Thanksgiving and Christmas are by far the busiest times for dog boarding. Bringing your dog to us for the first time during these time periods is not ideal. In general, we recommend that you try explore all other available, less stressful, and less challenging options for your dog. If you feel that this is your best, and/or only alternative, you will need to be prepared to bring your dog to us well in advance for acclimation purposes. This will involve additional out-of-pocket daycare stays beyond your initial free day, and out-of-pocket trial overnight boarding in advance of the holiday. We are requiring a $250.00 non-refundable, no-hardship deposit for all Thanksgiving and Christmas reservations. If you are unable to use all or part of your deposit you will receive credit for future service.
