  • What if my pet is boarding but not in play group?
    That's totally fine! All pets get one-on-one attention from resort attendants during their stay. Attendants will take the time to learn what your pet enjoys doing. Activities can range from daily massage, cuddles, story time, playing ball or outdoor play time.

    Not at this time.

All dogs must allow our staff to safely put a slip lead on them and move them into play and potty areas. All dogs must allow us to enter their lodging space safely. *If your dog has never been to a boarding facility we recommend scheduling a trial day before boarding.
  • What is the play group evaluation process?
    Your dog will be dropped off with us at 10am. They will be assigned their own daycare lodge for the day. Your dog will go into their lodge for 30 minutes before the evaluation begins to help them “reset” after leaving you. We will then start the evaluation by assessing how your dog does with human interactions. Provided they feel comfortable with that, we will then start bringing dogs into the indoor daycare area, starting with our calmest dog and ending with our most rambunctious dog. This will help determine your pet's comfort level and play styles. The Pet Resort uses Doggie Daycare 2.0 play style which provides physical as well as mental stimulation.
  • What is the lodging experience like for my pet?
    Each lodging guest will receive 3-4 individualized sessions with a lodging attendant throughout the day. In addition, all guests receive potty breaks/lodging checks every two hours. There are 3 scheduled mealtimes throughout the day. All stays include one report card emailed and/or texted within 24 hours of checking in. This report card includes a photo and update. Additional report cards can be added onto any stay at an additional fee.
