Boarding Reservations

  • Please reserve as far in advance as possible. We are frequently full, especially for holidays and long weekends. Keep in mind that if your dog has not been with us in over 12 months, we require a daycare visit so he/she will be re-acquainted with us.

We accept reservations months in advance and will gladly issue a refund for cancellations received 3 days or more in advance of your check-in date (7 day advance notice required for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and July 4th).  Any cancellation requests less than 3 days in advance will result in a store credit (7 day advance notice for holidays), and within 24 hours, you will forfeit your deposit. Thank you for respecting our policies.
