While you’re at a hotel or away with friends or family, your dog can be in a suite and your cat in a condo. Now Boarding can also accommodate small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, etc.) in our climate controlled “critter” room.
Your pet gets daily maid service and round-the-clock beverage service. (In other words, your pet’s space is cleaned and sanitized daily, and there is 24-hour access to fresh water). You are welcome to bring machine washable blankets, towels or pillowcases from home that are not freshly laundered so that your dog or cat will be reminded of family and loved ones. We prefer that you bring your pet’s regular diet to avoid tummy upsets, but do offer a house brand of food for dogs and cats should you run out of food during their stay.
Now Boarding has 96 dog suites with individual indoor and outdoor runs. Your dog can have quiet time in a private space or get out for some social time in daycare with siblings and new friends. If you have more than one dog, they can have interconnected doorways for visiting or have them share a suite and qualify for our multi-pet discount for your second dog. Each dog gets access to their outdoor run throughout the day.
It’s a “suite life”: Whether your dog likes to cuddle, walk, or play ball, he/she will be given personal attention every day. Your dog will enjoy relaxing music, glass windows, and automatic water dishes. Our dog boarding area has been designed from the ground up to create a low stress environment for your pet. There are no more than seven suites grouped together in a given area and each area has its own heating ventilation and air-conditioning, minimizing kennel odor.
You may also choose one of these complimentary services which are included in the price of your dog's stay: individual 15 minute off-leash time with staff member or 40 minutes of group play.
Other services available at additional charge:
Now Boarding offers 34 cat condos. Your cat can cuddle up in one of our cozy condos. For the more adventuresome feline, all cats are offered daily romps in our cat atrium where they can climb, explore and enjoy the view.
A synthetic calming agent, (aka Pheromone Treatment) is available for an additional charge if your cat has difficulty adjusting to new environments.
Now Boarding can accommodate about 15 small animals in a climate-controlled, hygienic environment. We can board rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, birds and other small animals.
Every stay at Now Boarding includes great amenities, and there are lots of ways you can make your pet’s vacation extra special. Active pups can attend doggy daycare, exercise in the pool or get extra exercise each day. Shaggy pooches can visit the grooming salon to get their nails and hair trimmed just in time to go home. A nervous kitty can receive a calming pheromone treatment. Choose the a la carte options your pet will like best.

Your dog will enjoy a full day of daycare and then be given a personal suite after 4 pm to relax and unwind until you take your pooch home.
Having a party or remodeling? Need a night out? Bring your pet for a short spell (up to 15 hours)! She just needs to be home before the stroke of midnight! Your pet will have a ball!

You and your pet will appreciate the convenience afforded by our full-service salon right off the main lobby--grooming packages, haircuts, nail trims, water exercise, spa services, even paw-di-cures!
Grooming and bathing prices vary by breed and condition of coat. A bathing/grooming base price for your particular breed can be quoted, with final pricing confirmed after meeting your pet.
An exercise pool is also available for your pet. A typical exercise session is dependent upon the individual pet’s needs. One minute of pool time is equivalent to a one mile walk for the average dog. Please call us to discuss if pool exercise is right for your dog.
Enjoy peace of mind when you leave your pet at Now Boarding and your vehicle in our parking lot. Then hop the convenient transportation to and from the airport.
