At Buddy Boarding Farm, your dog instantly becomes a part of our pack. We take each dog under our wing and invite them to partake in games, socialization time, walks and more! After an initial temperament test, your pup will participate in daily activities in small groups of dogs - anywhere between 2-25 dogs. Dogs will be separated based upon their energy level and size.
Unlike most boarding facilities, we do not charge extra for exercise and play time. We believe these activities are essential to a dogs health - therefore, each and every dog will receive ample amounts of activity time. Exercise activities are structured around your dogs energy level and natural ability.
Your buddy will also be given plenty of breaks - especially on hot summer days! Each pup will have his or her own space where they can rest easy. Depending on your dogs energy level, expect her to participate in 2-3 hours of activity at a time and then transition to 2-3 hours of resting at a time.
Space is limited at Buddy Boarding Farm. To reserve your free temperament test, email us or call today.

What is a temperament test?
A temperament test is a test to ensure your dog gets along with other dogs, is friendly towards our human pack leaders, and is not a flight risk (i.e. actively seeking to escape the fence).
You will drop your dog off for a few hours and your dog will participate in group play sessions so that our team members can test your pup. If you have not filled out necessary paperwork before the day of the test, you can do so at Buddy Boarding Farm.
