Dog Boarding


While your dog is staying with us, we want to mirror your dog’s home life as much as possible. For us this means:

  • Enough room to play and sleep.
  • Outdoor, fresh-air walks several times a day.
  • Clean floors and beds.
  • Supervised by our Dog Care Attendants.
  • Socialization with other dogs.
  • Being fed with our food (Hill's Science Diet) or yours (with your instructions).

We provide webcam access to all of our clients so that they can check in on their happy pets.

If this is your first visit to Dog Pawz, you will need call your store location to schedule your Meet and Greet day. Meet and Greet days can be scheduled for Monday – Thursday. Once we have entered your information into our system, you will have access to your online account and will be able to book daycare and boarding reservations online, as well as camera access.

Please bring in a copy of your pup's updated shot records (Rabies 1 year/Distemper 1 year/Bordetella 6 months) on your Meet and Greet day.

All pups must have a leather, nylon, or canvas collar on upon arrival. For safety reasons, please remove metal pinch collars, chain collars, spike collars, electric fence collars and harnesses. Dog Pawz is not responsible for damaged collars or flea collars.

For first-timers, we have a “New Dog Introduction Procedure”. We place your dog in a small area next to their designated play area so they can get use to the smells and sounds. Depending on the dog and the breed, the introduction period varies. We have found this technique helps with new anxiety jitters.

We also encourage half-day play days so your dog can get used to staying with us before they stay for an extended period of time. During this time, we are able to better understand your dog’s behavior and tendencies – making everyone comfortable and your dog’s stay with us safer.

Spay/Neuter Policy: We require dogs over 6 months of age to be spayed or neutered.

Required Vaccinations: Written proof from your veterinarian of current Rabies, DHPP, Canine Influenza, and Bordetella (every 6 months) are required for your dog to stay with us. If your dog needs any of the required vaccines in this list, our vet would be happy to administer them here. Dog Pawz is a one-stop-shop for your pet's needs!


We have Doggie Cams at our Leawood/Prairie Village location. Simply request a login and password when you check in and use your smartphone to check in on your family members whenever you want.

You may be asking – why is my pup resting and not outside with all their furry friends? Routine rest time during daycare is not only important to the health of your pet, but also for the safety of the entire pack. Resting refers to the downtime in between playtimes during daycare. This gives your pet a chance to recuperate so they do not exhaust themselves before their visit comes to an end, which is especially important for our full-day guests. Additionally, resting significantly decreases the chances of injuries within the pack. Just like with humans, rest allows for the microtears in their muscles from exercising to repair and become stronger.

We take the safety of our pets and staff very seriously. Resting is an important part of our safety guidelines, including temperament tests and dividing our daycare pups into playgroups based on this temperament and size.

Medication & Food Policies

We are happy to administer oral or topical medications or supplements to your pets! Medication must be in the original prescribed container with the prescription label adhered.

Please bring enough food for the duration of your pet's boarding stay. You must provide individual prepackaged containers or Ziplock bags with your pet’s name and food measured by meal or a meal packaging fee of $3 per day (max of $15 per boarding stay) will be applied to your pet’s invoice. Canned food and meal toppers are accepted in their original container, but must be labeled with your pet's name.



The longest I’ve left Foxy was for 6 nights/7 days and there was not an issue the entire time. Everything was perfect & I picked her up happy & freshly bathed with her free bath… The staff was friendly & calm, thorough in setting up the appointment and excited to meet Foxy!
