DESTINATION February 7, 2018 HOMETOWN STORIES by Vicki Smith ? Kottage Kennels adds self-service pet bathing, odor destroyers, party ponies and more! T ~'ottage Kennels IA[ & Suites is locally owned JI Iband operated , by Tine Martin. Tine lives in Bolingbroke and has owned and oper- ated Kottage Kennels since 2005. She origi- nally opened a smaller facility on Rivoli Road but soon out- grew that build- ing. In 2011 Tine purchased three acres at 195 Klopher Road (in Bolingbroke) and built a 5,000 squ e- foot, state-of-the- pet hotel that offers over- night boarding, dayeare and grooming in a com- fortable and safe environ- ment. Kottage Kennels is a crate-free facility, and all the suites have doggy doors with outdoor runs. Most recently, Tine has opened a "Self Service Pet Bathing" room. She said she did extensive research and found that this is very pop: ular in other cities, such as Nashville. She offers two big elevated tubs that can easily accommodate just about any size dog. Tine offers an assortment of dog shampoos o~ ~:i, ~:LCZ ~ and condition- ers - whatever your dog needs, she has it. She even has a "skunk" shampoo/odor destroyer in case Fido has an unfortunate run- in with Pepe Le Pew. Tine and her staff say not only do the dogs love their "spa" day, but so do the owners. I decided to give it a try and gave my Bella a little personalized spa treatment. I am deft- nitely a fan! At home, it takes me over an hour to bathe her in the sink and then blow her out. Here, I was in and out in about t5 minutes! Another happy client recently had a lab that rolled in mud (and who knows what else) and she did not want to put him in her personal tub. She brought him to Kottage Kennels and got him cleaned up and dried in no time. The tubs are similar to a car wash. You just turn the handle to wash or rinse. The shampoo is already in the wash cycle so it dispenses without having to do anything but spray, and the dogs especially love the scrub- use the facility at no by brushes. There is a big charge, dryer with a long hose Check out Kottage (also similar to the car Kennels & Suites web- wash), site at www.kottageken- Tine's main rule is that for additional all dogs must have proof information and hours of of their vaccinations, operation.
