We offer a wide range of spaces tailored to meet the specific needs of our furry campers. Whether it's for a good night's rest or some downtime, we've got you covered. Our park area features cozy "cabins" for overnight stays, while Erwinn's Lodge offers a comfortable cabin-style living-room experience to soothe any separation anxiety your dog may have. Please view boarding requirements for more information. 

Overnight Boarding

General boarding for all pups offers a full day of play, belly rubs and fun. After a fulfilling day, our campers enjoy a meal from home and a cozy space to call their own. All supplies, including bowls, beds and blankets are provided so just plan on bringing individually packaged meals from home. 

Many of our campers enjoy a trail hike add on during their stay or full service grooming before heading back home.

    Yes, with instructions regarding the medication we can administer it at no additional cost.

    It depends! Every hike has 1-2 park rangers (hikers), and they each have between 3-5 dogs each. Numbers vary based on available transport space.
  • What trails do you go on?
    Our hikers use a variety of trails through the Hayward and Castro Valley area. The trails they pick are based off many things such as the proximity to clients, weather and type of hike.
  • Will my dog be off leash?
    We have certain dogs that are cleared to be off leashed. We take off leash privileges very serious and have strict guidelines on how dogs can get there. Otherwise, ALL dogs are to be on leash.

Workindoggz strives to create a positive experience for our campers and their families. We are proud to treat our pack like family. For this reason we have a screening process for our boarding services to ensure we're the best fit for your pet. After submitting an inquiry request, if your pup seems like good fit we will reach out to schedule a meet and greet. The process can take an estimated 1-3 weeks. In the mean time, please review our boarding requirements. 


Boarding requirements

It's important to us that your furry camper is comfortable, safe and healthy during their stay. To ease the transition and help create a home away from home, we require a few things:

  • Up to date vaccines including DHPP, Rabies, and Bordetella. Influenza is highly recommended along with current flea, tick and heart worm medication.

  • Campers over the age of 8 months must be spayed or neutered

  • All new pups must pass a meet and greet prior to their stay. In addition, prior to boarding it is HIGHLY recommended that your pup be familiar with our daycare with a couple days under their belt prior to an overnight stay. 

  • For stays less than 7 days, we ask that you individually package your pups meals (no need to label the bags unless each meal is different).

    • Please DO NOT include MEDICATION in the prepackaged bags. Our team takes great care to ensure proper administration, so please bring medications separately. ​SUPPLEMENTS can be included in prepackaged bags.

    • For stays longer than 7 days, please ensure you have enough food for their stay in an appropriate sized container.

  • Plan on dropping off your pup with their food. We will supply all beds, bowls, toys, blankets, and fun. If there is a need to bring personal belongings, please let us know ahead of time and we will try to accommodate those belongings. If your pup has a food allergy, please bring a personal food scooper if food is not individually packaged.

  • If your pup was registered with general boarding but they are not transitioning well, we will try to do everything to make them feel comfortable. Some pups are candidates for our sleeper buddy service. If that is the case, your pup will be registered for our sleeper buddy service for the following boarding stay. 

Thank you for your help in creating a home away from home for your camper!
