Boarding Information

Dog Motel

Happy Tails LLC Dog Motel is located at N2352 Hideaway Ln, Stoddard WI. We are only minutes away from south La Crosse in a beautiful secluded coulee.  

Our goal is to offer a safe and anxiety-free stay for you and your pet.
We provide a clean, comfortable and secure place for your dog to stay without the stress of doggie daycare style boarding. Happy Tails is located at our home- this means there are no long blocks of time when our guests are left unattended. We treat guests as we do our own pack, with lots of attention and love. We have 9 kennels including 3 suites.The suites are located in our home and the kennels are adjacent to our home. The kennels are very comfortable and are heated and air conditioned. We offer 2 fenced exercise areas for play.
We are a very small facility which feels more like home than a boarding kennel. 

Everything is included except food. We do not charge you extra for exercising or loving your dog!
We provide cozy bedding, including cots and doorless crates for those that prefer to den up.
All dishes are provided as well as balls, Kongs,ropes and other toys. We offer guests large wading pools for those hot summer days. Treats are also included if allowed. 

We always room family members together and try to keep everyone on their regular schedule of feeding, outings... Every guest gets one on one play time and attention multiple times daily. Whether your dogs like to play fetch, run off some energy or just hang out we will make sure they are exercised and happy. Guests are allowed as many outings in the exercise areas as they need or want. Each guest gets their own time in the play areas. We do not allow 'doggie daycare' type interaction. If your dog is a couch potato, we will spend time just hanging out with her. Daily walks can also be arranged. 
We welcome guests that have special needs, whether on medication or suffering from arthritis or have other problems, we are happy to accommodate. 

All guests must be up to date with  vaccinations(rabies,distemper/parvo and bordatella) and flea/tick preventative. Documentation is required. 
We request that females be spayed unless being used for breeding. We do not accept intact males (puppies under 12 months who have not yet been neutered are the only exception).
For puppies who are not yet potty trained there will be an extra charge.
Prior to your dog's first stay we encourage you and your dogs to come and visit us. This way you are assured this is the place for your 4 legged family member.

We cannot accept dogs that are aggressive or destructive or have a high prey drive.

We record all guest information including your emergency contact info, veterinarian information and any peculiarities, phobias, likes and dislikes. We try very hard to make this a place your dog will be happy to come to!Please bring enough of your dog's food to last the duration of their stay. Extra food may be a good idea during winter travel as we all know delays can happen during the Upper Midwest winters! Also check to see if they will need any medication or if it is time for Flea& Tick /Heartworm prevention while they are with us and include for us to administer.
In certain circumstances we may be able to provide taxi service for a small fee.  

We now also offer visits to your home to take care of cats or other small animals, if you are within 15 miles from our location.
