Frequently Asked Questions


What is the cost for boarding?

The standard rate for boarding ranges from $45/night to $65/night depending on your preference of kennel or luxury suite and the size of the accommodations. If your dog has behavior issues or requires special accommodations the rate may be adjusted. Call the kennel for more info.

Do you charge extra for treats or play time?

We don’t charge extra for treats, cuddles or play-time because they’re already part of the CFK9 experience. Or ask about after-hours drop-off/pick-up coming soon!

What time do the dogs eat?

The dogs are fed at 7:30 am and 4:30 p.m.

How do I get started with training?

Call the kennel to speak with a trainer to schedule an Evaluation. At the evaluation you and your dog will meet with one of CFK9’s experienced trainers to discuss your needs and expectations and allow the trainer to interact with your dog. The trainer will use the results of the evaluation to create a customized training plan for your dog.

How much is an Evaluation and how do I pay for it?

The cost of the evaluation is $50. Once you’ve talked with a trainer to schedule, click the link to set up your account in the PetExec Pet Owner Portal where you can pay for your evaluation. Your appointment isn’t confirmed until we receive your payment.

Does my dog need an Evaluation for daycare or boarding?

Nope. Our experienced trainers will temperament test new dogs to find the proper play group for your dog, if appropriate. For the safety of all dogs and our staff, please let us know if your dog has displayed any type of aggressive behavior in the past, for example from fear, dogs, or humans.

How many days is basic training?

17 days, however if the trainer thinks the dog would benefit for a longer training program it will be discussed in the evaluation.
