Grammies dog facilities are 8x8 inside and have a covered deck 8x12 outside.  160 sq. ft. of living space.  Outside, flooring is plastic deck material.  Outside enclosure is power coated galvanized steel.  All have doors with key locks. 
All rooms are decorated to mimic home, complete with ceiling fan, window, radio and full size door with blinds between the glass. 
Each room has its own heat source and cooling system.
Floors in dog suites are tile.  Outside walls are Plastex Panels.  These were chosen for their excellent insulation factors and their ability to not allow any bacteria or fungus growth.  They are used in many Vet. clinics.  Walls between runs are 4" glass block.   They offer privacy, but keep face to face meetings non exsistant.  They do however allow lots of light.  Run fronts are 6 ft. sliding patio doors to insure we see your baby and he sees us!  Our indoor play-yard has 4 ft. vinyl fence and rubber flooring.  Sky lights provide natural, soothing light and atmosphere.  Jenny and I toured many of these facilities in Ohio and Michigan for ideas to the Pawfect Home Away From Home.   A lot of thought, time and research went into building the ultimate boarding experience for your baby.

In addition to their large private deck,  they also have access to our outdoor playground.  This play area is  grass with a sand pit for digging and wading pools for summer fun. 
Bad weather no problem.  We have a 26x20 indoor fenced play area in a park like setting. We choose rubber floors for safe running and jumping.  Great place for ball chasing or frisbee throwing.  No pet will spend his day idle.
(Please see note at bottom of page for update on play yard.)

After 1 week in operation, Jenny and I have decided the indoor play yard a wise choice!  The dogs love it, even the shy ones come around and join the fun.  
It's also a lot of fun for us humans!
