Boarding

Our small facility is nestled in the foothills of the Sunday River Ski Resort. We are in close proximity to the Bethel Village, Mt. Abram Ski Mountain, Bethel Inn Resort, Newry, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

While your pet is in our care we promise to provide them with all the love and attention  we give our own pets. Your pets safety and comfort are our highest regard. We are primarily a cage free facility. Each guest receives a private pen for daytime napping and overnights. 

We offer private runs, a clean and comfortable indoor atmosphere, as well as large fenced in play yards outside. Our days are structured to include play time with others, or individually if preferred, and periods of quiet rest. We take many trips outdoors throughout the day, most days, weather permitting, we play outside the majority of our time. Our overnight boarding guests also get to join the daycare group during the day at no extra charge.

Our runs come in two sizes, 5x5 or 5x10 (inside space) with a dog door connected to a 5x10 private outdoor run. Multiple dog families are encouraged to stay together as they are most comfortable being with one another. If your dog is more comfortable sleeping in a crate at night you may bring your own or we can provide one for them.

We have comfortable recycled rubber flooring in our pens and indoor playroom. This is not only environmentally friendly, but provides a warm surface for your pet to lie, as well as offering good traction underfoot. The rubber offers anti fatigue qualities and is easy on the muscles and joints.

All dogs receive individualized attention and affection from our wonderful staff. Whether it's a belly rub or rousing game of fetch, we want to make your dog feel at home while you're away.

Play sessions are supervised  to ensure the safety of your pet. Keep in mind that sometimes even non-aggressive dog play can cause injury to dogs. Dogs play and communicate with sharp teeth and nails, abrasions and superficial scrapes are to be expected. Please look over our policy page and request a release form for more information.

Our indoor play room is a good place to warm up on cold winter days, and get out of the sun during the summer. Many dogs are more comfortable playing in smaller groups inside and our play room is perfect for a good game of keep-away, or a wrestling match.

While most dogs prefer to play outside with each other during the day, some would rather just lounge on their beds with a toy in private. Any and all dogs are welcome here, whether they’re young & playful or senior citizens just looking for a warm bed and some belly rubs, we cater to each dogs needs.

Daycare is included the day of your overnight at no additional charge. If your dog is new to our facility we encourage you to drop them off in the morning so they can get acclimated prior to bedtime.

If your dog will be staying for an extended period of time with us we may ask you to bring them for a day of daycare prior to booking boarding reservations to make sure it is a good fit for them and us.

We want your pet to feel comfortable during their stay. We encourage you to bring your dog's bedding from home, as well as their own dog food. Consistency is important for the well being of your pet. We can provide bedding if you like, as well as food for an additional charge.

We are able to accommodate pets with special needs. We welcome pets with disabilities, and medications as well. Please note that pets with extreme medical needs may incur additional charges.

 We appreciate your cooperation in helping us create a calm and relaxed place for your pet. Please bring your pet in on a leash and keep drop off's and pick up's as short and sweet as possible to limit stress on our guests.

Having people come in and out of our facility, and new dogs joining and leaving play groups, is very disruptive to our guests, so we like to keep these times to a minimum to ensure maximum comfort for our dogs. It also means less time spent caring and supervising your pet when we are in our office with human clients. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

  • Boarding

Boarding dogs must be:
Non-aggressive
Show proof of current immunizations (rabies, distemper, canine cough)
It is recommended that your dog be on a flea and tick preventative
It is recommended that your dog be spayed/neutered
Females currently in season are not welcome at our facility. Should your female come into season during her stay boarding rates will be doubled.

If your dog suffers from separation anxiety we suggest the services of an in-home care taker. It is important for all our dogs to be comfortable while staying with us. If your dog is anxious it will become a stressful environment for all the other dogs too. We also would not want your dog to injure themselves in an attempt to escape.

While your pet is in our care we do not recommend visits with your pet. Your pet settles in with us, learns the routines, gets accustomed to the environment and other dogs while staying with us. When owners and pets reunite pets will be very excited. Your pet knows he will be going home. They will greet you the same at the end of daycare as they do at the end of a week stay. Dogs have a different concept of time than humans. When visits happen, dogs become very confused, "Why are you here if we're not leaving? " "Why are you leaving and not taking me with you?" Your pet will have a difficult time settling back in and will become stressed and anxious. One pet's stress becomes all the dog's stress in a shared environment such as ours.

It is in your pets best interest to keep the check in and out events as quick and relaxed as possible. If you wish to check in on your pet during their stay please give us a call, send us a text, or email. We're happy to keep you updated.

Thank you for respecting our policies.
