We took our dog to Safe Journey once and had a good experience and wanted to take him back for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend. We were quoted a price that didn't properly add ...

I've been inside and the dogs are all very happy and playful. In short, I'm very pleased with the treatment of my four-legged friend and would heartily recommend Safe Journeys. Check out the photos, they are very consistent with what I saw.\r more

I've been using Safe Journeys since December and my dog begins wagging her tail as soon as we pull-up in front of the business. John comes to the curb to get her and she is always very excited to see him. When I pick her up in the evening, she seems very happy and watches (with a forlorn look) John or Craig as they walk back into the house.\r more

I found this place online after visiting several other larger places. I have a 4 month old puppy and wanted a place that was smaller, and gave my dog a lot of attention. I couldn't believe how nice they were and how beautiful the place was!! My puppy is a mini doxie, so he needed a place that he is protected. I'm so happy I found them!!! Check them out if you’re looking for daycare. You'll fall in love.\r more

The guys that run the place took time to get to know our dog and then introduced her slowly to all the other dogs there. The back yard was super clean and fresh water was everywhere. I feel completely comfortable leaving our dog in a place with round the clock care and supervision, no crates or cages, comfy couches to lounge on and lots of dogs to play with. The guys are loving and sweet to every dog and they have experience with training and correcting behavior. I more excited now for my trip this Christmas knowing my pup will be in good caring hands, she will probably even forget we have left!\r more

""Have continued to use Safe Journey for the last year and I'm still very satisfied with the level of care. \r We just moved to the area and have been looking for a doggy day care/boarding close to home. SafeJourney was awesome! When we came in for the visit the place looked and smelled clean.""\r more

Our dog, Bauer, always comes home happy and relaxed. We love that the dogs aren't kenneled and get plenty of time to play.\r more

Murphy did just great. It was so nice to get away and know that he was so well cared for and having a ""vacation"" too.\r more

Pup keeps on growing and we keep on going. Our energetic puppy loves Craig and Safe Journey. Business forces me to travel every 6 weeks or so and I always bring our pup to SJ.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/30/2013

Craig, his daughter, family and staff showered our pup with all kinds of love and attention. He was such a happy little guy when we picked him up. He did that little back end wiggle waggle jig. He nuzzled Craig, was well exercised, fed and in overall good spirits. He smelled like dog for sure but I figure he made friends, socialized and played thus got that potent dog scent. Good stuff.\r more

We boarded both of our dogs on short notice. They were very friendly and helpful and I will recommend and use again next time we are in town. Thanks!\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/9/2013

It is a comforting feeling to drop off my dogs at SafeJourney because I know they will be safe and well-cared for. When John takes them by the leash to the front door, they don't even look back because they are excited to get inside and see the other dogs. Thank you!\r more

Thank you! It's so nice to have a place where I feel comfortable leaving Bailey.\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/12/2013

Ideally, I would like to see the dogs have more outdoor space to run in, but still a great place.\r more

Home-Style Dog Boarding & DayCare

Owner Message
  • Welcome to Safe Journey Dog Boarding - A crate free pet boarding facility.

    Serving our local community's need for top of the line crate-free boarding, Safe Journey is the best in the business when it comes to caring for animals, people and the Earth. It's crucial to our vision to be compassionate not just to pets, but to humans and our environment, as well. That's why we operate with social and economic justice and environmental sustainability in mind at all times.

    How it works:

    You make a reservation to bring your dog to us during check-in hours. Your pet spends the day and night at our comfortable Victorian home, with us and other dogs. For your dog's protection, our home is climate-controlled and our yard is pesticide-free. We care for an average of 5 dogs during the week and average of 9 dogs on weekends. During the Holidays we care for 15-19 dogs.

    While in our home, your pet enjoys frequent contact with care providers, petting, play time, and more. We follow all your instructions regarding your pet's feeding, medications and appropriate behavior. Dogs are free to roam 1400 square feet of space. Outdoors they can bask in the sun on our back deck and play in our fully secure and fenced yard.

    We are a family business and incorporate our lives into our work. This means we sometimes have to safely arrange the pets while we run to the post office, to the grocery store and other errands. All dogs need to be family raised dogs that get along great with people and other dogs.

    Our team members focus on providing the best possible care for your animal companions and we can claim the absolute best care providers in the area.. * Crate Free Dog Boarding
    * Dog Day Care
    * Dog Training
    * Pet Taxi - Door to Door Service
    * 24 Hour Onsite Management

    Please visit our web site for a full overview of our facility and services.

    We look forward to providing a loving home for your pets while you are away.
