As proud members of the
International Boarding & Pet Services Association,
we take seriously the health and safety of
all our canine guests.
Canine Health and Safety
Put Into Practice:
Staff Education and Certification
All of our employees are required to become certified through the IBPSA education program, which stresses the importance of cleanliness, dog safety and care, emergency health protocols, and vaccination standards for their own personal pets to eliminate outside exposure to common conditions such as kennel cough, distemper, parvo, bordetella, and more. Following certification we strictly supervise cleaning routines and care standards to ensure the safest possible environment for your canine companions!
Security Fencing and Protocols
Our property has professionally trained staff on-site 24/7, 365 days a year to ensure the safety of our guests at all times. We have installed security fencing and two-step entries around all of our outdoor play yards, and although our climate controlled indoor kennels are spacious and open aired, they boast 8 foot walls with additional security walkways between them and the outdoor play yards. If your canine is one of those "escape artists", you can rest easy knowing that they are safe, secure, and supervised at Hillside. Within our outdoor play yards are several covered and secure doggie gazebos to allow our guests shade and fresh air during warm days, and comforting barriers for those who are uncertain about sharing space with others.
Strict Vaccination Standards and Safety Screening
In addition to requiring regular vaccinations of our employees' personal pets at home, we of course keep regular account of our guests' vaccination records as well! With the help of our wonderful PetExec system, our staff has all the tools necessary to make sure every canine guest that walks through our doors has a clean bill of health before every visit. No if's, and's, or but's! We also do extensive screening for behavior compatibility between our canine guests to make the best educated decisions for communal playtime. 🌈Worried about being away from your canine companion? We also send updates directly to your phone about how your dog is doing throughout the day!
