We know sometimes you have to leave your dog. We are happy to take care of your pup while you are away. Our boarding is open to current clients, by referral and if we have met your dog.
Your dog will be housed in a safe, warm, clean run and we will make sure they are well taken care of. You can choose to add on services like extra walks and playtime or even a full grooming before pick up. A basic bath is included but if it is shedding season, we can do a full groom.
We had an App made just for our clients to request boarding. Search VWK (Apple) or Von Waldberg (Android) , download the App and you can create a profile for your dog and upload feeding information and vaccination records. You can also scan our QR code below or access the web based version.
Once the request comes to us, we will verify that we have room and confirm your reservation. Proof of current vaccinations is required. We do not allow raw food diets in the boarding area unless they are pasteurized. And we request that your dog not be a fence climber and is comfortable with strangers.
ABOUT OUR BOARDING
Boarding was a very small part of our business 6 years ago. We offered it more as a favor for our clients. We know you want a safe and trusting environment to care for your dog when you leave town. Over the years, the demand for our boarding services has increased, and we have expanded our boarding facility to a maximum occupancy of 35 dogs. We are a boutique boarding facility because we are not as large as many commercial boarding facilities, but we have the employees to give careful love and care to your pet.
Our boarding facility is attached to our main office, so we have constant supervision over all of our boarding dogs. The building is fully enclosed, spray foam insulated and heated/cooled depending on the season. Each kennel space is 8x10 or larger. We cleaned the runs multiple times each day and we provide fresh water at least twice daily. We sanitize all walkways and empty kennel space daily. In-between occupancy of a kennel, every fence panel, doghouse, dog bed and water bowl are thoroughly sanitized.
Being on a secluded 9 acre property, we have endless paths to take your dog out for a walk for individual love and attention. If your dog loves playing off leash, we have fenced outdoor spaces and our 60’x100’ indoor training center.
We believe in transparency with you about your dog and our pricing. We have no hidden fees or surprises. Within our booking app, all prices are upfront and shared with you before you drop off your dog. We also do not have increased pricing for holidays, so a flat fee year round!
Our standard rate of boarding is $65 per night per dog. Included in this price is feeding your dog its own food 2 or 3 times a day based on its current meal schedule, daily cleaning, water and a basic bath and nail trim on the last day before they go home to you.
Optional add ons include off-leash play time, longer walks, feeding our kibble, medicating your pet and more thorough baths with coat blowouts. You can choose how many times you would like these additional services during your dog’s stay and pricing information is included in the app. We have a 3% credit/debit card fee. We also accept cash and checks with no additional fee.
We understand leaving your pet for 1 day or for a month+ is hard, so we want to make the process easy for you. We have an APP that you can download so you have an easy way of communicating with our entire team.
Please start with an inquiry showing your interest in boarding at our facility via phone of email. We can send you instructions to download our App and request a complimentary meet and greet. Our meet and greets are available 7 days a week when booked through the app. At this appointment, we can answer any new questions you may have, but most importantly, we will meet your dog and take them for a quick walk to see how they do with new people.
Once we have approved your dog after the meet and greet, you are welcome to book reservations for your pet through our app. The app also makes it easy for you to provide us with feeding/medication instructions, provide proof of vaccination status and to schedule optional activities for your dog.
Include information about your dog, when you are looking to have your first boarding night, as well as questions that we can answer for you. We will get back to you as quickly as possible, normally within 1 to 2 business days.
LARGE BREEDS, INTACT ADULTS AND ELDERLY DOGS
As a German Shepherd breeding kennel, we are used to handling large, intelligent dogs. We currently do not have any dog breed restrictions, but we reserve the right to not accept dogs on a case-by-case basis.
Based on the meet and greet as well as behavior during past stays, your dog may not be allowed to board with us. Our facility is secure, and we are comfortable and experienced with intact adults. We ask that if you know your dog is in heat or might go into heat that you let us know so we can house them away from other intact males.
We do not allow dogs with a history of aggressive behavior or dogs who are capable of climbing fences.
We are comfortable handling everything from tiny puppies to senior dogs. Our boarding kennels are heated in the winter and ventilated in the summer. Each dog has their own private space unless you request that your dogs be housed together. All dogs get an elevated dog bed and if you have an elderly dog we can work with you to ensure they receive the care they need.
