Dawg Paradise Rates
BOARDING PLAYCARE RATES
Our prices are all inclusive. There are no "hidden costs". Each pet will receive his/her own private suite. The price is the same for all pets....big or small. (Multiple pets from the same household may stay together in the same suite at a discounted rate - see below. And Yes we do board cats too). Our standard room rate includes all the amenities of home. You tell us your pet(s) schedule and we will do our best to follow it. In addition to the necessities (bathroom breaks, feeding, etc.) we offer all pets individualized attention, including all the play time they can handle as well as a ton of love and affection. Your pet will be treated like "one of the family".
$5+ consecutive night stay will receive 10% discount (not applicable with multi-dog discount). Multi-Dog Discount (in same suite) 20% off standard rates (i.e. 3 dogs x $39 / each = $117 less 20% = $93.60 / night)
2nd Pet (in same suite)
We Operate Similar to a Hotel
Check in is anytime during regular business hours on the day of arrival. Check out is at 12pm noon on the day of departure so that we may have time to prepare for incoming guests. Late Check outs need to be pre arranged and may result in additional fees. In the event that your pet has not checked out and we need the room for another guest, we may remove your dog from his/her room and relocate them in a play area, etc. while they wait to be picked up. You will need to make arrangements in advance if you will be having someone other than yourself picking up your pet. We will not release a pet to anyone else unless we have the proper authorization forms filled out.
Keep in mind, you are always charged for Sundays
It is the same price whether you check out late on Sunday or Monday by noon. Some see this as a 2-day weekend minimum stay.
We require a credit card to hold your reservation
but you may pay in the form of credit, debit, or cash on the day of departure. No checks please.
Please note that if you make any changes to the confirmed drop off / pick up date reservation outside of the one week time frame you will be responsible for $25 / day of the original reservation.
One week in advance for all peak weeks – see calendar for peak weeks.
48 hours for all other times
We take caring for your pet very seriously and are reserving one of our luxury suites just for them. We routinely have other pets on a waiting list so we ask that you please respect our cancellation policy. Failure to follow cancellation guidelines can result in your credit card being charged for up to the full amount of your scheduled reservation.
Don't need an overnight stay?
Or maybe you just want to treat your pet to some fun and socialization....We offer play care for those pets who just need a get-a-way for the day.
Drop off and pick up times are during normal business hours.
Early or late pick ups must be arranged in advance, and additional fees may apply.
$25.00 / day or purchase 5 days for $100.
Play Care Rate
Restrictions apply. (Price change effective February 1st. Current cards will be honored but will renew at the new rate.)
Please note that while we make every effort to afford your pet all the playtime he/she can handle
We are limited in the amount of time given each guest based on the current population, weather conditions, and the number of individual plays. Our first priority is to keep your pet and our staff safe at all times. You may inquire about these factors at the time you make your reservation.

Scheduling an Appointment
We will try to accomodate your schedule, however...
We prefer to have your pet dropped off at their scheduled appointment time and picked up within an hour of their completion time. Upon arrival we will examine your pet and determine an estimated pick up time. We ask that you provide a number where you can be reached so that we may contact you if the appointment exceeds the estimated pick up time.
Dawg Paradise is proud to announce the addition of our 14' x 20' in ground heated pool along with 8 additional pool side suites.
Our new pool is 4' deep with stairs and a ramp for easy access. Our boarding guests are welcome to use the pool for recreational swimming during their stay, however a life jacket is required. You are welcome to bring your dog's own life vest or you may rent one from us (please see "Check In Forms" tab for further details and required paperwork).
If you would like your dog to swim
we ask that he/she be free from excessive dirt and shedding. Give your dog a thorough brushing prior to his/her stay and avoid applying any topical flea treatment within 72 hours of their stay.
Recreational swimming is designed for the healthy, experienced swimmer who likes the water and is comfortable swimming on his/her own.
As always we will provide supervision for this activity, however, our staff will not get in the pool with your dog. If your dog has never swam, is afraid of the water, or has health issues/injuries we suggest that you check into our "assisted" and "therapeutic" sessions. These sessions are conducted by trained professionals who get in the water with your dog. More information on these sessions is available under the "Swimming Rehab and Exercise" tab located on the main menu.
We offer "Assisted" and "Therapeutic" swim sessions.
Please contact us for details, pricing, and to schedule a session.

TRANSPORT RATES and SERVICE AREAS

We will transport up to 2 pets at this rate.
Our mileage rates are based on an area within a 25 mile radius of Dawg Paradise.
