Hotel Stay - Restless/ Destructive Pups

Dogs sleep in the open in our upstairs hotel loft with the exception of destructive pups who may be chewing/tearing up items overnight or cannot settle to sleep (continuous play). To avoid you having to pay continued damage fees (ie your dog ripped open a bed or blanket overnight) We reserve the right to move your pup to the calm room or crated as needed.


Only leash, collar/harness, coat/sweater if needed,  food and medicines/medical tools should be sent with your dog to the lounge/hotel.  No personal belongings at the space please. We have everything they need. We are not responsible for loss or damage to personal items sent with your dog.

Please review our strict requirements for food/medicine packing prior to your dog's stay.

All food must be labeled and portioned in sealed ziploc baggies (1 meal per bag) and in your labeled tote bag.

All medicines must include concise,  printed instructions taped on to a pill box or other container with all medical items (ie syringes, pill pockets etc).

If your dog is not eating during their stay due to homesickness, we may add salmon oil supplements or home made meal mixers to get them to eat (additional charges apply).

We use commands and behavioral corrective tools to create a safe, happy, behaviorally well adjusted pack environment for lounge and hotel services. We believe in sending your dog home behaviorally better than they come in and we assert healthy boundaries in the playgroup by correcting for mounting, incessant barking, reactivity, and other undesirable behaviors. These corrections include water bottle spritzing , humane vibrational collars that beep for incessant barking, ultrasonic beep correction for incessant barking, crated time outs, leash control with slip leads to redirect, belly bands as needed for male dogs, & verbal cues/commands. 

Belly Bands

All male dogs require the use of belly bands while indoors to prevent marking and indoor accidents. We provide these at the entrance for you to put on your pup before entering the space.

Add Ons

We provide a variety of luxury add on services including special treats, activities, and spa services. Select "additional services" from the drop down at booking to add to your visit.


Each owner is fully responsible for their dog's behaviors at our space. Should your dog damage the space/supplies, harm another dog or human -- the owner is liable for all monetary and legal damages incurred.


We reserve the right at any time to change prices with or without notice.
