We're a family owned and run business and before we opened Four Paws Inn we had been breeding, raising and loving dogs for over twenty years. We opened in 2011 for boarding and grooming and began our daycare with just 4 dogs in October of that year.
Since then we have expanded our outdoor spaces to include 4 outdoor paddocks for all our visiting dogs to enjoy along with our 13 kennels and 3 XL crates to accommodate boarders. Our kennels all have rubber mats and a small cement outdoor run for each dog to enjoy on their own with a view to the back of our beautiful fields and a view to the front of our main paddocks.
We have a wide knowledge of different breeds and behaviors, and are very familiar with the importance of good, safe socialization for dogs that makes for fun play and tired dogs at the end of each day.
We offer a boarding area with rubber mats on the floor and comfortable fleece blankets for every dog! We have indoor/outdoor kennels and four large outdoor fenced-in play areas. There are larger kennels to accommodate dogs from the same family who prefer to board together, smaller ones which are cozier for smaller dogs and extra large crates for dogs who are used to sleeping in a crate. We're happy to work with dogs that prefer human company and will spend time with them separately from their canine pals.
While boarding we offer a discount on our daycare program. For an extra $10 a day, your dog will spend Monday-Thursday outside with our daycare dogs running and playing! If you purchase one of our discount cards, daycare while boarding is included.
During days that we don't have daycare, (weather permitting) boarding dogs spend most of the day outside in one of our play areas with other dogs of like energy levels. During daycare days boarding dogs that are not in daycare spend the majority of the day resting in their kennels, but they do get out to visit and stretch outside a couple of times during the day if they are able to be with other dogs.
Our check-in and check-out hours for boarding dogs are 7 days a week, between 8-9am and 4-5pm. We charge $25/day for boarding and we do charge for the day your dog comes in whether it's AM or PM. Check-out must be between 8-9am to avoid being charged another day's boarding rate. (Think of it as 'check out time'....if it's after 9AM then you will be charged for another day.)

Full grooming services are also available here, (bathing, brush-outs, clipping, flea baths and nail trims). We have a state-of-the-art tub that lowers to allow older pets and smaller dogs easy access and then raises up to a comfortable level for washing them.
