We provide Canine Overnight Boarding Camp 365 days of the year! Our office is closed on on all major holidays for boarding check ins and boarding check outs. (Those days include Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. We close at 10 am for check ins and check outs on Christmas Eve.)
An additional late fee of $25 will be assessed for your pet if he is not picked up by closing at 4:00 pm. We do not do after hours check outs–an unscheduled boarding check out begins at 8:00 a.m. the following morning on weekdays and at 10 am on weekends.
Our facility is unlike any other in Estes Park. It includes all the comforts of home (see Facility Photos for a tour) plus the added feature of an indoor play room for small dogs as well as two large, outdoor play yards surrounded by a six foot cedar fence with supervisors in the yard giving your pet one on one attention. The indoor playroom provides a much needed outlet for our smaller dogs, puppies and ‘lounge lizards’ during inclement weather, giving them an opportunity to play from dawn to dusk, come rain, sleet or snow.
Daily rates are all inclusive; there is no additional charge for daily play times in the morning and afternoon.
Single dog: $28.00 per day (Puppies under the age of 20 weeks: $35.00 per day)
Two dogs: $45.00 per day
Three dogs: $60.00 per day
An additional $4.00 fee will be assessed daily for medications administered. Any holistic remedies, prescription medications, over the counter drugs such as Benadry and/or power or pill supplements are consider a medication and will require owner’s written permission for us to administer.
Under PAFCA law, we are not allowed to accept any medications if they are not in their original container with directions clearly stated on prescribed medications by the vet or written directions by the owner on non-prescription medications.
The rate per day begins upon the day of check in. If pets are picked up by the end of morning check out times, there is no charge for your final boarding day. If you choose to check out in the afternoon, your check out day is billed as a boarding day.
Open Door Policy
If you would like to take your pet with you off site during his or her overnight stay, Linda’s Pet Care Services offers an “Open Door” policy, Tuesday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and again from 1 to 4 pm.
You may pick up and drop off your pet during these hours for visits to the local dog park, hiking trails or a happy reunion and car ride thrown in for good measure.
(This option is not available on weekends.)
What to Bring to Overnight Camp
A copy of your pet’s vaccination records showing dates given for Rabies, Distemper and Bordatella. All dogs over the age of one must be spayed or neutered.
Please check with your veterinarian to be sure your pet is current on bordatella since it is not a vaccination your vet typically administers unless you request it. All vaccines, if not current, must be administered at least 7 days prior to your pet’s visit in order for your pet to stay with us.
Your pet’s food bowl
Your pet’s food (please bring food in an hard, airtight container–no bags or baggies allowed) and the scoop you use to measure.
Attach feeding instructions (how much you feed and how often) to the container so that we can be sure to keep your dog on his daily regime. (We can accommodate any type of diet, including canned and refrigerated items.)
A collar (fitted snugly around your dog’s neck)
Your pet’s bed or something that smells of home like a pillow case, sweatshirt, blanket, etc.
Any stuffed toys, tennis balls or anything else that trips your guy’s trigger!
Treats, Kongs, peanut butter, yogurt, etc. (All edible treats MUST be placed in an airtight container that snaps with a lid. No bags or baggies. If the treats are not in a container, we cannot accept them.)
Please write your name on all belongings that are of value to you or your furry friend.
Gentle Leader (if applicable, please feel free to bring)
Medications (if applicable) Please keep your medications in their original container from your pharmacy with updated Rx information clearly readable.
We require the first three days of your reservation to be paid in full prior to your arrival. A 50% deposit is required on all reservations for more than three days. Deposits will be applied toward the balance of boarding upon check out. We have a 30 day cancellation policy ; a full 30 days notice is required in order to receive a refund of your deposit. If a dog is deemed unsuitable for our play yard, we will terminate service, if necessary. There are no refunds for dates booked prior to termination.
