Brady Kennels — Where tummy rubs are free

Boarding 101

Before you board:

• We love showing you around. If you’d like a tour, stop by the kennel during our open hours without your pet. The best time is late morning or late afternoon, when all of the animals are fed and settled down.

• Our busiest boarding times are around the holidays, throughout the summer, and when children are off of school. Call us as soon as possible to schedule your pet’s stay.

Boarding requirements

All animals boarding at Brady Kennels must be in good health and have proof of current vaccinations. Please have your vet email or fax your pets vaccination records to us prior to the requested reservation date.

• Dogs
We require the following vaccinations for boarding dogs:
Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella and the Canine Flu Vaccination.

*Bordetella (Kennel Cough) – We require this vaccination every 6 months. Once your pet receives this vaccination there is a 14 day waiting period. Your pet can visit with us on the 15th day. For your convenience, when you request a reservation, we will provide you with a “vaccination due by date” for the requested reservation.

Also, due to the increasing number of recorded Canine Flu cases in and around our county, Brady Kennels will now be making the Canine Flu vaccination one of our required vaccines effective October 15th, 2018.

*Please note that if your pet has not received the Canine Flu vaccination yet, it could take approximately a month and a half to complete. Your dog receives an initial injection and then a follow-up booster in approximately 2-4 weeks, and then yearly thereafter. Once your pet receives this booster, or an annual vaccination booster, there is a 14 day waiting period. Your pet can visit with us on the 15th day. For your convenience, when you request a reservation, we will provide you with a “vaccination due by date” for the requested reservation.

If the above vaccinations are not current… we CAN NOT board your pets.
Thank you, Brady Kennels, Inc.

When you board

Here are the things you need to know about boarding your pet at Brady Kennels:

The charge begins the day your pet is brought to Brady Kennels, regardless of the time. If you pick your pet up before 10 a.m., you are not charged for that day.

• We must have current copies of your pet’s vaccination records, as well as written instructions about food and medications.

• Leave a cell phone number, as well as an emergency contact.

• Tell us about any health concerns or issues your pet has. Maybe your four-legged friend trembles during thunderstorms; maybe your cat has allergies — be sure we know so your pet has the best stay possible.

• Don’t bring large, stuffed pillow beds or large blankets as they are hard to accommodate. If you’d like to furnish bedding for your pet, bring something small, washable or disposable as accidents can happen, and when they do, we will have to launder the item or throw it away. We have plenty of bedding, and we’ll add it if necessary.

• If you bring your own food, please bring it in a small container.

• You are welcome to bring toys, except for those that roll. Mark any toy or bone with your dog’s name.

• When you drop your four-legged friend off, it’s best to leave them with a quick goodbye in our office. It’s less stressful for your pet, as well as for you as you leave with the knowledge that we will give your dog or cat loving care until your return.


Brady Kennels provides bowls and adult food for your pet, offering Iams (Lamb and Rice), and Purina Dog Chow.

If you’d like your pet to eat the food you provide at home, bring it in a bag or container labeled with your pet’s name and feeding instructions.

Milkbone cookies are given throughout the day and at bedtime.

The Good Dog Seal of Approval

When you pick your pet up, we provide you a report on their stay: their activity, behavior, diet and overall health. We call it the Good Dog Seal of Approval, and it’s your assurance of the personal care and attention pets have enjoyed with Brady Kennels for the past four decades.

After you board:

• When you get home, limit your pet’s access to food and water for 2-3 hours until they settle down. When they stay at Brady Kennels, they have daily feedings and unlimited access to water, but sometimes your pet will eat or drink to excess when they first get home. They’re excited to see you again, and that excitement can upset their digestive system; they’ll likely need a day or two to “rest up” from their own vacation at Brady Kennels.
