The Dog Stop®
Dog of the Month

Sky has only been coming to us for a short time now but has completely stolen the hearts of every last employee. He is such a sweet gentle soul and is a model citizen!

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!

“I’ve been taking my dog, Jif, to the Dog Stop for over five years. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I know that when I drop off Jif for a day or a week, he’ll receive lots of hugs and the best of care. Sometimes I’ll set up a grooming appointment while he’s at the kennel. When I pick him up, he looks like the cutest dog ever!”

“My dog loves this place and the staff is amazing. Whenever I bring her in they are very excited to see her. I have also boarded her there. This place is top-notch ”

– Jonathan/Yelp

“Sydney loves to visit The Dog Stop East End. She barely says goodbye to us when we drop her off & can’t wait to play with all of her new friends. We’ve always had a good experience there and a very tired doggo after her stay (a win with an energetic lab)”

– Laura/Facebook

“The staff is amazing! They love their job and it shows. The website is great, the reservation process is easy and efficient, and the whole business is just so professional and well run. I love The Dog Stop East End and so does my pup!”

– Rosa/Facebook

“The Dog Stop is great! Even though our pup is not there every day, the staff recognizes him when he arrives and is always happy to see him. We love being able to see him on the Pup Cam. When he stays overnight, we always receive his items (leash, blanket) back in good condition. They’ve alerted us when there’s been any kind of issue (like a sore on his paw) and have discussed any care options. The staff is great with pets but also with us as owners, and it’s a great comfort to us knowing that when he is there, he is staying with someone we trust.”

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. Before dog 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 is 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 dog 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. If food is not provided, your dog will be fed our House dog kibble at an additional cost of $2 per meal. 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 dog 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 discounts

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!
