The Dog Stop®
Dog of the Month

Nala has a smile you can see from a mile away. Her friends always have a blast when she comes to daycare! We love her upbeat attitude and playful energy. Daycare has been a rocking time since you’ve arrived! We love you

The Proof is in Our Customers

At The Dog Stop®, we strive for excellence and pup-satisfaction. But don’t just take it from us – see what dog owners just like you are saying!

“This place clearly cares about the dogs that come through their doors. I started bringing my dog to them after hearing nothing but good things from others. Even then, The Dog Stop went above and beyond my expectations. It can be hard to trust strangers to keep your pet’s best interests in mind, but I feel at ease every time I drop my pup off knowing he’s in good hands. ”

– Emily/Google

“As someone who has been in the Veterinary field for 27 years, I can honestly say this facility is cleaner, and more organized, than most Veterinary clinics I’ve worked in. The owner of the facility goes above, and beyond, to ensure each dog is cared for as if it were her own, in a clean, safe environment. ”

– Dara/Facebook

“We took our pup to stay at the Dog Stop for a night based on a friends recommendation and were so happy with our experience! Everyone was so welcoming and loving towards our dog. The cameras where you can watch them playing with other dogs is a nice touch and almost too addicting lol. They also have nice add ons (treats, walks, one on one play) for reasonable prices. They had even washed her blanket for us by the time we came to pick her up the next day! We will definitely be using them again and highly recommend.”

– Cassie/Yelp


What are your daycare & boarding requirements?

All dogs participating in daycare must demonstrate appropriate social skills and the ability to play safely with other dogs. During their first day and/or their first overnight stay at The Dog Stop® , we will evaluate your dog’s interactions with other guests. If we find your dog isn’t an appropriate fit for daycare, they will be separated from other canine guests for the remainder of their stay with regular one-on-one staff time, potty breaks and play sessions. Prior to boarding and/or daycare, you must provide proof that the following vaccinations are current: Bordetella, Parvovirus & Distemper, and Rabies. Puppies must have all three distemper boosters. We also require that your dog be on a regular flea and tick prevention program, such as Frontline or Advantage or wearing a Seresto Collar (no flea powder). Dogs over seven (7) months must be spayed or neutered to participate in daycare.

Do you have cameras?

Yes! All our dog daycare rooms are equipped with cameras so you can rest easy knowing your dog is being well cared for right from your phone or computer.

What happens if I cannot drop-off or pick-up my dog during The Dog Stop® business hours?

We will do our best to honor client special requests, although additional costs may apply. Tardiness that is not arranged for in advance may be subject to a one dollar per minute fee at the sole discretion of Management.

What happens over the holidays?

The Dog Stop® hours of operation will be limited to half days, 6:30 AM to 1:00 PM, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve unless the holiday falls on a weekend, in which case regular weekend hours will be observed. The Dog Stop® is closed to the public on all major holidays including but not limited to New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. We are still staffed to care for your pups during this time, we will just not be operating for daycare, grooming, or boarding pick-ups and drop-offs.


When and what will my dog(s) be fed?

We always suggest that you bring your dog’s food with you from home to limit any digestive upset they may experience by changing their diet. You can provide their food in individually portioned containers or bags. Write down the instructions on how much and how often they are fed right on the bag or container. In the event that food is not provided, your dog will be fed our House dog kibble at no additional cost. Dogs will be fed in the morning and evening unless otherwise requested by the Owner.

Do you administer medications?

Yes. We administer medications (pills, ointments, etc.) on a case-by-case basis. Just provide the medication and instructions at drop-off. If your dog has had a recent major medical issue, we may require a release from your vet before he is allowed to return to daycare or boarding.

Do I get a discount if I have multiple dogs?

Yes! We provide a discount for any additional dog. See pricing above for multiple dog discount.

Am I able to tour the facility before purchasing services?

 Yes! Stop in during our regular business hours and we’d be happy to give you a tour of the facility!
