Before their stay at AlphaDog Lodging, all dogs participate in a 4 hour temperament assessment. An outdoor environment is great for most socialized dogs, but some are more comfortable with a different kind of play!

  • Copies of up to date vaccinations are required (DHPP (or some variant), Rabies, Bordatella, and Canine Influenza) before your dog's first visit. We also require documentation of regular flea & tick treatment as well as a negative fecal test testing for Giardia & OVA Parasites from within the last six months. These protocols help protect every pup in our care!
  • Puppies must be at least 4 months old and have required vaccinations. Please inquire for more information.
  • If a dog has been diagnosed with a communicable disease (i.e., Giardia or Kennel cough), or has a recent injury/surgery AlphaDog Lodging will require veterinary documentation clearing them for play. AlphaDog reserves the right to make the final decision as to whether or not a dog is permitted to visit and join in on group play.
  • We are now taking intact dogs under 18 months/1.5 years of age! Please inquire via email (dogs@alphadoglodging.com) and/or read our FAQ for more information.
  • When coming to AlphaDog Lodging, each dog should wear a properly fitted, buckle collar with a name tag. We remove all harnesses, pinch collars, martingale collars, and so on. For everyone's safety, all dogs must also be on a leash when entering/exiting the facility.
  • We are following all current county guidelines for COVID here at AlphaDog. Masking is, at this time, optional for clients.

Reservations are needed to ensure space for Boarding and for Daycare during holidays and peak seasons. Minimum stay and prepayment will apply during certain peak holiday periods. See our Rates & Hours page for more information.
