Leaving your furry pal at a boarding facility can in fact feel like sending your kid to a summer camp. You want them to come back happy, and not have a minute to cry after their parents during the fun stay. Camp Diego has a long history of taking care of dogs and providing them with home-like conditions and attention. With an excellent reputation in dog daycare since 1997, you can be sure your dog will want to go camping with them more often!
For $40 per 24h, Camp Diego offer a selection of different activities and amenities to keep your dog occupied and relaxed: wading pools, play and socialising areas (both indoor and outdoor), puppy support and more. If you’re only in need of a short-term care, Camp Diego offer daycare as well.
If you want to treat your beloved pet to a five-star holiday, Wag Hotels really are that luxury resort where furry dreams come true. The choice of suites and private rooms gives more shy dogs an opportunity to relax while still being supervised, fed and taken care of by staff! With rest being the no.1 priority at Wag Hotels, your dog can be comfortable in a stress-free facility, while enjoying the occasional interaction (playtime or walkies) with other four-legged friends. The packages go from great to incredible depending on the budget – Ultra Suites offer out-of-this-world extras, such as a nice bubble bath, hypoallergenic plush bedding and a snack and story time in the evening!
It’s $50 to book a standard private room for your pooch. There are also plenty of other options and packages, which you can find out about here.
Prior requirements: If you’re a first time guest at Wag, you are eligible for a free trial, where you can discuss boarding options and requirements with staff. Book it here or alternatively, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With dogs on the brain since 1950, Fon John boasts a trusting clientele and many years of working with pets and their owners to create a safe and fun animal care environment. All of the staff members respect the original owner’s wish to make Fon John a cosy facility, where every guest receives as much love and attention as they do at home. Dog boarding is organised brilliantly to accommodate different needs, as it offers private and public areas, both inside and outside. Really social dogs can interact more, whereas less active pets are allowed to relax and enjoy some me-time. Standard ‘camping’ at Fon John is only $42, or $52 if you’d like your dog to participate in a group play. Apart from boarding, the services offered also include daycare, training and grooming.
Prior requirements: All standard vaccinations are required. Dogs that wish to socialise need to be neutered or spayed. When booking your little camper in, remember that all food and toys are provided – just bring your furry friend, everyone’s excited to meet them!
In opposition to private suits, 24 Hour Dog Daycare prefers social boarding in a large open area. If your dog struggles with separation anxiety and feels more at ease being surrounded by other dogs, this should be the perfect facility for you! Of course, for less social or senior dogs, comfortable private conditions will be provided. With no hidden fees, convenient space and friendly staff that always concentrate on safety first, you and your pooch should be happy there. As the name also indicates, the doors are always open. For owners working unusual hours or booking that last minute holiday, a 24/7 dog boarding will be a godsend.
Social boarding costs $64 per night, while private is a bit more pricey ($74). If you travel a lot, you may want to consider one of the packages.
Prior requirements: All dogs over 6 months of age need to be spayed or neutered. The three standard vaccinations (Bordetella, DHPP and Rabies) are of course required. Find out more about how things are done at 24 Dog Daycare here.
Every dog at Dog Days is simply a new member of the family – with this concept, the facility has been running since 2010, providing dogs with cage-free boarding and plenty of time to get active and make friends. All of the staff members are truly passionate about dogs, their personalities, as well as behaviour and health. No matter if your pooch is hyperactive and ready to mingle, or not active at all and a little bit distanced – the right carer will know how to treat them.
Overnight boarding costs $61 per night. However, if you’re also in need of frequent daycare, the monthly unlimited daycare package gives you the right to $44/night boarding and a free bath!
Prior requirements: Dog Days require you to book in for a free first day in order to monitor the dog’s temperament and see how they interact. Flea prevention and standard vaccinations are a must. Familiarise yourself with boarding House Rules here, and for other requirements click here.
At Camp Run-A-Mutt, you can expect your dog to have plenty of freedom, while still keeping a good schedule. The whole experience is always 100% cage-free, with a combination of open and private areas for fun playtime and uninterrupted meals. What’s ensured in the price you’re paying is lots of love, splash pond time, belly rubs, naps and so much more, for absolutely no additional charges! All staff members are trained in dog handling and will make sure that your pooch has a whale of a time and doesn’t miss home at all.
A full day and night stay at Run-A-Mutt costs $70, with everything included and no extra fees.
Prior requirements: All dogs need to be signed up for a personality test and a cage-free evaluation (dogs don’t always agree with it). On top of that, a registration and vaccination proof are required.
