XVIII. We shall provide clean safe climate controlled indoor shelter such as playrooms and private boarding chambers to protect each pet from injury or intrusion by other animals.

XXI. We shall rotate our off-leash groups from outside to inside throughout the day, and we shall take precaution from the elements in extreme heat or cold and inclement weather.
