Welcome to Bones, LLC ... the ultimate in dog
Living in the company of five dogs of our own, we
knew first-hand how difficult it was to find a suitable boarding
environment when needed. Our desire was a place of comfort, warmth, peacefulness
and pleasure, without the customary cages and
concrete runs. What WE
wanted for our own dogs was a "home away from
home" environment with personalized care.
It is those criteria that became the foundation for Bones.
Bones, located just north of Atlanta, Georgia, is a
small, unique pet resort offering complete specialized care for your
beloved canine family member. For added peace of mind, two
dedicated adults (who happen to be the owners) live on the property and
are the caregivers at Bones. We are a close-knit family and greet
everyone by name. Bones guests arrive excited and happy, and
return home already anticipating their next vacation!
Every aspect of our dog retreat is designed to insure
quality care and reduce stress for our guests. Personal attention
and customized professional care is our main focus. We strive to
spend as much time with each guest as possible and to have all of them
out and about on a consistent basis.
Our guests can either lounge in our
comfortable great room or can run, jump, sniff and play in one of our
large secure play yards.
Playtime can either be a "group affair" with compatible playmates
(subject to approval of temperament), or individual ball chase, Frisbee
toss or sniff and stroll may be arranged.
Nestled on eight acres of serene country living, each
guest has his own bedroom. Unlike other large boarding facilities,
we are a small, exclusive retreat with only 14 private bedrooms.
Although the private rooms are bright and cheery, with appropriate space
and a comfortable bed, they are nothing more than a nice place to sleep, relax
and dine! The "great room" is the favorite place for most of our
guests to socialize and relax. Comfy
couches, satellite TV, soft music, ambient lighting and water fountains provide a soothing
atmosphere for both canine and human alike!
Our Mission Statement is:
To provide a home-like environment with high quality
care so that owners may confidently leave their family member with us,
and have peace of mind knowing that he/she will be cared for as our very

Johnny and Sandy's Personal Notes ...
We have been in the "pet care" industry for 30
combined years! During that time, we cleaned dog runs, bathed and
fed hospitalized pets
well as boarding pets. Graduating to the position of Veterinary
Technicians, we have assisted in surgeries, given
injections/vaccinations, administered medications, educated clients and
managed the front office. In addition, we also have spent several
years managing and working in large upscale boarding facilities.
We both are certified in Basic and Advanced Obedience Training, Personal
Protection and assisting in Police K-9 Training.
Our canine family currently consists of 3 German
Shepherds, a Toy Poodle and an English-type Labrador. They are:
Dove (13 years), Koki (6 years), Olly (5 years), Booyah (2 years) and
Abby (3 years).
We say in our mission statement that you can leave
your pets with us and have "peace of mind knowing that he/she will be
cared for as our very own". Those are not just words but a
Our dogs share the bed (although they
think it is THEIRS!). They
keep us warm in the winter and we pay the bills to keep them cool in the
summer. They swim during the summer and hike in the winter ... and
even enjoy Mozart! We are just grateful that they let us be a part
of their lives! They are our companions and our protectors.
We have never worked in, nor found, a facility that gave us true peace
of mind when leaving them ... so, we built one!
Our concept was to utilize a "no chain link" approach, designed to
ensure quality and lower stress, while still maintaining safety and
security for guests. We decided that all pampered pets need
a home-like vacation place with lots of TLC. Thus BONES was

vacation, knowing your beloved pet is enjoying his!)
