Boarding for dogs

Owners can choose to board their dog(s) in an indoor only run or a run where they can be inside or outside. We provide Science Diet food to our boarders along with fresh water. Owners are welcome to bring their own food. Medications will be dispensed as needed for an additional charge. Dogs will be let out at least twice per day to relieve themselves. In addition, every dog is walked mid-day. Every run is furnished with a comfy cot and blanket. Owners are welcome to bring items from home, except for foam beds.
