Pet Boarding Services in Raleigh, North Carolina

Looking for a safe and fun place for your dog to stay when you’re away? Dogtopia of Raleigh received INDY’s Best in the Triangle for “Best Place to Board your Pet in Wake County” honors in 2014 and 2015.

We offer a clean and modern facility that is conveniently located between I540 and I440 off of Capital Boulevard. The location is perfect if you’re heading out of town, whether it’s for business or pleasure.

Boarding options available include overnight, weekend and extended stays. Our team will give your dog as much TLC as they would get at home. We realize that each dog is unique, which is why all of our four-legged guests receives personalized attention, whether it’s feeding them their regular dog food or administering any medication they may need, free of charge!

It’s little wonder the Dogtopia franchise voted our team the “Highest Customer Satisfaction” and “Best in Show” in 2014.

A Typical Day for Boarding Dogs

Being away from home can cause anxiety for many dogs. That’s why we offer a highly structured day for your pup when they stay with us. Think of a stay at our location as their vacation and our schedule as their itinerary. Here is how a typical day breaks down:

5:00 am – 6:00 am = Dogs are awakened and escorted to our outdoor playground to go to the bathroom.  The dogs are fed breakfast in individual home-style crates.  We ensure that each dog has a full hour of digestion before playtime begins.

7:00 am – 12:00 pm = Morning play time

12:00 pm – 2:00 pm = Daily naptime for each dog in individual home-style crates. We are happy to feed your dog our yummy treats at no additional charge.

2:00 pm – 7:00 pm = Afternoon play time

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm = The dogs are fed dinner in individual home-style crates.  Again, it is important that each dog get a full hour of digestion prior to any playtime.

8:00 pm – 9:30 pm = Dogs are escorted to our outdoor playground for their last restroom break.  The dogs are then put to bed in individual home-style crates in the same familiar room they played in during the day.

What Sets Our Boarding Apart

Rather than placing your dog in a cramped crate for the duration of their stay, your pup will enjoy full freedom in our open playroom alongside other boarding dogs and our daycare dogs. The only time they are crated is during a well-deserved nap in the afternoon, at mealtimes and during bedtime.

Playtime also includes time outside in our outdoor play area, weather permitting.

Check in Using Our Webcams

Each of our three playrooms and outdoor play area come equipped with webcams. Feel free to check in on your pup throughout the day. Please note that webcams are only available during regular hours and we switch them off during naptime and bedtime.

Add a Day at the Spa

If your dog is overdue for a bath or you just want to avoid the hassle of bathing your dog at home, we also include spa and grooming services as part of our boarding packages.

Our groomer Brenda Sylvia takes a one-on-one approach to each dog. Your pup will be groomed in a relaxing environment and look their best when you pick them up.

We offer a number of competitively priced boarding packages. Please contact us or visit our pricing page to find the one that is right for you. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to work with you to find one that works for you.
