Our Facility


 The kennel building has radiant floor heat for the cold winter months and air-conditioning for the summer. All the outdoor runs are covered, so the doggies can enjoy the outdoors all day long (outdoor temperature permitting) if they wish.  The owners live on site and the facility has a monitored security and fire system.  Our facility includes:

  • 55 standard size indoor-outdoor runs.  Our standard size runs are 4'x6' on the inside and 4'x8' on the outside.  (shown with a blanket in image below).  All our runs have solid vinyl walls between the runs.  This helps prevent gate aggression and excessive barking, which allows your pet to have a more relaxed and restful stay.  
  • 6 oversized indoor-outdoor runs.  They vary in size and shape, but are significantly larger than our standard size.  They are perfect for multiple dog families or giant breeds. (shown below without a blanket).
  • 4 "Condos".  The condos are our largest indoor- outdoor runs and can accommodate families with multiple large dogs, or just allow lots of extra space to play.  They vary in size slightly, but are roughly 8'x12' on both the inside and outside.
  • A large (100'x30') fenced-in grassy area where our guests can have their exercise and play sessions.  
  • 21 Courtyard pens for potty breaks.  Moving to our courtyard for potty breaks helps keep your dog on his/her potty schedule and allows our staff the opportunity to thoroughly clean the run and give fresh blankets and water.
  • Two bathing areas: a tub for most dogs and a shower for extra large and giant breeds that cannot be lifted into the tub.
  • An isolation area where we can evaluate and hold a pet who is showing symptoms of illness.  For the safety of all dogs in our care, we do not keep dogs who are ill at Joyful Acres, but the isolation area allows us to move an ill dog away from the other dogs until the owner/emergency contact or veterinarian can be reached.
  • Additional holding pens which are 5'x6'.  We use these to help us manage the logistics of transitions during extremely busy times.  (for example, if your pet in checking in this morning but the run is not available until this afternoon, we  can still accommodate your reservation by utilizing a holding pen for a few hours).
