Charleston’s Exceptional Choice in Dog Boarding

Our lodging services are exclusive to alumni of our signature training and/or socialization programs. We are currently enrolling dogs of all ages in our training programs and dogs under 9 months may also qualify for our socialization program. Our programs require at least a 4-6 week commitment. You can find out more information and submit a request for a discovery session here. 

Our outdoor space is just the right size for your dog to have a blast while playing with our professional staff. After a hard day of group or individual play, our dog boarding guests are safe in our clean and comfy retreat. Each dog has their own personal room in which to rest. Additionally, all guests receive fresh bedding, gourmet treats and elimination breaks. Comforting music and aromatherapy soothe them as they relax. All dogs have fresh water available at all times and receive nightly tuck-in service.

Best Friends of all Sizes!

Enrichment Activity vs. Activity

Activities are fun physical play times that involve one-on-one time with a pet care technician or small group play, as temperament allows. They can also include cuddle time, stretching and walks for our guests that need more gentle activities.

Enrichment activities take this to another level and involve various stages of mental work on top of the physical fun.
