Our climate-controlled boarding complex has a fresh air ventilation system that offers year-round temperature control. All dogs are provided with individual accommodations that are cleaned and disinfected twice daily. We will provide bowls, chew toys and bedding (upon request) for no additional charge. Our caring staff hand-walks the dogs multiple times a day, including late at night at no additional charge. Our staff records each dog’s daily eating, elimination and behavior throughout its stay. At checkout, a staff member will review the details of your dog’s stay.
