When to Drop Off and Pick Up for Boarding

Appointments must be scheduled in advance for dropping off & picking up due to Covid19. 

Boarding charges BEGIN THE DAY your pet is dropped off (not the hour).
If your pet is picked up before 11:00 a.m., there are no charges for that day.

We also offer pick-up and delivery. Charges are .99/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

dog training

All Boarding includes climate controlled indoor / outdoor kennel runs, rubber matting, 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 or Lamb & Rice ) and treats. You are welcome to supply your own food. All we ask is it be put into zip loc bags enough for each meal, each dog, each day. (We do not have space to properly store large bags of dog food) 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

Additional Services

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!

In order for us to properly care for your pet and others, we need to be properly staffed. Our employees count on their hours and income too. Additionally, we often turn away business during holidays and vacation periods. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation!
