Got Questions?

Yes – the interview is included in the first day of boarding. This is necessary for us to decide if you and your pooch are interested in group play or one on one attention. We must be able to safely handle all dogs that stay with us. Any dog who demonstrates aggression towards staff or other dogs or dogs with high anxiety may be asked to seek other arrangements.

We thoroughly interview and assess each dog with several types of dogs to find the best possible fit. Our groups are based on a combination of size, age, breed, and temperament.
You can either fill out an application on-line via the customer portal, or we will be glad to take your information over the phone.

Yes, you can! It is easier on your pet’s digestive system if they get their normal food. If your pet’s stay is less than 7 days, we request that you portion out each meal into individual labeled storage bags. If your pet’s stay is longer than 7 days, you can bring an airtight container of food and we can portion it out according to your instructions.

For stays longer than a week, we can accommodate larger bags of food in an airtight container. Please let us know if any food needs to be refrigerated.

Of course! We encourage anyone to tour our facility at any time we are open. We know seeing is believing. Once you tour our luxurious facility we are sure your pet will want to join all the Pawlins fun!

If you pet gets sick or there is any medical emergency, they will be taken to River Road Veterinary Hospital (504-838-0288), our partner under our same roof, for the most immediate response possible, and you will be contacted.

Yes anytime your pup is in a room or yard with another one of our guests, they are always supervised by one of our staff. Also, our top-of-the-line webcam and surveillance system can give you peace of mind knowing your pup is in the best care possible.
