Comfortable Boarding

We are happy to provide your pet with a home away from home while you are traveling. We welcome any breed to enjoy our yard, kennel, and thoughtful care.

Boarding Requirements

At Academy Boarding Kennels & Grooming Salon, we want to ensure all animals’ safety with several requirements. We only accept healthy pets to be boarded at our facility and are no longer able to board pets on insulin. To enhance transparency, we require contact numbers for each trip. Also, we will only release pets to their owners unless previous arrangements are made.


We require several vaccines for our furry guests to promote the safety of our facility. The rabies vaccination is required for both canine and feline guests.

Dogs must have a current combination DA2PP vaccine, either a one-year or a three-year, and a Bordetella vaccine. We do accept titers for DA2PP, and they must be between the acceptable limits. Cats are required to have a current FVRCP vaccine vaccination.

If you choose or need to update your pet’s vaccinations before an expected stay with us, you must do that ten days before your pet’s visit. If you email over your current vaccination papers, please include your scheduled check-in date on your receipt.

Fleas & Ticks

Please inform us if your pet has been exposed to or has any fleas or ticks, so we can take necessary precautions and not allow them near our other borders. If any pet is observed as having fleas or ticks, we will give them a mandatory flea and tick bath, and the charge will be added to your bill.


We do not accept any bedding from owners in our facility to decrease the possibility of any fleas or ticks entering the kennel. We provide cots and blankets to all of our guests.

Personal Items Policy

As a convenience to our clients, you are welcome to bring toys for your pets. We only allow blankets or beds that can be easily washed. We have a large supply of blankets, beds and cots available at no additional charge. 

Our staff will do their best to return all blankets, bedding and toys to you. However, we are not responsible for replacing any lost or damaged personal items during your pets stay. 

Thank you for your understanding.
