Our Services


Personalized care with lots of fun activities and a pet-loving staff: that’s why dogs wag their tails at our name.

Whether visiting for an overnight stay or just for the day, our guests enjoy a range of options: group play sessions or one-on-one activities like walks and cuddle times; spacious climate-controlled, two-room suites with lambswool bedding, or luxury villas with raised beds and personal TVs. Cats have a quiet wing, away from the dogs, with multi-level condos and their own special amenities.

Most importantly, our pet-loving associates know every guest by name, and treat them like family.
