Should any medical problems arise during your pet’s stay, you can have peace of mind that our veterinarians will make sure they are treated appropriately.

Dog Daycare

Day Boarding (doggy daycare or cat daycare for those that just need a place to stay & play for the day). 

  • If your pet has been a daycare guest with us before, you do not have to call and schedule a daycare appointment.
  • Our calendar lets you know when our daycare program is available.
  • You will be able to skip check-in and check-out if your pet is only doing doggie daycare (this does not apply if your pet is receiving any other veterinary or grooming service other than daycare).
  • We will need a credit card on file, so that we can run daycare charges each Friday (only daycare charges will be charged).
  • Daycare Release Form must be on file for each pet doing doggie daycare.
  • Each day for doggie daycare drop-off and pick-up, all you have to do is walk in and push the doorbell located directly by the kennel door. A Kennel Technician will retrieve and return your daycare pup.

Boarding & Daycare Requirements

All boarding guests must be up-to-date on vaccinations, an intestinal parasite screen, and free of fleas and ticks. If your pet requires any of these before staying with us, we are happy to provide them for an additional fee.

We require dogs to be up-to-date on:

  • Canine Distemper/Parvovirus
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough) 

We require cats to be up-to-date on:

  • Feline Distemper
  • Rabies vaccines

Reservations are preferred, especially during holidays, but we can generally accommodate last-minute or emergency boarding needs.
