  • Accommodations with soothing music and sound machines

  • Playtime at no additional cost

Your dog will be treated as one of our own. Our staff frequently checks in on each guest to pamper them. We go out of our way to make their stay as comfortable as possible by comforting any that appear sad or that may be missing their human family. We do our best to ensure that our guests leave happy.

Special Needs

The highly trained staff at the Clip Shoppe understands that all of our pets may have special needs at one time or another. Please discuss any special requirements with us when you make your reservation. We will do everything in our power to make sure your pet is provided for.

Accommodations are medications, supplements, special meal preparation pre/post-surgical or injury treatment. Our staff can administer injections, oral or topical medications your dog or cat may require during their visit. 

A veterinarian is on call 24 hours a day in case of emergency. 

Provisions for Your Pet
We provide soft, comfy bedding on a raised cot and play soft music or sound machine 24 hours a day. Our indoor facility is fully air conditioned and heated.

Your dog will be taken outside at least 3 to 4 times a day with a handler. They can play and run, off-leash, in our large outdoor fenced-in yards. They do not play with other dogs.

You should provide food and treats for your pet’s stay with plenty of extra just in case you are delayed or extend your stay. We prefer for you to bring your pet’s food and treats so they stay on their diet and do not get upset stomachs. No rawhide treats please, as they can be a choking hazard!

You may bring bedding and toys from home to make your pets stay more comfortable and fun, but please limit the amount that you bring. When possible, label all of your pet’s belongings. It is also nice to bring something that you have worn, something with your scent on it to leave in the kennel with your pet. A t-shirt or hand towel work great.

Please do not bring feeding bowls, water bowls, or measuring cups. We prefer to use our own and yours may get lost or misplaced.
