Current  Rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella vaccinations are required for boarding.  All vaccinations are required to be administered at least 7 days prior to boarding.  North Carolina law does not permit any exemptions or exclusions from the rabies vaccination.  Please call the North Carolina Department of Health for any questions regarding the rabies vaccination.

Kennel Cough - We encourage you speak to your veterinarian to learn about this respiratory illness that is common when dogs are in a communal setting such as boarding, day care, training, dog parks, grooming salons, veterinarian visits, even walks with mom and dad.  Kennel cough can even be brought into your home by being carried on someone's clothing.

Click HERE for information from Ocean Sands K-9 Resort.   We do not accept guests for care who are visibly coughing.  Unfortunately, a guest can have asymptomatic kennel cough and we have no way of knowing they are contagious.

Your K-9's Vacation

Outside Play Time

Our guests enjoy supervised outside play time with our staff.  We use an individual play model to insure the safety of our guests.  We understand boarding can sometimes be stressful on the furbaby's in our care and we prefer that our guests are able to enjoy themselves without the worry of injury from another guest.


During your furry family members stay, you are welcome to pick up and drop off as much as you like 9a-4:30p. You are welcome in the kennel area as long as you have signed a Kennel Access Authorization.  Please click HERE to view and download the form.  Please download and submit the form with your boarding paperwork, bring it with you at check in, or fill them out at check in.  Everyone in your party that wants access to the kennel restricted area needs to have an authorization on file.

We also have 4 secure play yards available if you would prefer to hang out  here and enjoy some time together.  The play yards are available Noon-1p Monday - Saturday for you to use.

Appointments are never needed to visit, or pick up and drop off during office hours.

Field Trips

During field trips, remember drinking Ocean Water, eating Sand and  Critters may cause digestive isses.  

Your pet may also encounter Sand Spurs which may get caught in their fur, or in the paw pads.

Remember to give your pet lots of fresh water and shade.  And never leave your pet in a car.

Pets who are not returned during office hours can be brought in the following day during office hours unless prior arrangements for after hours drop off has been made.​  There is an additional charge for services after office hours.
