We will accommodate your pet with a clean, safe, and secure canine boarding complete with a soft and clean blanket. Our veterinarian will be always on call for boarding dogs.

Three times a day for 15 minutes, your dog will be walked in a fenced yard by our trained staff members.

Any guest staying with us for boarding will receive a complementary bath with the accommodation of five (5) nights or more.

Your pet will have two tasty meals daily unless requested by the owner. Please feel free to bring your pet’s diet, if desired (a small to medium-sized unopened bag of food is required as we are limited on storage).

Good Shepherd Pet Hospital uses a bland diet for the boarding feeding program to avoid any food allergy that might arise.

For those with special diet requirements, we prefer that individual meals be prepared and provided at the time of admission.

We offer convenient drop-off/pick-up times at 8:00 am until 5:30 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Wednesdays 9:00 am until 4:30pm. Our check-in is after 3:00 pm. Check-out is before 12:00 am. Early check-in or late checkout is available upon request.

Our exceptional staff is well-trained to meet your pet’s individual needs. They will closely monitor your pet for any health concern and abnormal behavior. Our boarding facility can also maintain a medication schedule that your pet needs (medication must be in original packing).

If your pet falls ill and requires special care, Good Shepherd’s boarding facility has a veterinarian available for boarding dogs and/or cats during our regular business hours. All of our services are available for our guests during their boarding upon request.

Boarding Vaccination Requirements
