If you live in the Allentown, Bethlehem or Easton, PA area and planning on heading out of town, Leader of the Pack Canine Institute offers a place to keep your dog happy and healthy while you are away. Our highly trained team will give personalized attention to your dog, ensuring our guest is comfortable and happy. All of our boarded dogs are able to enjoy a full day of fun and play at our doggy day care before retiring for the night. We provide a comforting home away from home for all of our guests. If you are looking for a pet sitting or dog boarding service that will ensure your pet is happy and comfortable, contact Leader of the Pack Canine Institute today!
Please wait 24 hours after applying flea and tick treatments before bringing your pet for group boarding.
A 4 hour temperament evaluation is required if your pet has taken a 6 month or longer hiatus from LOPCI’s Daycare or Boarding program’s. If your pet has not been in day care or boarding for a time frame of 6 months or longer, a slow introduction back into the pack may be required. Evaluations cost $16 and slow introductions cost $10. These appointments must be scheduled before bringing your pet in for their boarding stay. If your pet qualifies for needing an evaluation or slow introduction and you fail to call and schedule it in a timely manner, private accommodations may be required and additional fees may be incurred. Please call 610-366-8282 if you think your pet has not been in daycare or boarding within the last 6 months. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this as we strive to keep all of our canine guests safe, happy and healthy.
Dog boarding is an extension of LOPCI Day Care services and includes regular day care services to all dogs spending the night. Our overnight guests have several options for their sleeping comfort. We want your pet to feel at home and stay over in an atmosphere that keeps them in their routine. LOPCI can safely crate your pet in an appropriately sized crate if you prefer. We also offer private quarters for comfort and safety in cage-free BOARDING ROOMS WITH BEDS. Daily walks are available as an option for all overnight stays. All of the dogs in our care get special personal attention from our staff. Both weekday and weekend bookings are available. Our guests enjoy a full day of free play each day before retiring for the night, so not to worry…they’re still running with the pack! If you are in the Easton, Allentown or Bethlehem, PA area, contact us today for more information!
(IF YOUR DOG COMES IN WITH FLEA AND TICK TREATMENTS APPLIED IN LAST 24 HOURS AND STILL WET, THEY WILL BE PRIVATE FOR 24 HOURS – EXTRA RATES AND FEES MAY APPLY).
