Dog Boarding

We are open for boarding with modified hours, curbside service and exercise during the state mandated health restrictions.

Doggy Haven Resort is happy to offer all dogs boarding with us their own personal, cozy room with full glass-front, 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 now be participating in Doggy Haven University activities at no additional charge. Activity levels can easily be adjusted if you have an older dog or a medical condition that requires a little more rest during the day. 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


Create an account with Gingr, our online service, to fill in all of the necessary information for you and your companions! You can also schedule, buy packages, and upload vaccination files from the customer portal. See our quick guide for more information on how to get started today!

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 negative 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 Boarding Trial Day (non-overnight) prior to your visit. Trials can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 9:00 am for $38 (reduced rate available for a second or third dog also doing a trial at same time). We only have space for one family at each of these times, so please plan ahead. 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, regardless of time, and include daily playtime (up to 8 hours each day), feeding, administration of medications, and personal time with a resort companion. One dog is $59, a second dog is $49 additional per day, a third dog is $44 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!

A deposit of $75 is required to reserve a room for boarding stay over 2 nights in length. 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.

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 2:00 pm to 4:00 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-Friday8:00 am - 6:00 pmClosed from 12:00 - 2:00 pm
Saturday8:00 am - 10:00 am4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sunday8:00 am - 10:00 am4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

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 2:00 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.

Important Policies

The safety of our dogs and staff is very important to us. Due to our insurance coverage and the nature of our business we adhere to the following policies:

  • Only socialized dogs are allowed at Doggy Haven Resort
  • New dogs will need to complete a trial day
  • Here is a list of PURE BRED dogs that GENERALLY are not a good fit for our playgroups. If your dog is one of the breeds below, please feel free to call so we can discuss the temperament and socialization of your companions to see if they would be a good fit.
    • Akita
    • American Staffordshire Terrier
    • Bull Mastiff
    • Chow Chow
    • Pit Bull
    • Rottweiler
  • Based on our experience with pure-bred German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois and their powerful herding instinct, we do not accept them for boarding or daycare. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
  • Spay and Neuter Requirements:
    • Female dogs must be spayed, if over 6 months of age
    • Male dogs must be neutered, if over 6 months of age
    • No exceptions allowed
  • SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING SENIOR DOGS Our philosophy of always doing what is best for every dog means we recognize that we are not the right place for every dog. It can be extremely stressful for any dog in a new place or new situation, and issues commonly related to stress can be especially rough or even dangerous for elderly and/or dogs with certain medical conditions. Please always inform your vet about your plans to board your precious family member in a high activity environment without overnight supervision. If your dog has the following needs or conditions, please consider boarding at a vet, a facility with a licensed veterinarian on staff, or a qualified in home pet sitter:
    • Require 24 hour supervision
    • Problems eating or drinking, especially in new places, outside of a normal occasional skipped meal
    • Moderate, severe, or extreme anxiety of any kind
    • Refusal to take required medication
    • Issues with other dogs, or any older dog that has never socialized
    • Severe mobility issues (ask if you think your dog has minor mobility issues)
    • Dementia

    We want your dog to stay healthy during their stay. If you have any questions regarding the above, please call so that we can get a complete understanding of your dogs needs.

Emergency Vet Services

In the event of an emergency, Doggy Haven Resort will make every attempt to contact you. If we are unable to contact you, we will take your dog to a local veterinary center of our choosing. All emergency services required for your dog will be charged to you at the time of pick-up.
