Boarding your pet at Stonehill will be a pleasurable experience. Your pet’s stay at Stonehill will be stress-free as our staff, facilities, and mission are tailored to each guest’s individual needs. If you anticipate your pet experiencing apprehension because of an upcoming boarding stay due to their boarding inexperience, Stonehill’s program features a pre-board acclimation option, which includes an overnight stay for your pet in advance of their extended stay to facilitate your pet’s acclimation to our staff, our other canine guests, and facilities. Make your reservations early and only for the time(s) needed. The pet-owner is responsible for paying the full fee, whether the reservation stay is shortened or the reservation stay is lengthened.
When checking in with your pet, please be brave and supportive of your pet. Our experience with drop-offs suggests that owner approval and support is key; pets respond more positively to boarding experiences when accompanied with owner support and approval, which certainly allows you the ability to relax and enjoy your time away.
We kindly ask that toys and other belongings are kept to a minimum upon admission. However, we do recommend a favorite toy or blanket from home to ameliorate any possible pet stress. Be sure to label all items clearly, with your last name and your pet’s full name.
