What does my dog need for boarding?

Not sure what to pack for your pup? We’ve got you covered! Read on for a list of what your dog needs for boarding, or check out our complete Dog Boarding Checklist (complete with vaccine requirements, contact info, and more!)

What Your Dog Needs For Boarding


We suggest packing the same food your dog usually eats at home. It’s also best to pack their food in pre-measured portions. That way, you know your pet has enough food for their stay and our team can easily feed them the correct amount at each meal.


If your dog requires medication, make sure to pack it in its original packaging. This way, our team will have the prescription and dosage information at their fingertips.


Don’t forget your pup’s favorite toys! Avoid anything you know your dog will tear up, rope toys, and rawhide (opt for a safer natural chew, like an antler!). Pack one or two toys to keep your dog occupied when they’re in their room for the night.


Some boarding facilities provide bedding (like ours!), but it’s still a good idea to pack a bed, blanket, or pillow that smells like home. Even one of your t-shirts will do! A familiar object with your scent on it will help your pup get comfortable in their room.

Still have questions before your dog’s stay? Give us a call at (636)537-2322. We’ll gladly answer any questions you may have about your pet’s reservation.
