I personally spend time with your pet in the enclosed "free" area. Your pet will enjoy the "free" area at the very least, four times a day. Off-leash they can roam, sniff, pee/poop, run and play. Unless weather related, I do not place time limits, in fact they let me know when they have had enough. I do not commingle other dogs. It is always just your pet(s) and me.
Usually, the first 12 to 24 hours is an adjustment period for every pet that checks-in. It is during this time period that they don't know if they can trust me, I don't know if I can trust them, but when the tail goes up and their guard goes down it is a wonderful moment. I let them approach me in order for this to happen and it truly makes me smile to witness your pet blossom and realize this isn't such a bad place after all. From that moment until you arrive to take them home, their stay becomes a pleasurable experience.
I hope the information I have provided on this site helps you make your decision to choose Chesterfield Kennels "where your dog stays and plays while you are away".
