A Special Place for Special Dogs
Tealwood offers a brand new boarding facility dedicated to keeping your devoted companion happy, healthy and safe while he visits. And the key to the "happy" is providing an extra level of individual attention to every dog ... like a surrogate mother, substituting for the TLC he is accustomed to at home. It's amazing how quickly most dogs adjust if someone makes them feel secure, and many come back with tails wagging, anxious to see their friends again.
After growing up with multiple dogs, cats and even a monkey named "Maynard", and 15+ years as a responsible breeder of show quality Labrador Retrievers, no one understands better than I how special your dog is to you and your family. A dog is not "just a dog", he or she is the family member who always welcomes us with unconditional love, senses and cares about our every feeling and gives us a reason to smile ... even when life in general doesn't. Not to say there aren't moments that try our patience, but the rewards of having such a devoted companion are so much greater than the effort. Much like raising a child, although our dogs never push us to borrow the car and stay out late, do they?
Always in the back
of my mind is to put forth the extra effort to treat each and every dog as I
would want my own treated (and my own are pretty spoiled!!!). And all
the staff at Tealwood Kennel endorse this policy and are natural "dog
people" as well as very efficient, dedicated employees. It is
heartwarming to see how many dogs are so happy to come back and visit again!

REQUIRED VACCINATIONS (for boarding):
REQUIRED VACCINATIONS (for boarding):
must be either on a lead or carried in and out of the facility.
Although we're here caring for your dog 14
or more hours a day, 7
days a week, we have specific opening and closing times. YOU
MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT
and we ask that you
arrive at the appointed time so
we can schedule our many other chores and be prepared for your arrival.
If you arrive unexpected, you may have to wait until we are able to adjust our
schedule and greet you. Please leave your dog in your car and wait in
the kennel office; do not enter the kennel area without our staff; please do
not come to the house ... that is my home.
drop-offs can sometimes be accommodated for emergencies; an additional
after-hours fee may apply. If you call with an emergency situation,
please leave a message to that effect and your call will be returned as soon
VETERINARY CARE: Your dog's health will be closely monitored while he visits. Any medications you bring will be administered on a timely basis and documented. If, in the opinion of experienced staff, it appears your dog is in need of veterinary examination or services, such services will be provided by your veterinarian if possible, or by another local veterinarian. Owner agrees to be financially responsible for any necessary veterinary care and/or medications.
GROOMING, BATHING, FLEA AND TICK DIPS: We
normally can schedule to groom and/or bathe your dog while he's staying with
us ... or you can schedule an appointment at other times. Bathing and dips can be done
almost any day (but by appointment); grooming that involves clipping
and/or a lot of de-matting or scissoring needs to be scheduled well in
advance; our groomer is not here every day but we'll try to accommodate your
We encourage you to eliminate fleas and ticks before you bring your dog in to board, or schedule us for a flea/tick dip to be done upon arrival. If your dog is found to have fleas and ticks, he/she will be bathed and dipped at your expense to protect the other boarders from infestation.
We will be happy to provide references including most of the local
veterinarians who've gotten to know us well ... personally, as well as how we
operate our facility and care for your dogs.
We do not
specify any extra charges for administering medications or special feedings as
some kennels do, and we simply expect a number of dogs to have some accidents
in their runs. But we may have to add additional fees for dogs that
require an extraordinary amount of care and time (i.e. difficult
administration of medications, constant accidents in run and laundering of
bedding, etc.) We also will have to charge for repair of damages that a
dog may cause and any extra expenses that may be incurred such as trips to the
vet or stores for special needs.

After years of research, we recommend and sell the
PREMIUM EDGE pet food line ...
premium food with real meat protein (no by-products or fillers)
and digestible whole grain carbohydrates, fortified with
the proper balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids for good skin and coat
condition, glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy joints and cartilage, and
balanced vitamins and minerals ... and it is one of the most palatable foods
A quality food with high digestibility means you feed less,
get more nutrition, better health and less stool
to pick up. Ask us for more information, brochures and samples.
