We highly recommend reservations well in advance for our Overnight Boarding accommodations. Please refer to our cancellation policy, under Rates & Services.
Reservations are also required for Day Boarding. Preference will be given to those who schedule particular days in advance and visit us on a regular basis.
All dogs must meet the following requirements, with no exceptions:
- Must be at least 4 months old
- Must be spayed or neutered at 6 months
- Must be in good health and provide proof of vaccinations
- Must pass an evaluation (see below)
All dogs are thoroughly screened prior to being accepted for either day or overnight boarding. Each dog must pass an evaluation, which consists of spending an entire day with us. During that evaluation, we assess your dog’s ability to get along socially with both people and other dogs, with no sign of aggressive or threatening behaviors. We will also be looking at any severe separation anxiety issues, over-the-top dominance or submissiveness, and just an overall sense of how comfortable and confident they are in a large crowd and in our environment.
Evaluations are by appointment only, scheduled on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and cost $20. Evaluations are scheduled between 7 and 8:00 a.m. by appointment, and we ask that you allow a few extra minutes to fill out our application when you arrive. (You can download our application here and fill it out in advance to save time, if you’d like.) Tours are also provided during this time, and only take a few minutes. Your dog will spend the day with us and can be picked up any time between 3:00 and 6:45 p.m.
Unfortunately, we are not able to schedule evaluations or tours on the weekends.
Please e-mail or call us at 503.230.1050 to schedule your dog’s evaluation. We look forward to meeting you both!
