Dogs will eat, rest, and sleep in one of our spacious indoor lodging options (see below for accommodation descriptioins)
As we are a Training & Enrichment Center, all dogs are required to participate in a daily Enrichment Activity chosen by their guardian at time of reservation.
We consider playtime an important part of caring for your dog while you're away! But, it's not the ONLY thing.
We also provide one on one enrichment activities for your dog, throughout the day, to facilitate brain work resulting in a confident, happy, and relaxed dog.
(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 session 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.
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 session along with a couple of days of playcare or enrichment daycare prior to boarding 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!

Enrichment/Playtime Activity Choices
Group Play (Playcare)
Your dog will participate in a play session with other fun, friendly dogs their size and play style. This session lasts for approximately 30 minutes and is monitored by one of our Professional and loving Caretakers.
This fun activity includes a cardboard box filled with surprises such as peanut butter, yummy treats, and even a fun toy. These items are placed in a box, stuffed with an assortment of challenging items such as smaller boxes, newspaper, and paper towel or toilet paper tubes and then taped shut so your dog can rip, tear, and snuffle their way to finding their own yummy treats. The licking and foraging involved in this fun activity releases hormones that effectively calm and satisfy your dog assuring a feeling of calm and relaxation. Most dogs enjoy a nice long, restful nap after completing this activity.
Dinner in a Box
This fun activity is much the same as a party box but instead of just yummy treats and challenging items being placed in the box, we also place your dog’s dinner inside. We only provide these boxes for dinner as they are a fantastic way for your dog to use up their last bits of mental, emotional, and physical energy before heading out for their final potty of the night and then getting a great night’s sleep.
Nose Work Activity
This activity assures your dog uses their very specialized nose to find yummy treat which increases calming hormones and decreases stress hormones. We will customize the course to your dogs ability so they, succeed and have a blast. Whether they are novice and only using cups and paper plates or advanced and using our specialized equipment, they are assured to have a sniff-a-licious good time!
Confidence Work Activity
What dog couldn’t use an extra boost to their confidence? Choose this option and we will play games with your dog that offer your pup the opportunity to try something new, make a choice to move something, place their feet on a new surface, solve an access problem…all sorts of fun activities where your dog gets to try and SUCCEED! This is so much fun and the end result is a boost in confidence!
We have offered this option for many years and dogs LOVE it! Your dog will go on a special walk with one of our Caretakers, off property. We are fortunate to have areas around us with woods, a ravine, and plenty of sniffing opportunities. This option gives your dog a chance to stretch their legs and go somewhere where the sniffs and sights are new and fantastic! We also include on-leash manners work with this option by using choice sits as well as turn games to help your dog walk nicely while on leash.
One on One Playtime
This is another enrichment option we have offered for many years that the dogs LOVE! One of our Caretakers will play with your dog using their favorite activities. Fetch? No problem. Chasing water from the hose? We can do that! Running around the yard and playing on the play equipment? Ooooo, that’s fun! Whatever activities your dog enjoys will be combined with some impulse control work such as calm sits, wait work, and attention to work not only your dog’s body but their brain as well.
This is by far, is one of our Caretaker’s favorite enrichment activities. I’m not sure who is more enriched, our Caretaker or your pup. This is a special one on one time where your dog will receive massage, belly and ear rubs, and plenty of snuggles along with some easy, calming enrichment games that promote relaxation and emotional satisfaction. Truth be told, I have had to wake up a Caretaker from time to time who had fallen asleep snuggled up to the pup they were cuddling with.
Board & Train - per day ------------ $45/Day
For existing training clients only
If your dog loves to play with other dogs, they will get to participate in our Playcare Program on their training days. If they do not, our team of loving and dedicated Dog Caretakers will give them plenty of one-on-one attention with additional enrichment such as fun walks, cuddles, and one-on-one play.
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.
