Cranberry Township gives OK to kennel

July 12, 2012 by  

Soon, pet owners in Cranberry Township will have a place to bring their pooches to be pampered. An application to open an indoor dog day care and boarding facility was presented to the Cranberry Township Board of Supervisors on June 28.

The proposed center promised to be quite different to the usual dog day care and kennel. Instead of containing the pets in cages, each dog will have his own room during his stay. The kennel will be modeled after luxury spas rather than traditional dog boarding facilities.

Pet owners will be able to bring their dogs to the facility to be groomed as well as trained. A play area will give dogs plenty of space to run and play with their canine friends during their stay at the kennel and day care.

The site of the soon-to-be-opened kennel will be a 9,776 square-foot building on Route 19 in Cranberry Township. Prior to being approved for use as a kennel, the building was a Honda dealership but this closed in 2009 and the building has been vacant ever since.

The Board of Supervisors quickly approved the application for the kennel during the June 28 meeting. There is no word yet on when the kennel will open but the owners may want to make use of local flyer printing to the spread the word of when the Cranberry Township kennel is scheduled to open. The owner might also consider using printing companies to produce brochures describing the kennel and day care’s features.
