The Valley’s Premier Pet Lodging, Doggie Day Care, Training & Pet Spa Facility

* Our sprawling 8,000sqft facility will provide a comfortable environment for all dogs and small pets. (Sorry – we do not accept cats). We understand that some animals are timid or shy and prefer to spend time in small enclosures similar to the crates that they have at home. Some animals are very social and prefer a traditional and larger dog kennel, and yet others prefer to have a large, quiet private, area away from the other pets. We believe that the unique design of our facility offers the best boarding solution for every pet!
* All canine guests will enjoy a structured stay which will include ample play and potty breaks rotating all day long from open to close into our large, indoor dog park, morning and evening feedings, toys to play with, elevated beds with plush blankets, and interaction with our pet care professionals. Being dog owners ourselves, we vowed to have a different model where our boarding guests are constantly being rotated into the indoor, over-sized park area for individual playtime throughout the day. We never leave our guests in their kennels except for feeding, resting, and cleaning times.
* We apologize but we cannot take in any feline pets as they do not typically do well in new environments.
* Each pet resort guests will receive their own plush bedding and stainless steal bowls in their kennels.
* Boarding check-in is Mon-Fri anytime between 7am-6pm, and Sat between 9am-12pm. No check-ins on Sundays.
* Boarding check-out time is by 12pm. All check-outs after 12pm Monday – Friday will be charged a half day of the boarding rate. Our front office is closed on Sundays, however we allow pick ups by appointment only from 9am-12pm.
* All pets must be current on rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations from a veterinarian’s office or reputable vaccination clinic.
* Family pets can stay together in the same kennel but the price is per night, per pet.
* All puppies that have had their full vaccinations are welcome. Please refer to your veterinarian for appropriate ages.
* A 50% Non-Refundable deposit is required at the time of the reservation for all boarding reservations during our Peak Seasons or of one week or more, or for any stays over 6 days or over $350.00.

At Sonoran Desert Pet Resort, we view all pets as family. Feel free to book your small pet with us. We will take good care of them in your absence. Small pets may include mice/ rats, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hedgehogs, rabbits, birds, turtles/ tortoises, lizards, etc. They must come in their own enclosures and we will watch them in our front office away from the loud kennel noises.


The crown jewel of our resort is the indoor dog park for our boarded dogs. At almost 1,500 square feet, the park utilizes top quality pet turf, made specifically for dog urine/ feces control using Envirofill’s Microban antimicrobial protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. Utilizing an SMT cleaning system, the park surfaces are cleaned several times a day with high pressure water and disinfectant solutions which drain to several centrally located drains promoting a bacteria and odor free environment. The park is fully air conditioned for year round comfort, and is partitioned into four separate areas for your pets to enjoy without interacting with other guests.

Vaccinations: All Pets must be vaccinated at a veterinarian’s office or equivalent. No home administered vaccinations are allowed. Please contact us if you have questions. The following are required:


  • Rabies
  • Distemper /Parvo Combo (DHPPLC) – Current within one year
  • Bordetella – Current within one year. Please have bordetella administered no sooner than three days before your pet’s visit.


We will examine every pet upon check-in. If we find evidence of fleas or ticks, we will be administering a Flea & Tick upon check in. The fee for this treatment is $12. This helps ensure the comfort of all our guests.
