Dog Boarding in Oakland and Alameda California

We offer overnight boarding in our home where your furry pal is treated like a member of the family! We feed your pet per your instructions, give any medications they require, and provide all of the love and caring we give our own pets! If your buddy is a finicky eater we are more than happy to work with their diet and will do our best to cater to their tummies.

We don’t use kennels or crates unless you request it as part of your pet’s routine. At night they have the option of sleeping in any number of dog beds or if they want they can even snuggle in our bed with us!

We want your furry friend to be happy and comfortable in our home! We understand that pets miss their people so we go out of our way to make them feel welcome by giving them extra attention, love, and many cuddles! In a word, we spoil them! We do daily visits to a park, take an extra walk in the evening, and they get to run around in the urban sprawl that is our fenced-in backyard.

We know it’s difficult to leave your best friend but you can rest easy knowing your pet is being cared for just like at home.

Drop-In Visits

Going on vacation? Not to worry, your smaller furry or feathered friends will be well cared for. We offer drop-in visits to households with multiple pets such as a collection of cats, rodents, and birds. We will handle care for your rodents or birds making sure their cages or tanks are clean, and that they have fresh food, hay or alfalfa, and water. Cats will be fed, their litter box cleaned, the surrounding area tidied up, and if they are willing; a belly rub! If you just have cats please do see our section on cat care.

Sorry, at this time we don’t offer these services for fish, insects, reptiles, or amphibians.

Attention to Detail

Whether you’re boarding with us or just doing drop-in visits, while you are out of town we can also keep an eye on your house; changing lights and shades, watering plants, collecting mail or newspapers and generally leaving the house with an “at-home” appearance. Please let us know your preferences for this in our initial meeting!
