Stoney Brook Kennel

Media

Stoney Brook Kennel
  • Business name: Stoney Brook Kennel
  • Address: 151 Lapp Farm Dr
  • City, State Zip: Coatesville, PA 19320
  • Year: 2007
  • Date of CAPS Investigation: 2007-10-24
  • Time of CAPS Investigation: 12:08
  • Note: Pennsylvania kennel class: K3


Breeds: Golden Retrievers, Boxers, Beagles

There were six dogs and two puppies in the kennel at the time of investigation.

Stoney Brook Kennel was made up of two parts. One was a puppy pen containing two Boxer puppies, and the other was the primary kennel area holding all of the breeders, including Golden Retrievers, Beagles, and Boxers.

Puppy pen
The puppy pen was an outdoor enclosure surrounded by chain link walls, with a dog door accessing an area inside a barn I did not observe. The pen itself was about six feet wide and ten feet long, the bare ground acting as a flooring coated what appeared to be weeks of feces (PA Dog Law: 21.29(a) Sanitation). Four Boxer puppies, each about eight weeks old, and an empty plastic barrel were in the pen.

Main kennel
The main kennel area was a series of about six indoor/outdoor pens. I observed only the outdoor pens, being elevated, chain link runs with coated wire flooring. The backs of the pens were metal walls with metal dog doors to allow access to their indoor parts. In several pens there was rust on the dog doors and the walls where the doors and walls were connected. Most pens contained a single dog, while one contained two Golden Retrievers.

Cleaning and health violations
One Boxer pen had several days of feces piled up on its wire flooring (PA Dog Law: 21.29(a) Sanitation). In another pen, a Boxer had a clear discharge from both of its eyes and had swollen eyelids (PA Dog Law: 21.30 Condition of dog).
