Dog Boarding Flagstaff

Want your pet to have a home away from home while you travel? Be treated like royalty? Be loved by a team of trained experts? Have fun-filled, happy days while you're gone? Then you're in the right place! Our facility has been customized to suit your family member's needs.

What Makes Cinder Hills Different?

Day Boarding   ·   $23 per day (Not Staying Overnight)

  • Service includes complimentary one-on-one playtimes in the yard.
  • Excellent alternative for those guests who do not like playing with other dogs. (If you are looking for group play, see our Playful Paws Day Camp under Activities.)

Dog Boarding Accommodations

Our Classic Runs, Junior Suites and Cottage Suites are spacious and airy. Take comfort in knowing that here at Flagstaff's best boarding facility, when we say "Suite" it is truly a Suite and not just another enclosure with a different name to it!  Every guest has an indoor/outdoor run so they can take a break at THEIR convenience - no worries about relying on us to take a potty break!

What to Expect 

7:30AM: Good Morning

Our day begins at 7:30 AM, when we open the dogs up to the "outside" portion of their run. The dogs and cats are fed and watered, and litter boxes are cleaned.

8:30AM: A Day of Fun & Activities

Now the fun begins! Our staff members will split up and engage our guests in activities and playtime. We believe that pets need to be actively engaged to stay happy and healthy, so our staff is scheduled to maximize interaction throughout the day.

Some dogs may enjoy our Fun in the Forest Hikes, while others will have Individual Playtime in our yards. Cats will bask in one-on-one playtime in our Purring Parlor. Daily one-on-one playtimes with our staff are included in the boarding price at Cinder Hills! Our "Playful Paws" Day Camp, for dogs who enjoy social interaction with their pals, runs throughout the day. We also include some much needed rest periods. 

We continue this routine of rotating guests until the office closes for the day. The dogs are then locked securely inside their indoor portion (and cats locked in their private condos) when the sun starts to set.

8:30 PM: Good Night

We open the dogs back up and let them have one last chance to "do their business" before bringing them back in and saying goodnight. All guests receive their last complimentary treat of the day. This means your pet is only locked inside from about 9:30 PM until 7:30 AM!  Of course, Cinder Hills is the only Flagstaff kennel in which the owners care enough to live onsite!

We do provide complimentary treats throughout the day unless you direct us otherwise. Photos of our guests are taken daily and posted on Facebook, so "Like" us on our page to ensure you don't miss out!

Bedding, Belongings, & Toys

Pet bedding is available for each guest at no additional cost. You are more than welcome to bring food, treats, toys and bedding. We just ask that their bedding is machine washable and contains no foam rubber. Bedding from home is a "security blanket" for many dogs as it is something familiar for them!  Please do not bring food dishes or water bowls. Collars/leads aren’t necessary unless someone else is picking up your pet. Please make sure all belongings and food containers are labeled appropriately with your pet’s name prior to check in.

Vaccination Requirements

Canine Guests: Rabies, Distemper/Parvo combination, Bordetella (given every 6 months), Lepto is not required but strongly recommended if your dog has been to an area of potential exposure and/or your veterinarian recommends it.

Feline Guests: Rabies, Distemper; Leukemia not required 

Although currently not required, we strongly recommend that you have your family member on a heart worm preventative program as well as treated for fleas and ticks.  Local veterinarians have informed us that Flagstaff does indeed have fleas/ticks and we all know that mosquitos can be present (especially on the west side of town).

Bring a copy of your vaccination records from your vet or have them faxed to (928) 526.3812.
