Boarding

Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare  Kensington offer the healthiest and the most natural dog boarding environment for your pet.  Dogs are social creatures and have a  pack drive. Dogs love being with people and other dogs.  With our “dog pack, boarding concept” your dog will enjoy human companionship as well as dog companionship.! Their “pack” is made up of humans and canines just as it is in life.  Your dog’s social skills will develop the more they board at Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare (whereas in kennels dogs don’t get to interact with one another, and social skills will not as sharpened).

The physical exercise while dog boarding occurs naturally during the course of dogs playing, jumping, keep away, king of the hill, “you can’t see me”,  and playing chase with each other.  Dog boarding at Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare Kensington means your dog will be mentally and physically stimulated through their play with other dogs, and a variety of obstacles we have in their play areas.  Our dog play areas for our dog boarding clients are divided by size for their safety and comfort, and we also can set up areas based on temperament.

At Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare Kensington we feed our boarding dogs in crates for several reasons: to ensure they eat only their food (some dogs have allergies and are on restricted diets), to ensure there are no food fights/food aggression. we believe in allowing  90 minutes for eating and digestion ( again this practice is safety-driven for your dog) to avoid upset stomachs and bloat.  When we put the dogs to bed at night they sleep in crates that are appropriately sized for them with water available to them.  The reason for the crates is because it goes back to dogs living in dens to eat and to rest, the natural den instinct.

So if you have a fun-filled vacation planned for your family, make sure you have a natural fun-filled vacation for your dog at Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare Kensington.  You can relax on your vacation knowing you have chosen the best and most fun place for your dog’s vacation.  Best of all you will be able to watch your dog having a fun time via our webcams.

We require a nonrefundable boarding deposit to reserve your space for boarding. At the time of booking, you will be charged a $50.00 per dog non-refundable boarding deposit.  If you have a change of plans and need to cancel this boarding visit, please remember we require at least  7 days prior to arrival date or you forfeit the non-refundable boarding deposit of $50.00 per dog per reservation. If you cancel a minimum of 7 days prior to the start of the reservation, your deposit will remain on file to be used for services at Blue Dog Boarding and Daycare.

We do recommend you bring your food that your dog has been used to their own food, it is kinder to their stomach not to change their diet when they board. Food or meds must be individually bagged with full name on each meal or medicine.  There will be  $2.00 per bag per meal charged if you chose not to bring it bagged and labeled.
