Happy Tails Premier Boarding is Overnight Free-Range Pawjama Party

Planning a vacation soon?

Your dog will have his own vacation too while boarding at Happy Tails!

We designed our facility to emulate a home environment so that your pet would feel like he was just going to a friend’s house for the day or the week.

No cages during the day or at night, just play areas where he or she can romp with friends. During the day all boarding dogs play with their regular daycare friends. In the evening, our night staff member brings out bedding and everyone sleeps slumber-party style with our night staff.

What makes us different is our home-like environment where our overnight staff sleeps, snuggles and stays with the dogs the entire night. Our guests are never left unattended and are free to cozy up on a couch, bed, or cot to watch Dog TV.


Our philosophy of cage-free boarding means stress-free boarding. We don’t believe in throwing our companions in cages and walking out on them, telling customers that a cage is a luxury cabin. Dogs become stressed when caged, especially if their owners don’t regularly cage them at home.

onfinement to a cage can make your pet feel nervous and unsure of what is going on, especially when away from home. We believe in giving your dog a fun filled experience, where dogs are kept in a roam-free, cage-free environment and socialize with other dogs. We purposely provide an environment for your pet that will make them feel at home without feeling anxious or alone and will foster their instinct to socialize and investigate their surroundings.

Boarding with Happy Tails is like a sleepover for your dog with all of their best friends. Our pups play all day and then snore the night away. With us, your dog is on vacation and will be enjoying themselves as much as you are on your vacation (and maybe even more!)

No other boarding facility has the experience of this home away from home feel. Happy Tails boarding service is an extension of our off-leash daycare. After a busy day of activities, a private meal, and an evening romp around the yard, our canine guests roam throughout and settle down together on comfy beds, couches, and with blankets. Most importantly, your dog is supervised at all times, day and night. We also have a private VIP room, at no additional charge, if you or your pup prefers. We are truly crate-free, but we do have crates available if your dog prefers to be crated.
Rest assured your dog will be safe, loved and treated like our own.

All of our overnight dog boarding rates include doggy daycare at no additional cost to you. We do require a half day of daycare prior, so we can temperament test your pup. Be sure to bring your dog(s) vaccination records with you. Once your dog has passed the temperament test and we have your vaccination records, your dog will be ready for daycare and boarding! While you’re away you will be able to watch your dog having fun live on our 24/7 dog webcams, and when you return, you’ll receive a report card on your fur babies stay.

Social sleeping arrangement after a full day of off-leash daycare play and dinner time, your dog joins his pack in our comfortable group boarding den under the supervision of our overnight staff who are always present.
