Social Boarding :
Lots of play time, less crate time!

Your dog will be in a small play group during the day -- outside in good weather. They'll enjoy:

  • Playtimes
  • Snack time
  • 2 Nap times
  • Meal times
  • Bedtime lullabies

Your dog eats their regular food, we play relaxing music or TV, and give medication or wound care as needed. Long ears are cleaned every 3 days. The dogs go to sleep to "Canine Lullabies" at night.

We use all natural products that are safe for pets & the environment.

We require...

  • Vaccination: proof of current Rabies vaccination, and DHLPP within 3 years or proof of titer, and Bordetella (kennel cough) within 6 months.
  • Bring an adequate supply of your dog's food, preferably in a sealed container.
  • Bring any routine medications or supplements and instructions for their administration.
  • Your dog must have a buckle or snap collar and may not be left here with only a choke-chain or pinch collar or no collar at all.
  • Your dog must have a 4' or longer leash that is NOT a Flexi-leash.
  • You may bring any treats, toys, or blankies that your dog is used to, if you like. For example some people put their dogs to bed with a Kong toy stuffed with peanut butter & kibble or banana.

Rates: *$30/day (Training customers $25/day)

  • Sunday drop-off or pick-up hours are from 8:00-8:30am & 6:00 pm. If you miss that timeframe, i's an extra $10 charge.
  • Please arrive/pickup at the time arranged. If you don't, we may not be able to accommodate you! Late charge: $5 each 1/2-hour past the arranged drop-off or pick-up time

We reserve the right to refuse to board any dog.

A Few Words About Separation Anxiety
If your dog has separation anxiety we strongly urge you to use the services of a pet-sitter or house-sitter. Boarding a dog with separation anxiety is not safe or kind for the dog, it is stressful for the other dogs being boarded, and you may incur extreme costs to replace/repair the physical damage that your dog does to the boarding facility. Your dog could also seriously injure themselves in attempts to escape the boarding facility.
