A Dog Spot in Lanesboro


Fri, Oct 5th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Features

There is a business in Lanesboro, Minn. that is for the dogs. “A Dog Spot” is a small boarding facility for canines. The business is owned by Jill Kelly, Shalise Keating and Sandy Cattanach, who have been involved with dogs their entire lives. The three women were interested in living in a rural area and working with animals in some way. Jill and Shalise used to camp near Lanesboro, and loved the area, so Shalise said the three “pooled their resources” to make it a reality in the form of “A Dog Spot.”

Shalise and Jill are former owners and trainers of Paws Abilities Dog Training in Rochester, Minn. and Sandy was employed there as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). Shalise was among the first people in Minnesota to become a CPDT-KA. The women originally met through the Rochester Dog Obedience program.

The Kennel is in the lower level of the owners’ home, and is designed to make the visiting dogs feel at home as well. There is a large playroom for the dogs, and 10 kennel runs. There is also a very large fenced in area outside for the dogs to get exercise when weather permits. To reduce stress on the dogs, they are not able to see each other from their kennels unless a dog is being moved in or out of a kennel. Dogs that enjoy playing with other dogs are able to do so under supervision, or if they prefer to be by themselves they are given private space to play. When asked if it is hard for owners to leave their dogs at the kennel, Shalise stated, “It depends on the person. Some people call every day while they’re gone, which is fine, I would do the same thing.”

Many services are provided at “A Dog Spot” along with kenneling such as flea baths, nature walks and nail trimming. The owners of “A Dog Spot” are very knowledgeable about behavioral problems with dogs, and have three dogs that come from the Twin Cities for training. The owners offer obedience classes and interested persons can call “A Dog Spot” at (507) 875-2600. Dogs must have certain vaccinations before coming to “A Dog Spot” so be sure to check with the owners or their website, www.adogspot.com, for details. There are also specified pick up and drop off times listed which minimize stress on the dogs as well. “A Dog Spot” can be a second home for your pets when you are not able to be home with them.
