Boarding

We offer boarding while you travel for business or vacation. As dog owners, we know the stress that comes with leaving your dog in someone else’s care. At 2nd Family Dogs we treat your dogs like family!

We offer four sizes of private accommodations to fit every dog’s need. Kennel sizes are 3’x4’, 3’x6’, 6’x6’ or 9’x6’.

Of course, if you are boarding more than one pooch, you can have them share a suite so they are together as they are at home.

When not sleeping, relaxing or eating in their private suite, your dog will be playing in either the large dog play room which is 2,200 square feet or the small dog play room which is 1,100 square feet. Our outdoor play area is 16,000 square feet with plenty of room for running, jumping, and all round fun.

We also offer four play areas to fit every dog's need.  When making a reservation, we will ask you to select the play area you think fits your pup.  However, 2nd Family reserves the right to make adjustments based on size, temperament and activity level.

In the hot summer months ... cool pools, shade, and misters are provided. Of course, whether inside or outside they are always supervised by our dog loving staff members.

You are welcome to bring your own food as well as treats and appropriate toys. If you prefer, we can feed your dog from our stock of premium grade dry dog food.

We provide sanitized bedding for your pup or you can bring your own – either way we will make sure your dog is comfy and enjoying the temperature controlled environment in style. Water is provided in every kennel.

Our on-site night staff member is there to ensure a safe environment for your special pooch.

The late pick up fee of $25 per day in addition to the boarding rate will apply.

Daycare

While your dog is at 2nd Family daycare, you know he/she is not pining away, bored, worried, stressed, sleeping all day, or staring at the door waiting for your return. Instead, while you do what you do, let your pup stay with us to socialize, exercise and enjoy playing with the pack. Our facility is made for lots of safe fun.

Indoors, 2nd Family includes 3,300 square feet of playroom space for those that want to play indoors, relax or snooze. Our outdoor play area is 16,000 square feet with plenty of room for running, jumping, and all round fun.

We also offer four play areas to fit every dog's need.  When making a reservation, we will ask you to select the play area you think fits your pup.  However, 2nd Family reserves the right to make adjustments based on size, temperament and activity level.

We always have plenty of water available for the dogs.  In the hot summer months, pools, shade, and misters are provided. Our dog playground equipment keeps things interactive and interesting.

Whether your dog is inside or outside they are always supervised by our dog loving staff members.

Our goal is to give your pet the treatment they deserve and the attention you want them to have.

If your dog eats a meal during the day, please be sure your dog has food before attending daycare as we don't provide a lunch time service for daycare dogs.

Our Daycare is open from 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday hours are from 9am to 5pm.

Here are our 4 Play Areas:

Big and Medium Dogs
Play Group 1:

This area is for dogs that are fit, physically active and able to play with other dogs in a frisky group environment.  The typical weight category for this group would be over 35 pounds.

Elderly or Special Physical Issues Big/Medium Dogs
Play Group 2:

This area is for elderly or physically limited medium or large dogs (over 35 pounds) that can't hold up to the more physical demands of play with younger dogs and need to be in a separate area to help protect them from heavy play activity.

Small and Medium Dogs
Play Group 3:

This area is for dogs that are small to medium in size weighing approximately 11 - 35 pounds.  This is an active play group and dogs need to be physically fit to play with dogs in a frisky group environment

Tiny, Frail Dogs
Play Group 4:

This area is for dogs approximately 10 pounds and under.  Elderly small dogs or dogs with physical limitations that are small will also be in this group. 

2nd Family Discretion:   At our discretion, we reserve the right to move a dog to a different play area if their behavior or physical condition requires a change in the best interest of the dog in question or the best interests of the dogs with whom they interact.
