Need an overnight stay for your pup? We don’t charge an hourly rate after 24 hours nor do we have required check-in or out times! Bring your dog or puppy as early as 6:30am, bring their food, or purchase our college grub, and we will assign them a comfy dorm room. They can play all day, spend the night with other furry classmates, and play all day the following day as well— up to 36 hours for ONE overnight boarding fee.
