Adventure Boarding

For dogs nine months and up.

With Adventure Boarding, dogs get lots of adventuring every day AND get to stay in a trainer’s home! Adventure Boarding dogs become a part of our family, and come back home happy and tired after their stay with us.

Service includes…

  • Full-time care with a licensed, bonded, and insured rewards-based dog trainer in a trainer's home
  • One Adventure per day or Day Camp attendance (trainer-specific)
  • Garmin satellite GPS tracking for Adventures
  • Off-leash recall practice (coming when called)
  • Reinforcement of desirable behavior (sit, down, come, drop it, leave it, etc)
  • Management of undesirable behavior (jumping up, resource guarding, leash reactivity, mouthiness, bullying, mounting, etc)
  • Meals and medications
  • A towel-dried, clean-pawed, and happy pup
  • Daily photos of your dog's adventures
  • Ridiculous amounts of fun (and cuddles!)

Boarding dogs must be...

  • screened and approved by Dog Adventures Northwest through a free 30-Minute Evaluation
  • nine months of age or older (puppies eight months of age and younger must book Adventure Board and Train)
  • up-to-date on vaccines and parasite-protected
  • non-excessive barkers
  • content to be confined by crate, tether, exercise pen, or gate with limited barrier frustration or separation anxiety
  • content to share toys and low-value treats with other dogs (high-value treats will be given separately)
  • unable to jump a four-foot chain-link fence
  • dog-social and people-social (your pup doesn’t need to be the life of the party, but we do need to know that your dog, the other dogs in our care, and the people in our homes will feel safe at all times; we unfortunately cannot offer Adventure Boarding for reactive pups)
  • dropped off by the pup parent at the beginning of the pup’s stay
  • picked up by the pup parent at the end of the pup’s stay

Jess is an amazing trainer and person

Jess is an amazing trainer and person. We left our young, energetic, and sensitive male Vizsla with her for about a week for our first vacation in over a year.

She took impeccable care of him and provided him with lots of enrichment, hikes, love, and rest. She sent us lots of photos and videos so we could see what awesome things he was doing with her.

Jess was excellent at making us feel comfortable that he would have good interactions with the other dogs, as he can be a bit dog-selective in who he likes to interact with.

Jess has a great yard and house set up with lots of dog management tools in place, as needed. She also worked on some positive reinforcement training that we requested such as recall and calmness around other dogs.

We will definitely board and train with Jess again!

Dog Adventures Northwest ROCKS! What an amazing service. Our high-energy, 21-month-old, 80 lbs teenage Rhodesian Ridgeback has been with DANW from a young age. She goes on twice weekly adventures with the amazing Cyrus. She has the best time while out in amazing nature settings with a small group of dog buddies. She comes home very happy and exhausted.

They have convenient scheduling, communication, and billing through their online portal. Tons of pics and a pet report after each adventure. Trainers will let you know about estimated pick-up and drop off time - this service is dialed. Super happy with the other trainers we have used as well and it's obvious they all love their job. We have also used DAWN for Day Camps and when we are out of town it's our trusted place for Boarding as well. Great communication with the owner, Kerry. She will work with you to find the best fit for your dog. Can't say enough great things about DANW.

I travel a lot with work and I wanted my puppy to be in safe hands as he is very young. I've been booking board and train for the last 6 months and now I have transitioned over to boarding! The service from training to boarding has been impeccable! Kerry and her team at Dog Adventures Northwest are fantastic. I have been nothing but impressed by how much they have gone out their way to accommodate my puppy, Milo. Do not hesitate to book any of the services available. I couldn't recommend the team enough! There is consistent communication, putting your mind at ease while you're away travelling!

My 8-month-old dog has been going on weekly adventures for the past month and LOVES them! She squirms with delight when Clara comes to pick her up, and her recall is getting better each week. She comes home a very tired and happy pup!

Communication with Clara, the trainer, and Kerry, the owner, is very easy and responsive. They both have been wonderful to work with. Scheduling is also very easy either via text/email or the app. Clara sends an update and great photos after each outing. I will definitely use their boarding/sitting services when I need to travel. They are a very trustworthy and caring company. I highly recommend DANW.
