Can I check-in any time?

We do have standard check-in and out times for boarding guests. Our standard check-in begins at 12pm and check out is before 12pm on the day of departure. Outside of those times is a $20 convenience fee. You are welcome to drop off anytime within our business hours.

How do I book holiday boarding?

Please give us a call for your holiday boarding needs, keeping in mind that we book up several months in advance. At the time of booking we require 50% of the stay down as a deposit.  

Our cancellation policy is as follows: This deposit is fully refundable up to 30 days prior to the start of the stay. If the stay is cancelled 15-30 days prior then the deposit will be transferred as a credit on account to use for future services. The deposit becomes non-refundable when a stay is changed or cancelled within 14 days to the start of the reservation. The deposit will be applied to the balance at checkout.

Clients with a current boarding package will only be required to put $50 down, the above policy still applies.

What is considered a holiday?

A holiday is considered three days before and after major holidays.

What are your holiday hours?

Does my dog need to be spayed/neutered?

We do not require a spay or neuter to participate in group play. We adjust our groups based on this information. If your dog is in heat, they will be required to stay home for the safety of all the dogs in our care.

How much does it cost to get my dog groomed?

Our groomers are on a tiered structure, and charge different pricing based on their experience level. Please check with our front desk for a price quote on your pup.
