Your pet's home away from home.

How do I make a dog boarding reservation?

You may call any time during our normal operating hours to book a reservation. We will inform you of kennel unit availability on the dates you want accommodations. If a kennel unit is available on the dates you request, we will happily book the reservation. Reservations can fill up fast as holidays and school breaks approach. So when planning for these special days, be sure to call more than a month in advance to book. At other times, you may be able to make a reservation on short notice.

To make the check-in process go more quickly and smoothly, please complete and submit our online Boarding Guest Check-In Form before you arrive to drop off your pet. This will give us the information we need to make your friend’s stay a wonderful experience. If you would like your dog to receive a nail trim, bath, or brushing, you can indicate these—as well as any other special needs or instructions—on the form. (Additional fees may apply for added services.)

A mandatory bath is required prior to departure for a pet that boards with us for 2 or more nights. The mandatory bath is free if they are staying 7 or more nights, and 25% off the regular price of a bath if they are staying 2 to 6 nights. If your dog has long hair, which requires extra time and attention, an additional fee will apply to the bath.

If your dog is boarding on or around a holiday, an additional per day fee will apply for the 3 days before, 3 days after, and 1 day of, the holiday. If your pet’s boarding falls on any or all of these days, this “Boarding - Holiday Fee Per Day” will apply for each of these days, for up to 7 days. Additional boarding fees may also apply for dogs with special medications and/or diet, and for dogs with a medical condition that requires veterinary support.

Prepare your dog’s away bag

As we state on our home page, we want our animal hospital to be the veterinary extension of your home. That includes our wish to make your dog’s boarding stay a “home away from home.” You can help grant our wish by preparing your pet’s away bag with the following items:

  • If possible, a supply of your dog’s preferred food, wet or dry, in a tightly-sealed container (see below)
  • If desired, a supply of your dog’s favorite treats
  • A supply of your dog’s current medication, if it will need to be given during his or her stay
  • If staying 2 nights or longer, any medicated shampoo needed for your dog’s mandatory bath (see below)
  • If you wish, one or two play toys or chew toys

Please do not include:

  • Dog bed, blankets, or other bedding material
  • Toys that you do not wish to become lost or stolen (we are not responsible for such items or occurrences)

Make sure vaccinations and preventatives are current

For the health and safety of all the boarders staying in our facility and of our staff, we require that pets be up-to-date on their vaccinations and parasite prevention. These include:

  • Rabies
  • Canine Influenza
  • Canine Distemper
  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Bordetella (within the past six months)
  • Intestinal parasite screening (within the past 6 months)
  • Flea & tick prevention
