"Every feature of the kennel is aimed at ensuring safety and comfort for pets."
Kennel Manager and Owner
Cadeau Kennels & Cattery is staffed by experienced people who have spent years developing a system of caring for boarded pets, ensuring their comfort and minimizing kennel stress.
The kennel yard is laid out with only one entrance and exit, through the office, in order to exclude the possibility of any dogs getting out.
The perimeter of the kennel yard is marked by a six foot precast wall, topped with a foot of wire mesh. We have not had a dog escape since we went into business in 1980.
Large dogs are out for exercise in a large yard with an opportunity to interact with the other dogs. if they are sociable. Otherwise in family groups. Small breeds are brought out for exercise in a smaller yard strongly fenced, and including shade trees.
Dog Training in Obedience and Protection is available, but is charged separately from boarding fees.

The cattery pens are enclosed in brick and small mesh wire, under a steel roof. Click on the 'Gallery' heading and then on the Cattery picture for photos.
There are two blocks of dog kennels. One is for large breeds, and one block for small breeds.
The kennels are built of strong mesh wire on several courses of face brick walling, with shade cloth cover. The low walls ensure adequate ventilation and air movement during the summer time.
Every kennel has a brick sleeping quarter supplied with a board and blanket, for dogs who want to snooze.
Bitches in season are housed in a row where no male dogs enter.
Experienced carers make sure your pet has a vacation as great as yours!
A variety of budgies and canaries find their way to Cadeau during the year. We admit them in their own cages, provided the cages are sturdy and secure.
Hamsters, rabbits, chickens, fish and tortoises also sometimes appear on the scene. We even had a couple of pot bellied pigs one holiday!
Arrangements for caring for such odds and ends are made on an individual basis.
Call us! We can usually make a plan.
