What to Pack 

Once your dog is approved to stay with us, don’t forget to bring:

  • Your dog’s food and any treats you’d like them to enjoy. We also offer special “sleepy-time” treats you can sign up for at check-in.
  • Blankets, toys, or other special items to make the boarding suite feel even more like home. They must be able to have these items unsupervised.
  • Medications if needed. Any medications are administered free of charge.

How Will My Dog Spend Their Boarding Days? 

All dogs on vacation at the Lodge must attend dog daycare. Boarding dogs spend 10 hours of their day socializing with other dogs and only retire to their suites for meals, naptime and overnight. In order to attend daycare, they must pass a basic temperament test, showing they are friendly and attend at least one half-day of daycare prior to their first extended stay with us.

When vacationing at the Lodge, all dogs enjoy fun days of daycare with 10 hours of play. They only take breaks for naptime, mealtimes, and to sleep at night. The price of daycare, which all dogs must attend is $26/per day. The full price of a boarding stay is the price of daycare ($26/day) plus $15/night. We encourage all dogs to arrive in time for at least a half day of daycare ($16) on their drop-off day. This makes their first night away from home less stressful. There is no charge for daycare on your last day if you pick up by 10 AM.

Dogs from the same family are more than welcome to share a suite for an additional $5/dog per night. remember that each dog is required to attend daycare.


There is a 5% discount for extended stays that are 10 days or longer. Additional discounts are available with the use of daycare passes. Pricing for daycare passes is on our daycare page. We also offer discounted and free grooming services for boarding dogs!
