Let your dog vacation while you do.



Dogs deserve fun getaways, just like their humans.

At Bone-A-Fide, your dogs will have a blast and feel right at home. Our overnight dog boarding guests stay in a real house, not in cages. It’s like a slumber party for dogs, with dogs in six assigned sleeping areas, equipped with comfy beds, couches and open kennels. During busy times, dogs can also sleep in our warm, roomy Lodge.

We charge a flat fee for dog boarding that covers anything your dog might need. (We won’t nickel and dime you for things like giving medicine.) They’ll enjoy eight hours of supervised play daily, as well as breakfast and dinner (please bring their food, to keep their digestive systems happy). We can even arrange for a departure bath and nail trim on the last day, for an additional charge.

People from throughout the Seattle, Everett, Snohomish, Woodinville & Bellevue areas (and beyond!) board their dogs at Bone-A-Fide so please be sure to reserve your dog’s stay in advance, especially during busy summer and holiday times. New to Bone-A-Fide? Let’s Get Started

Boarding Dos & Don’ts:
-Drop off your dog between 8:30 am and noon, to make socialization easier and to ensure we can get them nice and tuckered.
-Pick up your dog anytime between 8:30 am and 6:00 pm.
-We charge a daycare fee if your dog is picked up after 3:00 pm. ($20/dog)
-Regular daycare dogs can be picked up and/or dropped off by our vans. ($15 each way)
-Bring only as much food, medicine, treats, etc. as they’ll need during their stay.
-Label these items clearly in disposable containers, like plastic bags.
-Do not bring crates, beds, bowls or leashes — we have oodles.
-Make sure your dog is wearing a clip or buckle-style collar. Choke and prong collars are not allowed in the yard.
-If you make arrangements with an outside service (such as Dog Gone Taxi) to bring your dog home after a boarding stay, you must prepay for all services.
-We have an excellent relationship with Dog Gone Taxi (doggonetaxi.com) and Seattle Pet Taxi (seattlepettaxi.com). Both companies offer canine transportation for folks in Seattle, Bellevue, Everett and beyond who can’t drop off or pick up their dogs.

“I can’t begin to tell you how much of a blessing it is to come home at the end of a trip or a long day and find the dogs more wiped out than we are! The greatest thing about Bone-A-Fide is the personal attention that each dog gets. The staff truly loves each and every dog.”
