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)
  • wearing a harness and identification tag (required) and microchipped (highly recommended)
  • 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

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We are so thankful we've found Kerry! Our dog, Mavis, absolutely loves the time she spends at Kerry's house and we appreciate boarding her in a warm, caring home versus a boarding facility. Along with her daily outdoor adventures to the river or running through the forest, Mavis enjoys spending her day playing with her buddies (the resident dogs), lounging on the sofa with human friends, and roaming about the house. Mavis is treated with the same care and attention Kerry provides to her own dogs, with plenty of love and attention. While Mavis is in Kerry's care, we enjoy receiving our daily pictures and updates of our big, sweet girl. As a younger puppy, we also had Kerry do some puppy training sessions to help Mavis master some of her good canine citizen skills. Kerry shared some tips and tricks with us for exercises and training to do at home. Additionally, if she notices anything off about Mavis, she is sure to let us know and always gives us great advice. We're so grateful to have someone committed to the same level of care for our Mavis as we are.

Ashlee and Mavis
