The rate works just like a hotel with a check-out time 10:00 am. You are charged for the day you drop your dog off regardless of the time. You are not charged for the day you pick up if you are here before 10am. Dogs picked up anytime after 10am will be charged for that day. For example, if you drop your dog off at 4:30pm on Friday and pick up on Sunday at 4:30, you would be charged for 3 days- Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It would also be a 3 day charge if you picked your dog up on Monday morning before 10 am. The reason you pay for an extra day if your dog is here past 10 am is that we cannot put another dog in that run until you dog has left, the run has been disinfected and had time to dry.
Payment due upon pick up. We accept cash, check and credit cards. THREE DAY charge minimum for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring break.
NEW One-on-One Activities with Staff Member
For the dogs that crave more human interaction, we are pleased to offer these add on services:
Private Leash Walk
Price: $5 for 15 minutes **As always, there is no charge for the standard yard playtime, alone or with other dogs.
What to Bring
Proof of vaccination from the veterinarian showing current rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations. This is very important; we cannot take your dog without proof of vaccination. We do not have a fax machine, so please bring a hard copy in with you. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Food for your dog. Keeping your dog on the same food they eat at home helps prevent digestive upset. We do have a refrigerator to store opened canned food or specially prepared meals. If you would like us to provide food for your dog, it is an extra dollar per day for each dog.
Any toys, bones, or treats you'd like your dog to have.
We provide bedding and bowls
Hours for Drop Off or Pick Up
We are open from 8am to 12 noon and 3pm to 6pm seven days a week, including holidays. You can drop off or pick up your dog anytime during these hours. For your convenience, we are open 7 hours a day, 365 days a year! Please note that there is not staff here to check dogs in or out between the hours of noon and 3pm. This is nap time for the dogs, as well as our time to get lunch, run errands, do outdoor chores, and go to the laundry mat to wash dog bedding. We do not offer early drop offs or late pick ups, so if you need to leave before 8 am, please drop your dog off the day before. If you are not going to make it back in time to pick up your dog by 6 pm, your dog can spend the night and you can pick up before 10 am the following morning for no additional charge.
Reservations required Call ahead of time to make boarding or grooming reservations. Please, no walk ins.
Kindly let us know at least 48 hours prior to scheduled drop off date if you will no longer need our services, or are changing the drop off/pick up date.
Here are the fees associated with last minute (less than 48 hours) notice cancellations or reservation changes (delayed drop off or early pick up) 1 dog booked for 1-3 days: $17 1 dog booked for more than 3 days: $25 2 dogs booked for 1-3 days: $30 2 dogs booked for more than 3 days: $50
We have limited space are frequently a full capacity, which means we have to turn away families that would like to board their dogs here. When customers pick up their dogs early, cancel reservations, or change reservations without giving us enough notice (48 hours), we are often unable to fill the space we reserved for them. While we do keep a waiting list, most people will have made other arrangements for their pet by that time, so we end up having an open run. This is lost income for us, as well as an inconvenience to the families that are turned away. Please be considerate and let others use the time that you don't.
**Holiday Cancellation Policy** We require one full week's notice for cancellations or changes to scheduled reservations over Thanksgiving, Christmas or Spring Break. The fee for less than 7 days notice cancellation is $50 for one dog or $85 for two dogs. We reserve the right to charge for the entire stay booked if reservations are changed (drop off date is pushed back, dog is picked up early) and we are unable to fill the spot. Normally our schedule is quite flexible, but as the holidays are our busiest times of the year, we must ask clients to pay for the time that they reserve.
Bedding & Other Belongings We have bedding here that we can provide for your dog at no charge. We encourage you to let us provide the bedding as this makes our job much easier. However, if your dog absolutely must have his or her favorite bed, you can bring it along. The bedding needs to be reasonably sized so that it can fit into the run, which can sometimes be an issue since the run doors open in. The Dog On Inn is not responsible for any chewed or soiled bedding. We make every effort to send bedding home clean, but since we do not wash laundry on site, its often difficult to get blankets washed before sending dogs home. Also, many dogs that don't chew bedding at home enjoy ripping the stuffing out of their favorite bed while they're here. All of this applies to toys as well. Additionally, the Dog On Inn is not responsible for any belongings lost or left behind. Please label your dog's items.
Long Term Boarding We offer a 10% discount for dogs boarded for three weeks or more. This discount applies to boarding only and does not extend to grooming or retail. To receive this 10% discount, you must pre-pay 50% of the total boarding bill at time of drop off. Dogs that are booked for more than three weeks and are picked up early will be charged the lesser of the entire discounted booked reservation or the regular daily rate for the period the dog was boarded.
We also offer daycare seven days a week, reservation required. Dogs can be dropped off between 8 am and 12 noon, with pick up from 3 to 6pm. Daycare for one dog is $12 per day or a 10 visit package is available for $100. Please keep in mind that we do not have an indoor play area for the dogs, so playtime may be limited during inclement weather. Daycare is typically not available around the holidays since the kennel will be full with dogs here for boarding, so please call for availability.
