"Just" BoardingAre you going out of town and need a place to board your dog? Without the training? We can help! We only have 10 kennels, so your dogs will receive plenty of personalized attention, walks, ball play, etc. They can even hang out with us in the office during the day. If they are dog-friendly, they will be able to play with other boarders. (We also offer "Dayboarding", for when you just need the dog out of the house for the day).
This is a great option for nervous/shy dogs, who don't do well in large facilities, due to the stress and noise level.
Since we are all experienced trainers, we are able to handle dog and people aggressive dogs who may not be accepted at a "mainstream" facility.
The risk for kennel cough is greatly reduced at our facility, due to the low number of boarders.
If your dog barks, lunges, air snaps, or has bitten a person you will need to follow this protocol to board your dog with us.
Set up a 15 minute Meet&Greet ($10) to meet you and your dog and set up your client portal. We do request a 50% deposit for boarding reservations. Boarding a cautious dog is $50/night, a people cautious dog is $79/night.
Next, set up times to bring in your dog for several Meet&Greets that are 10-15 minutes ($10) to meet the staff and get used to the facility. When you bring your dog in, please come inside without your dog first, and make sure we are ready for you both. You will also want to bring high value treats, cheese or chicken. Something they love and only get when they come to House of Dog Training. When we meet your dog at the initial meeting, we will let you know how many times you should do this before your dog’s boarding dates. Each visit is $10.
If your dog has bitten and caused damage to anyone, please start muzzle training for the meet&greets. We recommend a Baskerville muzzle and desensitizing your dog to wear the muzzle. We will send you information on how to do this properly.
Once your dog is comfortable with our staff, you will pay the regular boarding price of $42.50/night.

Cautious Dogs are dogs that can not play with other dogs and therefore need more quality time with a human friend for TLC and play. Requires a 15 minute scheduled Meet&Greet ($10). It could also be that they are shy with new humans. In that case we would probably ask you to do more Meet&Greets. A trainer will advise you how many meetings are needed. Those are required to keep everybody safe and stress levels for your dog low. If you do not want to, or are not able to do the required Meet&Greets, we may ask you to pay the People Cautious Dog Price. Often cautious dogs can be bumped down to "regular" boarding after they have come here several times and get a chance to be introduced to calm canine friends by our expert handlers. Please refer to our Boarding Protocol for these cases.
People Cautious Dogs are those dogs that do not like other humans than their owners. These are dogs that can not easily handled by our staff and/or possibly have a bite record. We are definitely still able to board them, but we have protocols in place to keep everybody safe. A 30 minute assessment ($20) is required. After the initial meeting, we will let you know how many more meet &greets we need. Often, we get to the point with people cautious dogs that the humans working here become trusted friends, and we can at least take them in and out for potty, and open their kennels for feeding and cleaning without them trying to attack us. If that is the case, we can bump you down to the cautious dog price. If you can not make the required Meet&Greets, or if we feel that we can not safely handle your dog, we can still board them. We will have kennels available that have movable doors between them, so that we can move them from kennel to kennel, without having to actually touch them. Basically they would occupy two kennels, hence the high price. Please refer to our Boarding Protocol for these cases.
House of Dog Training
Please Note! We pride ourselves on the specialized boarding services we provide. We are able to board dogs that would not do well in regular facilities, due to aggression, anxieties or other special needs. Often times those dogs come with medications - which we are happy to administer. PACFA (Department of Agriculture), which we are licensed through, requires that when you bring in medications, we need the original prescription bottles from your veterinarian. If you want to bring us pill sorters, that is fine, but we also need the bottles! Furthermore, if those medications are sedatives or calming medications (Fluoxetine, Trazadone, Claumicalm, to name just a few), we also need the written prescription from the prescribing veterinarian, as well as your written permission. We are also happy to administer supplements. If those supplements are non-petspecific (benadryl, salmon oil), we will also have to ask for your written permission. Please make sure you have those documents with you when you come for boarding and don't be surprised if we ask you to sign a medication form. We take the mental as well as physical health of our clients very seriously and have procedures in place for medications that assure we give the right dosage at the right time, to the right dogs! We will also be contacting your veterinarians, to make them aware of those regulations. Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
