Doggie Day Care is offered on an appointment-only basis*, Monday-Friday 7 am-7 pm.

We charge $25 for a whole day of daycare for 1 dog and $12 per day for the 2nd dog in the same room.

We also offer half-day of daycare (within 4 hours) for $13 for 1 dog and $12 per day for the 2nd dog in the same room

If doggie daycare services are needed on either a Saturday or Sunday, arrangements can be made pending the availability of space. 

A day of doggie daycare is filled with unlimited playtime with toys, employees, and other doggies, leashed (15 minutes) walks with their buddies every 3 hours (9 am, 12 pm, 3 pm...), and a simple lunchtime treat! Our doggie daycare guests enjoy all the same amenities as our boarding dogs do but get to go home at the end of the day.

Doggie Boarding is $43 per night 1st dog, $20 per night for every dog after the first if boarding in the same suite. If each dog requires a separate suite then rates are $43 per dog.

 ​ 

Our doggie vacationers, enjoy 5 (10-15 minute) leashed walks a day, and free-roaming playtime in between. Our normal mealtimes are 7 am and 5 pm, unless other instructions are given. Hope's Garden Resort does not provide meals for your pets, but does have an unlimited supply of treats! Our resort is all-inclusive, meaning we do not charge extra for unlimited doggie daycare style playtime, extra walks, administering medications, or giving treats! The resort also provides comfy raised hammock-like bedding along with food and water bowls. At the end of our last walks, everyone returns to their own private suite for a restful nights' sleep. We strive to make your dog feel as comfortable as possible, and digestion is a big part of their comfort. Our resort asks that you would provide your dogs' food that you routinely feed them at home for the duration of their stay. Upset digestion from changing foods too rapidly is not a good thing to combine with a new environment. While we tend to be a nice, quiet place for your dog to stay, they may still experience stress due to not being home and we want to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

What to know prior to booking Daycare or Boarding

 

There are two main aspects to take into consideration when deciding to bring your dog to day-care or boarding First you should consider your animals medical history. Then you must ask yourself the Golden Question.

 

Medical

There are vaccines that your furry friend must be up-to-date on before they can board at a facility, or come for day-care.​

  • Dogs require Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines.

  • We require both dogs to be spayed/neutered once old enough to go through the procedure, and to be on flea and tick prevention.

 

Why are these required?

Rabies vaccination requirements have helped drastically eliminate the amount of rabies cases within the United States since the conception of mandates.

Bordetella vaccines take up to two weeks after being given to reach full potential protection. It helps gives animals protection against kennel cough, and is a useful tool when dogs are in a social environment with other dogs.

Distemper vaccinations help protect against a highly contagious, often fatal disease caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and the nervous systems.

 

The Golden Question (Is this right for my dog?)

One of the most important questions each pet parent can ask themselves before boarding their animals, or scheduling day-care is “Is this the right fit for my furry friend?” Pet parents know their animals far better than any other, and they must take into consideration the personality and behaviors of their four-legged friends. Dogs are like people in that when young they want to socialize. It’s a very important part of their development and they learn lifelong lessons through playing and socializing. However, just like people as dogs get older their preferences change. Some decide they would rather not be around others (and that is okay), and so bringing them into a facility may in fact not give them a good experience. In this case hiring a home sitter through a respected service may be a much better option for them. Also, rescue dogs often come from a kaleidoscope of different backgrounds and may have trauma that they are working on overcoming. Sometimes what is best for them is home training, and possibly in extreme cases a professional trainer to help them overcome their past. In those instances, daycare and boarding may one day be a wonderful experience for them, but they may not be ready for it just yet.

*Dogs and cats who do not have an appointment may be turned away if facility is full. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
