Boarding: Sleep Like A Dog

What does my dog do during the day?

When dogs come for a ‘sleep over’, their day is much the same as our daycare dogs. Boarders are integrated into playgroups and stay with these groups any time they are not eating or resting to digest their meals (normally fed twice a day.) We do have areas where dogs can play if they do not get along well with others, or need solo play.   A dog’s day at Gulliver’s usually goes something like this:

  • Wake up and out to potty
  • Breakfast
  • Rest time
  • Out to play for the day
  • Dinner
  • Rest time
  • Play and out to potty
  • Bed time

Where does my dog sleep?

We offer several options to dogs who are boarding, including different styles and sizes of crates and kennel runs.  We determine where your dog sleeps based on the needs of all our guests and where everyone is most comfortable.  Imagine spending a whole day at a busy party. At the end of the day you likely are glad for the peace and quiet of your own room where you can unwind, relax, and get uninterrupted sleep. The dogs appreciate this too!

What do I need to bring?

We provide fleece dog blankets, Kuranda beds, toys, and dishes for all of our boarders.  This way you don’t have to pack and transport around beds and other supplies. We also find this the most sanitary for the dogs, since we can change out the bedding as needed. We feed Eagle Original Dry food to our boarders. However, if your dog is on a special diet, or just prefers his own food, we are happy to feed anything you bring. We are equipped to refrigerate and heat as needed, raw diets are no problem. We also administer any medication that you would give at home, including injections, free of charge!

How much does boarding cost?

For your convenience, the boarding fee is charged by the number of overnights your dog is with us. We do not charge by day. You may pick up and drop off anytime during our business hours, without effecting your boarding rate. For example, you can drop your dog off Friday morning, your dog can play all Friday, spend Friday night ($38), then play Saturday and spend another night($38). You can pick up your dog anytime during business hours Sunday, your total boarding charge for the stay would be $76.00.

Reservations:

Reservations are appreciated, but not required.  Your dog’s boarding stay can be easily booked from our online platform. If your plans change you can cancel at any time, there is no cancellation fee.

My dog has special needs

We take care of any medication that you administer at home for no additional charge.  We can discuss your dog’s needs on a case by case basis to keep their best interest in mind.

Dirty Dog? No problem!

The best play often involves getting at least a bit dirty! Clean up is FREE at Gulliver’s. Request at clean up and we will have them rinsed and towel dried for the ride home. Alternatively, request a bath for pick up! For just $20, your dog will be shampooed and dry when you get here.

Requirements

We accept dogs four months and older who are up to date on their Rabies, Distemper, Bordatella, and Canine Influenza vaccinations. The canine influenza vaccine (CIV) is not a core vaccine at all veterinary practices.  Therefore, you may need to specifically request it from your vet. All vaccinations must be kept current.  Males over eight months of age must be neutered.
