Boarding kennels

6 posts in this topic

I live in the north metro and would like to find a good boarding place for my labs. One is 11 years old but the pup will be 9 months old and needs some attention, some exercise and play time. Anyone have experience with a kennel that they thought was good.I will be leaving them for 2 weeks. Thanks for any info DrJ.

Typo Lake Kennels in Stacey, MN. (Just off 35)

They have good prices and a good facility. I used them for 4 days when I got married this past winter and would definitely recommend them.

I have trained with Greg (owner/trainer of Typo Lake Kennels) one day and he treated a small group of us (3 guys/dogs) great...he was very informative/helpful and worked with us for two hours longer than we had scheduled with him.

I have never boarded my dog at Armstrong Kennels, but it is in Ramsey. I have friends that go there and they are happy. Even with Game Fair going on they still have plenty of people working the kennel.

If your heading north you can bring them to Happy Hound Hotel in Rock Creek right off of 35. They are great people, very affordable and it's a nice place. That's were my lab goes if needed. They love to play with the dogs and will walk them on a trail they have if you want to as well.

Blaine Kennels off of 85th / Radisson. They have given my lab excellent care. They also have a play time option. My dog actually gets excited when he goes there. He loves it. Dale and Coleen have been in the business for many years and run a solid operation. Dale is also a trainer, so if you want anything else for your 9 month old, he can take care of you.

If it is going to be for two weeks, I would look towards a trainer to do a short training session on him instead of a boarding kennel. That would take care of the exercise and attention needs of that young pup plus it will give him a little extra training before the season.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
