We are a family of professional pet sitters who own and operate K.Y.P.S.A.H. Pet Services (“Keeping Your Pet Safe and Happy!”). Though we offer other services through KYPSAH, we only offer dog boarding and daycare through dogvacay.com.
We are good at understanding dogs and speaking their lingo through providing them what they need: Lots of exercise, discipline and affection. In doing so, we are proficient at helping dogs overcome non-clinical behavioral issues such as Separation Anxiety (dogs that aren’t used to being away from their owners) and fear (dogs that have a little fear and are not fear aggressive; we don’t accept fear aggressive dogs).
Fur-kids who stay with us do so in a cage-free environment and are affectionately known as our “foster fur-kids”. All sleepover guests receive a lot of exercise (off-leash adventures are also available at no extra charge weather and schedule permitting; however, dogs must be under constant line of sight and voice recall in order to participate), clear and consistent boundaries and all the love and affection they can receive. The formula above is how we convey love and security to our own personal fur-kids, as well as, all fur-kids who stay with us. Because the dogs know we love them, they’re always excited to come back and stay with us again, which always warms our hearts ?
Treating dog owners the way we would want to be treated, we have always operated by the principle of open communication. It has always been important for us to give owners that priceless peace of mind they need knowing their fur-kid is safe and happy, and we achieve this by sending pictures and/or short video clips of their fur-kids in motion, as well as, text updates.
Daycare is available Monday through Friday only, and boarding is offered daily (please check our calendar for dates that we’re closed). We are closed Sundays for pick-ups and drop-offs so all pups need to arrive or depart on any day Monday through Saturday save for Sunday.
Free pet taxi service is offered to Woodland residents only.
For guests who reside outside of Woodland (up to 20 miles from Woodland), the stated pet taxi rate on our listing applies.
• Must be dog-friendly with all dogs
• Must be current on all shots including Bordatella (you will need to provide us a copy of your pup’s vaccination records)
• Must be cat-friendly
• Must be housebroken
• Must be at least 6-months-old
• Must NOT be an excessive barker or howler
• Must have zero aggression
• Must be at least 30 lb.
Why a size minimum? Most of the dogs that board with us are medium-sized dogs up to very large.
We also recommend that your pup be on HeartGuard and flea and tick preventative.
If your pup has any food allergies, please let us know what they are.
For fur-kids boarding with us, all we need is their food. We provide everything else and prefer that nothing other than food is brought so that items such as toys, beds, blankets and such are not inadvertently damaged during dog play, etc.
We would be honored to be considered your pup’s care provider and look forward to the opportunity to answer any questions you may have. Because we operate out of our home, all Meet and Greets are by appointment only.
