The boarding facility offers spacious climate controlled living for your loved one. We have (10) 8×4 kennels for small and medium breed dogs and (2) 8×6 kennels for large breed dogs. The larger kennels can also house multiple pets for owners that want to leave their pets together, giving them the peace of mind that your loved one is comfortable while away. Each kennel is supplied with Kuranda beds for the comfort of your pet.  Soft, relaxing music will be played 24/7 in the kennel area to reduce stress on your pet during their stay. We also offer a Luxury Penthouse for pets you want pampered. This room offers a home-like feel, equipped with a television and bed, making your pet feel like they never left home. The cat room will also be very home friendly, with room to frolic around or be lazy in front of the window. We have two large exercise areas for dogs to run around and play multiple times each day.

Pet Requirements

In order to board your pet, proof of current vaccination and parasite prevention are required prior to admission to the facility. If your pet received vaccinations from another veterinarian, the vaccination record must be presented prior to the reservation date in order to make the pet’s visit run smoothly.

  • Dog: Rabies, Bordetella (every 6 months) and Annual DHLPP vaccine.
  • Cat: Rabies, FeLV and Annual FVRCP vaccine.

In order to prevent parasite outbreaks at the boarding facility, your pet must be free of FLEAS, TICKS AND INTERNAL PARASITES. If external or internal parasites are found on your pet during their stay, an appropriate treatment will be provided AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE. All charges incurred during the visit are expected to be paid IN FULL AT TIME OF PICK-UP.

Items from home

If your pet requires medical treatment while boarding, please bring the items with you. Medication must be labeled with the prescribing VETERINARIAN’S PRESCRIPTION. Because sudden food changes can cause irritable bowels, it is suggested to bring your pet’s food from home. If you do not, the boarding facility will provide DRY food only. We do not provide towels or blankets for your pet. Kuranda beds are provided for the comfort of you four legged friend. If you would like to bring your pet’s personal bedding, toys or bowls please have it labeled with a permanent marker. Dogwood Animal Hospital will not be responsible for the loss or destruction of items brought to the boarding facility nor will Dogwood Animal Hospital or any of the staff be held responsible for any medical needs that may incur from items left with a boarder that have been given to by the owner.  


We offer baths for your dog the day of pick-up; please let the attendant know the day of check-in. If your pet soils itself during their stay at the boarding facility a bath will be given AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE.

Emergency Medical Care

If, in the attendant’s judgment, your dog or cat requires medical attention and we are unable to reach you, Dogwood Animal Hospital will treat your pet unless indicated on the Medical Emergency Form kept on file. If the veterinarian is unavailable at Dogwood Animal Hospital then your pet will be taken to the closest veterinary hospital or emergency clinic if needed.
