“We take our dog down to the dog stop usually 3 days a week for daycare. The staff loves our guy and takes great care of him. He has a blast and comes home wiped out after a fun day. The camera feeds on their app are fun to watch the dogs play and have fun! We have boarded him there as well and again same great experience. We’ve been loyal customers and will continue to be!!!”

“Absolutely! First time boarding our puppy Benelli and they did a fantastic job as always. Highly recommended. The staff is very compassionate and caring. A great big shout out to the owners who “always” go above and beyond. ”

– Tammy/Facebook

“We toured the facility before we boarded our dog there for a week. The Dog Stop was unbelievably clean and well maintained. We picked up Chunk this morning and he was happy, well taken care of, and even made some friends! We are very happy and will be back. Thank you for taking care of our baby!!”

– Nicole/Google

“We LOVE taking our dog to The Dog Stop in Upper St Clair. Our dog is happy going there. He is clearly well loved by the people there, and he is happy to go and spend time with friends. We can watch him playing and napping (he loves to lie there and watch the other dogs, and we feel it’s a clear sign how comfortable he is). We are happy to board him there when needed, and they take great care of him. Definitely recommend!”

– Jessica/Google

“The staff is kind, friendly, honest, and caring. The facility is clean and organized appropriately for dogs to play and have fun. Dooby comes home tired and happy, thank you for giving me peace of mind and keeping him safe while I am at work. I highly recommend the Dog Stop!! 💕♥️🐶 🐕”

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.

To view on your phone, all you have to do is download The Dog Stop app to view and enter your account info.

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 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 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!
