Our office hours for picking up and dropping off are:

  • Monday thru Saturday 8AM -11AM and then again 3PM thru 6PM
  • Sunday CLOSED. Also closed on all major holidays.
  • Early Monday morning pick-up only 7-8AM by appointment only.

The phones are open 7AM to 6PM Monday thru Saturday. Off hours and Sundays please leave a message and someone will get right back to you..

There are usually extended hours and/or special hours for holiday seasons. Special appointments can be set up for emergency boarding at no extra cost. However, there is an extra charge for any other “special hour” pick-up or drop-off.

We charge like a people hotel. We charge for the first day you check in, whether it is AM or PM., and every day thereafter. If the pet is scheduled to go home AM and does so, there is no charge for that day. If he stays through till the 3-6 PM hours there will be a charge for that day as well.

By limiting the office hours, the dogs stay calm and resting most of the day. We feel this simulates home life. Most dogs are home alone during the day and get a lot of rest. We feel giving them quiet time during the day helps tremendously in keeping our excellent health record.


MEDICATION: must be labeled with pets first and last name. Dosage must be clearly labeled. Application of medication will be reviewed at check in. Some medication is at no additional charge, however there is a small fee for most medications that need to actually be administered.

PLAYTIME: We have three separate play yards with plenty of shade. You can set playtime up for as often or little as you feel your pet needs.

ADDITIONAL MEALS: Most adult dogs eat once a day, but if a second meal is required there is a charge of $1.00 per extra meal. We also give treats from home or our milk bones at bedtime and throughout the day at no extra charge.

SPECIAL DIETS: Special diets need to be in a sealed container or each meal in zip locked bags. They must be clearly labeled with first and last names and the exact feeding instructions. If there is a special measuring cup please bring that also.

BATHING / GROOMING: These services are offered at additional costs. Please ask for quotes.
