People Tested, Dog Approved!

Boarding

Going on a long trip? Leave your dog with us! Your dog will get up to 10 hours of play every day you're away, and you can watch them on our webcams from anywhere.

When USD 383 schools are closed (due to inclement weather), Howl-A-Dayz is closed for daycare. However, we are still open for boarding clients 9AM to Noon and 4PM to 6PM!

How to Get Started:

The first step to getting your dog a reservation is to call and schedule a temperament evaluation. We require every dog that comes to undergo a two hour screening to ensure everyone at Howl-A-Dayz a safe visit! We schedule these Monday through Saturday starting at 10AM or 2PM. Please be prepared to provide the following:

  • Proof of Current Vaccinations
    • Influenza - (Beginning January 1st, 2014)
      Dog flu is a contagious respiratory disease in dogs caused by a specific Type A influenza virus referred to as a “canine influenza virus.” This is a disease of dogs, not of humans. (More Info)
    • Bordatella - (Required Annually)
      This vaccination helps prevent your dog from catching Kennel Cough, although it DOES NOT guarantee it. This is relatively common in kennel environments and is especially important for very young and very old dogs. (More Info)
    • Rabies - (Required Every 1, 2, or 3 Years)
      This vaccination is also required by the city to help keep your dog from catching rabies from any other animal it may come in contact with. Your vet can provide vaccines that don't expire for up to three years. (More Info)
    • Distemper/Parvo - (Required Every 1, 2, or 3 Years)
      These vaccines are usually part of a multivaccine that protect against distemper, parvo, caronavirus and many others. It will most likely be listed as DA2PP or DHPP on your vet records. (More Info)
    • Spay/Neuter - (Required If Over 1 Year Old)
      This is usually apparent from the dog information section of your records. Under the listing for Sex, a spay will show as Sex: S Female and a neuter will show as Sex: N Male. It is important to note that we do not need your dog's entire medical history, just our required portions and anything else you believe we should be aware of.
    • Other - Not Required
      Your vet may give you options for additional vaccinations. We highly recomend the 6mo Bordatella vaccine and the Canine Influenza vaccine. It's always best to follow the recommendations of your veterinarian!
  • Registration Forms
  • Client Contract Agreement
  • $10 enrollment fee

After your dog(s) pass the temperament evaluation, you are free to schedule reservations for boarding or daycare at any time! Weekends and Holidays fill up quickly so try to schedule a week in advance (more for holidays) when possible.

What to Bring When Boarding:

  • Treats/Chews as needed
  • Dog beds, blankets, or towels
  • Toys for use in kennel
  • Medications if needed ($1 fee per day)
  • Boarding Form

We provide each dog with clean bowls every day, our own fabric bedding (towels/blankets) with your permission, and you can opt to use our Exclusive Lamb and Rice food for an additional $2 a day.

What will my dog's day look like?

Our boarders get a lot of playtime! Mon-Fri staff arrives at 6:45 to let everyone out of their kennels. They have free time to play until 11:30 when they are kenelled for lunch. At 12:45 they are let back out into the play area until 4pm when they are kenelled for dinner. When they're all finished eating, they're let out for their last potty break and more play time until 5:45.
