Our doors are open 5:00 AM to 11:00 PM - every day of the week!

If you plan on arriving between 11 PM and 5 AM, no problem - simply call us to schedule your pick up or drop off by appointment and one of our night attendants will meet you at the door.


Here's what's included

Private Bedroom – Your dog will have its own private bedroom that is used for sleeping at night, and mealtime. We provide comfy bedding, but please feel free to bring any of your dog’s comforts from home (a blanket or their dog bed).

Mouth-Watering Meals – We will feed your dog wholesome, mouth-watering meals, or better yet, we will feed them their own food, to keep them on a diet they are used to. Please let us know if you would like your dog to eat lunches as well. (Dogs expend much more energy at Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resort than they normally do; we encourage extra helpings of food during breakfast and dinner if you don’t want them to lose any weight!)

Supplements/Medications/Special Diets/Special Attention – At Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resort we realize each pet has special needs, whether it is diet, medications, an extra walk, or just some added playtime or love. We feel compassionately compelled to give you any or all of these services. Contact us to learn more about the service and pricing.

All Day Play – Each dog wakes up in their private bedroom at 6 AM and is promptly served the breakfast of your choice. Now starts their day of fun, where dogs will enjoy the fresh air in our oasis, which features various climbing structures, and plenty of space to run, chase, climb, and nap! At the end of the day we start to wind down and bring each dog to their private bedroom when we serve dinner between 4-5 PM, and then bring them back out for more play till 7 PM. One last potty break at 8 PM and at 9 PM all dogs return to their private bedroom for some much-needed rest. Our 24-hour staff checks on the dogs throughout the night and attends to any restless dogs.



Any Dog, Any Size.

Here at Dr. Boyd’s your pets’ health, safety, comfort, and happiness is our #1 priority. To ensure that your pet receives the best care we can provide, please take the time to read the following so that together we can make your pets’ visit a positive experience.



In order to have fun, each pet is required to be current on his/her vaccinations and fecal test. However, if your pet is not current on his or her vaccines, please schedule for them to be vaccinated beforehand or the day of. For any pet receiving a fecal test during the reservation, we will need to receive a negative result before allowing them into the yard. Be sure to have these requirements done prior to your reservation.

Vaccination and fecal requirements:

  • Distemper and Parvo Vaccine
  • Rabies Vaccine
  • Canine Influenza Vaccine
  • Leptospirosis Vaccine
  • Bordetella (every 6 months)
  • Fecal Ova/Parasite with Giardia Elisa (every 6 months)



For the safety and comfort of your pet, please refrain from bringing oversized bedding containing fillers such as foam, Styrofoam, batting, and other synthetic materials. Please keep in mind the larger the bedding, the less space you are providing your pet in its boarding area.

Please feel free to provide blankets or flat fleece mats that will provide comfort, are easy to launder, and provide more personal space for your pets’ sleeping area. We are happy to provide our bedding for your pet's visit free of charge if needed.



If your pet requires medication or prescription food for its visit:

  • Ensure that you have included enough medicine and prescription food for the entire length of your pets stay
  • All medication in the original bottles with clear instructions
  • Do not put in pre-portioned meals unless it is a powder, such as a probiotic or digestive enzyme

We cannot legally dispense medication prescribed by an outside veterinarian, nor do we carry an assortment of prescription diets for sale. We strongly encourage clients to provide us with pre-portioned amounts of food to ensure your pet receives the correct amount for each feeding.

Please limit the amount of personal property you provide for your pet to 3 items. This does not include food, treats, or medication. We suggest you bring your pets’ favorite blanket, toy, and 1 item that contains your scent ( like a worn T-shirt). These types of items will provide your pet with some of the comforts of home and help reduce any stress or anxiety they may feel. For the health and safety of your pets, we provide stainless steel water and food bowls, so it is not necessary to bring your own.



We ask that all food is proportioned per meal for the reservation. No food is to be stored at the resort outside of your reservation or daycare dates or a storage fee will be applied daily.



Our play yards provide ample space for dogs to socialize and play for up to 12 hours a day, whether they are here for daycare or boarding. Each yard hosts a playgroup of socially compatible dogs who have been evaluated on the basis of age, size, and temperament.

For dogs that require special attention for any reason, we offer the Play Time Cycle. Dr. Boyd’s facilities provide additional yards for the staff to customize play, whether for one-on-one playtime with our handlers or for specialized, small playgroups. Every dog who is a part of our Play Time Cycle is offered a unique experience that allows for mental and physical stimulation, with periodic breaks to rest and recover.

In all of the play yards, our staff provides direct supervision at all times. The social interaction and exercise will find your dog tired and fulfilled at the end of every day!



We at Dr. Boyd’s understand the need of 24-hour care and convenience for our service men and women and first responders: military or veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, doctors, EMT’s or nurses. We offer a 10% discount on all of our services and we are happy to waive extended care fees on daycare.
