Drop your dog off on the way to work for the day. The dogs are given a personality assessment and placed into one of our outside or inside areas. Dogs are supervised to make sure they play well together. Don’t be surprised if your dog may not want to go home after romping and chasing with their new friends. Remember a well exercised dog is a healthy and a happy dog.

What happens if my pet gets injured or sick at your facility?
In the case of an illness or injury, we will make every attempt to contact you or your emergency contact. In the event that no contact can be made, Tail Topia will assume the role and seek veterinary attention. We reserve the right to choose the veterinary clinic of our choice, we will always try your veterinarian first. In this case, all veterinary costs incurred will be the responsibility of the owner and a nominal veterinary transport fee will also be applied.
My dog is not fixed. Can they still come to your facility?
Tail Topia does not require your pet be spayed or neutered prior to boarding. However they would have to stay in his/ her suite during their stay and have individual outdoor supervised playtime for a additional charge.
What if my dog is on medication?
We can give vitamins, pills, topical and insulin medications as specified. Please make sure all medication is clearly labeled and dosage instructions are included. There is no additional fee for medicine directly added to their food. All injectable or topical medications will be an additional .50 cents per administration.
Can I call to check on my pet?
Absolutely! Please call during our business hours of 7am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday, and 12pm -6pm on Sundays to get an update on your pet. You may also write us an email to check-in, but realize that email is not the fastest way to get information, as we generally only check in once a day. We will also send you pictures of your pet while you are away if you choose. We are also working on getting a video system to allow you to sign in and view your pet while you are away.
