Boarding Policies

Rules to play & stay

  • Boarding charges begin on the day of drop off regardless of time.
  • Pets picked up prior to 1pm are not charged for that day.
  • We recommend that all pets remain on their current diet while boarding. Please bring just enough food for the stay in pre-packaged Ziploc bags per meal labeled with your pet’s name. If food is not provided, NutriSource Premium dog food will be fed.
  • All prescription medications and supplements should be provided in their original containers. We will follow the instructions prescribed by the veterinarian. Prescription medications should NOT be included/mixed in with prepackaged food. We will gladly administer any medication for a nominal charge of $0.50 per administration.
  • Peak times and holidays, an additional $3 charge per night for boarding services. Discounts for boarding multiple pets in the same family are still honored. Rates apply at a flat fee per dog, per night. Please call for more information.
  • Peak times and holiday boarding stays require deposit – $25 per dog in standard and deluxe runs, $50 per dog in suite runs. Your deposit is processed at the time you make your reservation, and is applied to your total upon check-out. You do not have a confirmed reservation until your deposit is received. There will be no refunds if you cancel for any reason.
  • All pets must be in good general health to board and play at American Boarding Kennels. No pets exhibiting signs of serious illness, pets with contagious viruses or pets with any other potentially transferable diseases/sickness will be accepted.

  • Any dog entering the kennel with fleas and/or ticks will be charged a $25 bathing fee in addition to the cost of the bat and dip, which will be added to the boarding bill.
  • We highly recommend a bath and/or grooming before your pet’s departure from out kennel due to the amount of play time everyone receives. Please inquire about our bathing and grooming services.
  • Extremely dirty or matted dogs will be groomed before entering the kennel and the charge will be added to the boarding bill.
  • Dogs that bite are difficult to handle, etc will incur an additional charge to be determined by the extra time to properly care for the dog.
