We are a socialized dog resort providing a safe and fun environment for your dog. The evaluation day is a full resort introduction.
We want to make sure that your dog is comfortable in their suites, with our staff, and with other dogs. We consider it the first day of “school" and getting to know where everything is and who are these new friends.
We spend one-on-one time with your dog and slowly introduce other dog friends. It’s important that your dog gets acclimated to the sights, smells, sounds, and routine of Stay Pet before joining the other guests in open playtime.
New guest evaluations must be scheduled in advance due to the individual attention given to each dog. Stay Pet has sole discretion to separate your dog from other guests at any time.
Stay Pet offers a different kind of daycare/boarding experience with constant stimulation. Because we are both an indoor and outdoor facility, your dog is with other dogs and humans playing throughout the day.
Dogs get private rest throughout the day in a suite. We provide fresh water in each suite as well as throughout the facility in each play areas.
Sometimes, like people and children who get busy or play at school, they forget to drink.

Once they are over six months of age, they must be spayed or neutered in order to socialize with the other guests in daycare. Puppies 10 weeks and older must have a negative fecal exam before coming to Stay.
As many dogs are sensitive to sudden dietary changes, we find that it's best for owners to provide dogs' regular food for the entire length of their stay.
We require that all meals be prebagged for each meal (Ziploc bags work well). This provides the exact portion you want for each meal. There is an additional charge of $1.50 per day (per dog) for separating meals.
We do not accept large dog food bags, Tupperware containers, or food bins.

Due to the potential health issues associated with raw chicken and meat, we do not allow it into the facility.

Yes. However, there is no group play activities or daycare for dogs over six months of age. They will still receive lots of love and private play throughout their stay. On the rare occasion that a dog goes into heat while boarding, an additional $50 per day fee applies plus she will be moved to a private isolation room ($105 a night). A female in heat can stress our male guests staying at the resort and requires extra sanitation protocols. If your dog is currently in heat prior to boarding, we, unfortunately, cannot knowingly have her board with us.
