Is my dog ready for group play?

We temperament test all of the dogs to find out who plays best with who.  Though, we do not discriminate, we will not accept aggressive behavior.  If we feel your dog is too aggressive to play with others, we are more than happy to sit down and discuss how we can best suit your dog at our facility.  All of our experienced staff are educated by a professional dog trainer to ensure your dog is safe and happy while they are with us.

You are most welcome to bring anything that makes your dog feel more at home while they are with us.  Beds, toys, blankets etc. are great.  If you feed your dog a special diet or medicate them regularly, bring all necessary items with instructions and we will take care of the rest.  ALL BOARDING DOGS MUST BE PICKED UP BY 5PM TO GO HOME.  A 25% DEPOSIT IS DUE UPON BOOKING.
