"Owner is nice and responds very quickly. Have used this location on 5 occasions ranging from 3 days to 9 and my dogs always come home healthy, well fed, and have never had fleas. Sometimes the cameras to view your pups goes down but for us that’s not a huge issue as we know they are in excellent hands"
"This was our first time boarding our fur babies, I was a little nervous but Ms. Linda is amazing! We have 2 American Bulldogs that get overheated easily and she took the time to move them to a more shaded kennel, wet them down and put fans on them to cool off! You can tell she truly cares about dogs. I will definitely be going back to her for our boarding needs"
"I have never boarded my dogs before, because I have one that is high anxiety and an escape artist and I feel bad leaving her Ms. Linda was amazing. She had an answer for ever concern an I was able to monitor them her cameras she has set up. I was able to enjoy the event I was hosting. THANK YOU! from Bonnie and Max"

Absolutely. Your dog can have their favorite toy in his/her suite during their boarding stay. However, we do not allow toys in the play areas where dogs can sometimes become aggressive if they haven’t learned to share.
Yes we do.
We offer discounts for each additional dog for both daycare and boarding services.
For those who have a big family, we incorporate discounts into your invoice for full day of daycare, half day of daycare, daycare packages and playmate boarding. To receive the playmate boarding discounts, your pets must be staying in the same suite.
Daycare Services: $5 off each full day (for packages that includes $5 off each package day)
Boarding Services: 2nd Pooch: 20% off, 3rd+ Pooch: 40%
This is not uncommon. What often happens is that dogs spend so much time playing with each other that they sometimes forget to stop and take a drink. For those parents that have children, it is similar to a child forgetting to eat lunch because they are so busy playing with their friends. Please know that we offer multiple sources of water in each play area and every dog has a bowl of fresh water in their suite at all times.
Your pet can be exposed to diseases regardless of where they are, whether at home, at a dog park, taking a walk in your neighborhood, or staying at our hotel. However, the risk of contracting a disease is quite low and virtually eliminated when proper vaccinations are administered (as we require). In addition, we maintain very high sanitation standards and we do everything we can to prevent transmittable diseases from occurring in our hotels.
As always, our primary concern is the welfare of the dogs in our care. Once they complete their full vaccine requirements (usually after the Rabies vaccine at 16 weeks or whenever required by state law), we are happy to welcome them in.
You can call us during business hours or request a reservation online through our website. One of our Certified Counselors will reach out to you to confirm your reservation request.
You sure can! We’d love to have you stop by and check out our facility. You need to call ahead or book an appointment. We’ll be happy to show you around and answer your questions.
All of our hotels are staffed 24-hours each day, 7 days each week so your dog is never truly alone. However, as you would probably expect, they will be by themselves during the night when they’re sleeping in their suites, unless they have a buddy boarding with them.
The term “daycare” means that we are providing care for your dog for the day. Playtime is included in that cost, but whether that playtime is social with other dogs or one-on- one playtime with a human is up to our professional discretion. Not all dogs are fit for social play here. That doesn’t mean they are a “bad dog”, but rather that they will do better getting individual attention due to age, health, behavior, personality, etc. We still love your dog and are happy to continue to care for him/her during daycare by enrolling them in our Personal Play program. S/He will receive the same level of care, just a different schedule and play program during the day.
Dogs staying overnight can be dropped off anytime that day during business hours. We suggest arriving before 4 p.m. so they can play, eat, and play again prior to bedtime. While you can check your pup in and out anytime during business hours at no additional cost, we do request that you pick them up 15 minutes before closing so we can tuck in our Overnight Campers.
However, we have staff at the hotel most of the time each day and you can drop off and pick up your dog at any time. Please note that an additional $25.00 fee may apply for after-hours check-in or check-out.
Sure. We’re happy to have your dog sleep on his or her bed when they’re with us if it makes them feel more comfortable.
We’re able to provide medication to your pet whenever he needs it. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to administer injections.
Yes, we actually encourage dogs from the same home to stay together. We find that dogs from the same home usually do better when they stay with their siblings or buddies.
