 OVERNIGHTS (BOARDING) 

Our overnight services include all the benefits of daycare plus a comfy night with the overnight staff, sleeping wherever your dog is most comfortable. We try to accommodate as closely as possible what your dog is used to at home. For more information about overnights with us, please read our Customer Handbook.


Boarding Prices:
For our overnight guests, the charge is $28.00 ($33 for special needs dogs, see below**) per dog, per calendar day regardless of the time of day you drop off. 

  • 1 overnight is $50.00 per dog if picked up before 10am
  • 1 overnight is $56.00 per dog if picked up after 10am
  • Everyday thereafter is $28.00 per calendar day, per dog. If picked up prior to 10am on the last day of boarding, there will only be a half day charge for that day.


A non-refundable deposit of $50.00 per dog is required for each boarding booking and will be applied toward your total boarding invoice to be paid upon pick-up. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the total booking is required for each booking over 7 days and bookings on major holidays and school vacation weeks (see dates below). Bookings cannot be confirmed without this non-refundable deposit. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but due to an overwhelming amount of last minute cancellations and no-shows we cannot book any boarding stay without this prepayment. Deposits are completely non-refundable and cannot be returned for any reason.

A non-refundable 50% fee if booking is over 7 days or falls on/over holidays & school breaks:

  • Memorial Day – May 28th
  • 4th of July
  • Labor Day Sept 3rd
  • Thanksgiving Nov 22
  • Christmas Day Dec 25
  • New Year's Day Jan 1st 2019
  • School Break - Feb 18 – 25
  • School Break - Apr 14 - 22


Boarding Specifics:

  • All incoming overnight dogs should be dropped off prior to 12:00 noon unless specifically prearranged otherwise. We do this to ensure that your dog has had adequate time to expend some energy and get accustomed to being with us before ‘settle-down’ time after dinner. You may pick up your dog at any time during our open hours. Picking up your boarding dog prior to 10am (not 10:05 or later) will result in only a half day charge for that day.
  • Please bring your dog's own food to eat during their stay. It is much better for your dog's digestive system to remain on their own food. Switching foods quickly can result in all sorts of issues, especially stomach upset and diarrhea. 
  • We do not offer early drop-offs or late pick-ups. If a dog scheduled to go home is not picked up by 6:30pm, they will be considered an unscheduled boarding guest, fed the house kibble (if they do not have their own) and tucked in for the night. They can be picked up the following day and owners will be charged accordingly.
  • Please read our handbook for important detailed information


Boarding Cancellation Policy:
You may cancel you boarding booking at any time, however, boarding deposits cannot be returned for any reason. 
 
** Special Needs Dogs are those that require greater time, attention and care than average Coastal Dog guests:

  • Dogs requiring excessive medication administration (more than one medication daily, medication administered more than 2 times day, anything requiring injections, topical applications, bandaging, etc…)
  • Dogs requiring physical help to function normally (have trouble walking, getting up or needing to use ramps, braces or other aids)
  • Dogs that have behavioral issues and require more attention paid to them on a regular basis (extremely nervous or anxious​ dogs, dogs that are socially inappropriate, dogs that are destructive)
  • Dogs that mark indoors, are not fully house-trained or consistently defecate/urinate indoors during their stay
  • Dogs that have to sleep with overnight staff


If your dog is new to us, it may take some time to determine whether or not your dog is a special needs dog. In this case, fees may be adjusted accordingly. If you are unsure whether your dog falls into this category, please ask us!
