Making a Reservation for a Non Holiday:

When you call to make a reservation for your dog we will first make sure you have a credit card on file with us. Then we will charge a deposit on that card  that is equal to one day and one night ($40.00/ single and  $68.00/ for 2 dogs). The deposit will be applied towards your dogs stay. Once your dog is dropped off for their stay the remaining balance will be charged to the card we have on file.

Making a Reservation for a Holiday:

You will need a credit card on file when you call to make your holiday reservation, we will then charge a 50%  non refundable deposit.

We also require a 3 night minimum stay for all holidays. Once your dog is dropped off for their stay the remaining balance will be charged to the card we have on file.

Important Information-

  • Reservations are required. You may not drop your dog off unless you have called us and made a prior reservation.
  • New dogs must interview and play for a day prior to overnight reservations to insure your dog will enjoy their stay.

Prices –

$16.00 per night plus our daycare rate. Overnight care is paid in advance at the time of drop off. We must have a credit card on file. We take Visa, MC, check and cash. Sorry we do not accept American Express or Discover. A NSF charge of $25 applies to any returned checks.

  • 10% discount given with 5 nights or more.
  • Your dog will get a free bath if their stay is 7 nights or more.

You have a 30 minute window after we open to pick up your dog without accruing any daycare charges. After 30 minutes there will be a half day charge or a full day charge if you pick up in the PM. Please give us a call to let us know you cannot make your pick up time.

 

What do I bring for my dog’s overnight stay?

FOOD:

Your own dogs food is the most important need! We do not want to subject your dog to having loose stool or an upset stomach because of a dietary change. You will fill out a kennel card at drop off for your dogs’ feeding instructions on food and treats. We do not free feed so please be specific with daily amount ( ex: 2 cups AM and 2 cups PM). We have beds, bowls and measuring cups; you do not need to bring yours. We can refrigerate food if needed. If your dog runs out of food, the charge is $ 3 per meal.

TREATS:

We DO NOT give our dogs rawhide treats of any kind. They can be a choking hazard. We are happy to give treats that are 100% digestible. No bones please.

BEDS:

If you bring bedding we must be able to unzip the cover and wash it in case it gets soiled. Please do not bring any bed that you are attached too. We will NOT be responsible for any items that could be damaged due to destructive chewing that may occur during their stay. We do supply kuranda beds that get your dog off the floor. Our dogs love these beds so honestly keeping your bed at home is easier and it won’t get potentially ruined. You may bring a blanket or towel if you’d like and we can put that on top of our kuranda beds.

MEDICATIONS:

We will be happy to give medication to your dog at NO extra charge. All medication must come in the original bottle prescribed by your vet. Let us know at the time of drop off of what doses have already been given that day. We also need to be aware of any and all health issues (seizures, colitis, etc.) so we can give your dog the best possible care.

MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION:

Label all of your dogs’ belongings. If you or your dog are attached to something please do not bring it for boarding.

No toys of any kind. They tend not to be played with here so keep them safe at home. Your dog will appreciate their favorite stuffed toy or bone when they get home.

Will I have a clean dog on pick up?  You may request a bath on your kennel card when dropping them off for their stay. Your dog will receive a free bath if their stay was longer than 7 nights.

“Hi, I’m Finnegan, a Dumb Friends League alum. I have a LOT of energy, and sometimes when I am home alone, I find things to play with like sofa cushions, table legs, remotes, etc. They are so FUN to chew! I didn’t quite get it when my parents came home and would be so upset…they must have had another tough day at work. Anyway, about 6 months ago, my mom & dad started bringing me to the BBY a few times a week. Since coming here, for some strange reason, my parents don’t walk in the door form work & cringe or look frustrated! I now love playing with my toys & not those stupid sofa cushions. I bark less at the neighborhood dogs & I have made a LOT of new friends, human & canine! The humans are so nice, they all know my name & let me play with little pups, new dogs & my other friends.”
