What’s Included with Dog Boarding?

Here’s what you need to know about our Pet Resort to see if we’re a good fit for your pet.

  • Fear Free Kennels

    The Pet Resort is outfitted with Fear Free-style dog kennels, painted in a soft shade of blue to promote calm. Some kennels are also designed to minimize contact with other pets to help reduce anxiety.

  • Comfy Beds

    All kennels have elevated, high-quality Kuranda beds to keep your pet cozy.

  • Indoor/Outdoor Spaces

    For medium and large-sized dogs, we offer indoor/outdoor kennels so guests can enjoy sunshine and fresh air when the weather permits. Small dogs have double-decker kennels.

  • Enjoyable Extras

    In addition to providing your canine with love, attention, and medical care as needed, we also offer snuggle times, playtimes, and walks.

  • A High-Quality Diet to Prevent Stomach Upset

    We can provide boarding dogs with Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diet EN (gastroenteric) in both canned and dry varieties to soothe anxious tummies. However, we recommend bringing your pet’s food from home if possible, especially if they are on a prescription diet.

What Our Cat Boarding Service Includes

Cats have their own boarding wing, with multi-level cat condos with separate spaces for their litterbox.

  • Overnight stay: $20
