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.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.
