The Bungalow: Your Dog's Exclusive Getaway
Luxurious and Personalized Dog Boarding in Newton, KS
While most of our furry clients enjoy in-home pet sitting, we offer a truly unique boarding experience for your canine companion at The Bungalow when pet sitting won't do. This one-bedroom, one-bath oasis in Newton, KS is specially designed to host no more than a few dogs at a time, offering an intimate and exclusive environment, complete with all the home comforts your pet knows and loves. From cozy couches to their favorite TV shows, and of course, endless belly rubs—The Bungalow provides a restful retreat away from home.
"I would give more than 5 stars if I could. Not only is the care excellent, but business is great too-- it's so easy to schedule, pay, leave notes, etc. Both times we've used Blue Skies, it's been really last minute due to a death in the family and we were able to schedule, add on days... I could say so many great things about our experience, but I really just want to say THANK YOU!! Such a great business to have in Newton... "

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Do you live at the Bungalow?
A: Yes and no. The Bungalow is the Blue Skies Pet Care HQ and home base. It is a fully furnished home where we spend time with our four-legged guests. Think of it as a BnB for dogs with on-site concierge staff!
Q: What safety precautions do you have?
A: Dogs from different households are allowed to play under supervision only. If we have dogs from multiple households, they are given different areas of the house when left alone. We have smoke alarms that are wifi-enabled to alert us and 911 remotely in case of any problems, as well as cameras both inside and outside of the Bungalow.
Q: Do you offer pickup/delivery?
A: Yes! We will come get your doggo for their vacation! For clients within our service area staying 4+ nights, home taxi is complimentary, too!
Q: When can I drop off and pick my dog up from boarding?
A: Please pre-schedule a time to check your dog in and out of The Bungalow during regular business hours if you do not opt for pickup and delivery from your home.
Q: Are there fees on final days?
A: Pups leaving The Bungalow by 11:00am are half-day fees. Pups leaving The Bungalow after 11:00am are full day fees.

Q: Do you offer baths?
A: Yes, by request, dependent on breed and coat type. We do not offer baths for non-guests.
Q: Do you offer full grooms?
A: Not at this time, no.
Q: Do you have vaccine requirements?
A: Yes. All dogs must be up to date on vaccines.
Q: Do you have flea treatment/preventative requirements?
A: YES. All dogs must be on current flea treatment/preventative.
Q: Are there behavior requirements?
A: Our couch is their couch, so Bungalow guests must be potty trained (with or without the aid of a crate), must not be aggressive. Because we play and cuddle with our guests on and off throughout the day and then stay overnight with them, they must not suffer from destructive separation anxiety when left alone for parts of the day.
Q: What's included?
A: We have a excellent standard of care included for all guests: playtime inside and outside, medication administration, one-on-one cuddle time, etc are all included. If you'd like something for your pup that hasn't been discussed, please ask!
Q: What do you feed while my dog is there?
A: We strongly encourage families to bring their normal food to avoid digestive distress - it's the most common problem for boarding dogs anywhere! Please bring your dog's food in an airtight container, clearly marked with your name and their feeding instructions. Bring no more than a 25# container OR just enough for your stay (plus a few days just in case) for long stays. We don't need their 40# bag if they're just staying the weekend. 🙂 Dogs that don't bring food are provided with Taste of the Wild.
Q: What can I bring to make my dog feel comfortable?
A: Treats are welcome! Beds, crates, and one to two toys are also welcome, but we are not able to guarantee items will return in home in the same condition. Occasionally toys and beds suffer a de-stuffing or similar fate.
Q: Any holiday fees?
$5 per-day holiday fee for boarding on New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Years Eve.
