We offer exclusive in-home boarding (we welcome up to 5 dogs at a time into our home, but during peak seasons and on overlapping days we may be able to accommodate a couple more furr-friends), which means that your pups will live, sleep and play IN our comfy HOME and our spacious backyard. Because we do only take such a small number of dogs at a time, we can also pay close attention to the needs of your dog - so if your best friend would rather have a quiet nap and not be disturbed or he/she would like to take a dip in the stream on a hot summer day we will be able cater to that too.
If your 4-legged companion has any special needs (like being on medication or needing special workout sessions or help due to disability) we will lovingly see to any of that too and make sure to get an in-depth briefing from you on all things that need to be considered.
Even though we do not use kennels, puppies will be crate trained (if they haven't been already) and will sleep in the comfort of their own little "house". Crates are not only safe places for puppies but also ensure proper house training, prevent destructive chewing and will allow puppies the time out that they so need but otherwise wouldn't always take.
For any length of boarding stays, we require an evaluation day prior to your booking. During this evaluation day we get to know your pup, make sure he or she feels comfortable with us and our dog ohana and revise all the pre-boarding information we need for his/her stay. If your dog has not boarded with us before and you consider to have him/her stay with us, please complete our Boarding Application Form and we will contact you to schedule your dog’s evaluation.
Most dogs that come to us have sufficient basic manners and obedience and don't need much training. However, if you can pinpoint to any issues that you are experiencing in your own home it will most likely be elevated at our place since it is a new location for your pup. We will work with your dog on any of these issues as well as on anything else necessary to make their stay here as well as their time with all the other pups as pawsome as possible.
As a assistant dog trainer at Ohana Pet, Kristin also teaches doggie owners to train their dogs via home-visit consultations as well as dog classes and works with those dogs that need a long term training plan through walk & train services. Head over to Ohana Pet to learn more about available training services and for a complete dog class schedule.
We all have had busy or difficult times in our lives that make it a bit more challenging to ensure your pup gets the attention and exercise they need and deserve. If you feel like your furry pal is spending way too much time alone at home and really needs to get out to play for a day, then contact us to arrange a day play date for your pup - it is basically the same thing as boarding with us, just without the overnight stay and it automatically counts as an evaluation for your dog as well. Contact us to schedule your dog’s day out.
Please note: At this time we only offer day care on a case to case and appointment basis. We do not offer regular day play days at the moment but may add this service in the future.
