Day Care

Healthy Hounds & Fat Cats is Durango’s original and premier doggy day care. We specialize in safe, appropriate play time. Good manners and basic training is always reinforced. Groups are always supervised by our highly trained staff. We have three back yards, an indoor playroom, jungle gyms to climb or sunbathe on, and even a wading pool in the summer! Dogs are placed in energy and size appropriate play groups.

In town to ride the world renowned Durango Silverton Narrow Guage Train? We can take care of your pet for the day! We offer extended hours to match the regular summer train schedule (with advance reservation). Please understand that if the train is late, your pet may need to spend the night; bring appropriate food and medications just in case.

Of course, Healthy Hounds & Fat Cats also cares for your pets during the work day. Please note: Colorado State law requires all pets must be current on all vaccines including Bordetella., Distemper, Parvo, and Rabies. Please provide proof from your veterinarian at drop-off.

Advance Reservations are highly recommended for day care and boarding. WE REQUIRE PROOF OF VACCINATIONS FROM YOUR VET. Dogs MUST have proof of current Distemper combination shot, Bordetella, and Rabies (may be waived for puppies under 4 months of age). Cats MUST have proof of current Feline F Series, Rabies, and Feline Leukemia. All of these vaccinations should be administered at least one week ahead of time. If your pet cannot have certain vaccinations we need proof of a current exam and letter from your vet.

Boarding

Overnight guests rest on comfy cots at night. We provide super soft shearling or you are welcome to bring your own bedding. Our guests dine on high quality chicken and rice kibble, or we are happy to serve any meal you provide. Please note there are no charges for “extras”. We don’t feel that exercise, attention, medicines, or the goodwill of a treat should be an extra charge. Healthy Hounds & Fat Cats also performs a late evening potty break and wellness check for all or our valued canine guests.

Feline guests enjoy large private condos with windows and kitty perches, and the same special attention to diet and medication. Each cat also has private time on the custom kitty porch (weather permitting). PROOF OF UP TO DATE VACCINES MUST BE PROVIDED FOR ALL PETS.
