Our boarding services are offered to qualified DogJoy members that have successfully completed our training programs and reliably respond to people and dogs in our off-leash social environment. They have also proven that they are comfortable and relaxed while in our care, and in their room during rest times.
While you’re away your dog also gets a vacation!
Your dog will have his own private room with patio and mini-yard attached, play time in our amazing outdoor play yards with other dogs (with your permission), relax time in our Lodge’s Great Room and much more!
DogJoy is unlike any other boarding or daycare facility. We focus on dogs being active, mentally and physically stimulated, and having fun in a group environment where they are able to listen reliably to a person regardless of the dogs around them. Dogs run free with structure at DogJoy. We implement a daily manners reinforcement program so that your dog will learn to focus and respond to humans around distractions. Your dog will come home better behaved for having stayed with us.
Dog-friendly dogs will spend time in play groups with staff members and other dogs, either outside in our amazing play yards (weather permitting) or in the Lodge’s air-conditioned Great Room. The Great Room is also a great place for lounging on a comfy dog bed or catching up on the latest DogJoy happenings.
We also provide lots of toys in our yards to play with (when safe to do so), so rest assured that your companion will never get bored. During the warmer months, splash pools are provided for those wishing to cool down. Have a water-loving pup? You can even request that your dog be a member at our ‘Splash and Play Park’ during their stay, where your dog can play on the splash pad, hang out at the beach entry, chill on the island, or swim their heart out in the deep end!
When it’s mid-day nap time or nighttime your dog gets to relax in the lodge, in their own air-conditioned room. During these times all lights are turned off, dog-specific calming music is played, and essential oils are diffused in the lodge to promote relaxation and relieve any possible stressors. During the day, between play sessions outside with friends, they will also get rest time in their lodge room with access to their own private patio with mini-yard, shall they decide to relax outside on the “grass” instead.
Your dog won’t be subjected to the constant barking, excessive time in kennels, and cold cinder block runs of a typical boarding kennel here. We believe that dogs will be much happier and come home much healthier if they stay in a happy, fun, stress-free, home-like environment while you are away. Don’t feel guilty about leaving your furry friend behind because chances are he’ll have more fun than you will!
*There is a $5/night applied to boarding reservations made during Peak Seasons – Spring Break, Easter, Memorial Day, Summer Break, Independence Day, Labor Day, and the Holiday Season (Nov 15th – Jan 2nd).

Boarding School *Not available at this time*
Your dog will work with a trainer throughout the day, who will focus on improving your dog’s behavior through positive reinforcement methods and fun games. We have several programs to choose from and each program includes private lessons with you, the owner, so that your dog understands that these new behaviors are also required of them at home, and out and about with you too (very important in order for Boarding School to be successful).
An initial consultation with your trainer is required before scheduling Boarding School. Pricing is based on the type of training needed and the length of stay, which is determined by what your training goals are and your dog’s current training abilities. Space is limited and must be scheduled in advance.
