Finally, a doggie daycare and boarding facility has opened up in Mission Valley. It is called Pooch Hotel and it is located at 2120 Camino del Rio N. Phone number is 619-491-0239.
I visited the facility yesterday and had a tour with the Manager. It is a large, very clean, spacious facility that currently offers doggie daycare and overnight boarding. They have 3 large play areas so that dogs of different sizes and temperaments can play together. They are set up with a spa for dog bathing and grooming and will soon have a stylist on staff. They even have doggie treadmills. Their boarding includes 3 suites, the Junior Suite, the Presidential Suite, and the Palace Suite. The suites all offer DogTV and webcams so owners can check and make sure their "furry kids" are doing well. They also have 60 regular rooms, that are about 8 feet by 4 1/2 feet. All glass enclosures. Their prices for daycare and boarding are very reasonable and they are available 24/7 which a lot of other facilities do not offer. Although they offer doggie beds, bowls for food and water, etc. they do not give dogs toys so I highly recommend if your canine pal is going to stay overnight you bring some of his/her toys for them to play with.
Their staff are all trained and experienced from vet techs, to kennel workers. They are associated with the closest 24 -hr Veterinary clinic to their location, which in this case would be the VCA on Hotel Circle S.
The building is well ventilated with a hospital- type system to keep air fresh and eliminate the potential for spreading diseases.
They do require all dogs be up to date on their vaccinations and they perform temperament testing before allowing a dog to mix with the group.
I am personally thrilled to see this place open. As a pet sitter I get lots of calls in the Mission Valley Area from people seeking boarding and daycare, which I do not offer. If you check them out, please tell them I told you about them. Also, if you go online you can download a coupon for 50% off your first boarding stay or daycare package. www.poochhotel.com.
