We offer boarding in our home located in the Montclair District of Oakland.  When your pup stays with us it becomes a family member. Nora and I absolutely LOVE having doggy house guests.  Luna, our smooth coat collie/husky mix, feels the same way.  She is always happy to play and share.  We have several dog beds but don't mind a little couch surfing unless you prefer them to stay off of furniture.  We also have several crates.  Some dogs love crates and treat them like their own little den.  Any dog that is not crate trained and not destructive is always welcome to have free roam.  All dogs staying with us get one long walk every day in addition to plenty of playtime and socializing at the house. If there is a space in our pack walk that day we may bring your dog.  We are also happy and willing to accommodate most special requests such as medical needs etc.  









$80/night for a multiple night stay

$85 for 1 single night or a trial night

Holiday Period Rates- additional $10/night


We charge by the night.  Check in is between 5:00-9:00 p.m. of the first night of boarding.  During the week we can accommodate a morning exchange at 9:30 a.m. which comes with a $15 daycare fee.  All pick up/drop off's are by appointment only.  We do not make appointments before 11:00 a.m. on the weekend. 


-All dogs must be at least 18 months old and be current on all shots and flea/tick meds. 


-For the safety of all of our guests, we do not accept dogs with aggression issues. 


-We generally cannot accommodate dogs with higher degrees of separation anxiety. 


-Dogs less that 3 years old must be crate trained.  Some exceptions can be made for dogs who are calm and 100% trustworthy when unsupervised.  

-Dogs with very high energy/puppy energy are often not a good fit in our home.  We regularly board multiple dogs at a time and aim to keep our home peaceful. 

-Dogs must have reasonably good manners, be fully house trained and be nondestructive (chewing,etc.)
