Dog Boarding

SportsVet’s boarding facility features new, solid-walled runs with glass doors, raised orthopedic beds, and a fenced outdoor play area for walks. SportsVet also offers the option of standard runs or luxury suites to maximize your pet’s comfort during their stay.


Standard Run: Includes a 4’ x 6’ room with solid walls and glass door, raised orthopedic bed, 3-4 walks outside per day by one of our trained staff. $40.00 per night.

Luxury Suite: Includes a 6’ x 6’ room with solid walls and glass door, raised orthopedic bed, window, television playing Animal Planet, 3-4 walks outside per day. $51.00 per night.

For families boarding more than 1 pet in the same run/room, a discount of up to 30% will be applied to the additional pet’s boarding fees.

Drop-Off/ Pick-Up

To allow our housekeeping staff ample time to properly sanitize and prepare each room for arrivals, standard check-in time begins at 12:00 pm. (SportsVet will make efforts to accommodate early check-ins as needed, but it cannot be guaranteed). Check-out is before 1:00 pm each day.

Drop-offs should be here no later than 5:45pm to allow for check-in before 6 pm close.

Saturday: Pick and drop off anytime between 8 and 12 noon.

Sunday: Pick up between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

Please allow at least 10 minutes for check-in to fill out a detailed admission form at each drop-off.

If anyone other than the owner will be picking up your pet, please alert SportsVet prior to pick-up and make sure they can provide a valid photo ID.

Due to safety and sanitary limitations, we cannot accept any personal belongings (i.e. beds, blankets, etc). SportsVet will provide all the necessary bedding to keep your pet comfortable.

Rawhides, bully sticks, and other consumable bones are not permitted as they pose a choking hazard.

All canine guests are served Purina EN to decrease GI problems your pet may have while boarding. If you prefer to bring food from home, please prepare each meal in the appropriate serving size in separate Ziploc bags, and write your last name on the labeling section. We cannot accept large bags or containers of food.

SportsVet will provide a qualified staff member to administer oral and/or topical medications for an additional fee of $8. Guests requiring specialized care are handled on a case-by-case basis and should be planned prior to drop-off. All medications must be provided by the owner and clearly labeled with written instructions, the pet’s name, type of medication, reason for medication, dosage, and administration schedule.


All dogs participating in boarding are required to be on monthly Heartworm Prevention and Flea Prevention. Monthly Tick Prevention is strongly recommended but not required. All forms of prevention must be purchased through a licensed veterinarian. In addition, all pets will be given a dose of Capstar flea control upon entering the facility, which includes a $5.00 fee applied to the boarding fee at pick-up.

Note: If your pet is carrying a heavy infestation of fleas upon check-in, long-term treatment (i.e. Vectra) will be administered to your pet in addition to Capstar for an additional fee.

The following vaccines are required to be up to date and administered a minimum of 10 days prior to your pet’s stay:

Rabies (1 or 3 year)

DA2PP (1 year)/DAP (3 year): Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza,


Bordetella (“Kennel Cough”): Administered once every 12 months

Canine Flu H3N8 and H3N2: SportsVet offers a combo vaccine that covers both strains. Pets receiving their first treatment will need a booster vaccination after 3-4 weeks.

The following lab tests are required to be performed on a yearly basis. Please note that test results must be negative for parasites.
