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.
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 out of their kennels throughout the day.
We do not need to meet your dog prior to their first visit. We accept all breeds, however, we do reserve the right to exclude certain dogs based on temperament for the safety of themselves as well as the other dogs. We do not have an age restriction. We just require puppies to have Bordetella and Distemper current for their age and in their system for at least 2 weeks prior to their stay. We require them to have Rabies when they reach 4 months. Dogs must be people friendly. Proof of Distemper, Rabies and Bordetella vaccines must be current and on file in order to submit your reservation. For proper immunities and safety, all first-time dogs must have vaccines in their system for at least 2 weeks prior to their stay. Due to privacy policies of veterinary clinics, we can not call your vet for you to obtain these records.
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. (Click on the slide-out menu next to Boarding or Daycare menus for rates.)
Non-neutered males over 6 months and female dogs in heat are not accepted.
Dog-aggressive dogs and those with special needs due to injury, age, or owner preference are required to reserve a suite, as they cannot board in the same area as the other guests, for the safety of themselves as well as the other dogs. They also require more personalized care and space to keep them comfortable.
We ask that you provide your dog’s food and any medications they need for their stay. We will provide the bowls, leashes, and bedding.
