From a very young age Karen has dreamed about building a doggie hotel. Kaycee's Kritters is situated on 5 ½ acres of land. We have all sorts of wide open farmland which adds extra entertainment and scenery for our visitors.
We know this is not home, but we hope to make your pets stay away from you as easy as possible for them. We have a few practices in place to help us accomplish this. Before leaving we will work with you to build a stay plan. We realize that you know your pet better then anyone so at drop off we will gather all the information we can to help us make the stay as comfortable as possible. Feel free to fill out our Stay Plan form ahead of time to save time. Our first goal is to keep your pet's routine as close to home as possible. We will collect all feeding and medication schedules to keep things on track. We ask that you bring enough food for the stay as a change in diet can cause stomach upset. Our second goal is to make the stay fun. Each guest is given a temperament analysis, which will help us to plan play times and extracurricular. We find that most of our clients are wonderful at play with others, so we usually allow everyone out of their rooms to play and romp with us as we work through our day in the shop. They generally chase and play with each other running in and out of the dog doors all morning long which usually then results in an afternoon nap to recharge their batteries for round two and by the time bedtime rolls around everyone is tired and ready for bed. If we happen to have any guests who are not quite as adventurous, we generally do timed play out so everyone gets a chance to run and hang out with us.
Currently, Kaycee's has rooms ranging from 40-80 sq ft. Each room has a window and a pet door, giving your pet lots of sunshine and free access to their private outdoor run. All doors are left open all day and are only locked at night for safety when everybody is tucked into bed with a special treat (upon owner approval). Our staff is trained in animal care, so we are familiar with administering medication, and all forms of feeding (including raw). Our staff also consists of animal lovers so hugs and attention are handed out freely.

It is very important to us that we make your pets stay here as calm and enjoyable as possible. We have a certain routine here and our visitors get used to our routine and rely on the structure. To keep everything consistent and simple, we do drop offs and pick ups within our allowed times. This allows us to plan our day accordingly. There are quite a few events within our day that need our undivided attention. Some of which are spoiling our guests with walks, playtimes, and baths. Having timed windows allows us to have everything ready for you and devote the time we need to thoroughly plan out your stay. You will be asked to chose a window at the time of booking. If plans change feel free to call us and we can reschedule you to an earlier or later window.
**Our windows for drop off and pick up are
8-11am & 5-7pm
Unfortunately, we have a strict no people policy after close. There will be NO drop offs or pick ups after 8pm or before 8am. This allows us to keep things on schedule. Our night time consists of a wind down time after 8 which ends with treats (owner approved) and bedtime. This structure is very important for our guests good nights sleep.
To maintain our calm, balanced, safe environment we will no longer be taking beds and personal belongings into our hotel. If there is nothing here that belongs to anyone there is nothing for anyone to fight over. We have beds, dishes and toys here and the difference is they belong to us so are not worth protecting. Our other reason for this change is that some dogs get destructive during their stay and we would rather them destroy our stuff rather than yours. Hopefully, this will also help you with the amount of 'packing".
**All we require is enough food for the stay, and any updated vet certificates.
