Overnight Care 

Sweet dreams.

Nothing against you, but when it’s time to checkout, your dog may not be so eager to. After all, our goal is to make your dog feel as much like he’s at home as possible. That means showering him with an endless amount of affection and care from our well-trained staff, who just love dogs, plain and simple.

Dogs must play by the rules.

Dog Days is a social, group environment where the dogs hang out and play together all day. In order to keep things, well, orderly, certain rules apply. All dogs must be:

  • Free of communicable diseases
  • Spayed/neutered (if over 7 months of age)
  • On a flea/tick preventative, such as Frontline from April - November
  • Up-to-date with DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations

A behavior assessment is done for first timers to ensure they'll be able to be part of the play group at Dog Days.  Non-social or older dogs who are not appropriate for the play group will be given several potty breaks and one-on-one play time with our care givers.


"I just wanted to send a thank you for taking care of our dog Daly. This was our first experience boarding him, and he had a blast. We could tell it was like he didn't even know we were gone....and that's how we wanted it! What a great experience. Thanks again!"
