DOG BOARDING


DOG BOARDING ON MANHATTAN’S UPPER WEST SIDE

A typical boarding day starts with a two-hour walk in a neighboring park (Riverside, Morningside or Central Park), breakfast around 8:30, in-house roughhouse for about half an hour, naps until early afternoon, another hour outdoors (usually a leash walk up and around a neighboring park or sometimes a trip to the dog run), early supper at 4:00, lounging about (and, if the company is right, the toy box is brought out), a bedtime stroll around the block and early retirement.

Dog toys, treats, and beds abound, and there are usually a sufficient number of human laps to accommodate demand. Guests are free to roam, help with housework, guard the front door and generally do what they do at home. A large crate is set up for those who want it.

Boarding must be limited to a few dogs, so get your reservations in early. You’d be surprised how far in advance some people plan!  Make sure we have your signed Service Agreement, your Basic Info form and proof that inoculations are current.  Bring food & medicine, a warm coat for the winter, and a collar with tags, but nothing else. Drop off time is at 9 am or by special arrangement and pick-ups are any time before closing, at 9:00 pm, although accommodation is usually made until midnight.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF TWO ADDITIONAL FACTS AFFECTING RATES:


1) We only accept morning drop-offs. Although our drop-off time is 9 am, we can by special arrangement receive dogs from 6:30 am until noon. We do not accept afternoon or evening drop-offs because our guests need to spend time with us and with each other in order to satisfy their basic questions: Yes, you will be fed. Yes, you will be taken out. Yes, the other dogs are quite nice and you will be quite safe and happy here.

2) Dogs must be picked up between 9:00-10 am to qualify for the one-day rate.  Between 10:00 and 1:00 pm, we charge for half a day.  After 1:00 pm we call it a full day.  And unlike people hotels, we charge by the day here, not the night.  You, after all, don’t need so many walks!
