Our Dog Boarding Accommodations

To help our canine guests feel comfortable and secure while getting plenty of exercise, we offer the following:

  • Dog kennels and runs
  • Outdoor runs
  • Individual playtime with our caring staff
  • A constant supply of fresh water
  • Cozy bedding
  • Food*
  • A complimentary bath for dogs who stay with us 6 or more days

*While we can provide guests a bland, gentle diet, we recommend bringing your pet’s own food with you for their stay. Being in a new environment can cause some stomach upset, but having their food from home can help alleviate this.

Cat Boarding Accommodations

As a Cat Friendly Practice, we provide cats with a cozy home away from home. We board cats in a separate ward, away from our canine guests, where they’ll enjoy:

  • Multi-tiered cat condos
  • Individual playtime
  • Their own private litter box, cleaned daily
  • Cozy bedding
  • A constant supply of fresh water
  • Food*

*Similar to dogs, cats can get an upset stomach while staying in an unfamiliar place, so we recommend bringing your cat’s food from home with them.
