Boarding & Daycare


  • We offer daycare and over-night boarding accommodations for your pet in our spacious indoor/outdoor runs, as well as private indoor suites 

  • Large fenced-in yards for exercise and group play  

  • Dogs receive individual attention daily as well as individual or group outside play time as temperaments permit 

  • Cats are housed in their own area and have access to an indoor play room. 

  • Our facility maintains a comfortable temperature year round with in-floor heating and air conditioning

  • Our facility is sanitized daily with additional cleaning as needed

  • Pets can remain on their own food or enjoy the gluten free Victor brand dry dog food we provide

  • Feline boarders must come with their own food.  Litter is provided.

  • To reduce the risk of fleas/ticks as well as the safety concern of things being ripped up, personal bedding and plush toys are not permitted (mats/cots/blankets provided)

Standard Kennels 

Boarding is provided in our standard indoor/outdoor kennels which are ideal for the active/social dog.  The kennels have a private indoor eating/sleeping area.  Dog doors remain open during the day (with the exception of extreme weather conditions) to provide access to an individually kenneled outside space where they are able to see the other dogs.  The outside area is covered to protect from weather. Kennels are furnished with cots, blankets, and crate pads as tolerated by your pet. 

Small (4'x6' in + 4'x8' out), Medium (5'x6' in + 5'X8' out), and Large (6'x6' in + 6'x8' out) kennels are available to accommodate dogs of all sizes as well as allow dogs from the same family to be kenneled together.  

Group/individual yard time is offered throughout the day.*





Indoor Suites

Boarding is provided in our fulling indoor suites in an area of the facility that is separate from the indoor/outdoor kennels. Suites are ideal for older, smaller, and anxious dogs as they provide a more private and less stressful environment for your dog.  Additionally, the suites are more temperature controlled as they do not have dog doors which open to the outside air.  The suites are furnished with cots, blankets, and crate pads as tolerated by your pet.  

Small (4'x6'), Medium (5'x6'), and Large (6'x6') kennels are available to accommodate dogs of all sizes as well as allow dogs from the same family to be kenneled together.  

Group/individual yard time is offered throughout the day.*

*Note- Group play is encouraged for all boarders as it reduces anxiety in the kennel environment when your dog associates the other dogs with play time rather than a source of stress.  However, social privileges must be earned and dogs that are aggressive will not be granted group play time.  Play groups are supervised and are organized by compatibility (size, energy level, temperament) to ensure safety and to reduce stress. 

Cat Boarding

Cats are lodged in a cat-only area of the facility in individual catteries which provide separate living and litter spaces.  The catteries are furnished with litter boxes, perches, sleeping pads and toys.  

Cats are also offered access to the playroom which features perches, hammocks, scratching posts, and toys.
