Why Happy Dog:

Cageless Dog Boarding consists of dogs staying in the Happy Dog Resort, a licensed one floor house that is especially equipped for dogs. It has non-absorbent floors & wall coverings to ensure effective sanitation for the safety of your pet. This however, is the only way in which Happy Dog resembles a dog boarding facility. Our facility is designed to make your dog think he/she is staying at someone's house, thereby greatly reducing his/her "away from home" stress.

The Happy Dog House:

The happy dog house has a doggie living room with vinyl couches, which is a designated room for our smaller guests; a  kitchen, a play room, as well as other resting rooms.. Other amenities include central A/C, cable television, a deck for lounging and.over a 1/4 of an acre of play yard surrounded by 6' stockade fencing. Our play yards are broken into 5 separate yards....please see pictures in gallery. Your dog spends his/her day interacting with other dogs and the staff in a free roaming environment. For his/her time with us, your dog is a part of an ever changing, yet well guided, "pack" or family of dogs.

Monitoring of your Dog:

Your dog's health, behavior, eating habits, emotional & physical needs are monitored and tended to all throughout the day by the animal caregivers. Dogs sleep freely or in crates, depending on their current lifestyle and displayed behavior.

During sleeping hours, the owners reside on the property. The Happy Dog house is equipped with a video surveillance system to monitor the dogs during sleeping hours, as well as a 24 hour alarm/fire monitoring service.


We would like to give you a bit of information about how we do things around here and why we do it.

We like to get to know each dog and want them to feel comfortable in this environment. Before accepting a dog for daycare or boarding, we recommend a trial day in daycare. This gives your dog a chance to learn the ropes, get to know our staff and the other dogs and then go home to decompress from a very busy day.  We want to be sure your dog is suited to boarding in this type of environment before taking any reservations. 

We have a very flexible daycare and boarding drop-off and pick-up schedule. Once you and your dog are comfortable with our facility we can walk you through all of the procedures. 

It is recommended that dogs that are here for vacation should be dropped off during the morning drop off if possible, in order to allow for proper playtime and socializing prior to bedtime. The nightly charge does include all daycare activities so if at all possible, please bring your dog early enough to enjoy the entire day! The dogs sleep better at night after a busy day and are more relaxed when sleeping alongside dogs they’ve been playing with all day.
