Boarding Kennel

Ernie and Bonnie Witten

Wittenhaus Kennels was formerly called Corbscott Farms which was founded in 1927. The Corby family bought the property and started the kennel business in 1927. It continued to be a family business up until 2003 when owner Carol Corby retired, and sold the property and kennel to long time family friends, Ernie and Bonnie Witten, who were longing to embrace their dreams and passions of owning a kennel, and breeding Rottweilers. The kennel became the perfect opportunity to breed the Rottweilers, a breed that needs plenty of socialization, discipline, time, and attention. Rottweilers are not for everyone, as they are more of a working dog rather than a lap dog. With this goal in mind, the Witten's could now have the space and environment to pursue breeding. However, the love of dogs also encouraged Ernie and Bonnie to continue the boarding of all kinds of dogs.

Over the recent years, Wittenhaus Kennels has developed a positive reputation as a contemporary facility that accommodates your family pet in many ways. Many of the patrons refer to Wittenhaus Kennels as "doggie camp", "home away from home", and as "their dog's vacation spot". The goal of WK is to please their customers with the absolute best care for their pet.

As time continues, the Witten's would like to modify and expand their kennel business. Future goals include enlarging the facilities, meeting all needs of the pet owners, helping dogs in physical therapy, and develop their new and current "Doggie Day Care" program. As the kennel business grows larger, these ideas become more of a reality, and the Witten's appreciate and welcome their customers sincerely. Ernie and Bonnie Witten plan on continuing the kennel business with the ultimate care for your pet, as they treat all boarders with the same love, care, and compassion as they treat their own dogs.
