Please request dates via the Time to Pet portal as this is the best and fastest way to get a response. Space is limited for our overnight boarding crew based on size, 15-20 dogs allowed.
We look forward to hosting your pet. Before they stay with us please make sure to book an overnight boarding trial Monday - Thursday. After their trial you may begin to book any of our services. (Trials are a paid service $75)
You may book the trial same day as your meet and greet.
What do we look for in a trial?
First part of the day is ensure your pet can socialize well with other dogs/cats in group play while keeping a safe and fun environment.
The overnight part of the trial we want ensure your dog/cat can sleep well through the night. We like to ensure your pet feels at home and that they are relaxed while boarding with us. Lastly, having a trial is super important to your pet as we are strangers to them at first, being able to come back to a place they are familiar with helps ease them into not seeing you for a few days because we will no longer be strangers to them and most importantly, they trust us.

Report Card Updates & Sleeping Space
During their stay you will get a report card through our portal letting your know how your doggy is doing. Please allow up to 24 hours before your first report card. Please note: Report cards are not sent everyday but we do our best to keep you updated. For videos please follow our social media outlets @luckybuddies1.
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 crated 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. Your pet will sleep in the home, not outside of the home. All crates will 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 transparent with you if we are not the best fit for them. 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.
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.
Buddy showers and nail trims are also available so your buddy is nice and clean for you and your home. We will brush out their hair during this process. Check out our Buddy Shower tab for more details.
