For the times when the family cannot be there, we offer overnight care. We place baby crib mattresses out with clean sheets and blankets for the dogs to sleep on. Some choose to sleep with a friend - some want the mattress all to themselves.
Due to the nature of our socialized boarding, we are a members only boarding facility and only board our active daycare camp members.
We are fully staffed, day and night, which guarantees 24 hour TLC! We have a night staff member in every room that we have dogs sleeping. No dog is ever left alone!
In the morning, the dogs go outside for a potty break, come back in for breakfast, then join their friends for a day of fun & play at Day Camp.
WE DO NOT BELIEVE CAGING AN ANIMAL DAY OR NIGHT IS APPROPRIATE!
At Happy Paws, we offer more than just another kennel style to choose from! We offer the freedom of sleeping on cots instead of in a cage.
It is easier to care for caged or kenneled dogs, and less expensive. However, we opened our business because we believe you want your pet Happy & Healthy when you return.
We have plenty of cots & blankets.... However, if you prefer to bring a bed, favorite blanket, or towel from home, that is fine with us.
WE DO NOT HAVE "HOUSE" FOOD for feeding. We only feed what the parents bring from home. There is no additional charge for feeding and/or administering medications. (We do not do injections!) We recommend you always include an extra bag of food, especially if you are flying, just in case your return trip is delayed. We feed breakfast, lunch, dinner, and treats as specified on the application.
Our boarding rates are for a full 24 hours. If you drop off by 2 PM, you have until 2 PM on your scheduled departure date to pick up with no additional daycare charges. We ask that all food and supplies for weekend drop offs to be brought to camp by 12 noon on Saturday so that we can process and label everything.
