Escape the Crate

Welcome to Escape the Crate! We are passionate about dogs.

We promise to deliver a safe, sparkling clean, and friendly environment that your dog will want to visit time and time again and you will trust every time!

At Escape the Crate, our guests receive plenty of human contact, affection, and activity to keep each and every dog relaxed, fulfilled, and satisfied.

Daycare is healthy for dogs of all ages. Playing and socializing with others in our indoor play area, with special flooring and our large outdoor play area, will provide your dog with a fun, safe, and stimulating day.

Our programs are designed with our clients in mind. We factor in your schedule and specific goals to create the perfect program for you and your dog. Our training programs include your choice of on-leash or off-leash options.


Your dog will luxuriate in our full spa service. This includes a sudsy deep cleaning bath, a blow dry, a furminator brush out, a soothing ear cleanse, nail trim, and our cucumber melon facial scrub.

Our team at Escape the Crate is dedicated to making your pet happy during their time with us. As Boise’s best dog boarding facility, we have created an exciting atmosphere for your dog. Learn about all the activities your dog can participate in.

What to Expect

Convenience at Its Best

We now have two locations in the Treasure Valley to come play, learn, and relax with us!

A Balanced Stay

Learning and growing are essential for us to always give your dog balance so he or she can blossom.

Feels like Home

We offer premier lodging, daycare, and spa services tailored to meet your dog’s unique personality.

Unmatched Service

We are not your typical “dog kennel” that believes dogs are a “one size fits all.” We have succeeded in setting ourselves apart by providing your dog with a nurturing, structured, and educational environment.

Comfort & Care

We only take a certain number of dogs daily to keep the groups small and specialized.

Meet & Greet

If your dog will be participating in group play, we require a Meet & Greet. Call to schedule reservations.

Our certified Pet Tech Instructors will teach you the skills and techniques of pet first aid, which can mean the difference between life and death for pets.

Because we care about your pet, all staff at Escape Canine Retreat & Spa have completed an intensive group-play training course, developed by The Dog Gurus.
