Our Daily rate begins the day you Check-in and Check-out cut off time is 10:00 AM every day! Check out by 10:00 am and you do not pay for that day. Check out after 10:00 am is automatic full days charge applied to your bill.

Doors are locked from 12-2pm every day which serves as break time for guests and daycare. At this time we do not offer pick ups or drop off from 12 pm-2 pm. This gives a chance for our staff to decompress, eat lunch, and gives your pet a chance to have some lunch or a much needed downtime and rest.

Boarding Rate $49.00 per day per dog

Additional discounts are provided for multiple dogs sharing the same suite:
-Two dogs, same family in same suite, $83.00 per day for both dogs
-Three dogs same family in same suite, $125.00 per day for all three……for 3 or more dogs we have our Family suite at the Lodge, which is a large 10 x 12 foot suite!

All boarding rates are inclusive of 5 hours of play per day for all socially tolerant pets (no additional fees). All rooms are private, spacious suites with accommodations that include premium Kuranda beds for your pets comfort!
