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!

“Samson had a blast! We watched him on the pup cam and all of the dogs looked like they were happy and having fun. Everyone was so kind, welcoming and helpful.”

– Beth/Google

“We have been customers at the Dog Stop since we rescued our Zelda. She loved doggie daycare, she participated in the training classes and enjoyed her stays away playing with the other pups. The staff always greeted her by name and looked after her as if she was their own. We have only had positive experiences and great service. All of our family dogs stay at The Dog Stop when they travel. We have and will continue to recommend pet parents utilize the Dog Stop. ”

– Courtney/Yelp

“My dog Alfie has been coming to The Dog Stop for grooming, daycare, and boarding since he was just a puppy. He gets so excited when we pull into the parking lot and runs in to have fun with his human and doggy friends without even saying goodbye! All of the employees are so kind and caring, I have no worries at all leaving Alfie while I go to work for 12-hour shifts. Plus it is fun to check in on him on the Teacup Room daycare camera when I’m at work! ”

– Annabel/Facebook

“I have taken all three of my dogs to the Dog Stop. We consistently receive professional and warm responses when in the store. All staff know my name and my dog. They are prompt to respond to phone calls and have worked with me during periods of emergency last minute day care or boarding. I believe they care about my pet and her safety and happiness. I do not hesitate to leave her in their care.”

– April/Yelp

“We love the West Liberty Dog Stop! They have been taking care of our dog Parker since he was a puppy. He’s spent a lot of time there for both daycare and boarding and we’ve always been so happy with his care. The staff are lovely – grateful to have this great place close by.”

– Amanda/Google

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!
