On any given sunny day, a casual drive into 877 I-45 South, just south of Huntsville, is a doggie vacation. At Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville, they like all animals, but truly love dogs.
“This is a place where dogs get to be dogs,” said Stephenie Vallie. Stephenie, along with her husband Scott, are owners of the dog resort.
For nearly 20 years, Magnolia Kennel has been putting dog owners at ease as they go on vacations, allowing their pets a vacation as well. What sets this dog resort apart is the attention to detail. One can’t help but notice the natural grass and sense of play for all the doggie guests.
As former Texas Department of Criminal Justice K-9 officers, Stephenie and Scott bring more than 50 years of experience to a second career both have loved for scores of years. That experience and care for dogs is seen in the way Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville feeds, washes, and loves on every dog as if it were their very own. The special attention received by each dog is made even more evident as the dogs are let out to play and dig around or simply do whatever it is dogs love to do. They have a chance to really just have fun.
“With our background, we try to make our presentation in such a way as to balance the things dogs appreciate, like lots of attention, plenty of water and good food, along with a comfortable bed and love,” Stephenie said. “With the dog owners, we want them to know that their babies are in sound professional hands.”
Along with climate-controlled doggie condos, Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville also offers a number of services. Among services provided are boarding, with an option for extended boarding of more than 30 days, and the Doggie Day Out that’s sure to keep tails wagging.
Pets are offered to be groomed and washed as they are given the doggie spa treatment while relaxing to soft soothing music. Afterward, the dogs are given the chance to blow dry, and get their nails done. If they have not decided to go for the oatmeal bath, then they are released into one of the two large natural grass play and exercise areas.
The dogs are never out of the care of Stephenie or Scott, who have built their home at the dog resort and get as much out of playing and caring for the dogs as the dogs get themselves. Owners may bring toys, blankets, as well as other treats for their furry friends. Dogs get to play a minimum of 3 times each and every day of their stay at Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville. Every kennel is checked several times per day, with a kennel deck provided, and all pets are provided fresh water and Purina at mealtime.
Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville also takes note of your pet’s special needs and monitors each guest closely throughout the day. Proof of vaccinations for all the dog guests are required. All dogs must be current on Rabies, DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, Para influenza, parvovirus), and Bordetella vaccinations.
Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville is the leader of the pack when it comes to the absolute best care for your dog. The warmth of the dog resort facility provides your pet with a safe, clean, and fun environment that will remind your man’s (or woman’s) best friend of home. Whether your pet needs a scratch around the ear, a face to lick, or a place to play, your best friend will be well taken care of. Some pets want a treat—well, they even have that, too.
Your pet depends on you to take good care of it, even when you have to be out of town. Friends and neighbors may not have the experience or time to properly look after your pet, particularly for longer trips. So, next time you have to leave your pet behind for a while, leave pet care to the professionals at Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville. Avoid the stress of a long car or airplane ride to your destination. Unlike many hotels, this is a place that a dog can feel welcome and receive more attention and supervision than he would if left at home alone most of the day. Most of all, the dogs enjoy a place where there is no need to become escape artists.
From the moment your dog arrives to the moment your dog leaves, the main concern is your dog’s boarding experience and the care of your dog. Magnolia Kennel of Huntsville is dedicated to providing the ultimate in comfort, health, and safety for each of the guests and has sought innovations in pet care to provide the guests the highest level of quality in pet lodging. The result of this never-ending search is a degree of service and care that exceeds even some of the most discerning guest’s expectations.
“This really is a vacation for dogs. Some of them have so much fun that they just can’t wait to come back again,” continued Stephenie. “Sometimes, it’s as if the dogs are saying for the owners to go off and have fun and don’t worry about us—I’m just going to have fun being a dog for a while.” Come. Sit. Stay a while. You’ll see why it’s good to let dogs go “Where dogs get to be dogs.”
