Boarding

Your dog will have sweet dreams in our climate controlled, comfortable sleeping areas with soft, clean bedding and soft classical music, protected by our 24-hour Snooze Patrol. To make sure your dog fits in well and is comfortable here, we require all first-time boarders to have a minimum of two visits of daycare prior to staying overnight.

And by popular request, Happy Hound no longer has a 2-night minimum on weekends!

Your dog gives you his or her best.  Now you can return the favor even when you’re not around by giving them a super sweet experience—Super Suite Boarding.

Super Suite Boarding pampers your pet, helps alleviate separation anxiety, and showers your dog with personal love and attention day and night.  It includes:

Happy Hour: One-on-One Play Time.  This fun-filled, private play time with one of our dog handlers helps your dog exercise and burn off energy to sleep healthier and happier.   Includes 30-60 minutes of ball throwing, chasing, rope pull, and more.  Sweet!

Spa Day. After playing hard, every dog deserves to be pampered! We will send your pup home relaxed smelling like a bed of roses! Includes bath, teeth brushing, mani/pedi, anal gland expression, and brush out. Super sweet!

Snooze Patrol.  Nights away from home can be lonely and stressful for some dogs.  But our Snooze Patrol gives your dog the comfort and assurance of having the company of a staff member overnight in our executive suite area.  Sweet dreams!

Your dog deserves the best.  With Super Suite Boarding, that’s exactly what he or she gets.

Super Suite Boarding is available for a limited number of dogs on a first-come, first-served basis.

Boarding Policies

Cancellation Policy:

Non-holidays: During most of the year, you may cancel your reservation with no penalty up to one day prior to arrival.  Cancellations that occur within one day prior to check-in will result in a one night charge per guest to the credit card on file.

Holidays: Due to high demand during the holidays, we have a 10 day cancellation policy. Failure to cancel 10 days prior to arrival for holiday periods will result in a $100 charge to the credit card on file per guest. Reservations created within 10 days prior to check-in for holiday periods and subsequently cancelled also will result in a $100 charge to the credit card on file per guest. The cancellation policy is more stringent during holiday periods because we typically have to turn away potential customers during this time.

Guarantee Policy: Reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card.
