American PineAcre Kennels – We Offer More Than Boarding!
American PineAcre Kennels in Muncie, IN provides more than a pet kennel and boarding services. While your dog is in our care, we can help with training, behavioral issues, nutrition, or provide a nice thorough grooming. All of our pet care services are a la carte – in other words, you don’t need to purchase any service to be eligible for another.
American PineAcre Kennels also offer dog daycare services on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week. Dog daycare services include socialization, exercise, and play time.
Dog daycare costs $12 per day and is available from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Your dog will get to play with other like-minded dogs in a fenced-in yard. We can also have your dog play in a yard alone if you would prefer. We do not temperament test dogs for daycare because we have four large yards and three small yard areas to separate dogs in. Some dogs may not want to play directly with other dogs, but often enjoy fence racing and being beside other dogs. We have 10+ years of experience handling different breeds and personalities and can best match up what dogs will play best with others.
During the summer, each yard has a “dog pool” for the dogs to enjoy and water buckets for access to drinking water. During the winter, buckets often freeze, but do not worry; the dogs are rotated in and out of the cold and have access to water inside. It is not uncommon for your dog to come home tired from daycare and do not be alarmed. They may drink more than usual, as well, because their bodies are adjusting to the exercise they are getting.
Below is a very brief outline of our dog training offerings, as our training is individualized and based on each dog and their learning method. Please call to speak with our trainer and get an evaluation scheduled. Dogs need a lot of breaks between training sessions, but even during playtime we are teaching the dog specific social behaviors and making sure they are learning appropriate ways to play and release energy.
Drop off and pick up is between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM and the price for training is $22 per day.
