Low-Stress Dog Boarding in Chesterfield & St. Charles
Our low-stress dog boarding facilities are designed with pets’ needs in mind. Whether your pup is splashing through the play yards, snuggling with their favorite staff member, or snoozing in their private room, their comfort and well-being are our top priorities.
We know you’ll miss your pup while you’re away. Don’t worry! While your dog is boarding with us, we’ll send you Pupdates with photos and videos of all the fun they’re having. Plus, we’ll call you if we think they need a change to their schedule or setup. Want even more peace of mind? Ask about a Webcam Pupgrade so you can check on your dog from anywhere in the world!

How we keep your dog enriched
At Petropolis, we go beyond comfort. We want your pup to be enriched and engaged while they’re with us. Here’s how we keep our boarding space fun and low-stress:
- Separate boarding bays keep noise levels down
- Spacious rooms with cozy bedding feel like home
- Soft music creates a relaxing atmosphere
- Daily enrichment cuts down on excess energy
- One-on-one interaction with our team keeps pups calm and happy
Play, relax, repeat
Even rambunctious dogs need 12 to 14 hours of sleep every day. Our dog boarding environment offers plenty of opportunities for your pup to catch an afternoon nap in the sunshine or in their private room. At night, all pups return to their rooms for dinner and the post-daycare crash (or, as we like to call it, the #PetropolisPassout).
Your dog is the boss at Petropolis. We’ll never force them to do anything they’re uncomfortable with, and we’ll adjust their activity schedule and room setup to fit their needs. And of course we’ll keep you updated on any changes we make during their stay.
Dog boarding rooms
No matter which location you choose, your pup will get to stay in a private room with plenty of space to stretch out and relax.
In Chesterfield, our standard dog boarding rooms are large enough for sibling pups to room together. Our upgraded “villas” are located in a separate, quieter lodging bay and come equipped with 24/7 webcams.
In St. Charles, our standard rooms are large enough for multiple dogs and are divided into smaller bays to reduce noise and stress. Our upgraded rooms are 120 square feet and perfect for large families or pups who need extra privacy.
