Professional Care and Boarding for Your Dog

Effective May 20, 2021, Cape Cod Pet Resort will be owned and operated by Dogs for Better Lives.

A letter from our director

Dear Clients,

Effective May 19, 2021, Cape Cod Pet Resort will be owned and operated by Dogs for Better Lives. Dogs for Better Lives (DBL) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that professionally trains dogs to help people and enhance lives while maintaining a lifelong commitment to all dogs we rescue or breed and the people we serve. To learn more about DBL, please visit our website at

We are working closely with Cape Cod Pet Resort to ensure a smooth transition of ownership with as little disruption to our clients and their pets as possible. DBL is committed to providing a safe and relaxed atmosphere for your pet and will continue to offer boarding and daycare services. Existing boarding and daycare staff will be staying on and continue to provide the best quality of care for your pet.

If your pet is staying with us during the ownership transition on May 18th, there will be no interference in their care and the only noticeable change will be two separate billing charges to compensate for the days split between the ownership.

Hours and protocols will mostly remain the same:
– Effective May 19th, we will no longer offer cat boarding.
– All boarding clients will need to provide food for each meal of their dog’s stay although Blackwood dog food will be available on site for purchase.
– Rates will remain the same along with COVID protocols.
– Due to a staffing shortage, we are unable to offer Saturday daycare at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience!
– Daycare playtime will remain the same length of time Monday-Friday with run time from 9am-11:30am and 1:30pm to 4pm:
o Drop off for daycare is between 7:30am and 10:00am
o Pick up for daycare is between Noon and 2pm for half day and between 4:00pm and 5:30pm for full day

– Boarding Hours:
o Drop off and pick up Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm
o Any pick up appointments after 11:00am will be charged for an additional night.

– Front door & phones will be open during the below periods.
o Monday through Friday: 8am to 5pm
o Saturday & Sunday: 9am to 10am and 3pm to 4pm

We will also be completing some modifications to the facility including the installation of artificial turf in all of our outdoor play areas!

Projects will be completed in phases to ensure minimal disruption to our services. We look forward to working with you and your pet! If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 508-564-4088 or email

Dog Boarding

Doggie Daycare

Dog Cam Live


“This is by far the most wonderful place for our dogs! We are very picky when it comes to boarding our dogs and have tried numerous places over the years. From the staff to the facility, this place is an A+. We can rest assure and enjoy our vacations knowing our boys are being taken care of. We travel an hour plus each way to board our dogs when we have facilities 5 minutes away. If you haven’t tried this place, it is a MUST! From daycare to boarding to their extra treats, this place is phenomenal!!”

Lonnie Toli,Pet Owner

“Great place and awesome staff. They were very accommodating while my family and I were on vacation at the Cape last month, as we brought our dog with us. If I go to the Cape again with our dog, we’ll definitely use the resort.”
