Need to Know

Sleepydog Kennel has been providing doggie daycare, boarding, and other pet care services to pets and their owners since 2010. While we are skilled professionals, we like to think of Sleepydogs coming to Grandma's house rather than to school!


Monday-Friday              630AM-630PM

Weekends & holidays  9-11AM & 4-6PM

Our goal is to provide a fun and safe environment for all of our guests.  To do that, we ask that all of our patrons abide by the following rules:  


Age: We love puppies!  We are happy to watch your puppy once he or she has completed the first two series of distemper/parvo treatments.  Talk to your vet but this is usually by 10-12 weeks old.


Vaccinations & requirements: 



•Bordetella (kennel cough)

•Negative fecal result

•flea free  

•A quick-release collar to prevent injury to your dog  

•no conditions that pose a health risk to other sleepydogs or members of staff

  • no history of aggression towards humans or excessive aggression towards other animals


We will confirm vaccination information with your vet.  

What to expect from a doggie daycare/boarding enviroment:

We at Sleepydog Kennel like to say that Sleepydog is more than just a name, it's a promise.  Your dog will spend a lot of time running and playing with other dogs. This is much more mentally and physically stimulating than staying at home alone, and you can expect a calm and sleepy dog at pick up time.  We also strive to provide your dog with lots of attention and human interaction.  We want to be your dog's second home, a place where they feel loved and YOU feel confident about their well being.


However, as in all situations where dogs (and humans) come into contact with the same, there is a risk of harm.  Sleepydogs play HARD and with full contact.  While they are closely supervised, injuries do occur.  In addition, germs are EASILY passed from dog to dog.  Required vaccinations prevent the most serious illnesses, but dogs are not immune to catching colds, stomach upsets, or other maladies.  Our rigorous sanitization processes help to mitigate these illnesses, but they still do occur.  This is especially true with dogs that have weak immune systems, such as the very young or very old, and those that have not previously been exposed to a lot of dogs.  Please speak to a member of our staff if you have questions or concerns about this issue.
