About Boarding

We are now open for boarding! Thank you for your patience and understanding during these trying times. We appreciate all of you, and hope everyone is staying safe and well!

Happy Dog Day Care & Boarding is an alternative style boarding and day care facility. Owners Cathy and Diane wanted to create a place where they would feel comfortable leaving their own dogs. From their dreams came Happy Dog. The new owner Jackie also shares this vision. 

This alternative style of kenneling has proven very successful. The dogs play together in various 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. Happy Dog has a state of the art security system with night time observation.

We will provide bedding for your dog's use while boarding with us, and currently aren't accepting bedding and blankets from home due to covid. 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.

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