Vacation Activities

The Enrichment Program
Our Enrichment Program is designed around your dog's activity level! This fun-filled 15 minute session is designed to encourage your pet's play drive. We tailor this playtime with one of our professionally trained staff members to bring out the exuberance in your dog. Tell us what sparks your dog's interest. We have games, tunnels, climbing frames, balls, Frisbee, sticks and a splash pool. After our play sessions we offer dogs kitchen time with us and even let them beg for their favorite treats! We let them pretend they are at Grandma's house!
Bonus: If you purchase at least 3 Enrichments, you will receive a picture and report card of your dog during his Enrichment time!
{$15 Per 15 Minute Enrichment Session}

Extra Yard Time
The room rate already includes one hour of yard time every day for your pet. But, what if you have a dog that loves spending a lot of time outside, running around or just lounging about in the sunshine? Then this would be a perfect extra for them! Extra Yard Time buys your pet an additional hour outside, giving them 2 hours of yard time a day, as well as playing with friends in their Daycare group.
{1 Extra Hour Per Day=$10 }

Extra Petting Sessions
There is no doubt that your pet is loved while staying at the Pet Resort, but maybe you want your loved one to receive extra hugs, pets and kisses during vacation. Our Extra Petting Sessions gives your pet and one of our staff member's 10 minutes of one-on-one snuggle and scratch time.
{10 Extra Minutes Per Day=$10 }

Email Blast
Want to see what is going on with your pet while you are away? Our Email Blast includes a personalized email to you along with 2 pictures of your pet during his vacation stay with us.
{1 Email with 2 pics=$20 }

We are here to help you pack!

Your Dog's Luggage

It's important to make your pet as comfortable as they can be while away from home. We find these items help out a great deal with that transition.
Be sure to pack enough food for the total length of stay.  Please pack food in a sealed, plastic container (if available) with your dog's name on it.  Add directions if needed.  Be sure to include treats for night time snack!
A maximum of 2 toys are allowed.  Please do not pack anything sentimental because it may not make it back home.
A small throw carpet, blanket, and/or washable dog bed all work.  No stuffed beds or pet furniture.  All items must be machine washable.
Please clearly label all medications.  We administer everything from pills to shots!
Please include a descriptive list of all items you have packed for your dog (colors of blankets, names of medications, etc.) so you will get all of your dog's items back at the end of the stay.
Any updated vaccination/shot records we will need to record in our system.
Bring in a list of any personal changes, such as your home address, email, emergency contacts, etc. so we can update them in our system.

Our kitchen at the Pet Resort is fully stocked with a refrigerator, freezer and microwave, so we can meet almost any meal needs. Due to limited kitchen space, if you can, please do not bring large plastic containers or full, big bags of food. We suggest you put your name on every item you possibly can to help us out when packing up to go home. We provide all dishes for food and water, as well, so please leave those at home.

Just in case you needed to know


If your pet's home medication administration times are different from the Pet Resort's daily operating hours, please give yourself and your pet a minimum of 2 weeks to adjust to a new medication schedule at home before the vacation stay at the Pet Resort. We suggest easing into the transition, moving the times slightly every day. For example, if you normally give your pet his medication at 10:00 pm, please gradually move his medication time towards 8:00 pm for the Pet Resort stay.
This will make for an easier transition for your pet.

Bring your pet out for a tour to feel the Pet Resort out. We understand leaving your pet anywhere that is not home is stressful-- both to you and the dog! It helps to bring your dog out to our facility and get used to the grounds before the vacation stay. We also recommend boarding your dog with us for a short stay to ease into the Pet Resort atmosphere. A lot of customers find this to be extremely helpful.

Our staff is fully trained in administering medications to pets. From pills to injections, we are skilled and fully understand the importance of medications given to your pet.

There will be no charge for the departure day for dogs/cats
checking out between 9-11:00 am.

After 6 months of age, dogs MUST be spayed/neutered to stay at the Pet Resort.
