What makes Hyer Luv Kennel and Groomers a stand out in the industry?

  1. We are a family, like yours, not employees. Each member lives to make your fur childís visit with us special.
  2. We are here to care for your pet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year round.
  3. We are open 7 days a week to our clientís human parents. (Mon.-Sat. 8-11 am & 2-7 pm Sun. 4-7 pm)
  4. Everyday from 7am until Midnight every 1.5-2 hourís your companion has the opportunity to go outside (potty, play groups, one on one time with a family member) at no additional charge. There are several large safe play areas with various exercise toys and surfaces for the fun of our guests.
  5. Bedding is changed, whenever damp or dirty, at least twice a day. The bedroom suites are built with ceramic tile a surface that companions are used to and the spacious rooms do not feel like containment but more like home.
  6. Water is purified and conditioned and changed out at least 3 times a day.
  7. We follow your fur childís daily routine. We ask you for a written outline of your companionís day and instead of demanding your child to follow our routine and emotionally upset him/her, we bend to ease separation from home by making their vacation familiar and fun.
  8. Our facility has three separate vacation suites for our guests. A feline condo/play room. A small dog building with suites for rest and an indoor play area. And a large dog building, with large roomy suites to aid in the comfort of breeds of all sizes.
  9. Each building maintains a 70 degree year round temperature for your childís comfort and health. The system is radiant through the floor for your companionís comfort and safety.
  10. We will give your pets medications (unless they require grooming or injections) or vitamins at no additional charge.
  11. We ask that your bring your childís meals (feel free to bring their treats and a toy if you like), so there is no dietary upset either when with us or returning home.
