  • We do not offer early check-in options for overnight stays at this time.
  • Larger room types are available for those who would like their family members (of the same species) to stay together.

    As required for all Overnight Stay reservations, a 50% deposit of the reservation estimate is required at the time of booking. All approved extended stays will be required to pay an additional 25% of the total reservation estimate upon check-in with the remaining balance for the stay due upon pick-up. For any reservation extensions of seven (7) nights or more, full payment will be due at the time of the requested extension. Please note that altering existing reservations cannot always be guaranteed, but we will do everything we can to accommodate changes.



    • Check-out times are from opening until 1pm. Guests checking out between 1pm and our lobby closing time will be charged 50% of the nightly rate.
    • If your pet is participating in Lodge & Play or a Grooming appointment on the last day of their stay you will not be charged for the final day.
    • All clients should allow at least 15 minutes for check-out.
    • Pet Guests not picked up before our lobby closing time will incur the same nightly room rate for each unscheduled night’s stay.
    • If you are going to extend your pet’s stay, please notify us as soon as possible, but no later than two hours before closing.
