Boarding

Not your typical kennel:

At The Dog House, boarding your pet is quite different than taking him or her to a large kennel facility. Each morning, your dog’s day begins with a short play session, quickly followed by breakfast while the daycare troops arrive.

Screening:

We do not need to meet your dog prior to their first visit.  We do not have an age restriction.  We just require puppies to have Bordatella and Distemper current for their age.  We require them to have Rabies when they reach 4 months.  We will also accommodate dogs that are not dog friendly or spayed/neutered. Special arrangements will be made for them. Dogs must be people friendly. Proof of Distemper, Rabies and Bordatella vaccines must be current prior to leaving your dog.  Due to privacy policies of veterinary clinics, we can not call your vet for you to obtain these records.  For your convenience, we carry the Bordatella intranasal vaccine and can administer upon check-in if your pet’s is showing expired on their record, or they never had one. It is just $20 and will save you a trip to your vet.  Please understand, however, that it may not be fully effective for up to 2 weeks after it is given.

Throughout the day, your dog will interact with all of the canine daycare goers. He or she will not be stuck in a kennel throughout the day. Your dog will also be incorporated into all daycare activities and playgroups, indoor and outdoor.  If they are social with other dogs, they will have extensive playtime outside in the yards (weather permitting) throughout the day.  We also walk the dogs late in the evening one last time before bedtime.  

You are welcome to come check out your dog during their overnight stay if you would like them to join you for your own activities.  The cost is the same whether they participate in daycare with us or go out with you for the day.

There are a few different sleeping arrangements that your dog could have, depending on their size, temperament and physical needs.   It really is a nice vacation for your dog while you are away.

We will also accommodate dogs that are not dog friendly or spayed/neutered. Special arrangements will be made for them. Dogs must be people friendly.

Non-neutered males will not participate in group daycare activities without prior approval.

We ask that you provide your dog’s food and any special items they may need for their comfort and enjoyment. We will provide the bowls and leashes for walks.

Cancellation Policy for Overnight Boarding or Daycare:
Cancellations must be made no later than the night prior to your dog’s check-in date.  If you do not cancel prior to the night before and we are at capacity, you will be charged for your dog’s stay when you check your dog in on their next stay.
