Leaving Seattle for an upcoming vacation or business trip?  No matter how long you’re gone, we’ll make sure your dog receives the best care possible with our overnight boarding services.  Daycare play is included with boarding stays and we offer walking services for additional fresh air and exercise.  Our facilities are monitored with a crew member on-site 24/7 and you can check in on your pooch with our live webcams.  Our staff specializes in following your specific instruction so that your pooch receives their meals prepared just like they are at home and are administered any necessary medications.  Schedule a bath or groom on the last day of their stay and pick up a clean pooch!

  • All new dogs are required to have an evaluation day as well as an additional day of daycare at the location you plan to board your pup.
  • Please be aware that New Dog Evaluations are currently booked out about 4 weeks in advance at our Ballard and South Lake Union locations.
  • Future boarding dates cannot be booked or guaranteed until after your dog has completed and passed their New Dog Evaluation. We are unable to make exceptions to this, as it’s important to the safety of our crew and all the dogs in our care.

Our boarding billing operates on a 24 hour cycle. The nightly rate covers 24 hours from the time that you drop your pooch off. On the last day of your pooch’s stay, any applicable daycare rates beyond this 24 hour period will be charged (full day, half day, or hourly).

Due to demand, we are no longer able to offer overnight boarding without a reservation.

Quick-release collars are an extra measure of safety when your pooch is playing with the others. We require the quick-release collar so that we can snap it open in the rare instance that any pups should get a collar caught on their teeth or tangled with another.

Belt buckle style collars do not give us the ability to quickly separate dogs in a situation like this and can present a safety risk. We offer a number of affordable collars and options to store them here if you wish to have a different collar at home. Harnesses are not to be worn in the parks unless specifically recommended by a vet.

Note: Airtags, Fi tracking collars and other GPS technology trackers are not allowed in day care parks because they pose a choking hazard.

Bordetella vaccination is required every 6 months. We offer this vaccination in house for a fee, and will call you before administering it.

Health and Wellness- If your dog is sick, we kindly ask that you keep them at home until they are no longer contagious. Dogs say hello with their noses and their backends, so some viruses can easily spread in a highly social environment like Downtown Dog Lounge. Please do not bring them in if they are showing signs of illness or diarrhea. If you have brought them into the vet within 10 days prior to your arrival, please let our concierge know so they can look for signs of illness during their stay. We reserve the right to turn away any sick dogs coming into our facilities for the well-being of the other dogs in our care.
