Find What’s Best for Your Dog Here

The Hydrant Hotel has something for everyone, from young pups to senior dogs
and every lovable pooch, mutt, hound, and mongrel in between.

Dog Boarding

Think of The Hydrant as your four-legged friend’s home away from home—for when you’re away from home! Our beautiful canine castle will spoil your pup in an environment that is fun, safe, and stimulating. Our kennels are designed to comfortably accommodate dogs of all shapes and sizes. There are three types of rooms available, all with natural light and secure privacy doors. We also offer VIP rooms that keep your canine cozy in a real bed and even have their own TV! Just like home. All our boarders have the option to enjoy:
Safe and fun group play (if you like)
Privacy and comfort of “me time”
Special dog-sitting visits during their stay
All-day play
Spa treatments, hair and nails treatment, and massage

Check us out and check them in!

Doggie Day Care

Whether a drop-off is part of your daily doggie routine or you need to set up a custom day care schedule, our trained, caring, and professional staff sees to it that your canine has plenty of fun and gets lots of exercise every day. Then when you come for pick up, your baby will be happy to see you—and may be a bit tuckered out! Here’s what your dog can look forward to:
Lots of playtime, attention, and space
Groups of dogs of similar size and temperament
Realistic outdoor artificial turf and indoor flooring for comfort and safety
Music to set the playtime soundtrack
Monitoring of their ears, skin, teeth, and coat
Agility furniture to play on

See, we love your dog, too!

Dog Grooming

We really need to stop referring to this very special and very popular service as grooming and call it what it really is—spoiling your dog rotten! It’s really a day at the spa when you place your best friend with us. You may want to sign yourself up when you see all our spa partners do to pamper your pup:
Hair and nails
Relaxing "me time"
Tooth brushing
Shampoo and style—everything they deserve and more!

Let’s be honest, a pampered pup is a happy pup!

Training with Tim

Your dog’s favorite place to stay and play is where they’ll also learn to obey! We’ve added professional training services to The Hydrant's amenities. Schedule a session à la carte or add it to your dog’s stay or day care schedule.

Our trainer is Tim Almeida, a knowledge-assessed certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA®). This nationally recognized standard of excellence certifies his expertise in animal behavior, learning theory, dog training technique, and instruction, including:
Puppy kindergarten
American Kennel Club® Canine Good CitizenTM training class & testing
Extended board and train
Leash-walking class
Recall class
Proper play

Tim, in turn, has also trained our staff so everyone you encounter at The Hydrant is on the same puppy page. Now, this is something to bark about! Just let us know your dog’s breed, age, weight, and what type of training interests you.
