Overnight Boarding

Our overnight area is designed to provide comfort and a sense of security. The private suites are outfitted with a Kuranda bed, food/water bowls, and any personal effects from home. 
One on one, and dog group playtime is included in our overnight rates. 
We do not require an evaluation to board, however, all dogs must be evaluated and approved for play groups. Ask for your evaluation at drop off.
*Please note that evaluations are not available during weekend hours. To ensure your pup is evaluated, you may schedule ahead of time.

Mon - Fri: 7:00a.m - 6:00 p.m
Sat - Sun Drop off/pick up: 8:00am - 10:00 a.m or 6pm - 8:00 p.m

The only all inclusive boarding facility in Eau Claire!

What to Bring
