Dog Boarding, Short and Long-Term boarding,
Daycare in a home-style environment.
at the Hound Hotel is focused on the dog's safety, their health, and their happiness. Come visit our approximate
2800 sq ft back yard where your pet will play and truly enjoy a loving and fun experience for your favorite friend while
you are away.
Our business is founded on the love of pets. We believe we provide
the best animal care available because of our experience and commitment to the health and happiness of each pet. We
believe each boarding or daycare pet flourishes within a home environment, like yours, compared to being in a kennel. Offering
the finest doggie boarding or daycare with exceptional quality services anywhere in the Bay Area where lots of human contact,
playtime, and love is given while their owners are away.
Hotel is a private dog getaway exclusively for short or long term boarding, and daycare in which we strive to keep the environment
happy, stress-free, and safe for our guests.
Due to safety, health and insurance
concerns to us, our home and, of course, to our beloved client boarding dogs, we do not accept unannounced visitors, known
as "lookie-loos)", or those without their updated state required vet shot record (Rabies, Bordatella and DH2PP)
and filled in application/contract prior to entering our grounds.
Do We Offer? This is a place where your beloved dog will learn that they will be well cared for, LOVED
as part of a family, and can play, relax, receive mental/physical stimulation and socialization skills without the
stress of being in a crate, or being in a kennel environment with dog runs and with limited human interaction.
There is plenty of room here to investigate all the smells and action (squirrels, birds, watching other dogs) that dogs love.
We want all dogs to feel our home is like an extension of your home, without a kennel.
So Where Are We? We're located in the quiet, charming woodsy area named El Sobrante
between Hwy 80 and Hwy 24, on San Pablo Dam Rd on a private 1/2 acre in El Sobrante with shaded trees.
Plus we have 4 gates that a dog would have to figure out how to get out of our compound, so we offer a completely safe environment
for your beloved family member.
Where Do We Go for Park Visits? Visits to the local Pinole Dog Park in Pinole is
where you will find us with a 2-3 daily hour visit, (twice per day during the summer).

Used? No crates are used unless you want them in a crate for bedtime or if they want to go
into one to rest. Please be sure to bring one of yours used T-Shirt, their blankie or dog bed. All dogs
sleep in the house at night, uncaged (unless you want them crated at night), and sleep just like they do at your home. Yes,
