Overnight Dog Boarding
At The Board Hound, our goal is to set a higher standard for dog boarding. We pride ourselves in our ability to provide individual suites for dogs boarding with us, while also having the ability to provide shared suites for dogs in the same family, or as requested. Our boarding dogs have 24-hour, on-site care. The Board Hound is the only boarding facility in Arlington with on-site overnight supervision, and one of the only facilities in all of the metro area. Our priority is to provide a safe and comfortable place for your dog, for short or long-term boarding stays.
Every boarding dog is automatically enrolled into daycare, each day. Our boarding dogs are monitored very closely and given a unique boarding and daycare experience based on their individual needs. All dogs in our facility must be dog and human friendly, and pass the daycare evaluation prior to scheduling boarding. Overnight boarding is only offered at our Shirlington location.
For dogs staying two or more nights, the charge will be $65 per night (daycare included) for the first dog. Each additional dog will receive our multi-dog discount ($10 off) and be charged a rate of $55 per night (daycare included).
A dog staying only one night will be charged a max rate of $92 ($27 for each day of daycare, $38 for overnight). Each additional dog will receive the multi-dog discount (up to $15 off) and be charged a max rate of $77 ($22 for each day of daycare, $33 for overnight). If your dog is dropped off after 5 pm you will not be charged the daycare rate for the day of drop off. If your dog is picked up before 10 am the following day you will not be charged the daycare rate for the day of pick up. Drop off and pick up times only affect one-night boarding stays.
If your dog has an Unlimited Monthly Daycare Package, it will automatically be applied to all boarding stays while the package is current. There will only be a charge of $38 for the cost of each overnight.
Additional Boarding Services
House food can be provided at $2 per meal, per dog, as requested. Owner-provided, and individually portioned, meals are free of charge.
