A Holistic Doggie Daycare, Dog Boarding, Grooming, Training and Retail Spot near Old Town Alexandria
When you're away from home, it's important to know that your fur baby is being cared for in a happy environment that caters to his or her every need, just like you do!
No metal cages or cold floors here. Our dog boarding suites are designed to help your pup feel at home. Individually designed and painted in bright colors, our suites have plenty of room for your dog's own bed or one of ours, Each suite and bed are vacuumed and disinfected daily to ensure a clean and comfortable stay.
All pups are given a bathroom break before lights out and again in the morning before breakfast. For mealtimes, you can bring your dog's own food, or we can serve your pet our all natural diet.
Puppies are comforted when they go to sleep with a little night music and pheromones to help them relax. If they are restless, we offer them a puzzle toy with a snack before lights out to help them adjust.
For those who feel their pup will do better sleeping with a person, we can arrange that they stay with the overnight manager. We can only offer this special service to a limited number of guests, however, so please ask when you make your reservation.
Dogs need time to adjust to their new surroundings when they are boarded, and our staff needs time to get to know your pup. It's important for your pup to spend time with us prior to boarding so that they know its a safe spot where they can have fun, and they understand that you will be back to pick them up. We ask that any new client spend at least six hours in daycare before the first day of boarding. We suggest for your pup's benefit that you schedule at least several visits and offer three hour increments to help your pup adjust to daycare.
If you have a dog that does not want to attend daycare, either because they are not neutered or spayed, or they are older, or would rather not hang with other dogs, we get it. We do have a limited number of spaces for dogs that can't do daycare. These dogs do need an evaluation, and all of the same vaccines and boarding intake forms. We want to be certain that they are not aggressive toward people, or are in ill health. Give us a call and we can talk through the arrangements. Non-daycare dogs do get three walks a day, and you can also arrange some time in our fun/agility room to break up the monotony of a longer stay.
All dogs that intend to participate in daycare during boarding must pass our daycare evaluation and spend at least six hours in daycare prior to boarding.
If you're pup is not interested in daycare, we can accommodate a limited number of non-daycare dogs. We do need to see them to ensure they are healthy and not aggressive towards people. Non daycare dogs will receive 3 walks a day and can also participate in our agility/fun room during their stay as well -- just let us know when arranging the boarding.
On the day of boarding, all dogs MUST be checked in by 12pm. This allows your pup time to play and be tired, and adjust by the time bedtime comes around.
If your dog absolutely cannot stay in the room (barking all night, clawing at the walls or doors) they will be moved to the overnight Manager's room and will incur the extra fee of $10.00 per night.
There is no extra charge to drop off when we open. We can accept pups before 7am for a small fee. There is a late pick-up charge for dogs hanging out after 7pm.
Dogs staying beyond noon, Mon - Saturday will incur a half/day daycare charge. There is no half day charge on Sunday's as we open at noon.
