Boarding Options

Canine Rooms With Private Patio

Our standard rooms offer the comfort of a raised Kuranda bed, in-floor heat, air conditioning, and soothing music. Each dog has an indoor room with access to their own private 5' x 8' outdoor patio that is covered to protect them from the elements. Your dog will enjoy a more social atmosphere, being able to see their friends around them.


One dog is $30/night. Each additional dog is $26/night.*
* To receive the discounted rate, dogs must share the same room.

Canine Suites With Private Patio

Our luxury suites are a step up from our standard rooms. Our suites offer more space, privacy, and soothing music with less noise and disruption. Your dog will have a comfy raised Kuranda bed, in-floor heat, and air conditioning along with access to their own private 6' x 8' outdoor patio that is covered to protect them from the elements. Each suite guest receives daily one-on-one interactive time with our caring staff for playing, swimming, or cuddling -- whichever is your dog's preference.


One dog is $43/night. Each additional dog is $39/night.*
* To receive the discounted rate, dogs must share the same suite.



We can provide our house food, Fromm Classic, for $2.00 per feeding per dog.

Swimming Pool

Your dog can enjoy the freedom and exhilaration of year-round aquatic exercise in our indoor 4’ deep pool. Water-loving breeds and many hunting dogs delight in a good splash in our clean and well-maintained pool. An exciting swim can provide a welcome variety for a dog battling boredom. Pool use can be by appointment or during a boarding stay. First time pool users get a free 10-minute session - just ask!

Swim Sessions: Dogs can swim 10 minutes for $15 or 20 minutes for $20.
Swim Packages: Pool rehab packages are available for $100 for 10 minute sessions and recreational use packages are available for $150 for 20 minute sessions. Packages include 10 visits.

Playtime Options

Our boarding guests can also enjoy playtime while they stay with us! We have large indoor and outdoor play areas for dogs to run, either by themselves or with other dogs. Playtime is a great way to keep your dog happy and ensure a restful afternoon nap!

Unstructured Playtime (Indoors Only): Dogs play and stretch their legs, plus they'll have the space all to themselves. 15 minutes for $6

Structured Playtime: Dogs enjoy one-on-one interaction with a staff member to play fetch, tug, or just to cuddle. 15 minutes for $11

Group Playtime: Dogs play together in a group format. Completed enrollment form & assessment required for new group play clients. 30 minutes for $11

Daycare/Group Play Application

Required Vaccinations

Proof of a current rabies vaccine is required for all pets over 6 months of age (received by us before their stay). Distemper and Bordetella are also recommended. For the safety of all our guests we cannot board a pet with existing fleas. If fleas are discovered on a pet already checked in, we will give them Capstar (a fast-acting oral flea treatment) and then bathe them in a natural flea shampoo (additional charges apply). Owners will need to follow up with a flea treatment (preferably an oral treatment like NexGuard or Capstar).

Medication Administration

We are able to administer medications while your pet stays with us, for $1 per administration. Please bring medications in their original containers so we have accurate instructions.

What to Bring

You may bring your pet's own food. We ask that you place each meal in a Ziploc bag or put in gallon-sized bags. Our house food, Fromm Family Pet Foods, is also available for purchase, but we believe keeping your pet on a consistent diet minimizes upset stomachs, so bringing your own food is usually the best option.

Pets are welcome to bring any personal belongings such as blankets, toys, and treats. We provide our canine guests with stainless steel dishes and Kuranda beds. We are not responsible for lost or destroyed items.

Everything For Your Pet But The Vet Experience the difference with our large outdoor yards, home-like bathroom schedule, indoor/outdoor room setup, small playgroups, detailed grooming, and "Daycare with a Difference" which combines mental stimulation and basic training along with regular daycare. We also offer training classes through No Limits Canine. We’ll make your pet’s daycare, boarding, and grooming experience the very best!
Awesome ownership with a great staff who is well trained in their field of expertise!— Tim D.
