North Paw is the first team to offer safe and cozy overnight boarding for smaller dogs in a daycare that is designed for the small dog experience. We have homey bungalows that serve as luxury suites for 1-multiple dogs. Our video & temperature controls monitor the safety and comfort of your beloved pup 24/7. The boarding space is an interior room that is insulated from the sounds of weather and our building-wide generator guarantees power is never lost to the building.
Dogs are dropped off between 6:30am-9am on the first day of the reservation. They participate in daycare throughout their stay. On the final day of the reservation, dogs are picked up either between 6:30am-9am or 3pm-6pm just as is typical for the daycare dogs.
Multiple Pet Discount
Dogs from the same family receive 10% off their boarding rate.
Dogs in boarding will be exposed to the same environment as daycare dogs, therefore the requirements are the same as listed under Daycare.
Dogs new to boarding at North Paw must have at least 1 sleepover visit prior to a multi-day visit or first time weekend stay. This is to ensure your dog is comfortable in the environment. We require this during the week days (Monday through Thursday night) so that your Little can experience a full typical day of daycare.

Food & Instructions
Medication & Instructions
Chewing/Canine Enrichment Object. We highly recommend the Toppl. Please consider whether this or other objects are choking hazards for your dog. We also understand that it can be soothing to have something that smells like home. We allow 1 towel or small blanket and 1 toy, both of which must be labeled. We will do our best to return items in the same condition they arrived however we may not have time to launder the items. We cannot be responsible for lost, dirty, or damaged items.
Owners should provide the name of someone within close range of North Paw who can pick up their dog in case of illness or injury. This is no different than if a child were at a camp. North Paw is not a veterinary clinic and will advise owners when it is necessary for their animal to be picked up, due to health or behavioral concerns. The expectation is that the dog is picked up by 6pm if the communication occurs Monday-Friday.
Check Ins & Check Outs
Check in for boarding is between 6:30am and 9am. A full day charge is applied on check in days regardless of drop off time. Saturday and Sunday check ins are at an additional $10 charge and can be arranged by appointment if care team members are available.
Check out is by 9am (Monday-Friday) on the last date of the reservation. If check out is after 9am, daycare rates apply. Late charges apply to dogs not picked up by 6pm.
Dogs not picked up by 6:15pm will be placed into boarding and an additional boarding day will be charged.
Saturday and Sunday check outs are at an additional $10 charge and can be arranged by appointment.
*Boarding Dogs Participating in Daycare
The inclusion of daycare for some boarding dogs is a benefit only for the dogs for whom daycare would be a healthy and positive experience. Boarding dogs can participate in daycare at no additional cost if our team determines they would generally enjoy this experience. The North Paw training team has full discretion in determining whether or not a dog in boarding participates in daycare. If a boarding dog does not join daycare there is no reduction of boarding cost.
Cancellations & No Show Policy
Cancellations must be made by 9am, 2 days in advance of the date of your dog's boarding reservation for non-holidays. Any reservations over holidays require 5 days in advance notice. Dogs that do not show up for their reserved boarding date will be charged for the dates of the reservation. No exceptions.
Dogs that leave daycare early for any reason are expected to pay the full daycare rate. There are no exceptions to this including illness, injury or travel issues on the part of the owner.
