Our Boarding Difference

Pamper your pet during their stay with individual activities or by joining in on the fun at doggie daycare or group play on the weekends! From getting to know you and your pets, to the meticulous safety features, to subtle touches, we've thought of all the little things, so you don't have to worry.

All boarding reservations require a 50% deposit at the time of booking. This deposit is 100% refundable as long as you cancel with at least 24 hour notice.

Check-In anytime during regular business hours:
Monday - Friday: 7:30am - 5:30pm
Saturday: 8:00am - Noon & 5:00pm - 6:00pm

*Please note that pets checking out after 12:30pm will receive an additional half-day boarding charge. If your pet has a bath, full groom, or daycare on their departure date they will NOT be charged the half-day fee.

Boarding does not include a departure bath. We take a number of measures to prevent the rooms and suites from becoming smelly, with heated floors to ensure they stay dry and frequent potty times to avoid accidents.

Please call ahead if you'd like to schedule a tour.

What to BringWhat NOT to Bring

1/1-1/2 (New Year’s)

3/16-3/31 (Spring Break & Easter)
