To board at The Soapy Dog, all dogs over the age of six months must be spayed or neutered.  We also require that all dogs are current on flea/tick/heartworm preventative and up-to-date on their Rabies, Distemper, and Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations. Puppies that have not finished their Distemper series must have had at least two rounds of shots. For dogs over 9 years old, which have a documented history of distemper shots, a titer test may be used in place of the distemper vaccination. Our staff will call your veterinarian prior to your dog’s visit to receive all vaccination information.

Hallmarks of The Soapy Dog Boarding Kennel:

  • Tender Loving Care:  Is there a special place your dog loves to be rubbed or a special toy he or she loves to play with?  Does your dog love to play fetch or simply live to roll over for a well-deserved belly rub? We specialize in special attention!   The staff of the Soapy Dog Boarding Kennel will shower your pup with love and attention so you can rest easy while you are away. Treats and peanut butter Kongs are here to keep everyone happy, and please feel free to bring their favorite toy or blanket.
  • Expandable Kennels: The Soapy Dog Boarding Kennel offers indoor rooms that are expandable to meet the needs of any size dog or family of dogs.  All kennels feature Kuranda dog beds for maximum support and comfort.  Temperature and sound are managed to provide your companion(s) with a low-stress environment in which to rest while you are away.
  • Sunshine and Exercise:  Dogs enjoy as much time as they like in large, outdoor play areas throughout each day. Lots of sunshine and exercise keep spirits high and tails a-waggin’! All boarding dogs are able to join the day care dogs at play each day. If for any reason your dog is not appropriate for social play, we provide safe, outdoor areas for them to enjoy the sunshine and get some one-on-one time with our staff. Whether your dog enjoys playing fetch, cooling off in a doggie pool or taking a nap in the sun, they’ll be sure to get plenty of Vitamin D at The Soapy Dog!
  • Why The Soapy Dog?  Because you can rest easy while they enjoy some time with us!  We love your pups and we live to see ‘em happy.
