Located in the Moreno Valley within the Enchanted Circle, on Cerro Verde just west of Highway 64 between Eagle Nest and Angel Fire on B-6, enter 62 Cerro Verde Eagle Nest 87718 on your GPS. You'll see our Pet Pal sign on the corner of highway 64 and B-6. Not far up the road, the building is a pink-ish stucco with a silver metal roof. We have large suites/rooms, an acre of grass and trees to run in with a maximum of 6 dogs. Your dogs can play, socialize and relax, digging in the dirt and rolling in the grass is encouraged.
IF your dog can jump
over a 9 ft fence, this is not the kennel for you. It is designed so dogs can enjoy indoors and outdoors at their leisure within the confines of the building and the acreage freely without being walked on a leash, although very small dogs must be accompanied at all times . The 12' posts are buried 3' and the horse fence wire buried 2'. 9' tall fencing is left exposed from the ground. Picture available in the gallery.
Bodie, an Airedale jumped the fence like a cannonball going after a bear who was thinking about entering and came back the next morning just in time to be picked up.
"Oh yeah", he said,
"Bodie hates bears"
The one acre yard has never been sprayed, wild grasses trimmed occasionally, Juniper and Ponderosa trees, wild Chamomile are all enjoyed by the bigger dogs all day long, the dog doors let them choose when to go in or out. At night all doors are closed and dogs stay inside in their apartments, on furniture or dog beds. We have never had fleas here, it may be too cold for them. (?)
Please bring your dogs' food with their names and eating routine written on a piece of paper or on the container itself. Please read them over and make sure they're easily understood. A refrigerator is here for food if necessary. We provide stainless steel bowls for your dogs and beds but if you'd like to bring your dog's own bed, that's fine. You can also park crates here along with your motor home or boat and extra vehicles for no extra charge. No charge for administering medicine but pills must be wrapped in food such as chilled peanut butter, meat, cheese, pill pockets, etc. and kept in a marked bag. If not, a handling charge of $10.00 a day will be added - we would like to avoid any and all contact with medications.
We have also never had a case of Bordatella here in the 26 years we've been open. All shots if you so choose to give them to your dog must be done at LEAST 2 weeks before their reservation. Some dogs get very violent adverse reactions from the "kennel cough" vaccine.
Female dogs must be spayed unless she is on schedule for at least 2 years. If she does come into heat during her stay, you will be charged an extra $20 per day. We do not take females in full blown heat.
We can text pictures to you twice daily for an extra $5 a day. The first two are free. See gallery
Please bring your dog's food and any instructions but leave your bowls at home, All bowls are washed daily and yours may get mixed up with ours, be drying in the kitchen or in their rooms when you come to pick them up. Also try to bring ONLY the things he'll need for his stay
