Dogs will eat, rest, and sleep in one of our spacious indoor lodging options (see below for accommodation descriptions)
As we are a Training & Enrichment Center, we include enrichment throughout the day and offer Enrichment Activities you may add on to increase your dog's fun and brain work during their stay.
We consider playtime an important part of caring for your dog while you're away! But, it's not the ONLY thing.
If your dog attends our Playcare on a regular basis (weekly), they will automatically get to play with their friends when they board with us, at no additional charge. For all other pups, if this is an Enrichment Activity you would like to choose for your pup while boarding, choose it when you make your reservation.
All of our Enrichment Activities are geared toward facilitating thinking, solving problems, and winning. This results in a confident, happy, and relaxed dog. Check out our list of Enrichment Activities you may add to your dog's stay and make your dog's stay is not only fun but doggone rewarding.
Enrichment Activities get a 4-Paw rating from dogs!!
(Please note: We are not able to accommodate dogs who are aggressive toward humans.)
We require that your dog has come for a meet-n-greet day prior to boarding with us. This allows us to get to know your pup's personality, likes and dislikes, and ensures that your dog will have the best and most enriching time possible at TDS. (A new meet a greet must occur if your dog has not attending playcare, enrichment care or been boarding with us for a year or longer.)
By coming for a meet-n-greet, your dog will be much more relaxed and ready for fun during their stay. The Dog Spot is where he had so much fun before! He will probably pull you in the door!
We've found the best way to keep our guests healthy and happy is to have dogs attend a meet-n-greet day along with a couple of days of playcare or enrichment daycare prior to boarding with us. This also helps us better advise you on which add-on enrichment activities are best for your dog during their stay with us.
The Dog Spot has a professionally monitored security system and security cameras. The owner and manager have access to view the camera's, live, 24 hrs a day.
We charge just the same as a human hotel. Drop off whenever is convenient for you during our open-door hours.
Check out time is by noon (at noon and 7 p.m. on Sunday) on your pick up day. If you are unable to pick up by noon, you will incur a nominal late pick-up fee.
Please note our open office hours and plan accordingly.
Reservations & Cancellations
Due to our limited boarding space, we fill up early for most holidays, most weekends, and many weekdays, especially in the summer. It is advisable that you book your reservation as far in advance as possible.
We require a deposit equal to one night's stay.
We will call you to confirm your reservation several days prior to your dog's stay with us. If you need to cancel your reservation, kindly provide us with at least 72 hours notice.
Any no-shows or cancellations within 72 hours of drop-off day will forfeit their deposit.
On weekends, even though we have reduced open door hours, our team of dedicated Caretakers are still hard at work caring for your fuzzy family member(s). Their schedule of feeding, fun, activities, enrichment, and rest does not change.
We strive to maintain a consistent schedule even when we are not open to the public.
We wouldn't keep our own dogs contained for 12 hours and we WON'T do it to yours!

What To Bring
At the time of check-in, you will fill out a reservation form describing feeding and medicating instructions for your dog. We administer medications at no additional charge. This is the time to decide on which enrichment activities and any fun add-on's you want your dog to have during their stay. Choose from lots of fun activities, enrichment, and training options. We believe in choice for dogs and we believe in choice for you!
Please bring your dog's own food in a sealed plastic container. Each container must be clearly marked with your last name and your dog's name. If you forget your food or don't wish to bring it, we will feed your dog our house food for $2.00 per cup.
You may bring your dog's favorite blanket or bedding and we will do our best to return it to you in the condition you gave it to us. However, please note that this is an interactive environment and your personal item may get dirty or ruined. We provide blankets and other fluffy bedding along with a great chew toy for each dog at nap time and bedtime.
Remember...your dog will be so exhausted from playing and being enriched all day that all they'll do is sleep when they are in their sleeping space.
