  • Dog Boarding in Central Maryland and DC

    Unleashed Joy provides a “boutique” dog boarding service. What do we mean by that? For starters, we board a small number of dogs compared to other facilities, and dogs spend most of their time out of crates or pens and interacting with people and other dogs. The owner and lead trainer lives onsite at the Unleashed Joy facility and is able to effectively monitor your dog 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. This leads to lots of personal attention, play time, and cuddling (at no extra charge). We’ve seen some boarding facilities that leave dogs unattended overnight, leave dogs in crates for inordinate amounts of time, and/or charge extra for basics like spending one-on-one time with your dog, providing a treat at night, and other basics of responsible care. At Unleashed Joy, we don’t think of these as “extras.” Instead, we feel that they represent the care that your dog deserves. When your dog is with us, we want his or her stay to be as close to being at home as possible.


    Contact us to set up your dog’s brief, free evaluation (required prior to boarding).

    • Your dog must be at least 12 weeks of age for boarding
    • Your dog must be spayed/neutered by 6 months of age
    • Your dog must be current for DHPP, Rabies, and Bordetella immunization
    • We now highly recommend both CIV vaccines – H3N8 and H3N2
