogs are not exposed to the weather, heat, cold, parasites, fleas, ticks, flies, or mosquitoes.
  • At your request, you dog can be walked every day in an area specially treated for fleas and ticks.
  • Each dog is walked 4 times per day and fed twice per day.  While we do not require the owner to supply their pet's food, we do encourage continuing a pet's current diet.  If an owner prefers, we will use our Iams Lamb and rice dry food and Mighty Dog canned food.  We also have refrigeration and a micro waving service available for those who which to supply pre-prepared meals for their pet.
