Philosophy/Mission: To provide the safest and most enjoyable boarding experience possible for their guests. Cage-free setup eliminates much of the stress that a dog might experience in a traditional boarding kennel. The owners have over twenty years of experience managing traditional and cage-free boarding and daycare businesses, and as a result have created a safe and spacious boarding facility with all the comforts of home. 3 Dogs treats your dogs like family — with the same love and attention they give their own pets. With round the clock staffing, the dogs in their care are never left unattended.
Signature Service: 3 Dogs Boarding and Daycare provides cage-free dog boarding and daycare, with staff on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Their heated and air conditioned 4000 square-foot facility has a giant play room, and an overnight boarding room loaded with beds, futons and comfortable chairs. Plus they have over 5000 square feet of outdoor space, with pools, sand boxes and play structures.
Community Involvement: 3 Dogs supports and has supported several animal welfare organizations, such as The Pongo Fund, Pacific Pug Rescue, and the Oregon Humane Society. They also foster, and have worked to find new homes for many dogs in need of re-homing.
