When boarding with The Animal House, doggies enjoy full days of fun in our Doggie Playcare from 7am to 7pm. At night, doggies rest comfortably in private sleeping quarters, or “bedrooms”. We are not a typical kennel. We don’t confine the dogs to “runs” or isolate them in cages for days at a time. Our boarding dogs are only in their bedrooms to eat and to sleep at night. The rest of their time with us is spent with our day care dogs in one or more of our eight playgroups. See Doggie Day Care. Advanced reservations are required for overnight boarding.
When you leave your pet for an overnight stay at The Animal House, your dog spends his or her waking hours frolicking in our Doggie Daycare playgroups, along with our daycare guests. It’s the same climate-controlled, safe, supervised doggie activity that makes our furry customers consider this their home away from home.
You can arrange to have your pet fed on a familiar feeding schedule, as well as with the food they like best. A pre-bagging discount is available if you prepare the meals in advance. Or, if you’re pressed for time, we’ll provide our nutritious “house” variety of dog food for a nominal fee.
When it’s time to turn in for the night your dog will be escorted to his own sleeping area, where he’ll rest undisturbed under our staff’s watchful eyes until it’s time to start the new day. Our facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We care for your pet as if it were our own.
Reservations for boarding are required at least 24 hours in advance. Please give at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. You may book your reservation on-line or by calling 706-737-5960. Please make sure you receive a confirmation email when reserving online.
