Not your average boarding facility

The Four Paws Inn opened in 1996 in Chesapeake, VA. We are a little different than a traditional boarding kennel. Instead of having the dogs in runs, the dogs play together about 6-8 hours a day. If you would like to come and see the facility, visitors are always welcome!

Boarding rates

Small dog           $26.00

"I know it is a great boarding facility when my dog can't wait to get out of the car" - Corrie

Large dog          $30.00

Complimentary bath, nails and ear cleaning with a Monday-Monday, Tuesday-Tuesday (or longer), etc. stay.


Charges are like a hotel stay in that you are charged for the day you drop off, regardless of the time. You are not charged for the day you pick up your dog if you pick up before 12:00 PM.


All Baths include nails and ear cleaning


Small dog    $30.00


Medium dog    $35.00

 - spayed or neutered (if above 6 months)

 - non-aggressive with dogs and people

Be sure to bring the following:

 - your dogs food and treats (we do not supply food) preferably in a resealable container

 - a regular flat buckle or snap collar


We are closed:

New Year's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are only opening a half day the day before Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. We do board dogs at these times, but we are not open to the public.

Doggie daycare

Half day  $15

4 hours or less of playtime

Whole day  $23

Workouts   $20

If your dog has completed the class with us, who in their skills by having us practice with them while they are here for the day

Requirements for daycare are the same as for boarding. There is no after hours service! If your dog is not picked up before we close, your dog would have to stay overnight, and you would have to pay a boarding fee.
