Longview strives to be a home away from home for your dog(s)! At Longview, we provide safe, spacious indoor/outdoor runs for all dogs, big and small. All dogs are provided attention, love, and care by an experienced staff. The dogs know we love them and often wait by the door to go into the facility and give one more goodbye before leaving. Any medications, special food preferences, or other specific treatment for your dog is taken into account and administered with love, our guarantee. Due to all dogs having an indoor/outdoor space, we have the same rate for all dogs, regardless of size. Click on “Rates & Information” for more details.

Feeding

We serve Iams products. If your pet eats a product other than Iams, we suggest you bring your own dog food from home. A change in your dog’s normal diet can cause stomach upset. All pups get Sportmix Biscuits at bedtime, unless otherwise specified.

Medications

Medications can absolutely be administered if needed. Please bring all medications in their original containers with medication name and dose instructions. We carry cheese, peanut butter, Pill Pockets and meaty food chunks to give pill-form medication.

The Buddy System

At Longview, we believe dogs are happiest when they are socializing and interacting with other happy pups. Dogs are pack animals by nature and like to have a friend to stay with. This doggie socialization helps make your pet’s stay more enjoyable and alleviates any separation anxiety some pets may experience. Therefore, we use a Buddy System for single dog families, meaning we will buddy your dog with another single dog of similar size, age and personality in an indoor/outdoor run. The utmost care and attention is given to correctly matching dogs. Many of our customers come to Longview strictly because we give this social opportunity to their dogs.

Pre-Boarding Interviews

Longview require all new customers to come to Longview for an interview prior to boarding with us for the first time. The interview will be a 4 hour daycare at no cost to you. This free daycare should occur any day during open hours, except Sunday. This interview is necessary for our staff to observe how your dog(s) behave in our environment and to ensure they will not be a harm to themselves, other dogs, or our workers. This also helps us to understand their personality and what other dogs they can go with. If you are a multiple dog family, we need to ensure that they will get along together in a confined space. To set up an interview, please call us at (248)-879-0420. Longview does reserve the right to refuse aggressive pets for boarding.
