What services does NEST offer for my dog, cat or exotic pet? 

Day Boarding

Our day boarding service is perfect for dogs and cats that just need a day out of the house to relax!

Our three neighborhoods (The Live Oaks, The Elms or The Tree House) all offer glass-front, posh and spacious runs for overnight dog boarding. They each feature elevated beds, soft bedding, music and hypoallergenic dishes. 

Includes afternoon dog daycare activities and medication administration (if needed). 

The Magnolias is the enhanced version of overnight dog boarding with a private enclosed suite, featuring an elevated bed, plush bedding, soft blankets, a raised platform shelf to observe the activities or nap, clinically proven dog relaxing music, and individual televisions set to their favorite station. Dog boarding suites available with interior or exterior view.

Overnight Cat Boarding

Overnight Cat Nesting in a private NESTominium (our version of cat boarding) in Kitty Arbor, a light-filled neighborhood designed for peace of mind for our cat guests. This space is entirely enclosed and separate from other noisy NESTers. We are proud to follow the guidelines of the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Certified Cat Friendly Practices, including utilizing Feliway pheromone plug-ins to ease stress. 

Overnight Exotic Pet Boarding

In the Forest neighborhood, your exotic pets will board in this sunshine bathed space with their own enclosures from home where they are most comfortable, with their regular food and their own heating elements (if needed). The Forest is separate from other cat and dog boarding areas to promote calm for your exotic pets while they are boarding with us at NEST.
