Welcome to Great River Pet Center

Rooms and Suites


Our prices are "per night" just like a people hotel. This
means that you will not be charged for two days if your
pet stays with us for just one night. So, when you drop your dog off you can drop them off in the morning, when you pick them up, you can pick them up in the evening, and there is no daycare charge.

* All out guests receive outside exercise THREE times a day - 7am, 1pm, and 7pm.
* All guests are served according to their owner's specifications. We can provide Solid Gold Hund'n Flocken, Sundancer, and Wee Bits, at the cost of $1.00 per total cup served. However, we encourage owners to bring their pet's own food. It can be stressful enough to be away from home and family, and changing their diet can cause upset tummies.
* Access to fresh, clean water at all times
* Entire facility has central heat and air conditioning
* Kennels Have solid walls so all dogs can have their privacy
* Sprinkler system and smoke alarms
* 24-hour security system connected with the Oakdale police and fire departments.

Immunization requirements

The following vaccinations must be current prior to boarding your dog:

* Rabies
* Distemper/Parvo Combo
* Bordetella: This is very important, because there is a chance that the dog could react to the vaccine, and it can take up to 10 days for this to happen. The shot is similar to the human flu shot, on a rare occation a dog will react to it, much like we can sometimes react to the flu shot.

It does not prevent the dog from getting Bordetella, but it does assist in them not getting it, and helps to keep the dog from getting as sick from it if it does get Bordetella.

We cannot board dogs who do not have the Bordetella vaccine, but as long as you make sure they get it, if it is done before the 10 day period, we can board the dog as long as you sign a waiver.


When making your dog's reservation, please be prepared to bring the vaccination records with you.

Or you can have your vet fax them to us at our fax number: 651-773-6517
