Find yourself feeling guilty for taking that weekend trip with your besties because you HATE the idea of leaving your fur baby? That's where we come in! 

THE J. TAILS BOARDING EXPERIENCE

All dogs that board with us are asked to come in for a temperament test. Why? This helps ensure that this is the best place for your dog AND that they acclimate with the environment and humans before spending the night. This helps them be their most comfortable with us for their overnight visits. 

HOW IT WORKS

get started

Leave the barter system behind and experience the reliable care of J.Tails. Made for your convenience to provide your pets with the best care.

Leave your worries behind when you choose J.Tails for your dog to stay with on your vacation. Well, all except one worry, that your dog will never want to leave.

Want to know a secret? Your dog isn’t going to miss you. Well not as much as you miss them. Their day is filled with human affection, playful romps with other pups and enriching activities. Feel like they never left your side with our live webcams and daily report cards.

Running out of favors from your family and friends to come let your dogs out? 

*Dogs over 7 months of age must be neutered and up to date on Rabies, Bordetella and DAPP.

Bring your pup at your selected time for their first day. We will text you half way through to let you know how they are doing. Follow along with their day on our live webcams or catch a glimpse of them on our social media.

HOW DID IT GO?

READY TO TRY US OUT?

No dog left behind means that when your dog stays overnight with us it INCLUDES that they will spend their day in group play. That snuggles are never extras and pictures and live webcams are at your fingertips. You won't see a luxury suite with TV’s at J.Tails. What you will see is enrichment activities to keep their brain working, and positive reinforcement that comes in the form of treats and praises.

Most of all, you will see a team of humans that will sit on the floor petting your dog and ensuring they feel loved.

Will my dog be kenneled?

Yes! We believe that kennels give dogs a safe space for rest. We have a few always open on the play floor for any dogs wanting a break. During nap time (12-2 pm), we put all dogs up in a kennel with the lights low and soft music. We use kennels that are size appropriate for the dog. If you prefer your dog to not be in a kennel, we do offer half days where dogs do not participate in nap times. 

What do weekends look like?

Your dog will participate in our Saturday daycare from 8 am - 1 pm, then to their house for a rest. A human will return at 5 pm for evening playtime and dinner. Sundays are the biggest day of rest to prep for the upcoming week. Your dog will head outside around 7:30 am for group play and potty and return to their house at 9 am for their breakfast. They have another group play/potty at ~1 pm for an hour. Their day ends with a group play session from 5 pm - 6 pm followed by dinner in their house.  
*Holidays- Group play/potty ~7:30-9:30 am, 1 pm -2 pm, 5pm - 6 pm.

M-F: 7 AM - 10 AM, 12 PM - 2 PM, 4:30 PM - 7 PM.
Sat: 8 AM - 10 AM, 12 PM - 1 PM, 5 PM - 6 PM
Sun: 8 AM - 9 AM, 5 PM - 6 PM
*Double check for holidays. No pick up or drop off on: Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Day. 

What are your available pickup and drop off times?

We will try our best to reach out to you. If we are unable to connect we will inform you of the next available pick up window. This could mean that your dog is set up in a size appropriate kennel overnight and depending on circumstances, extra charges will be incurred, including food and boarding. 

What happens if I miss pickup?

We do not have any humans who spend the night. All dogs are put in their houses with their food and water, a raised cot (with bedding if allowed) and any toys brought from home. Light ambient dog music is left on and all lights are turned off to help facilitate rest. Daycare can be a fun atmosphere but also tiring. We find that creating a cozy kennel where they can retreat alone provides the best reprieve after a fun filled day. 

Is there a person who spends the night?

FAQ'S

"He is actually excited to leave me in the morning when I drop him off! I know that he is loved and well taken care of when he is at daycare. Their package pricing is a great value, especially considering I get live camera access to him, photos, and a report card every day. 5-paw rating from us!"

My babies, Pixie and Maya, absolute love going to JTails!

 I moved here with my 2 year old pup in July from Chicago. J. Tails has become a part of my family when it comes to taking care of my dog. I honestly could not have done this without them! I use their daily dog walking services and just started some half day daycare. They are so responsive and truly care for my dog like their own. They have been so accommodating and flexible, which has made it so much less stressful for me knowing that my dog is in good hands. Thank you for all that you do!"
–Steely's Mom

I absolutely love J. Tails!
