Boarding In Our Ballard Home

Boarding is Only Available to Regularly Scheduled Clients

We live in a townhouse in Ballard. It's a very dog-friendly environment and dogs are welcome to make themselves at home. However, we have crates and gated areas if needed. Boarding guests will be provided neighborhood walks during their stay with us. If there’s room, park adventure dogs can join the group on days they aren’t normally scheduled.  There are no park adventures on weekends.


Boarding Selection Criteria - Dogs must:

  • Be at least 6 months old

  • Be comfortable with our dogs

  • Be tolerant of children

  • Be potty trained

  • Not chew on furniture, walls, shoes etc. (if your dog is a chewer or destroys household items, they will be crated or gated in a safe area when left alone) Please let us know if your dog chews items when left alone so we can prevent it! You will be financially responsible for any and all destroyed household items

  • Not bark excessively - If your dog experiences separation distress or barks excessively for any reason please let us know. There are things we can do the help them feel more comfortable when left alone. If there is no resolution of excessive barking, we will not be able to board your dog.
