  • Daily housekeeping including sanitized bowls, kennel cleaning and fresh bedding - all done with pet-friendly cleaning products
  • Bathroom breaks 4 times per day for dogs
  • Attention and care from our kennel staff
  • Meals provided, though we recommend you bring your pet’s food from home, especially if they’re on a special diet
  • Intake and Outtake check-overs
  • Monitoring pet’s weight and health during their stay
  • Indoor and outdoor play areas for dogs

Things to Bring

Requirements for Boarding

To keep all our guests healthy and happy, we require them to be current on their vaccinations and parasite prevention. At drop-off we will request written proof that your pet is up-to-date on their required vaccines and test(s).

Our vaccine policy for pet boarding is as follows:

  • If vaccines need to be updated on the day of your pet's boarding stay, you will be required to check in for a walk-in tech or doctor visit and stay until the service is complete.
  • The ideal timeline is for vaccines to be updated 2 weeks before your boarding appointment.
  • You are responsible for providing us with updated vaccine records if your pet goes to a different veterinary clinic for routine care.

View the tables below to see what your dog or cat needs before their stay.

  • Rabies
  • Distemper (DHP)
  • 6-month Bordetella
  • Canine influenza – H3N2 and H3N8 strains
  • Negative fecal sample in last 12 months
  • Rabies
  • Distemper (FVRCP)

Upon Arrival

In the case that your pet is not up-to-date with their vaccinations and/or fecal testing, we can provide these services when you drop them off. We will also take a few minutes to answer any questions you have, confirm any additional service requests, and address your concerns. Our goal is to make your pet’s stay with us an enjoyable one and to exceed your expectations!
