Due to COVID-19, The Pet Inn is open for limited grooming appointments only.


Vaccination Requirements

Pets must be up to date on required vaccinations before they can tour or stay at our facility. For the protection of our visitors, staff and guests, vaccines must be current or administered two weeks prior to your pet’s stay. We require valid proof of vaccinations before your pet can come for a grooming appointment or stay at The Pet Inn. Remember, if you don't have a regular Veterinarian, VCA Mueller Pet Medical Center can vaccinate your pets, too. You can fax current records to (916) 231-9957, attention: The Pet Inn, or ask us and we’ll have your Veterinarian fax them directly to us.

Did you know that pets can share a cold just like kids at school? But Vaccines, like Bordetella, protect dogs against one cold in particular; Canine Cough.

Some diseases are even Zoonotic, which means you can get them from your pets. Did you know that Rabies and Leptospirosis are both Zoonotic diseases? Well you can protect your family, two and four legged alike, just by vaccinating!

Vaccines go to work immediately, but the body can take weeks to build up enough anti-bodies to protect against any real exposure to illness. To maximize your pet’s protection it’s a good idea not to socialize them with other pets or expose them to high traffic facilities (such as the pet store, dog park, groomers, etc…) until after this 2-week incubation period.

We require the following vaccination protection for guests that wish to lodge with us:

For Canines: Distemper & Parvo, Leptospirosis, Bordetella, Canine Influenza, and Rabies.
For Felines: FVRCP and Rabies.

For guests visiting our grooming department, the above mentioned vaccines are strongly encouraged, but Rabies is a must.

There are absolutely no breed restrictions for lodging or group play. However, wolf-hybrids or other species mixed with dog or cat are not permitted.

To Enroll in Group Play

Dogs must first pass a temperament screening, performed by our trained staff. A passing grade is given to any dog who demonstrates behavior that is conducive to a fun day of play with multiple canines. Groups are hand selected each day, to match dogs that we feel are best suited for one another. For example; some dogs play hard and need a buddy who can keep up, while others are quite mellow and need a friend who knows the limits. Group play is designed to allow our dogs to socialize, exercise and entertain one another. Handlers use a combination of positive reinforcement and operant conditioning to reward good behavior and eliminate unwanted behavior. Intact canines cannot attend group play.

We are open 7am-7pm, seven days a week (closed for pick-up and drop-offs during major holidays).

Boarding Reservations

Every lodging reservation requires a deposit of $50.00 or more. The Pet Inn requires a one week notice in cases of cancellation to avoid forfeiting the deposit. All charges incurred during your pet's stay are due the day of check-out.

Call us directly at (916) 428-9213 or if you prefer, overnight lodging reservations can be requested online. Making reservations online does not guarantee a spot for your dog or cat at The Pet Inn, but if you drop us a line, we will get back to you regarding our availability and accommodations. Just fill out the form below and hit the submit button. We will reply within 24 hours to book your pet’s reservation.

Guests must have a completed Pet Lodging Agreement Form and Pet Health Care Agreement Form on record before they can stay their first night at The Pet Inn. Just print, fill them out and bring them with you at the time of check-in.
