Here's what you need to know about OKC dog boarding.
Frequently Asked Dog Boarding Questions
Who We Are
We are a complete pet service facility dedicated to providing superb care for your pet. Our services include a vet clinic, grooming, training, daycare, boarding, and an athletic department, all in a fear-free environment.
We are conveniently located in downtown Oklahoma City, making it easy for you to drop off and pick up. Boarding with us means that your dog has access to all of the other wonderful services that we offer.
How We Handle Boarding Your Dog
We offer a home away from home for your dog that goes much further than a kennel to stay in. We have a fear-free color scheme and always handle dogs with patience and care. These measures significantly minimize the anxiety that they'll feel while they're away from home.
If your dog has special medical needs, we also offer medical boarding, where they will have the supervision of medical staff and access to any necessary medical equipment.
Dogs learn best when they have short, fun training sessions intermingled with periods of rest and free play. Our boarding and playgroup structure provides the ideal environment for highly effective training that is also fun and rewarding for your dog.
Our training process is built on the bond between human and dog. Our doctor, Dr. Carlton, has experience with military canines, so she has an extensive first-hand understanding of how important the bond between dog and handler is.
We offer both basic training and specialized training for behavior concerns. Whether you have a puppy or an older dog or have adopted a dog with some behavior problems, we can use your dog’s boarding experience to give them superb positive training.
We offer a full-service veterinary clinic. Our veterinary care team does more than treat symptoms. They form a meaningful partnership with you and your dog to care for your dog’s medical and behavioral needs.
We have complete diagnostic equipment, including digital x-rays, in-house labs, ultrasound, dental X-rays, and more. We'll discuss your pet’s care at length to understand exactly what medical needs you are concerned about and form a plan for care that works well for you.
Whether your dog has current medical needs or not, boarding dogs always have access to medical care from our full-service clinic. If there is any problem while your dog is boarding or in doggy daycare, you can be sure that great medical care is right on hand.
When you pick your pup up from boarding, you want to give him a big hug and probably don't want to smell a strong doggy odor. We have professional and standard grooming services to give your pup the groom they need. If your dog stays for three days or more, a free bath is included.
Our groomers consult with you about exactly what you want. Our fear-free mentality extends to grooming, so you can be confident that your dog will enjoy their grooming experience.
Our groomers work closely with our veterinary clinic, so if they discover anything concerning while they are grooming your dog, they can easily talk to veterinary staff. That way, they can confidently let you know if there's something that you should be concerned about.
If you'd rather give your dog a quick wash yourself when you pick them up, we have two self-service wash stations that you are welcome to use at any time.

Dog Boarding Health Requirements
For the safety of all of our canine guests, we are very strict about certain health requirements and vaccinations. Since we have a full veterinary clinic, we are happy to help you get your dog up to date before it is time for them to board with us. Here are the vaccinations that we require:
- Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo, & Leptospirosis. If all of these vaccines are up-to-date except for Lepto, we can perform this vaccine on their first day and booster on the same day.
- Bordetella & Parainfluenza Combination Intranasal. “Kennel cough” is an upper respiratory infection and can spread easily in boarding situations. This simple vaccine is administered in your dog's nose.
- Canine Influenza (strongly recommended)
- Rabies. This vaccination is required by law and must be done before coming to boarding.
Other Dog Boarding Requirements
- Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. We do not require heartworm prevention, but we strongly recommend it, especially since dogs will have the opportunity to play outside where there may be mosquitoes.
- Annual fecal parasite test. We require a cleared fecal test. We are happy to perform this ourselves prior to boarding, but if it does not come up clear, your dog would not be able to board.
We Also Offer Holiday Dog Boarding
Whether you are going away or having guests over, boarding is a good idea. The holidays can be a dangerous time for pets. New people, strange noises, lots of food, and distractions for you can be a recipe for disaster. If you don't want to worry about your dog getting into Thanksgiving dinner, have them stay and play with us instead.
The holidays are the most popular time of year to travel, so it should be no surprise that this is also the busiest time for people to board their pets. We are aware of the surge at the holiday time and carefully prepare our staff and kennels, but we still recommend that you book as early as possible to be sure that we will have room for your dog.
