Two Locations – One Philosophy
We believe our four-legged guests deserve a home away from home – a safe environment where they can enjoy natural doggy routines of playing, resting and socializing. Both 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel offer just that:
- Large, fenced outdoor play areas with play structures, water features and plenty to sniff.
- Spacious climate-controlled indoor areas full of comfy beds, chairs and laps.
- Caring and attentive staff supervising guests day and night.
- Small-group enrichment activities with staff and fellow pups. One-on-one time with staff for those dogs who prefer people to dogs.
- Special diets
- Physical exercise
- Personal attention
- Individualized meals and/or snacks – even if it means hand feeding!
Like you at home, we learn our furry guests’ personality traits, quirky habits and individual preferences. Whether a favorite game or hand feeding, every guest gets exactly what they need.
See for Yourself
Dogs play, learn, socialize at our daycare facilities
And that's just what we offer at 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel. For everyone’s safety, we take great care to manage our guests’ excitement level and how they interact with each other. The goal is to group compatible guests together so that each day at doggy daycare is safe, fun, fulfilling.
We see benefits for dogs of all ages:
- Daycare offers early socialization for pups, helping to prevent behavior issues as they grow up.
- Daycare offers mature dogs ongoing socialization, exercise and mental stimulation, helping to prevent boredom, frustration and separation anxiety.
- Daycare keeps your senior or special needs dog on schedule for medications and special diets while you’re at work.
There's more than meets the eye in a well-managed daycare: staff training, facility design, and activities selected to bring out the best in each furry guest. Just to point out a few features of our daycare:
- Our staff is trained to manage behavior and play before tensions escalate.
- We keep our reception area quiet, allowing only one dog at a time to enter or exit.
- We carefully manage daily introductions, bringing one guest at a time into the daycare area.
- We actively supervise play all day, engaging groups of compatible dogs in a mix of structured and unstructured activities.
Take advantage of our off-street parking when dropping off and picking up your pup.
Mental stimulation of our sturdy play equipment keeps your dog engaged.
Supervised play and social interactions keep your dog safe and at ease.
Climate-controlled indoor play areas are comfortable year round.
A Fresh Concept in Dog Boarding
Choose between cage-free boarding & private suites
You can choose between kennel-free boarding or a private suite, depending on your dog's personal needs. The kennel-free boarding areas are full of futons, cushy chairs and laps to sleep on. The private suites, located at Stay Pet Hotel, are furnished with cozy beds. They get plenty of natural light and are roomy enough for dog families to stay together. We keep these areas clean, peaceful and low stress for our guests.
Our overnight guests enjoy access to all the same amenities as daycare pups. We believe it’s crucial for our boarders to have fresh air, social time, ample room to roam and the freedom to potty outdoors. To make this homey experience possible, we maintain a higher staff-to-guest ratio than most boarding facilities. We not only schedule more staff but, also, guarantee they’re physically on the premises and actively supervising our guests 24/7.
Both 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel maintain office hours seven days per week. That means you needn’t miss your pup a single day longer than absolutely necessary! There is a set time frame for check in so that everyone gets acquainted and settled well before nighttime. Check out, on the other hand, is available any time during business hours.
For your convenience, we offer ample off-street customer parking.

FAQ – General Questions
3 Dogs Boarding and Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel are owned and operated by Anne Graves and Mike Lauria. Anne is an experienced veterinary technician while Mike is a professional dog trainer. Mike has decades of experience managing cage-free boarding and daycare facilities.
Many of our staff members have prior experience in dog boarding and dog daycare facilities. Most are certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.
Yes, we have plenty of staff supervising the play all day long, and we have staff on-site, awake and with the dogs 24-hours a day.
Simple: Contact us. We schedule all evaluations in advance, to ensure that we have sufficient time to introduce each dog into our group. We don’t like to rush the process. Generally, we schedule evaluations from early-to-late afternoon to avoid interruptions by incoming boarding and daycare dogs.
You can also start by filling out our application. We'll call you to schedule the evaluation.
Dog daycare generally means that you’re leaving your dog for a period of time during the day: while your at work, taking a day trip, shopping, etc. You then pick your dog up by the end of that same day during our posted office hours.
Dog boarding simply means that you’re leaving your dog for one or more nights while on vacation, business trips, doing home renovations, etc.
One of the benefits of our unique, cage-free setup? Our staff needn't spend hours cleaning out kennels and dog runs. Instead, we immediately clean up any messes that are made while we’re supervising the groups of dogs.
In short, messes aren’t sitting for hours before being removed, which keeps our space sanitary and more odor-free than other facilities. We also do frequent, thorough cleanings of the facility. For the health of our guests and the planet, we always choose safe, environmentally friendly cleaning products.
All of the dog waste is stored in compostable bags until it’s picked up by the Green Pet Composting Company, where it is professionally composted.
