Dog Boarding Services

Kennel-free boarding. Private suites too!

We board all breedsImagine traditional dog kennels where you have to pay extra for a 15-minute walk and human interaction. At Stay Pet, we have a full-fledged daycare facility to which our boarders have full access. That’s right. Access to 8000 square feet of outdoor play structures, doggy wading pools, sprinklers and sandboxes. And 1500 square feet of climate-controlled indoor areas with chairs, comfy beds and yet more play structures. Even better, access to social interaction with staff and fellow pups all day long.

And don’t forget the 24/7 supervision by trained staff. While other facilities advertise 24-hour care, in reality they may be only monitoring their guests remotely via baby monitor or camera. By contrast, our staff are awake and with our guests at all times.

Our staff are on the alert for

  • Health issues
  • The rare medical emergency
  • Stressed or anxious dogs

And they respond immediately. Because they are onsite, they catch what might otherwise be missed, and they catch it early.

Special Needs Dogs WelcomeClimate controlled and homey indoor areas

Our trained staff are experienced at administering medication and dishing up special diets. Regarding medication, we ask only that you bring the meds in their original, labelled container. Regarding special dietary needs, simply bring the food and specify for us how much and when to dish it up. We offer the medication and special diet services at no extra charge.

Kennel-free Boarding

Pups who are used to the daycare scene really enjoy our kennel-free boarding option. By night they have the run of the sleeping areas. Our furry guests are free to sleep on a bed next to a buddy or two or three, on a cushy chair alone, or on the floor.

Roomy and bright private suitesPrivate Suites 

Reserve early to ensure we have a private suite available.

Our private suites are perfect for shy dogs or those most comfortable with their home pack mates. The suites are designed to be calming and comfortable with raised bedding, plenty of space, natural light and fresh water. Feel free to bring your dog’s favorite things: bed, toys, blankets, etc. Or we are happy to provide ours.

Suites are cleaned and sanitized between guests – your dog’s health is important to us! We pride ourself on consistently exceeding industry standards for cleanliness.
