Pet Boarding: A Typical Day


Before eating breakfast, the dogs venture outside to our outdoor run for some fresh air. Staff will clean, disinfect and restock their kennels with fresh linens while they are outside. 

The dogs who stay with us are walked regularly, depending on their physical capacity and ability. 

Your dog will be supervised during his or her stay with us, both on walks and while they are resting. Dinner is served in the evening, and then we go for one last walk before bedtime.


Your cat will be fed according to their needs and your specifications, ensuring they keep the same routine as they do at home. 

We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties, including snuggles, pets and play (if they'd like these). During the day, litter boxes are checked, disinfected and cleaned. 

We also change linens and clean your cat's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separate from our dog boarding area to ensure that your kitty is safe and comfortable while staying with us.

  • What time should I drop off and pick up my pet?

    All pets must be dropped off or picked up during regular office hours. Reservations are recommended, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, we recommend that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the chance that a spot will be available.

  • How should I prepare for my pet's stay?

    Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.

    Step 1: Contact us to get started

    Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your cat or dog boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.

    Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.

    Step 2: Book a trial stay

    We want to be sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.

    Step 3: Set your pet up for success

    On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.

    Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful, and confident during the separation.

  • What do you feed animals that don't have their food?

    For pets that are not on a special diet, we can provide high-quality pet food that is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. An additional fee may apply.
