We look forward to hosting your pet! Before they stay with us, please make sure to book an overnight boarding trial Monday - Thursday drop off at 9AM pick up at 9AM next business day. After a successful trial, you may begin to book any of our services (Trials are a $75 service).
What do we look for on their overnight boarding trial?
We ensure your pet can socialize well with other dogs during group play while keeping a fun and safe environment. During the overnight portion, we want to ensure your dog can sleep well through the night with out showing signs of anxiety. Lastly, we ensure that all pets do well with our dog handlers.

Report Card Updates & Sleeping Space
During their stay, you will get a report card through our portal letting you know how your doggy is doing. Please allow up to 24 hours before your first report card. Please note: Report cards are not sent every day but we do our best to keep you updated. For videos, please follow our social media outlets @luckybuddies1 or request our premium report card for an additional fee.
Our sleeping area is monitored by home cameras and someone sleeps at the home at all times.
We have discovered that our overnight buddies need their resting time as they do not get to go home and rest. It is important for their health that they get to rest throughout the day as they get plenty of exercise here. Your pet will be kenneled at night so they get their own space and it keeps all pets safe during their stay. We have crates of all sizes to accommodate small to large breeds. All kennels have access to water & food and a quiet place for them to nap as instrumental music is played through the day/night.
If your dog is not crate trained, do not worry. After their evaluation we will be discuss next steps with you based on how they do. Many dogs that are not crate trained do well in the crate as they are tired at the end of day and personal space is needed. Please note if your pet suffers from separation anxiety a human does not sleep in the same room as them.
If your pet is staying with us for a few days, we would recommend signing them up for one of our doggy events and or a neighborhood walk so they can step out of the home. We often have buddy hikes, beach days, and neighborhood walks that are available to you. Grooming services are also available. Check out our Grooming tab for more details.
