With 4.5' by 10' rooms, our guests have the most personal space in the area!


    Here at the Resort, we believe that lots of play-time and interaction with both staff members and other dogs are the key to keeping your pup as relaxed and stress-free as possible while you are away! All of our dog-friendly guests are included in playgroups that are determined by age, size and temperament. We keep the groups smaller for our geriatric and/or shy friends. With several indoor play areas, there is plenty of space for anyone who would prefer to spend their day relaxing indoors.

        You may be surprised to learn that a dog you thought was aggressive may have just been nervous or protecting you, part of their pack! One of our frequent boarders is a beagle named Molly. The very first time she stayed, her mom told us she was very aggressive with other dogs so she probably shouldn't go out with a group. While boarding, any time another dog walked past, Molly would wag and wiggle and bark all over her room. Her obviously non-aggressive posture and behavior prompted us to give Molly a chance in a group setting. We walked her outside on a leash next to a very easy-going staff-dog... and she was perfect. Even though at first she laid back and watched the others play, starting Molly with a small group (3 to 4 other dogs) was a great way to boost her social skills and confidence. Eight months later, she's actually playing and interacting with her peers in a larger group!

        While boarding, pups spend Nap Time and nights in their rooms which are separated by concrete walls and fencing. Everyone gets their very own raised bed and fleece blanket to maximize their down-time comfort.

You may be asking, "So what is a normal day like for my pup?"


The techs came in, scratched me behind the ears and asked me to sit before giving me BREAKFAST!  The dog across the hall doesn't normally eat in the morning, but they gave him a Milkbone with peanut butter on it so he wasn't left out.  I didn't want an upset tummy, so I rested for a little while after eating
8:00am This was my favorite part:  Time to go outside and play with my friends!  There was a new kid today, so my group started slowly, but once we were all together we had lots of fun running and wrestling!  The older dog's don't want to play as much as we do, so they had a yard with a pool and lots of shade all to themselves.  The little dogs had their own space, too!
12:00pm After we tired ourselves out, we went to our individual rooms for Nap Time.  We all had beds and fleece blankets waiting for us, and then my second favorite part happened:  I got a special treat!  My favorite snack is the homemade doggy ice cream!  With something yummy in my belly, I was more than ready to rest for a few hours.
3:00pm My favorite part again!  There weren't any new kids to introduce so we got started right away, jumping in the pool, climbing on the play sets and running through the sprinkler.  I greeted the old dogs and littles through the fence, but didn't stay long.  I'd much rather play with my friends!
5:30pm All of us that are spending the night went back to our rooms for dinner.  Not as spectacular as snack time, but since my mom packed food for me, I had a taste of home while on vacation!
6:00pm I was so tired that I didn't even want to play, but I knew this was my last chance to potty before bedtime.  My two-legged friends made sure my bed and blankets were clean and my water bucket was full so I'd have everything I'd need until they got back in the morning.
6:30pm The techs just left.  All of our gates are locked and the kennel is almost silent!  Time for a good night's sleep before doing it again tomorrow!
