Boarding & Doggie Daycare

We desire to create the greatest possible experience for your adorable pets while they are with us. The best way we know how to accomplish this is by placing them in a setting modeled after the coziness back home. Our accommodations include:


  • Luxury Boarding – We are currently the only pet resort in the area that offers in-house doggie suites.  Made with screen doors and walls, our custom doggie rooms help give your ‘fur baby’ an added sense of freedom. Available in individual and family sizes.   


  • Doggie Lounge – Designed after a living room, our indoor play area gives your pets a feeling of familiarity while they are away from home. The ultimate spot for playing or relaxing inside.

  • Tail Wagging Fun – Our enthusiastic team celebrates your doggie’s right to play and get some beneficial exercise. Separate outdoor play areas for small and large dogs, wading pools in the summertime, and 6ft. high fencing to protect your pets from harm’s way.

  • VIP Treatment – Perfect for pet parents who consider their doggies a part of the family, our ‘Very Important Pup’ program allows you to request that your dog stay at the home of one of our dedicated staff members.

"Our babies were loved, spoiled, and especially well cared for at Learn, Play, Stay Doggie Resort. Donna is the best and the staff are great as well. We will have them care for our six pups again whenever we go out of town. The facilities are excellent and we really loved that each of our six pups had their own room."

Guest Policies


  • Please note that in order to use any of the services we offer, your ‘fur baby’ must be up to date on their DHPPV, Bordetella, and Rabies vaccinations. We also highly recommend they are vaccinated against Leptospirosis.

  • Owners must submit a copy of their dog's vet records showing that all of these shots are up to date at least 14 days prior to the time of drop off for any service. Failure to do so will result in us not being able to provide any services for your dog.

  • If your dog has had the Intranasal Bordetella vaccination, we will accept those shot records 48 hours prior to drop off.

Flea Prevention

  • Your dog must be on flea prevention. If a flea is caught on your dog upon its arrival, a flea bath will be given and the owner will be responsible for the charge totaling $20.00 for a flea bath. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation!

Temperament Test

  • Prior to enrolling in our daycare program, we require that your dog complete a Temperament Test. Each test is done by appointment, costs $10, and typically lasts about 10 minutes. Our certified dog trainer will evaluate and verify that your pet is a good fit for daycare. This will ensure that every doggie guest enjoys a safe, positive, and playful experience during their visit.

Spay/Neuter Requirement

  • At Learn Play Stay Doggie Resort, we are committed to the health, safety, and well-being of each of our doggie guests. For this reason, we require that all male dogs over age 6 months be neutered prior to attending our daycare services. We accept non-neutered and non-spayed dogs for boarding as well as non-spayed dogs for daycare as long as the females are not in heat.

Boarding Cancellation Policy

  • We require 48 hours notice when canceling a reservation. Failure to cancel 48 hours prior to your dog's scheduled arrival will result in a $28 overnight boarding fee.
