What if my dog has separation anxiety?

If your dog has separation anxiety, we strongly encourage you to use the services of a pet sitter, we can suggest local ones here in the Kennebunk area. Boarding a dog with separation anxiety is not kind or safe for the dog as well as creating an overly stressful environment for the other guests. Your dog could also seriously injure themselves in an attempt to escape the unfamiliar space.

What if I have an older dog or a dog with special needs?

We asses each new client on a case by case basis. Geriatric dogs, especially frail, or ones with limited mobility may not be strong enough to participate in group socialization. We recommend that dogs on a regiment of medications or if they have an outstanding medical condition look into boarding with an area Veterinary Practice.

Un-neutered male dogs who have not participated in our program in their younger years may not be the best fit into our highly social environment.

Can I visit my pet while they are boarding at The Red Barn Inn?

This is not always encouraged, as sometimes the constant back and forth does not allow the dog a chance to settle in to the new environment. You may call and check in on their progress as well as follow us on Facebook, where we post pictures of our guests daily.
If the back and forth does not seem to upset your pet, you may pick up and drop off as long as it is with in our scheduled times.
