When your pet comes to stay at Dandyland, they become a part of our family. There are several options for overnight boarding. We offer full-height indoor-outdoor runs or kennels for dogs. Cats will enjoy their own private room, outfitted with kitty condos. We also board ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters and other small animals, with owner-provided housing. Each of our boarding dogs receives two free individual business walks and playtimes outside every day. Business walks are five to ten minutes outside to allow them to do their business and play a little. We look forward to taking good care of your beloved pet. Contact us today to request a reservation.

Our Policies

We want your pet to have a great time with us, so we will do whatever we can to make their stay as comfortable and fun as possible. Our boarding policies include:

  • You may bring your pet’s favorite blanket, bedding, and/or toys for their stay provided they are labeled and expendable. We can provide all these amenities for your pet as well.
  • We are glad to give your pet our food or yours from home at no extra cost. If you choose to bring your pet’s food and treats, please bring them in a sealable, plastic container.
  • We will administer any necessary medications. Please make sure they are properly labeled. We do up to 3 meal times, treats at owner’s request, and affection throughout their stay.
  • You don’t have to worry about your pet being left alone. Ginny Kates, owner/operator, lives on site, and the center is monitored 24/7 by ADT Security.

  • Dogs: Rabies vaccine (with copy of vaccination record), Bordetella, and Distemper (DHLLP).
  • Cats: Rabies vaccine (with copy of vaccination record) and Distemper (FVRCP). Leukemia vaccine is highly recommended for outdoor cats.
  • All pets must be free of fleas, ticks, and parasites upon arrival. We reserve the right to treat the pet for fleas and ticks at the owner’s expense if we deem it necessary.
Here you’ll find a clean, welcoming environment, friendly staff, and room for your little (or not so little) ones to run and play. We have an open-door policy, so feel free to stop by during regular business hours for a tour!
