We also offer pick-up and delivery. Charges are .89/mile from the kennel to your home and back to our facility.

*Have an emergency and need to drop-off outside our posted hours … we will do our best to accommodate your special needs for a small additional fee to cover additional employee costs.

Dog Boarding

All Boarding includes climate controlled indoor / outdoor kennel runs, rubber matting on concrete floors, bedding, a minimum of 4 turn-outs a day into one of the play yards for potty time, premium house food (Grain Free Wild Caught Salmon & Pea Protein – Dogs LOVE fish!).  and treats. Plus, non-stop attention from our attentive staff!

Please note: Due to the cost of additional staff, materials and time necessary to care for a full house of pets properly during holiday & vacation periods, a minimum holiday stay will consist of  3 days board during  all school vacations, Thanksgiving Weekend, Christmas, New Years, Easter Weekend, Memorial Weekend, 4th of July, Labor Day Weekend.         (Ask about and sign up for our ‘Boarding Bucks’ program and save $$$.)

The Extras

We STRONGLY recommend pets under 6 months and over 8 yrs. of age receive a play time or 1 additional walk every day in addition to their regular potty breaks. This allows your pet to access their bodily functions, offers more one-on-one time with our staff and facilitates physical activity outside their run. We find this makes a significant difference in the quality of your pet’s vacation; especially high energy breeds (Retrievers, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, Terriers, & mixes from the working, herding & sporting groups).

For added convenience, have your pet bathed, nails trimmed and coat brushed before you pick them up!
