Dog Boarding

A unique facility in a breathtaking location

Originally a late 19th century farm, La Petite Crochère is located 2 hours away from Paris, in the Sarthe province. Resting at the feet of the Marcelles Alps, our boarding kennels bathes in a world of greenery, surrounded by hills, meadows and woods. We kept the authenticity of this wonderful site intact so we could offer to the dogs the best comfort that is required for their well-being. Relaxation and well-being guaranteed ! Unlike traditional boarding doghouses, La Petite Crochère respects the natural and original needs of your dog, offering a model of organization based on pack life, The whole facility is specifically thought as a warm and comfortable habitat for your dog to thrive in, with large, open rooms under video surveillance, where dog beds and cushions are laid around for a peaceful night among each other. The thick farm walls, together with the ventilation and the ground heating combine to create the perfect protection against the summer heat and the winter bite, while meeting the sanitarian and veterinarian standards. The care facilities (kitchen, treatment area, grooming room…) are here to efficiently take care of your dog and his well-being. Our team is ever present, and encourages outside activities in the heart of our park, a 2-hectare big, enclosed land fitted with shelters for protection against the sun and the rain. These activities rely on play games and education (ball game, agility workshop…), which contribute to your dog’s energy expenditure and fulfillment. Go with peace of mind We take care of transportion from your home to La Petite Crochère and back. We welcome your dog all year around, for the time of a weekend, during your holidays, your professional trips, or for any other need you may have.
