Facility Design

Jay and Jeanne Prouty visited many boarding facilities around the country before building the North Main Pet Lodge. Our facility was designed and built with your pets needs and safety in mind. We offer large suites for both dogs and cats and our entire facility is fire sprinkled for the safety of your pet.

Dogs - Overnight Lodging

We offer individual indoor/outdoor enclosures. Our canine guests have the freedom to go in and out during the day and evening, weather permitting. A self-regulated potty area can reduce stress since your pet does not have to wait for a staff member to take him/her out for elimination. The outside area is covered to protect them from the rain or direct sun. Guests are checked between 9 and 10 pm each evening. In cooler weather they are closed in for the night at this time.

The interior sleeping area has a solid, high barrier between each dog providing for a more natural den-like environment. You may bring a blanket or small washable bed from home, or we will provide one. In summer, the inside is evaporative cooled and in winter, the floors are heated. We play music specifically designed to relax and calm the canine.

Your pet will get hands-on attention every day from our staff. We also offer enrichment activities for the active or pampered pet.
