Care requirements for Boarding

Poodles running

Make The Castle your local dog boarding headquarters and enjoy convenient pick-up and drop-off options, as well as our renowned standard of excellence when it comes to pet care. We work hard to ensure that every pet we take in is safe and comfortable, so ALL dogs must have the following treatments and immunizations:

  • Bordetella/Canine Cough
  • DHLPP (Distemper)
  • Rabies

During the months of March through December, flea and tick prevention (chemical, not collar) must also be provided. The minimum age for boarding is four months. We feed twice a day, morning and evening. We prefer you send your dog's food to the Castle so they remain on the same diet.  Food can be sent in large bags with detailed feeding instructions.
