Our heated and air conditioned 4000 square foot facility has a giant play room, and an overnight boarding room loaded with big comfy furniture for your best friend to relax on. Plus, we have over 5000 sq ft of securely fenced outdoor space, making our outdoor play area one of the largest in Portland.
