Our facility provides the best dog boarding services in Rochester, NY. We create an enjoyable experience that mimics the same level of loving attention that you would lavish on your dog. No need to worry when your pet is in our hands, because daily updates throughout your pet’s stay will give you peace of mind, along with a few Insta-gram worthy photos!

All-Inclusive Dog boarding with us is like a vacation for your four-legged friend. We provide a safe, fun environment for group play or one-on one time with a staff member, simultaneously offering all dogs their own room for privacy, comfort and a little “me time.”

Our facility is fully staffed 24 hours a day, so pets get the attention, exercise, and care they truly need while at their home away from home.
