Dog Boarding

Doggy Haven Resort is happy to offer all dogs boarding with us their own personal, cozy room with full glass-front (no chain-link kennels), kept cool by a climate-controlled facility and warmed with radiant-floor heating. Each room comes complete with a comfortable bed and soft, clean bedding, plus 24/7 access to clean water – our rooms are also plenty big enough to accommodate most bedding from home if your companion has a favorite blanket or bed. If you are interested in boarding multiple dogs, we can certainly place them in the same room if they get along well, two large dogs or up to four small dogs may comfortably share one of our suites together. Doggy Haven also offers Double-Rooms, featuring two rooms with an adjoining door for families with multiple dogs who can be together sometimes, but would benefit from their own space at mealtime and overnight.

Boarding dogs will have up to 8 hours every day of group playtime, though this can easily be adjusted if you have an older dog or a medical condition that requires a little more rest during the day. Group playtime is provided for your pet at no additional charge, it is included in the price of the stay. We also offer Additional Services to make sure your pooch is even more pampered during their stay with us! Don’t forget to schedule a bath (with or without a haircut as well) on their departure day so that your companion can go home smelling great.

Our two-week Board & Train program was created to teach dogs basic obedience through daily, personalized and professional training while you’re away on your trip! Your dog’s knowledge will grow and focus will intensify as he learns and perfects his skills in an environment full of distractions and activity. This program benefits dogs of all ages and levels of experience.

Boarding Requirements


All new dogs require a completed and signed Pet Profile with your deposit, generally taken care of during the trial day of daycare. Please be sure to read all the terms and conditions on the back. If mailing or faxing your application, you MUST call to confirm your reservations after submitting your application.

Vet Check-up

For all stays with us, it is important that dogs have UP-TO-DATE vaccinations which include: Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella (good for either 6 months or 1 year), and a clean fecal exam. Please note this does not mean we require all new vaccinations, only up-to-date vaccinations. Exceptions to the vaccination requirements are made at the owner’s risk, with a veterinarian’s recommendation. Additionally, if your dog has health problems that you believe we should be aware of, please take a copy of our Veterinary Exam Form to your veterinarian to complete.


We want all visits to Doggy Haven to be successful! Having new dogs participate in trial days ensures that your dog will be healthy and happy in our group play environment, and give them a chance to come have fun and then get to go home at the end of the day in preparation for longer overnight stays.

For dogs that have not spent the night with us before and want to spend more than two nights on your first stay, please complete a daycare trial prior to your visit. Trials can be scheduled Monday through Friday for $38 (reduced rate available for a second or third dog also doing a trial at same time). Paperwork and veterinary requirements must be completed prior to this visit, including a negative fecal exam within two weeks of trial date. A first time stay of only one or two nights can be considered a trial under the right circumstances, please call to confirm with us.

Deposit and Cancellation Policy

A deposit of $75 is required to reserve a room for boarding. Deposit is non-refundable if cancellation is made within 14 days (30 days prior during our holiday periods) of first boarding day, or is a no show without satisfactory explanation of circumstances.

Food, Medication, and Toys

Food and medications must be clearly labeled with your dog’s name and include clear instructions for administration (quantity, times per day, length of time, etc.). Ample food and medications must be provided to cover your dog’s full length of stay plus a few days extra (just in case). You may bring up to 3 toys and an unwashed garment with your smell on it to comfort your dog at night.

Flea Control

If your dog is not on a monthly flea control all year round, a CAPSTAR tablet will be given upon arrival for boarding. This tablet eliminates any fleas your pet may have and is safe to use even if they are already on a flea control program. A $6 charge per CAPSTAR will be added to your bill.

Room Rates

Boarding rates are charged per night, starting on the drop off day no matter what, and include daily playtime (up to 8 hours each day), feeding, administration of medications, and personal time with a resort companion. One dog is $55, a second dog is $40 additional per day, a third dog is $30 additional per day. Please feel free to call if you have more than three dogs or have a unique situation, we will be happy to work with you to make sure we can accommodate your needs!

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Hours

Although we do not have set times for dropping off boarding dogs, we recommend coming in the morning between 8 am and 11 am to maximize their time in the yard and allow them to get used to the facility and their new furry friends. In the afternoon the best time to drop off would be 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. If you do need to drop off your dog near to our closing hours on weekdays at 6:00 pm, please feed your dogs their dinner if at all possible, this will help us give them as much time as possible in the yard before dogs are brought in for the evening.

Monday-Friday7:00 am - 6:30 pmClosed from 12:00 - 1:00 pm daily
Saturday9:00am - 4:00pm
Sunday10:00 am - 12:00 pm, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Closed all major holidays.

When picking up your dogs, check out is any time prior to 12:00 pm, this will result in no additional fees. If you must pick your dog up after 1:00 pm please note that while this is possible, it will result in an additional day being added to the boarding total. The only exception to this is if your dog is scheduled to have a bath or groom on the departure day, there will be no charge regardless of pick up time.
