Canine care center adds indoor exercise facility

Breezy Acres Luxury Boarding Kennel and Doggy Daycare in Burlington, which has been providing pet services in the tri-county area for 10 years, has added a heated indoor exercise facility.

“I’m excited to offer it,’’ owner Susan Bliss-Winne said Tuesday. The facility will be open to the public for an open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The 2,500-square-foot building features an indoor heated pool for dogs and leather couches for dog naps as well as exercise areas, according to a media release. Breezy Acres can help pet owners meet therapy treatment or other recommendations of veterinarians, the release said. 

Bliss-Winne said she is “very, very big’’ on factors in board and exercise environments that support the health and well-being of dogs and cats. To that goal, she said, owners are required to complete a list regarding the pet’s health and to visit facilities with the dog before boarding.

The existing outdoor facilities include a canine swimming pool and three large fenced-in grass yards designed for play, the release said, and with the addition, the kennel offers the area’s only heated indoor exercise facility.

Bliss-Winne is a certified pet-care technician and has completed behavioral problem-solving training for canines through Cornell University, a biography said. An area native, Bliss-Winne graduated from Cooperstown Central School in 1988, attended Rochester Institute of Technology and graduated from Sage College of Albany. She has lived in Burlington since 1993.

Her experience includes assisting the Spring Farms Animal Sanctuary in Clinton and the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Hyde Park. She was a sponsor for the first American Cancer Society Bark for Life in Glimmerglass State Park.

Boarding charges for dogs range from $22 to $27 a day, depending on size or age of the pet, she said, and Doggy Daycare is $22 daily, with fees charged for extra services and packages available. The boarding facility occupancy is for 17 to 28 dogs, she said, and boarding spaces for cats are on a separate, second floor.
