Our Dog Boarding Philosophy
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.
At The Board Hound, our daycare was established to enrich the lives of the dogs in our community through healthy outlets for play and socialization. Our smaller play groups come with individual care and attention, while providing a low-stress, safe, daycare environment at our locations in Arlington and Alexandria. Since safety is our first priority, we start with providing a high staff to dog ratio of about 1 to 10. This personalization ensures that your dog is always closely monitored.
