  • Label each with your pet's name
  • Label each with instructions for the a.m. or p.m. meal
  • There is no charge for handling or storage

Safety

We LOVE pets! For their safety, we evaluate each dog/cat before socialization and recommend keeping them on a familiar diet to avoid unnecessary digestive discomfort. To prevent injury to your pet and others, we ask that you please ensure their nails are trimmed before check-in. Safety is a top priority, for this reason, Tanker Tails retains the right to refuse any service.

Dog Boarding

Overnight

Are you a pet parent in need of accommodations for your furry family member? Look no further than Tanker Tails! All guests will receive one-on-one attention and playtime daily. We offer indoor kennels, each with access to a fenced-in, outdoor portion for your pet to enjoy during the day. After passing a compatibility evaluation, your pet will be able to participate in group sessions in our outdoor play yard with other furry guests enjoying their stay. You have the option to accept or decline socialization. We also encourage you to bring comfort items such as beds, toys, and treats, except for rawhide, for safety reasons.

If your pet has not boarded with us before, the pet(s) must be scheduled for a daycare trial. This is to ensure the safety of the caretakers and to see how well they acclimate to the new environment. You have the option to download the intake package or give us a call (509-247-4799) to schedule an appointment or fill it out in person. Please call to request an email address.
