Boarding

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post....

As many of you know, this year has been detrimental to more business than I can count, mine included. We’ve spent the year making changes and decisions that I never dreamed we would be faced with. As a business owner, I try to be as prepared as I can be but COVID was more than any of us expected. While certain aspects of my business could be adapted, others couldn’t. With that, I have made the extremely 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐍𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝐬𝐭, 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟎 𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐥 𝐟𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞. Please know this decision did not come lightly and I’ve spent endless hours running over it in my head, trying to figure out how to keep this part of my business alive. My hope is that one day I will be able to offer boarding again. Looking into the empty yard that was once filled with dogs running and playing is truly heart wrenching and a constant reminder of what we lost this year.

Over night stays    **We do not offer daycare at this time**

Safe, secure, and fun environment in which your pooch will interact, learn and play with other dogs under close supervision. 

As our guest, your pooch will spend the day playing with it's friends in one of our three outdoor off-leash play areas, and at any time your dog can choose to relax in a "Quiet Corner". Our overnight guests will snooze in our air-conditioned/heated dog lounge, with mood lighting and music.

Our professional staff monitors all of our canine guests and provide personalized care and attention, all the while making sure that the "pack" dynamics and socialization remain safe and positive.
