Pet Of The week

Our kennel phone number is now a mobile number. That means you can now text our number and send pictures. We can also send pictures to you now whenever we take that great candid shot of your dog while staying here at our kennel.
We are also posting pictures of the dogs that are staying here up on boards in the office so when you come in you may see your dog in action in the play yard, having a great time on a nature walk, swimming or being cuddled and loved by one of our employees.
The employees get to choose who the most popular pet is of the week and we post that picture for all to see. Just another way of having fun at Shertom Kennels.
