Frequently asked...

Yes we do require a deposit of $25 for any dog or cat boarding stay (including Short Spell).  For Major Holidays (see “Do your rates go up for holiday boarding” FAQ for holiday information) we require a 14-day notice and for non-Holiday reservations we require a 7-day notice.  If you keep your reservation, we'll apply the $25 deposit to your final bill. If you cancel your reservation with notice less than the required period, your deposit will be forfeited.

We want your furred or feathered buddy to feel cozy and relaxed at Now Boarding. That’s why we encourage you to bring the comforts of home to us. Please label your pet’s belongings before you arrive for check-in:

Food: Yes, please bring your pet's food and treats. We recommend leaving an extra day’s worth of food in case your travel is delayed. Should your pet run out of food, we’ll provide food until your return for $3.00 per day, per pet.

Medication and/or Supplements: We will gladly administer non-injectable medications and supplements to your pets. At check-in, please bring the medication(s) and supplements along with clear instructions on how your pet should receive them.

Bedding: Familiar-smelling bedding helps every pet feel at home. Please feel free to bring your furkid’s bed or blanket for his suite. All blankets and beds must be machine washable in a standard size washer. Please do not bring comforters, quilts, or sleeping bags.

Toys:  You are welcome to bring up to 3 of your pet's favorite toys. For the safety of your pet, we ask that you not bring rawhides, pigs’ ears or rope toys, as these can pose a choking hazard.

Now Boarding is not responsible for lost or damaged items.

We believe that if a dog isn’t used to hours and hours of vigorous play as part of his daily routine, it isn’t optimal for him while boarding. At Now Boarding, your dog has ample opportunity to play with other dogs or run after a ball with a staff member.  Playtime is balanced with downtime, just like when your pooch is at home.

We offer a standard boarding service with a la carte options, which means you can customize your pet’s stay with play time, grooming, and more. As part of our standard service, complimentary exercise is provided for all dogs with either a 15-minute one-on-one session with a staff person, or a 40-minute group play session with other dogs (an approved behavior assessment is required for the group play option).  All boarded dogs are let out into their individual outdoor run 3 times per day, and cats enjoy a 30-minute complimentary cuddle daily. Check out rates & packages for a complete list of a la carte options. 

Yes, we offer transportation both to and from either terminal. You’ll be given a phone number to call for transport details (when and where to meet the shuttle).
