How do I make a reservation?

Reservations should be made as far in advance as possible. The 18 rooms at the Pooch Palace fill up quickly, especially during holiday times! Please call the Pooch Palace at 624-5164 or email us as soon as you know you will be needing accommodations for your dog.

Prior to your dog coming to stay at the Palace for the first time, we will schedule a complimentary pre-boarding visit so that you and your dog can come check things out and we can find out how best to meet your needs. Your dog will meet Kodi, our “greeter” dog, to see how they’ll do with someone they’ve never met before. Kodi is a 30-pound rescue, a good-natured little guy!

You will be asked to fill out the Boarding Application, which will give us vital information about you and your dog. This application is available (below) as a PDF file for you to download and fill out prior to your visit. If you are unable to download an application, please e-mail or call and we’d be happy to send you one in the mail.

We usually schedule visits between 11:30 am and 2 pm, anyday but Wednesday, and the visit usually lasts about a half hour. Give us a call at 624-5164 to schedule a visit, or e-mail us at poochpalace@southslope.net.

What vaccinations and other health issues will need to be addressed prior to my dog staying at the Palace?

All dogs staying at the Palace must be current with the following vaccinations: rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella (kennel cough). It is recommended that bordetella vaccinations be administered at least ten days prior to boarding. In addition, each dog boarder will need to be on a flea/tick preventative. It is strongly recommended that older dogs over the age of 7 have a current health check-up from their veterinarian to help insure that there are no underlying health problems.

Certification must be provided that shows your dog is current with the vaccinations required to stay at the Palace.

 

What will it cost for my dog to stay at the Pooch Palace?

Your dog will be given the Royal Treatment for $40.00 per night. The Royal Treatment ensures a stay fit for a king or queen, with full-time care and comfort in a clean, secure and fun environment. Food as scheduled, an endless supply of fresh water, time outdoors to run and play, and time indoors with staff.

For our longer-term guests we offer a discount of 10% for visits of 6 nights or longer.

We also offer family discounts for multiple dogs. Dogs from the same family are welcome to share a room, or better yet, a roomy suite! The Royal Treatment for two dogs sharing a standard room is $60.00 per night and for three dogs, $72.00 per night.
