Butternut Creek Kennels has been owned and operated by Dan and Ann Graham since 1986. Situated on 15 acres it includes the kennel building which sits on the south bank of Butternut Creek. To get to the kennel you cross the bridge over the creek. There is a large pond on the north side of creek. To the east of the kennel is a large orchard of apple trees of several varieties and at the edge of the orchard is one of the largest Burr Oak trees that you will ever see. There are two large barns south of the kennel building which house our horses, their hay and the tractors etc. which produce the hay. Dogs who sign up for our scenic walks get a variety of things to look at- creek, pond, orchard, and plenty of wildlife.
There is a training room between the two large barns which is heated and has rubber matting floor. This is where the dogs who are here for obedience training do most of their work.
Years ago, before buying the kennel, we had a couple of bad experiences boarding our first Irish Setter and our cat – once at a kennel and once at a vet clinic. The problems ranged from not feeding the food we provided (and they agreed to feed) to coming home unhappy and dirty. When we bought the kennel we resolved to never treat our boarders or their owners like this. To that end, we are careful to keep things clean and to follow owners requests regarding their pets. Whenever pets are away from home there is some degree of stress – our goal is to keep this to a minimum and have them go home happy, well fed and clean.
