Before your dog's first day here at the Lake Mathews property, we recommend a meet and greet visit. We want you, (family and friends are welcome too!), and your dog to come meet us and our pack. We believe that a meet and greet is important for everyone, so we can determine if our place is the right fit for your canine. During your visit, we will take you around to see the grounds, and talk more about your dog's specific needs and routines. The more information you can share with us about your dog, the better. When you bring your dog to us for boarding, he/she becomes part of our family! 


Topline K9 Services offer two boarding options:


  • Outdoor boarding in 10x5 kennels at $40/night/dog. 


  • Indoor boarding in 10x5 kennels at $50/night/dog. 


At no point do we keep any dogs in crates. The only time we crate a dog is during transportation, or if we crate train a dog per request from owner.  

To think about before arrival

If this will be your dog's first stay with us, plan to arrive in good time before your appointment as you will need to fill out some paperwork. The paperwork can also be emailed in advance upon request. We prefer, but do not require, for you and your dog(s) to come for a short visit before their actual stay. Then we get to meet you and get to know your dog. More importantly, your dog gets acquainted with us and becomes familiar with our place. 


To prepare your dog for a successful stay with us, he/she needs to be up to date on shots, including being current on rabies vaccine. We also accept titer tests. In addition, we have trees and grass on our property, so your dog will need to be protected against ticks and fleas. This is also a requirement if you want your dog to be part of our pack hikes.
