About our services

Daycare/Boarding: A typical stay at Down-to-Earth Dogs includes regular outings, pawsitive reinforcement training, structured play, meal times suited to your dogs needs, and much needed rest time. We’ll even send pictures to your email or phone with every visit, so you can see your what your dog is up to. When you pick up your dog, you can rest assured that he’s had a fun-filled; action packed stay and perhaps even learned a trick or two!

Small Group Outings: What could be more fun for your dog than an outing with his best friends? If your dog has a lot of energy or just likes to get out and be social, our group outings are just what he needs. Typical outings include trips to Fiesta Island or Mission Trails for some hiking. Outings last for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours between the hours of 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. We’ll pick him up and drop him off when we’re done.

What to expect

Requirements For Boarding

Guest dogs must come for an initial visit to Down-to-Earth Dogs prior to their first overnight stay. In the best interest of your dog, we strongly recommend leaving them for at least one overnight visit or daycare before leaving for any extended period of time. This allows your dog to become relaxed and familiar with the new environment and helps ensure a stress-free experience.

Vaccination Requirements

All dogs must be in good health and up to date on Vaccinations: Rabies and DHPP. Titer test results are also accepted. All dogs must be on some form of flea/tick prevention. Dogs over 6 months must be spayed/neutered.

Cancellation Policy

We require advance notice of cancellations as follows: 48 hours for a non-holiday reservation: 7 days notice for any holiday reservation. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking for all Holiday reservations. Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween
