Our Boarding Philosophy

In pioneering the concept of social dog boarding over 24 years ago, our philosophy has been simple: Provide a clean, safe, well chaperoned environment in which to board dogs socially.

We believe that dogs, gregarious by nature, have excellent social skills and that the company of one another helps diminish the anxiety of boarding and being away from home. To see them together, either in playful moods or totally relaxed, or to see the friendships borne in our establishment is to understand the humanity of our concept. A wagging tail is what we’re all about; it’s our goal and our greatest reward.

Constant human touch and a homey environment are also fundamental to our boarding philosophy. With our staff of devoted animal lovers and the singular attention we give each pet, it’s natural that we get to know our boarders. The scratch behind the ear or the Eskimo kiss is an instinct we don’t have to coach.

We’re the first to tell you that our concept isn’t suitable for all dogs. However, for those with a neighborly disposition, you will find no better environment for both the physical and emotional care your pet deserves.

Fleas and Ticks

We do not accept pets with fleas or ticks. If needed, we can arrange to have our groomers bathe your pet with their special flea and tick preparation.


We require reservations, especially during busy holiday weekends. You;ll find the reservation and check-in process quite convenient once your pet’s file has been established. Though staff is on hand 24-hours a day, we ask that you make your reservations during our normal store hours (8:00am to 8:00 pm) and that any cancellations be made at least two days prior to boarding.

On holidays only, the 48-hour cancellation policy must be adhered to or we will charge your credit card for the intended stay. We provide 1/2 day and full-day, daycare for those who would like to break the “home alone” monotony. We accept VISA, MasterCard and AMEX and require a valid credit card number on file. However, you may use any payment you choose.

Please note that we will apply a peak surcharge of $8 per night for boarding and $6 per day of daycare to the below listed prices. This will apply for November 22nd to 26th, and December 22nd to January 2nd.
