When considering any new boarding facility, it is always best to check out the facilities ahead of time. Walk through the facility and ask questions about how your pet will be cared for, exercised, fed and housed, as well as any other concerns you might have. We encourage you to drop in any time, and visit our facility for a tour and to ask any questions you may have. Come see why we are the top choice in the for boarding in Carmel IN and surrounding areas!
Free Trial Day
We offer a "Trial Day" before you board, when possible. We will not charge you for your pet to visit for a day at our facility if you have a future reservation. Trial days allow your pet to adjust to the facility, realize you're coming back for them, and give you added peace of mind that our facility will be the perfect fit for you and your pet.
Our facility was built so that all of the standard rooms as well as the Deluxe suites have their own private outdoor space. All of the runs are heated and air conditioned on the inside, with heated floors for use during colder temperatures. Each run has 6' privacy walls inside and 3' walls plus chain link fence outside. Boarding rates are all-inclusive and include bedding, dispensing medications, giving treats, cleaning, brushing, loving, cuddling, night time tuck-in and food (we serve a top-rated grain-free lamb and fish food that we also offer for sale). We do not raise our boarding rates for prime time or holiday periods. We offer the following dog boarding options:
Standard Room - $37.28/Day
Our Standard Room is 4' x 4' on the inside and 4' x 15' on the outside. The door between the two areas can be raised and lowered to allow your dog to move about as they please (weather permitting).
Deluxe Suites - $80.00/Day
Our Deluxe Suites also have indoor/outdoor areas, but the suites are 5' x 10' inside with a window that looks outside onto their own private astroturf play area, with another 112.5 sq feet outside. The deluxe suites also include raised bedding (even though the floors are heated), with concierge service 5 times per day (brushing, petting, etc.).
Little Dog Rooms - $38.59/Day
For small dogs, we feature our Little Dog Rooms. These rooms consist of indoor-only rooms that are 5' by 4'. These dogs are taken outside to a fenced-in area five times a day for potty time and play time. Our Little Dog Rooms are meant for the pet that is small and timid and would not be comfortable in the larger indoor/outdoor runs.
Cattery - $27.5/Day
Our cat boarding area, or Cattery, is a separate sound-proofed area with a large bay window that allows all of the cats a view to the outside from their room. The cat rooms are approximately 4‘ long by 2‘ wide by 2‘ deep, with an on-suite (separate area for the kitty litter). In addition to their rooms, all cats are given a playtime out into the cattery room by themselves during the day to climb on the trees, play with the toys, or just lay in the sun looking out the large bay window at the bird feeders.
Our most attractive service is our exercise program. It is based on the fact that most dogs are very social. We have six different exercise yards to accommodate our guests. We have four large yards (over 1 acre each), fenced, which are a perfect place for dogs to run unrestricted and play to their heart’s content. For dogs that need to run in a smaller group, or even by themselves, we have two yards at ½ acre each and three smaller yards behind the kennel area. We group the dogs together based on their size and personality, and staff members are present at all times when the dogs are outside. All of the fields have agility equipment for the dogs to play on, and we take toys with us for energetic games of ball, tag and Frisbee. In the summertime, we have pools to play in, as well as hoses and shade to keep the dogs cool while they play. The exercise sessions are at least 30 minutes in length.
- 1 exercise session (30 mins) - $9.45/day
- 2 exercise sessions (30 mins each) - $18.90/day
Board & Play
If your dog is boarding at ZCK, you can send him to Kennel Camp and let him play and socialize ALL DAY LONG with the other camp dogs. This is a great way to ensure your pooch sleeps well at night! We offer a reduced rate for our boarding dogs.
*A free assessment is required prior to boarding.
Boarding Fees, Discounts & Programs
Our fees are all-inclusive and based on the number of days boarding. The day your pet is left with us is the first day you are charged. The day you pick up is the last day you are charged, however the last day charge is waived when a pet is getting bathed/groomed, attending Kennel Camp, or is picked up before noon. On certain holidays, a non-refundable deposit made be required to hold your reservation.
