COVID-19 Temporary Service Changes
Stay Pet Hotel hours and services remain the same. Until further notice, 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare will not provide boarding. 3 Dogs clients are welcome to use Stay Pet Hotel. You can drop your dog off at 3 Dogs, and we'll transport them to Stay Pet Hotel. Or you can drop them off at Stay Pet directly for boarding.
Once you've parked in our lot, please stay in your car and call our front desk. A staff member will come to your car and fetch your dog. Please keep your dogs securely leashed when handing them off to us. Also, please have all drop off items, such as food or medicine, ready to go.
After arriving in our lot, please stay in your car and call our front desk. A staff member will bring your dogs out and load them into your car. Any leftover food, medicine, etc. will be returned at this time.
Please give us a call and pay over the phone.

Dog Boarding Services
Kennel-free boarding. Private suites too!
It's our philosophy to provide an environment that's as close to home as possible. We feel it's crucial to every dog's well-being to play, socialize, learn and rest at their own tempo. At 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel, we get to know your furry companion during their stay. We go the extra mile to introduce them to new friends, love on them and meet both their physical and emotional needs.
Give your pup a true home away from home while you're away.
What's Boarding Like at 3 Dogs?
3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare is 100% kennel-free. Our facility is designed to be a safe, comfortable and spacious environment for dogs. Every shift is fully staffed to ensure all guests are actively supervised and doing something they love.
We’re open for doggy boarding 7 days per week, so we’re here for you to drop off and pick up your dog every day. That means no delays reuniting with your canine companion should you arrive home from a trip on a Sunday (office hours: 10 a.m.-6p.m.).
While always 100% cage-free, 3 Dogs offers the same services as Stay Pet Hotel. To list a few:
- Trained staff interact with our furry guests, whether to manage behavior, provide enrichment or give cuddles.
- Staff are onsite and actively with our guests 24/7 – year round.
- Our large outdoor play area is fully fenced and dog-friendly.
- Indoor spaces are climate controlled.
- We administer medication and special diets for free.
Trained and Caring Staff
Staff are experienced at managing canine behavior to keep arousal levels from getting too high and anxious dogs from homesick and stressed. All of this training translates into a fun, safe and enriching staycation for your pup.
Our Top Priority Is Your Pup’s Health and Well Being
Many boarding facilities advertise 24 hour supervision when they have no personnel awake and onsite at night. Instead, they have a video cam or baby monitor to keep tabs remotely.
We do things differently. Our staff are awake and with our guests all night long. Doing so enables us to detect and respond to our furry boarders’ needs as they arise. Separation anxiety? A staff member will be there to soothe it away. A nighttime medical emergency? Our staff is always there to ensure dogs get any necessary medical care, day or night.
More Room Means Calmer, Happier Dogs
Our boarding environment is as close to home as can be. The 4000 square foot indoor area has heat and air conditioning throughout. It features plenty of beds, couches, chairs, pillows and even warm laps for your dog to relax on. Our boarders can sleep when they want; play when they please; get pets when they wish; eat on their accustomed schedule. We encourage them to behave as naturally as they would at home.
And like at home, we keep it all clean. There's always a mop and a bucket at hand for cleaning and sanitizing any messes.
That said 3 Dogs is the Disneyland of boarding/daycare facilities. Both indoor and outdoor areas offer a variety of play structures, from play houses to slides. Additionally, the spacious 6000 square foot outdoor park has water features, like sprinklers and wading pools, to cool off in.
Your Dog Has Special Needs? No Problem
Our boarding fee is all-inclusive. We administer medication, feed special diets and feed multiple times per day for free.
Help Us Give Proper Care
We'll team up with you to keep your pup on their routine. We ask that you:
- Bring medications in their original bottle.
- Label special diets.
- Bring whatever snacks you normally give your pup.
- Leave us specific instructions on how often you feed, how much and approximately when.
Maintaining your four-legged friend's routine is yet another way we make guests feel at home.
All guests are fed separately and then brought back into the common areas.
Boarding Enrollment Process
To ensure our furry guests get along, we screen all applicants before accepting them into our boarding facility.
Our Intake Process
There are a few steps to the enrollment process.
- Get started by filling out and submitting an application, and we'll contact you to schedule a temperament test.
- Or you can call or email us at Stay Pet Hotel.
- You bring your pup to daycare for a free trial day of daycare.
Please plan way ahead. We often get backed up, particularly during the holiday season. Sometimes it's a few weeks before we have available appointments to conduct your dog’s temperament test.
If we’re booked during your time frame, feel free to check with Stay Pet Hotel on their availability.

Our rates for kennel-free boarding are the same at both dog boarding facilities. Even better, both 3 Dogs Boarding & Daycare and Stay Pet Hotel offer special discounts when you board multiple dogs or board long-term.

Instructions – Boarding
Drop off & Pick up
Check In Instructions
We require all dogs coming to us for boarding to be checked in by 12 p.m. on check-in day. Feel free to drop off your dogs as early as you like on their check-in day – the daycare care is included in your boarding rate.
We have found that giving boarding guests time to play and socialize helps them settle in for a peaceful night. That's why we require check in by noon.
Check Out Details
Dogs picked up after 12 p.m. on their pickup day will be charged for an additional 1/2-day per dog of daycare.
Entering the Reception Area
For the safety and well being of all concerned, please wait with your dog until there are no other dogs in the office before entering.
We take great care to introduce incoming guests one at a time. This practice enables us to give all of our guests a positive – not overwhelming – experience.
FAQ – Dog Boarding
No, our third-shift staff are awake and in our boarding area with the dogs.
The dogs sleep on futon beds, papasan chairs and even the floor if that’s what they prefer. We have plenty of bedding available, though most of the dogs prefer to pile up together on a couple of the futons.
We have crates available if that’s your preference, yet people rarely choose that as an option. Also, Stay Pet Hotel offers private suites for sleep time.
We carefully evaluate every dog that stays with us, not only to find out if our setup is appropriate and safe for them but, also, to make sure that they are comfortable in our environment.
We invite owners to watch as we conduct the initial temperament evaluation. This way you’re seeing what we’re seeing.
Special diets and meds are no problem. We have many years of experience working with dogs requiring medication and/or with special dietary needs.
Just bring whatever food or medication when you leave your dog for boarding. We'll take care of the rest at no extra charge!
No, there’s no up-charge for managing your dog’s medications.
Don’t worry, we don’t feed the dogs in groups. We have several large crates that we set up at feeding times where every dog is fed separately. For dogs that cannot be crated, we have a number of sectioned-off areas where they can eat on their own.
We only require you to bring your dog’s food and any medication they are currently taking.
There’s no need to bring bedding – we have plenty of it, and there’s always the possibility that personal bedding could be damaged.
We don’t allow toys, bones, treats, etc. in the group. If you’d like to bring something for your dog to chew on, we can always separate them for a short period of time to enjoy personal treats or toys.
We have plenty of food bowls, puzzle bowls and slow feeders as well. No need to bring your own. Just let us know if you have a preference.
