About Boarding

Happy Dog Day Care & Boarding is an alternative style boarding and day care facility.  

This alternative style of kenneling has proven very successful. The dogs play together in various indoor and outdoor play areas with other dogs that complement each other in terms of size, temperament, energy level and age. As a result, dogs become socialized with other dogs and people. Because the dogs spend their day exercising outside, they eat and sleep better in their airy extra large kennels with heated floors and bedding. Happy Dog has a state of the art security system with night time observation.

Special diets and medications are welcome. Please make sure to bring enough for the entire stay. If your dog requires canned dog food please bring it, since Happy Dog does not provide it. Daycare included in the cost of boarding.

We ask that all new clients fill out a one page contract so we can get to know you and your dog(s) better.
