Dayboarding hours are Monday - Friday 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturday - Sunday  8 a.m. -  3 p.m. Our Dayboarding Program is designed for dogs to play and have fun with our Resort Staff, rather than Group interaction with other dogs. Dayboarding is a wonderful alternative to Daycamp; each of our Dayboarding Guests stay in a Private Suite, and receive  individual Playtime or Cuddle Time and potty breaks with our Resort Staff throughout the day.

Why choose Dayboarding for your Pet? Dogs who do not enjoy playing with other dogs but still love people, dogs that are over 6 months old and not spayed or neutered, and dogs that are unable to play with other dogs due to physical limitations would all benefit from our Dayboarding program. Dayboarding services may also be utilized for a Pet that is physically limited due to recent surgery or injury.

Rates for Dayboarding are:

  • Half Day Of Dayboarding (Up To 4 Hours) - $22
  • Full Day Of Dayboarding - $36

"Great Place, Great Staff. Our dogs have been going for years.  The Best Place for boarding and daycare hands down.  The dogs love it and we do too."
