Information and Guidelines

As a guest to our boarding facility, we would like to inform you of the amenities our establishment has to offer. Foremost, this includes both excellent pet care and comfort. All rooms are climate controlled and all pets are monitored daily by our well-trained staff. Our kennel staff is extremely caring and loving of the pets that stay at our facility. They treat them all like a part of their family.

Cat cottages are in a separate space with a ample room and fun hiding places. They are kept in a different area than the doggies to help keep kitty anxiety to a minimum.

If you have any questions or would like a tour of our facility, please feel free to ask!!

Our guests must be current on the vaccinations listed below to prevent and protect against infectious diseases.

Lodging areas are cleaned several times daily during the outings that the doggies receive, and cats are provided with fresh litter daily.

We also will look after your exotic pets – birds, reptiles, guinea pigs, rabbits, and ferrets. We love them all, big and small!

Upon request, our guests can be bathed during their stay. For guests staying longer than five nights, this service is complimentary.

For dogs, we have several different sized runs available. We offer Small, Large, and Extra Large sizes with Indoor and Indoor/Outdoor options. Our Small Indoor/Outdoor runs have lofts for our smaller guests. We also offer Family Units where several dogs can share the space between two Extra Large units.

CLAH Boarding Mission Statement

At Cheat Lake Animal Hospital Boarding (CLAHB), we treat your animal like the VIP (Very Important Pet) they are.  When you and your pet(s) are here, you are not our “clients”, you are our Family.  Your animal(s) will be welcomed with loving arms and compassionate hearts.  We strive to make them feel as comfortable as they are in their own homes.  Your pets are our top priority, we recognize that they are each different and unique in their own ways, and they each have their own personalities that we fully encourage them to express while staying here with us.  CLAHB is staffed by dedicated and knowledgeable professionals that take the time to get to know your animal on a personal level.  When your animal stays with us, you can be assured that their needs and accommodations will not just be met, they will be exceeded.  You are welcome to bring any personal belongings for your pet (i.e. favorite toys, blankets, beds, etc.) to help make them feel more at home.

 CLAHB offers various amenities that you can choose while your pet stays with us, in addition to the 3 times of daily activities we also offer; “Cuddle Time” (10 minutes of individual/one-on-one time with your pet), “Pamper Time” (10 minutes of brushing or combing to make them feel like a star), and “Romp Time” (10 minutes of active play with your pet).  Our facility offers a spacious outdoor courtyard where your pet can run and play with the staff as well as an indoor area for when the weather just does not want to cooperate. 

Along with providing comfort, we also strive to provide safety for your pet.  He/she will be monitored at all times when outside as well as inside their kennels.  Our facility is located directly beside our hospital, which is fully staffed 24 hours a day, adding that little bit of security for your peace of mind.  CLAHB prides itself on being your pets home away from home. Cleanliness and a well-kept facility is what we project to our families.  Our kennels are cleaned out daily and fresh food, water and blankets are always provided. 

CLAHB guarantees that your pets stay will be one that is not only pleasant, but one that is enjoyable and memorable.  Your VIP’s are our VIP’s. Your pets experience with us will leave a lasting paw print on their heart and yours.
