Dog Boarding

Cage-less 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.
  • Open-door crates if your dog wants some alone time.
  • Supervised by our Dog Care Attendants.
  • Socialization with other dogs.
  • Being fed with our food (Purina Pro Plan) or yours (with your instructions).

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

First Time at Dog Pawz?

If this is your first visit to Dog Pawz, you will need call your store location to schedule your free-trial assessment day. Free-trial assessment 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 assessment 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, DHLPPC, and Bordetella (every 6 months) are required for your dog to stay with us.

We have Doggie Cams at the Historic Leawood/Prairie Village and Westport/West Plaza locations. Simply request a login and password when you check in and use your smartphone to check in on your family members whenever you want.

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!
