Dog Boarding

Dog Boarding with The Grateful Dog

Looking for a safe, fun place to care for your dog while you're away? You've come to the right place! We take pride in positive-reinforcement training, supervised play indoor and outdoor, and a cageless, kennel-free environment. Last minute drop-offs are welcome and we have no weight restrictions. Come one, come all! To top it off, we're open 7 days a week/365 days a year. We take the “environmentally-friendly business” badge seriously, and are committed to using only biodegradable, non-toxic products. We’ll supply your dog with filtered water and organic treats and will administer medication or cater to special needs at no additional charge. Our services benefit not only your pet, but the animals around the city—we continue to donate a portion of our proceeds to help local animal shelters, foundations, and rescue centers where care is needed most.
