LOOK NO FURTHER - BLUE MOUNTAIN KENNELS IS YOUR PETS' HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
Blue Mountain Kennels is a full service dog boarding kennel and cattery located in Cape Town.
We live on the property so there is always somebody there to take care of your pet. We believe our pets are family and at Blue Mountain Kennels we will treat your pets as part of our family too! As pet lovers ourselves, we take your pet's care very seriously. That's why we think of ourselves as so much more than just a boarding service. If you are going out of town for just a night or for several months you can be assured that we are here to provide love and support for your furry family member while you are away.
All pets are given individual attention. If your pet requires us to feed a special diet or medications, just let us know and we can assit.
To continually provide excellent care for your pets we maintain strict safety measures. Therefore, we require all pets staying with us be up-to-date on their necessary vaccinations. When booking your stay, we will review these vaccinations with you.
Our team will provide your pets with the services that offer the most value to their life and wellbeing. We have different types of social activities for your dog to participate in while staying with us. From group play with similar sized and temperament dogs, to specialized puppy time for your new family member. Social activities allow your dog to interact and spend time with other dogs in a safe, monitored environment.
SAFETY AND COMFORT
At Blue Mountain Kennels your pet will be in a comfortable and safe environment. We know that it can often be distresssing for some pets to be away from home and their family, therefore we make sure our team goes the extra mile to supervise all of our pets, making sure that they are relaxed and happy. The kennels and cattery are safely secured to make sure no unwanted guests can get in.
We have dealt with all types and breeds of cats and dogs over the years. Our staff have decades of combined experience caring for our clients' pets, managing diets, facilitating physical activity, and overseeing their interactions in group settings.
PASSIONATE ABOUT PETS
Our team is made up of of enthusiastic, passionate pet lovers who enjoy coming to work every day and giving your pets a positive experience. Once you drop off your pet with us, you can expect them to get as much play and attention into their schedule as they could ever want.
WHAT A DAY LOOKS LIKE AT OUR KENNELS
Dogs are gregarious animals and love nothing better than a good bark of excitement in chorus with all the others in the kennel. They need activity, interaction and fun in their lives, not squeaky clean isolation from their companions.Each morning (6 am) every dog gets out of their boarding suite into the exercise runs. Running the "gauntlet" past the other kennels provides excitement for all. Dogs are then returned to their kennel for feeding, with individual supervision where appropriate.
After a quiet period to let the food go down, we embark on the "cleaning run". Dogs are let out again whilst their kennels are vacuumed and scrubbed where necessary. We do not use hoses to clean the kennels. This soaks the kennels unnecessarily and traumatises the dogs. Instead we use wet and dry vacuum cleaners. When a dog goes home the kennels are scrubbed, disinfected and fumigated and allowed to dry, ready for the next dog.
We insist on a quiet time between 12 noon and 3:30 pm for the benefit of both dogs and staff! In the afternoon we have time to play with those dogs that require special stimulation or exercise.
All dogs are fed two meals a day, early morning and again at the end of the afternoon cleaning session.
The kennels are usually closed down at around 6 pm when the dogs, tired after a day of activity go surprisingly quiet overnight. We leave the radio on to blanket out the noises of the night. A good night´s sleep is usually had by all.
