Boarding

Happiness is overnight snuggles.

Town Dog’s boarding service is an extension of our off-leash daycare. After a busy day of activities, a private meal, and an evening romp around the yard, our canine guests settle down together with comfy beds and blankets. Importantly, the dogs are supervised at all times, day and night. Our caring staff stay with the dogs, most often stretched out on a bed surrounded by their furry friends.

Initial Consultation and Trial Day: All dogs must complete an initial consultation & trial day prior to using our overnight service.  The charge for your dog’s initial consultation & trial day is $35 or $50 for 2 dogs from the same family.  Consultations can be scheduled online, by phone, or at our front desk.

Frequency:  Dogs do best when they know their surroundings and routine. To keep the experience fun and familiar for your dog, Town Dog requires all boarding clients to bring their dogs to daycare once a month and a few times immediately ahead of their overnight stay.  We also ask that all of our new canine clients attend our daycare 1X a week for 4 consecutive weeks prior to any initial stay so that we may continue the evaluation process.
