Note: we do not administer injections, sorry!

6. Are there any breed restrictions? 

While we believe that every dog deserves love and care, regardless of their breed, we cannot accommodate Pitbulls at this time. This is simply out of respect for the other dog owners that want peace of mind knowing their pups are in a safe environment.

Yes, we offer discounts for long-term boarding. Please contact us directly to discuss pricing and availability for extended stays, but we do offer 10% off for stays over 10 days, and 20% off for stays longer than 30 days.

8. Can I visit my dog during their stay? 

Of course! We understand that you may miss your furry friend, so you are welcome to visit during our business hours. However, we kindly request that you schedule your visit in advance to ensure we can accommodate you and minimize any disruptions to the other dogs in our care.

9. What happens in case of a medical emergency? 

The safety and well-being of your dog are our top priorities. In the event of a medical emergency, we will immediately contact you and, if necessary, seek veterinary care from our trusted local veterinarian. Rest assured, we will do everything possible to ensure your dog's health and safety.

10. Why the name Atlas Paws? 

We have 2 dogs of our own, Atlas and Gaia, both Golden Retrievers. The name Atlas Paws came from our dog Atlas, who is the kindest pup I've ever seen, and helps us immensely with socialization of newer dogs. 

11. How many dogs can you have at any given moment? 

Because we're offering a premium experience, we do not want to overcrowd our space. We will often have up to 5 dogs here, plus our own 2 dogs. We tested different numbers of dogs and learned this amount is the right fit for our space and we can provide incredible care for all of them.

12. Do you also do any fostering? 

We have fostered several dogs every year. We started this business out of pure love for dogs and wanting to be surrounded by dogs. If you check our mission statement, it's pretty clear our priority is always to have dogs and provide exceptional care for them. We continue to have fostering initiatives. 

13. How can I stay updated on my dog's activities? 

We love keeping you connected with your dog! We provide regular updates and photos through WhatsApp and our social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook. Follow us to see all the fun your furry friend is having!
