Your Pet Is Our Priority
Meet Some Of Our Regulars
A Home Away From Home
Pettsboro Groom and Room is a cage free boarding service. Throughout the day, your dog is given exercise inside and outside weather permitting, rests, fed breakfast, snacks, and dinner. Our rooms are temperature controlled. Love and cuddles are also included. Owners can provide their food and snacks if you have a special diet for your pet.
Dogs like to hang out with each other. Your dogs have the option for a family room with a cozy sofa, in front of the TV, to a big cozy dog bed with some friends in one of our playrooms, or kennels are offered. Our large kennels are big enough to accommodate families with two dogs to curl up together. Bedding is cleaned regularly. Our outdoor play area is fenced in and secure. At Pettsboro Groom and Room we make your dog’s stay an enjoyable one.

Boarding and Daycare
We review your dog’s temperament to ensure a good fit. Every dog is different and our staff works closely with each dog to understand their individual needs. Our roaming boarding care works well for sociable dogs and they love making friends. We offer a slower paced area for older dog or those too young to romp around with the bigger dogs.

Dog daycare can be an amazing experience for dogs with a compatible temperament. It provides dogs with boredom relief, a healthy outlet for pent-up energy, exercise, socialization and constructive interaction with humans. Pet owners enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing their dog is well cared for while they are away. Not all dogs are a good fit for boarding. But that certainly doesn’t mean that they are “bad” dogs. It simply means that dog daycare is not their thing. While there are varying degrees of suitability, placing some dogs in daycare can create overly stressful or unsafe conditions. We screen all potential pet guests with a temperament check. This gives us a pretty good idea of whether or not the pet is a good candidate for daycare.
Yes, there is no additional charge for a quick picture or video of your pet during the day. We can send it directly or upload it to our facebook page. Talk to us about a request when dropping off your pet.
Temperment Test And Requirements
Temperament Tests are performed by appointment and are completely FREE. This will give us an opportunity to evaluate your dog’s behaviors and find out if your dog is a good fit. Quirks and habits are important to know such as eating, sleeping, drinking, etc.
It’s good to bring your dog in for a few day care visits before taking a long trip so your pet feels comfortable. Your dog’s boarding experience can be fun and relaxing if you do a bit of planning and preparation. Make sure you give us any needed medication and instructions.
- All dogs must be current on rabies, bordetella, canine influenza, and (adult) distemper-parvo vaccines. A hard copy showing proof of vaccines must be provided.
- Your pet’s veterinarian contact information.
- All dogs and cats must be spayed/neutered.
