How do I book?

  1. Grab your vaccination records and download the registration documents. Or stop by and pick up the forms. These must be filled out before boarding. 

  2. E-mail those documents + your current vaccination records to thebackyardboarding@gmail.com or drop them off.

  3. Call 218-346-7487 to book over the phone or click here to book online!

  4. Booking can also be done at our store, The Backyard!

What should I bring?

  1. Food and feeding instructions. No matter how easy or complicated, let us know what food to feed and how to do it! 

  2. Medications/Notes. Be as descriptive as you want! The more the better! We want to know everything about the pets we take in!

  3. Bedding/Toys. Bring whatever makes your pet feel comfortable. We provide elevated beds for each run, but many pets feel more relaxed with a blanket or sweatshirt from home placed on top of the bed. Please refrain from rawhides and other choking hazards.

What my dog can expect?

Although each dog is different you may notice a few common behaviors that owners might notice after picking up their dog.

  • Hungrier/Thirstier than normal. Many dogs don't eat or drink as much as they would while at home, when they are comfortable and at home again they may feast.

  • Diarrhea. Luckily this doesn't happen as much, but it can happen. The combination with the excitement of reunited with owners can actually cause loose stools for a few days. This can be normal, however if your dog has diarrhea and is refusing to drink water then please contact a vet immediately. 

Vaccination Requirements 

Dogs four months and older need to have an updated copy of these vaccines.
  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Parvo
  • Bordetella
