Dog Boarding

The K9 Rec Center offers dog boarding for your favorite four-legged family member. Each overnight pet guest stays in its indoor space furnished with a comfy cot. Your pet has its own doggy door to access its own outdoor yard*.

Dog PRE-Boarding

Is Your Dog A Socialite?

Boarding dogs are eligible for a FREE day or half-day of Daycare in conjunction with each overnight stay. Before boarding with us, your dog must qualify for one of the two daycare options: social (day) or non-social (half-day). Like extroverted and introverted humans, your dog may prefer to interact with other dogs during playtime or prefer smaller group or even solo time with our playtime handlers. If you have never boarded your dog with us, these two options provide a great way to let your dog overcome any anxiety before their boarding stay.

  • Daycare Interview
    (Social Dogs)

    To qualify for social daycare, each social dog must pass a Daycare Interview prior to beginning any boarding or daycare reservation.

    • The interview assesses your dog's social skills.
    • The thorough evaluation is performed by our dog trainers.
    • Our trainer will spend up to 15-minutes with your dog while you answer a few questions about your dog's community behaviors.
    • Dogs are re-evaluated every 6 months to ensure no non-social behaviors have manifested.

  • Happy Visit
    (Non-Social Dogs)

    Our Happy Visit is available to new non-social (no daycare) dogs that plan to board with us.

    • It is an opportunity for your pet to get a feel for the K9 Rec Center before you go on vacation
    • A complementary half day (5 hours or less) is included.
    • The Happy Visit will include some time in our in-and-out runs, a walk with our handlers, and lots of hugs and kisses.

Frequently Asked Dog Boarding Questions

Please reach us at the contact information at the bottom of this page if you cannot find an answer to your question.

All pets must be up-to-date on their Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines. We also recommend, but do not require, Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza vaccines. Proof of vaccine administration date or expiration date on veterinary receipt required.

In order for your dog to be fully protected by a vaccine, your dog should be vaccinated a minimum of two weeks prior to arriving at K9 Rec Center.

We recommend all pets visit us before they stay so they are comfortable with the new boarding environment. We offer a Happy Visit for nonsocial dogs to stay for half a day. They will receive a walk with our handlers, lots of pets and love, and a chance to try out our in-and-out runs. The half day is completely free!

We interview all dogs that come into the K9 Rec Center. The boarding interview tests your pet’s temperament with human handlers. This tells our handlers how hands on they can be with your pet. Please be sure to arrive about an hour before your pet’s boarding visit to complete necessary paperwork and the interview. This interview is completed for all daycare dog’s during the daycare interview.
You should bring their food, any necessary medication or supplements in their original bottle with the quantity visible, treats if desired, a couple toys, a bed or blanket if you would like, and a t-shirt that smells like you. Please keep in mind that pets can become bored or stressed when alone in the run and may destroy any of the provided objects.
Per the AKC, Kennel Cough (also known as canine infectious tracheobronchitis) is a highly contagious respiratory disease. Dogs commonly contract kennel cough at places where large amounts of canines congregate, such as boarding and daycare facilities, dog parks, training groups, and dog shows. Dogs can spread it to one another through airborne droplets, direct contact (e.g., touching noses), or contaminated surfaces (including water/food bowls). It’s highly treatable in most dogs but can be more severe in puppies younger than six months of age and immunocompromised dogs (

For the safety of other pets, please do not bring your dog to daycare or boarding if they are showing symptoms of Canine Cough or have any other transmittable illness.
The K9 Rec Center has kibble available in case of emergencies. We always recommend you bring extra kibble in case you cannot make it back by their scheduled pick up date. A good way to make sure your pet has enough food for their stay (plus some extra) is to bag each meal in a separate bag or container. If you pre-bag, please do not put any medications or supplements in the bag. These must come in their original containers.

*Subject to availability. Non-social dogs are given priority assignment to dog runs with private dog door access to their own outdoor yard.
