Animal Daycare & Boarding specializes in providing your dog Freedom, Fun and Exercise! 

Our dog boarding services are unique to Anchorage.  Dog boarding traditionally keeps dogs apart from each-other, most or all of the time.  We differ than other places in town because we have a very open environment, so dogs are free to run and play together, all day long!  Animal Daycare & Boarding (AD&B) offers dogs FREEDOM, FUN & EXERCISE!  We are different because we are smaller and we run our business out of our home.  We are different because we are here 24/7, so your dogs are not alone all night, without anyone on site, if there is an emergency.  Here at Animal Daycare & Boarding dogs do not get confused about their potty-training because they have a large indoor and outdoor space and are free to run outside to go to the bathroom whenever they want and are not forced to go inside.  We are different in that our prices are more reasonable.  We are different in that we do not keep your dog waiting for you in a crate the whole time you are away.  We are different because we do not charge you extra money for your dog to get some play time with other dogs.  We are different because we currently allow male intact dogs even though it sometimes creates problems.  We are different because we believe most dogs are better off being social with other dogs than sitting alone waiting for your return.

Because we are different not all dogs belong here.  We only accept dogs without a history of dog fighting, we do not want aggressive or dominant dogs here, it is too easy for them to get into trouble and vet bill costs go back to customers. 

Because we are different we are not the best choice for some customers.  Ask yourself if you want your dog to spend time with other dogs, doing what dogs do: running, barking, jumping, digging, playing, peeing and maybe even fighting.  Please realize dogs in open settings, interacting with each-other, can go too far when playing and sometimes they get into fights.  It is our job to supervise dogs; we watch them and get to know them and their temperaments.  We try to see problems between dogs before they arise but even playing dogs can bite each-other and end up fighting.  We end dog fights as fast as we can but sometimes dogs hurt each other.  If you want a 100% guarantee that your dog will not get scratched or a dog bite, then this is not the right place for you.  If you are okay with the risks of dogs being dogs and you have a dog who is non aggressive please contact us!

Please look at the other pet care businesses before coming to tour our place. Compare our rates, indoor and outdoor spaces and dog play time to the other places in town.  Our first priority is to the pets we care for.  Our second priority is to run a business we are proud of.  We love Animal Daycare & Boarding, it is our life’s work and we want to share it with you. Please come visit us, so you can see for yourself how we are set up and how we care for your pet and give your dog FREEDOM, FUN & EXERCISE!

We give your pets the care we want for our pets!

DogHatchers_Pass_Sept_2009_003Please let me introduce ourselves.  I'm April Warwick and my partner is William Smith.  I've lived in Alaska all of my life; William has been here since 1974.  We both have always enjoyed animals.  I consider myself an Animal Advocate in that I work to better the lives of animals.  Over the years I have rescued: dogs, cats, a green-wing macaw, a blue and gold macaw, a box turtle, and a snapping turtle.  William grew up on a farm & has experience raising horses, cows, pigs, possums, pigeons, dogs, & cats.  We are are natural animal lovers and have years of experience working with animals.  Animal Daycare & Boarding has been a dream of mine for a long time; we started making it come true in late 2006 and opened in January 2007.  We have taken dog training classes and are Red Cross Canine CPR and First Aid certified.
