​Our Services

Daycare & Boarding



Welcome to Tale of the Dog Boarding & Daycare. We are located just 300 feet off Poway Road, on your way in or out of town. We offer quick and easy drive up drop-off and pick-up.

Whether your dog is joining us for Daycare or Boarding, our ranch is the perfect place for the optimum amount of play, exercise and rest each day. Rain or shine, your dog will experience a day of personal attention and companionship in a healthy, caring atmosphere.

Since our focus is to create a safe, fun environment where your pet can have a positive experience, we accept only well-behaved, spayed/neutered dogs who are at least 9 months old.

Boarding at Tale of the Dog is not like boarding at any other dog kennel. We offer short term and long term dog boarding vacations. Your dog will experience a truly peaceful, fun and relaxing stay at our beautiful ranch.


We focus on what your pet enjoys. Whether it’s romp time with other guests, a game of fetch or one-on-one time with staff, we gauge your pet’s energy level and offer appropriate activities.
