How Hot Is Too Hot to Safely Walk Your Dog Outdoors?

While dogs do build up some tolerance on their paws to withstand hotter and colder temperatures, along with uneven terrain, pavement temperatures that are too hot can lead to burns and other injuries.

Summertime Threats That Can Bring Pain Instead of Pleasure to your Pet

The warmer months have arrived, which means it’s time for an important reminder about some of the hazards the season can present for canine family members. As much as we love seeing our dogs playing or snoozing in the sunshine, taking a few precautions can avert disaster and keep everyone safe and healthy all summer long.

Tips on picking up your dog

No matter your dog’s size, it’s important to pick him up the right way, which is something many well-meaning dog parents get wrong.

Why All Dogs Aren't Born to Swim

It’s a myth that all dogs know how to swim adequately enough to stay afloat, and some breeds are at a disadvantage in the water due to their physique, making it difficult for them to stay afloat.

Let us "Keep" Your Pets...While You're Away!

The Animal Keeper not only provides fun outside yards for your dogs to run free and play with friends, we also provide a number of pet boarding options to choose from, including dog boarding, cat boarding, bird boarding, and pocket pets boarding.

We take pride in our clean, climate-controlled and stress-free pet boarding facilities where your pet can safely and comfortably reside while you’re away.

We provide the best possible pet accommodations for all guests, even if your pet would feel more comfortable in their own kennel or even luxury suite for those who enjoy a little extra pizazz! Whether your pet is outgoing or a little on the shy side, your best friend will feel right at home.

The Animal Keeper staff is professional, well-trained, and truly care for the safety of your pets. We emphasize staff training and education to ensure that advanced safety protocols are followed and that prevention (as opposed to intervention) is practiced.

Our team consists of certified pet care technicians, and all new employees are required to attend a pet care certification training program.

During your pet’s stay, we make frequent kennel rounds and are constantly monitoring the behavior, health, and well-being of your pet. The Animal Keeper knows your pets are considered family and have special needs.

We truly love your pets and care for them as if they were our own. We’ve been providing pet care for over 50 years and that’s why we’re San Diego County’s choice for pet boarding. When your “best friend” is a guest at The Animal Keeper, rest assured they will love their “home away from home”.

It’s our pleasure to go the extra mile to make sure your canine friend’s stay is comfortable. Each dog kennel is provided with comfy bed and blankets. If your dog has a few favorite toys, they’re more than welcome to bring them along to make their dog boarding experience more enjoyable.
