Boarding and Daycare


You’ll love our quiet country location on 4+ acres and the calm environment our kennel provides. We offer boarding on a very limited basis in our home (not a separate building). This ensures plenty of individual attention, exercise and playtime. We are also able to handle dogs with special needs such as geriatric dogs or those needing daily medications. During your dog’s stay, if you wish, we can provide complete grooming services. Training is also available while your dog is with us. We provide bedding (quilts, sheepskins, fleece blankets), stainless steel food dishes and water buckets, safe chew toys and bedtime treats. You provide your dog’s regular food to prevent potential digestive upset.

We are very happy that many veterinarians and their staff members, and other dog professionals in our area, both use and recommend our boarding services.

RESERVATIONS: Because we only accept a very limited number of dogs, early reservations are strongly recommended, particularly during holidays, winter and spring school vacations and the summer months. To guarantee boarding dates we ask for a deposit equal to one half of the total ESTIMATED fee at the time of reservation. This deposit can be made with a check OR we can take a credit card number. It does not have to be the card with which you pay.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Because of our intimate size, cancellations greatly affect us. For this reason we must adhere to a cancellation policy. If you must cancel it must be done 14 days prior to the scheduled stay. If for ANY reason (i.e. weather, schedule change, illness, etc.) you must cancel and do not make your cancellation 14 days ahead of time you will be charged for 50% of the cost of the days you cancel. If you call on the first day of your reservation, or any subsequent day, to cancel your reservation or simply do not show up on that reserved day, you will be responsible for the full cost of the time reserved. If you cut your trip short while your dog is already staying with us, thereby canceling reserved days, you will be responsible for the full cost of the number of days reserved. We thank you for keeping this in mind when you make your reservations.


Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM and from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

Saturday from 8:00AM to 9:00 AM.

Sunday from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

NO drop-offs or pick-ups are available on New Years’ Eve (PM), New Year’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas and Monday holiday mornings such as Memorial Day and Labor Day.

HEALTH and SAFETY: A hard copy of your dog’s vaccination record must be on file before her stay. It must show that your dog has had inoculations for Rabies, DHLPP and Bordatella (canine cough) and is up to date on all of them. For the safety of all we must have this information. All boarding dogs must be on flea and tick preventative during the months of March through November. We prefer monthly treatments, but an appropriate spray, if applied immediately before the stay, will also be accepted. We cannot accept flea collars or powders as they are not as effective.

Doggie Daycare

Your dog can spend the day with us while you are at work or gone for the day. She’ll get lots of playtime and exercise. This service is also offered on a limited basis. Grooming and training can easily be added to a daycare schedule.

Earn free Daycare for your dog. Pre-purchase 8 Daycare visits and receive a “punch-card”. Use the 8 visits within a 2 month period, for the same dog, and get one daycare visit FREE! It’s that easy!

If you would like more information about our Boarding and Doggie Daycare Services, please call and we’ll be happy to talk with you and send you a Boarding Information and Rate sheet. We would also be pleased to set up an appointment for you to visit our facility.
