SERVICES

Boarding At The Pooch Parlor

  • Your pet will go out 5-6 times a day for bathroom breaks and playtimes.

  • Your pet will reside in one of our spacious 6 X 4 ft runs (walls go up to ceiling height).

  • Our runs are large enough that your pets can be kept together if you choose. The inside of the kennels have a 4 ft high vinyl privacy panel.

  • The kennel areas are cleaned regularly and disinfected before a new tenant arrives.

  • Your pet is given meticulous care to ensure  they are happy and eating well. Not to mention lots of love and attention!

  • Each run has an automatic water bowl so every time your pet drinks the bowl will refill with fresh water.

  • We ask you to bring your dog’s food. If we provide the food a charge of $1 per day will be added to your invoice.

  • While boarding at the Pooch Parlor your pet will have numerous, supervised opportunities to play in our 5 acre play yard or other play areas.

  • Your pet is welcome to play with other dogs of similar size and temperament. If you prefer, your dog can have playtime without other dogs. (There is a small fee of $4.00 a day as we personally take your dog out alone.)

  • All dogs are fed twice daily and are given a treat before bed.

  • We regularly post facebook videos so you can see your dog at play.

  • 01-13 pounds = $16 per day

Cats are $12 a day. Cats have their own run and we provide the litter and box.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I bring my dog in for boarding or daycare if they are not housebroken?


No, as it is extremely time consuming to re-clean and manage the other dogs that are already transitioning to play/bathroom time. While we understand and will give some grace to a dog that has a couple of accidents as they adjust to a new setting, frequent accidents will incur an an additional charge of $4 a day. This is due to the extra clean up and sanitation time. While your dog may be housebroken that does not always translate into being "kennelbroken". You will only be contacted about your dogs accidents if it seems medically concerning (i.e. frequent diarrhea). For daycare, we are willing to overlook an occasional accident, but it should not be a frequent issue.




What if my pet’s vaccines expire right before their stay, can they still come?


No.




Can I board my two dogs together in the same run?


Yes, as long as there is not a risk of one eating the other’s food. Side note: We do not offer a discount for shared runs as it has its own difficulties in managing two dogs in one run and the charge is for the personal care for each dog.




What happens if I can’t drop-off or pick up my pet at the appointed time?


Not a problem! Just call us ahead of time (preferablly the day before, but a couple of hours is manageable) and make us aware of it and you can drop-off/pick them up during the normal times that day or even extend the stay if necessary.




Will you take aggressive dogs?  How do you determine whether a dog is aggressive or not?


Not if they are aggressive toward people. However, we can take a limited number of dogs that are aggressive toward other dogs, but they will be separated during play times and breaks. There is an additional $4 charge per day (per family) for their care. The reason for the additional charge is we personally take your dog out for playtime separately numerous times a day (doubling our workday) and still try to take video so you can see your pet at our facebook page. It is our ultimate goal to provide a socially inclusive environment for all the dogs that enter our facility. This is not always possible though as dogs, like people, do not always get along. While we know that a growl or a bark is a perfectly acceptable means for a dog to communicate his discomfort, there are times when the messaging can be excessive. Determining a dog's level of inappropriate aggression/behavior can be quite obvious, but at other times it is a bit subjective. Examples of this include (but are not limited to) the following: needing to be pulled off of another dog, excessive snapping at other dogs without provocation, a insatiable proclivity toward mounting, are among the most concerning. While at home, your pet may seem quite comfortable around people and other animals as they are in a familiar setting. At times, they do not always transition well into an unfamiliar environment surrounded by dogs with a variety of personalities. Ultimately, we feel it is our responsiblity to ensure the well being of all the dogs during their stay here and reserve the right to make that judgement call.




Are there any breeds of dogs that you will not take?


There are some dog breeds that we have found to typically not be able to integrate well into our open social setting. While there are exceptions, the following breeds have had the most difficulity: German shepards/mixes, pitbulls/mixes, and some terrier groups have frequently demonstrated an inability to assimilate into our system. Please keep in mind that it is not just limited to these breeds, but these are the more common that we have had dealings with. We are willing to perform an evaluation of your pet if you believe they will do well well with our setting. That way we can determine their temperment and whether they are a good fit for our facility.





 
ABOUT
Conway's Pooch Parlor
Our Family

While we are not native Ohioans, we claim Ohio as our home as we have lived here for the past twenty-five years.  Our seven children though have all been born and raised here.  Jim has been a teacher and coach for about twenty years while Dawn has navigated the challenges of being a stay at home mom and a small business entrepreneur. With five children still at home, we are enjoying the benefits of having a family run business and love having them be a part of it. Not to mention the dogs love it too! Our family and faith are very important to us and we hope that is evident in how we care for your pets and treat our customers.

Gary and Jeannie Grosch purchased the eight acre property in 2002 and slowly developed the Pooch Parlor into the successful business that it is today. With almost twenty years of experience they had perfected their process down to a science which we continue to follow.
