Dogtopia of Madison West is “top dog” when it comes to providing the best dog care in the area. We consider boarding to be a “Daycare Plus” experience for our overnight guests. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and fun environment for our four-legged guests whether they are here for the day or overnight.
What Sets Dogtopia’s Dog Boarding Apart?
Your dog is a member of your family and we know you worry about them while you’re away. Feel peace of mind and keep an eye on your pup using the webcams in all three of our playrooms and two outdoor playgrounds. We also send regular email updates on your dog’s appetite, health, and play during their stay.
All boarding dogs participate in off-leash, open-play with our daycare guests and receive extra feeding and play times in the morning and evening – that’s up to 12 hours of exercise and socialization with canines and human friends. That said, boarding dogs participate in our regular naptime from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., daily and receive additional rest breaks throughout the day to ensure they are not overstimulated. For nighttime rest, you are encouraged to bring personal food, toys and bedding from home for additional comfort but are welcome to request Dogtopia bedding or food at no additional fee. We do not charge extra to administer pills, drops or ointment medications.
Bedtime for boarding dogs is at approximately 9:30 pm. Dogs sleep in the same rooms they play in so they have a familiar environment from sun up to sun down. Each dog is provided an appropriately-sized crate for comfort and safety overnight, but your dog will rest easy in an environment they are used to. They’ll bunk next to their friends and/or siblings and we provide alternative crating options for dogs who are unfamiliar with crates at home. We cozy up each homestyle crate with bedding and toys, as appropriate, but by the time night falls, your dog will be experiencing “the Dogtopia Daze” and will sleep deeply after their full day of fun!
Before your dog boards or daycares with us, you’ll need to schedule a temperament assessment at Dogtopia. This meeting will give us a chance to meet your pup and learn whether or not they will enjoy the energy of our open-play, off-leash environment. All boarding dogs are required to pass this temperament assessment as well as attend at minimum, one full day of daycare at Dogtopia prior to their stay. This ensures your doggie will be well-acclimated before you leave them for their stay. Some doggies are slower to adapt to the excitement of our open-play environment. Our staff will let you know at the Meet & Greet if we feel your doggie may need some extra days of daycare to fully adjust so they can be stress-free during their vacation. This Meet & Greet process also ensures that your doggie is playing with other dogs who have shown to be well suited to the same environment so that all can enjoy happy and healthy play!
All dogs that enjoy the fun of Dogtopia need to be spayed or neutered by their seventh month and up to date on their rabies, Bordetella, distemper/Parvovirus, and canine influenza vaccinations. We also require a negative result on a fecal floatation and Giardia antigen test every 6 months. We’ll asked for a copy of this information for your doggie’s pet file.
To prepare for your meet and greet, you should fill out the registration form and bring your vaccination records with you.

Our boarding rate starts at $26 per night and reduces based on the number of nights your pup stays with us. The boarding rate represents the additional charge of the overnight care to the all-day daycare experience, which is required. Daycare pass holders may use their daycare pass to reduce their out-of-pocket expense and to receive the discounted daily rate associated with their daycare pass. Non-pass holders will be charged the daily rate for daycare. The overnight care includes complimentary medication administration and the use of Dogtopia food and bedding, if you so choose, though you may upgrade your dog’s boarding stay with seasonal treats, spa treatments, and other fun events! Visit our pricing page or contact us to learn more about our boarding rates.
We offer discounts for multi-dog families – you’ll receive a 10% discount on each additional dog.
Please note, dogs who are boarding with us for the first time are required to attend daycare with us for one-five days prior to boarding, based on our observations during the temperament assessment. This day of daycare is in the best interest of your doggie – helping your sweet pup acclimate to our environment so the boarding stay is fun and relaxing.
Pamper your Pooch with Spa Treatments
Does your dog get stressed when they’re away from home? Treat them to some extra pampering at our doggie spa. Upgrade your boarding package to include a bath, nail trim or dremel, ear cleaning, and teeth brushing. Our spa services don’t stop there! We also offer de-shedding services and deluxe brush outs.
