Quality Dog Boarding in Troy
Longview is camp for your dog(s). At Longview, we provide safe, spacious indoor/outdoor runs for all dogs big and small. All dogs get daily attention from experienced staff and socialization with other dogs. Many dogs that come to Longview pull their owners into our office and can’t wait to get back to the fun.
All pets MUST be in general good health.
All pets MUST be current on all required vaccinations. No pet will be admitted without current vaccinations on file.
Vaccinations or any vet visit CANNOT be done within 14 days of a boarding visit. (See vaccination page for more info.)
All pets must be spayed or neutered.
All dogs must be at least 10 months of age.
All dogs MUST be social with other dogs and with people. We reserve the right to refuse aggressive pets for boarding.
All dogs MUST be flea/tick-free and on a monthly preventative from your vet. Flea collars are NOT considered an appropriate flea preventative.
*For the safety of your pet, if your dog is: not in good health, under 10 months old, an extremely nervous boarder or very elderly, we suggest boarding at your veterinarian.

WE SERVE IAMS PRODUCTS (GREEN, BLUE OR RED BAGS). If you pet eats a product other than Iams, we suggest you bring your own dog food from home. A change in your dog's normal diet can cause stomach upset. We feed all pups in the morning. If your pet requires a second feeding (in p.m.) per day, we can do that for an additional $1.00 per day. All pups get SPORTMIX BISCUITS AT BEDTIME.
BUDDY SYSTEM SOCIALIZATION: Longview uses the "BUDDY SYSTEM" for single dog families. This means we will "buddy" your dog with another single dog of like size, age and personality in an indoor/outdoor run. To correctly buddy your pup, Longview requires a PRE-BOARDING INTERVIEW to determine your dog's personality. Once determined, we can match him/her up with a single roommate of suitable gender, age, size and activity level. This doggie socialization helps make your pet's stay more enjoyable and may alleviate some of the separation anxiety your pet may experience. Dogs are pack animals by nature and like to have a friend to stay with. The utmost care and attention is given to correctly matching dogs. Many of our customers come to Longview strictly because we give this social opportunity to their dogs.
THE "BUDDY SYSTEM" AND INTERVIEWS ARE FOR SINGLE-DOG FAMILIES. Multiple dog families can board together in a run. Interviews and tours of the facility are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please call first. (During peak boarding times, interviews/tours may be limited or suspended.) Please try to limit the interview to adults only. Interviews take about 20 minutes. There is a double charge if your dog requires single (alone) boarding during peak boarding times. Longview reserves the right to refuse aggressive pets for boarding. Sorry, but we cannot double Akitas, Rottweilers or Chows. We do not board American Staffordshire Terriers, Pit Bull Terriers, or strong Pit Bull mixes.
MEDICATIONS: Medications can be administered if needed. There is a $1.00 fee per day for any medications. Please bring all medications in their original containers with medication name and dose instructions. We carry Velveeta cheese, peanut butter, bread, Pill Pockets and meaty food chunks to give pill-form medication.
We RECOMMEND that all dogs get a bath/grooming before pickup. Regardless of our many efforts to keep the runs clean, there are instances (rain, snow, playing with buddy or dumping their water bowl) where you dog can get a bit dirty. We have a professional groomer on site. (Please see the DOG GROOMING page for details.)
