Stay & Play Boarding

Private In-Home Boarding

From the weekend visit to the multi-week stay, we provide dogs with an exciting and enriching experience!

During their stay, Stay & Play guests play with dog friends, go on long walks and take naps. They can even work with our trainers to achieve the goals on your training wish list. They stay in our team members’ homes, because we believe that a home setting, supervised by our professional staff, is the best setting for dogs versus a kennel environment.

This program is open to current and former training clients. We keep our program small. On average, our staff members house 1-2 dogs at a time. We send you updates, so you know how your furry friend is doing and have peace of mind while you’re away. Your dog is in good hands with us.

Stay & Play Boarding Testimonials

“Amy was so helpful with advice about adding a second dog to my home. She really helped me decide what kind of behavior I wanted ultimately and how to get it. I answered her questions and realized my expectations were off She helped me set realistic boundaries for them and directions for how to do it. She really helped me to think about and prevent problems before they even started instead of just waiting and reacting to problems. Thank you Amy!”

-Breanne Neal

“I can honestly say I have nothing but great praise to lead trainer Dana for all she’s done with training my dog -from the “Puppy Head Start Program” to the virtual training lesson I did to help progress my dog’s obedience. Definitely well worth the money, and I’ll absolutely would do it again within a blink of an eye with my next dog. Very appreciative and thankful.”

-Chris Morris

“This morning I had a 60 minute mentor program phone session with Amy, and it was money and time well spent. She was very open, helpful and through our conversation I had over two pages of notes! I very much appreciated her honesty and she helped me organize my thoughts and create a solid game plan for my goals. I highly recommend using her services if you’re in need of a sounding board for your personal aspirations in the dog world.”

-Samantha Lee

“Exceptional knowledge in all aspects of dog training. Amy and her staff are very professional, kind, and straight forward. They are really good at teaching the humans too (hardest part!!). My relationship with my GSD is strong and healthy thanks to Valor K9! Do not waste your time or money elsewhere.”
