Dogs that are already pet-friendly / people-friendly and well socialized are welcome to board and attend daycare here with us. All dogs are required to attend one full day (6 to 8 hours) of daycare for an evaluation before future boarding or daycare, because dogs go cage free and spend the majority of the day playing with their fellow guests. Evaluations must be done on all new boarding dogs.
The reason we require you to keep your dog social by attending daycare, or a quick overnight, is to try to keep our environment as safe as possible and to prevent any GI/tummy issues.
If it's been over 4 months since your dogs last visit, we require dogs to come in for 1 day of daycare or more depending on the dog.
Dogs never forget a dog they've met so they do make friends here!
Please note, we do not take dogs that are dog aggressive or people aggressive
*Note* If using a GPS and coming from the East, look for the Bell Road route. It's a much easier route.

"Linda Cates is amazing as usual. She took such good care of our Pups while we went on vacation. They had a blast and even got groomed and smelled and looked amazing. Thank you Linda for being the dog whisperer. We look forward to going away again as we know our Babies are in good hands and that is rare . You are such a blessing to all these animals.
We accept MasterCard, VISA and Discover credit cards.
With a relaxed, home style atmosphere, your pet can have a vacation experience tailored to their needs. Whether your best friend prefers quiet, or to be the center of attention, we have something for every pet.
All pets receive lots of one on one attention and are welcome to experience a cage free environment during the day. We believe pets are an extension of the family, and we will care for your pet as if they are part of our family. Under constant supervision, dogs spend 6-8 hours out of their individual kennels. Enjoying both our indoor Hound Lounge and the outdoor fenced play area that is near an acre, our floor-plan ensures that dogs have the space to move around, but we can see our guests at all times. During the night pets have individual kennel suites that are air conditioned and heated in the winter. We also have music playing 24 hours a day for your pets listening pleasure.
Our feline clients are welcome to roam the cats quarters where the sunny windows are our most popular feature.
