t-day dinnerYour reservation must span a minimum of four calendar days. An additional “peak season” rate of $5.00 will be applied to each pet’s daily boarding cost beginning Tuesday, November 24th, and ending Monday, November 30th.  Your pet will be charged the standard daily boarding rate for all days they are present outside of that seven-day window. We are also offering “Thanksgiving Dinner” for dogs without dietary restrictions, consisting of turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans, and pumpkin. If you would like your pet(s) to participate, the cost is $10.00 for a single dog, and $8.00 for each additional dog.

If this will be your dog’s first visit to Alcala, they are required to attend a complimentary daycare session no later than Friday, November 20th.  Given the volume of pets and activity we are expecting for the holiday week, we want to make sure your dog will be happy and comfortable, while they are here.

Dogs receiving exit baths will be bathed on the morning of the day they go home.  If you need to pick up before 12:00pm, you will need to let us know ahead of time.

Any special feedings need to be pre-packaged for daily servings.  Please include extra bags in case your trip is extended.  If your pet needs medication, bring enough for two extra days.
