Your dog’s trial day is their chance to go through a full day’s routine, meet new friends and meet us, all before they spend the night.


That way, when they return for their overnight, they are familiar with us and they are confident you are coming back for them!

Who cannot stay?

  • Dogs with anxiety, excessive barking habits, or are ill-mannered

  • Females in heat

  • Dogs who cannot be separated without disrupting other guests (non-stop barking or destructive habits)

What do I need to bring for Trial Day?


  • ​FOOD

If your pup has a special diet, eats at an alternative time, or requires lunch, please bring their food.

What type of environment do you provide?

  • We provide a home away-from-home

  • Your pet will enjoy a home setting with no loud or excessive barking from other dogs causing stress 

  • We are here for your pet 24/7 and look after them as if they were our own

  • Potty breaks are provided every two hours (more if needed) in our spacious backyard

  • We have several outdoor games and a small dog pool to cool off in in the hot summer months

  • We provide indoor canine enrichment as well, and dog treats at no extra charge 

Will my dog have other dogs to play with?

  • Sometimes. Since boarding is done in our home, we will never have more than six dogs at a time. Sometimes your dog may be the only one here!

  • Not all dogs have the same play style, or get along with other dogs. When that is the case, dogs will be kept separate

  • Since we are a kennel-free environment, dogs being kept separate will be in either the front or back half of our home

  • Senior dogs will be allowed play time with quiet natured dogs, but can be kept comfy on their own as to not be bothered/injured by other pups
