Dog Boarding At Taurus is Ruff!
"We LOVE Taurus! It’s wonderful to know our dog is well looked after and having such a blast when he boards or has a play date. We never worry about him for a second.” — Elizabeth with Dex
Taurus Dog Boarding Exceeds Expectations
At Taurus Dog Boarding your dog receives more than excellent care, he or she also Plays with a Purpose! Our pack members are extensively trained in safety and health, and many are First Aid and CPR certified. We exceed industry standards in cleaning and ventilation protocols, and have many systems in place to eliminate errors. Comfort is our priority, so we provide climate controlled kennels, blankets, water at all times, safe chew toys and bones, and generally do whatever it takes to make your Dog's Boarding experience happy and comfortable. Finally, the dogs play throughout the day! We are all dog trainers at Taurus, so your dog will be as safe as possible during playgroups, and will likely go home better behaved, as we work on polite behaviors throughout the day at Taurus. So that's why we can confidently say you will not be dissatisfied with our Dog Boarding Service at Taurus.
Before Boarding: Play Day Evaluations
All dogs must undergo a play day evaluation before boarding. This ensures that your pup will see Taurus as a safe, fun, happy place to stay and play. She or he will also have the experience of you coming for her at the end of the day. Our goal is ultimate comfort and minimum stress for the dogs in our care. Please contact the facility of your choice to schedule an evaluation day. Several facilities schedule these on specific days, in order to give our newer friends the maximum time and attention possible, so please schedule at least a couple of weeks in advance of your preferred boarding date.
Daily Activities: What to Expect
The pups are out for an initial potty break and then are fed about 6:30-7. The dogs then play in rotating groups throughout the day, resting in their comfy kennels during naptime and at night. We feed between 5-6 p.m., with a rest after dinner, then final play before going to bed about 9 p.m. We pass out comfy blankets and chew toys (please, allow us to provide all blankets and toys. We only allow the safest toys and bones, and sanitize all bedding daily, so we cannot take your toys and blankets as they may not be used, or lost in the laundry.) The radio is left on a soothing station, and a pack member peeks in on the dogs every night around midnight, in case a young pup needs another potty break. Usually they are tired from a long day of play and sleep through until morning, when the fun starts over again!
There is no extra charge for feeding your dog his or her own food, for administering medications, multiple group play sessions, or any TLC your dog needs. You may, however, sign your dog up for a walk or a bath, just let us know!
