Boarding Policies

Our doggie daycare is a personalized half-day or full day of care, filled with a lot of one-on-one attention. We maintain a small number of dogs so Stubby’s is a perfect setting for the nervous dog that does not like a chaotic environment. Our setting is great for the elderly dog that just wants love and peace. All pets go outside for potty breaks and a brisk walk.

The same is true for our boarding. It is also on a small scale, which creates a peaceful night’s stay. Review the policies below for more details. Please call with questions.

Stubby’s also has cat boarding. Call for details.

Stubby’s Boarding Policies

Age of Pet

All pets must be 16 weeks of age.

Vaccination Records

It is the owner’s responsibility to provide current vaccine records to Stubby’s prior to their admittance for boarding – for dogs to include Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella. We recommend Bordetella within 6 months of boarding and at least 7 days prior to boarding date. Cat’s vaccines are to include Rabies and FVRCP.

Agreement for Veterinary Services

If pet becomes ill or injured, or if the state of the pet’s health otherwise is reasonably believed to require professional attention, Stubby’s, in its sole discretion after making reasonable attempts to contact the Owner or alternative contact using the information provided, may engage the services of a veterinarian or administer medication or give other requisite attention to the animal, and the expenses shall be paid by the Owner. By signing the Boarding Contract, you have authorized us to seek veterinary care and you agree to pay for any associated costs.


Boarding fees are payable 50% at check-in and remainder of fees at pick-up. For holiday periods, we may request a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. If you cancel and we are able to rebook the suite we will gladly refund the 50% deposit.
