Pet Boarding

We offer stunning accommodations for your pet at our facility in Amarillo, TX, so that they feel comfortable and safe while you’re away. Welcome to your pet’s new home away from home. Your pet’s overnight boarding includes your pet’s normal feeding schedule, indoor and outdoor playtime, a comfortable raised bed, and a lot of love.

While your pet is boarding we reinforce good manners like sitting before meals and before a door is opened.


We encourage you to bring your pet’s own diet in pre-measured and labeled containers (i.e. Ziploc bags) to prevent gastrointestinal troubles while boarding. Changes in diet combined with stress can cause diarrhea, vomiting, and lethargy.

  • If you do choose to feed our in-house diet, it costs $2.00/meal.
  • We feed Hills gastrointestinal diets for dogs and cats to minimize any potential problems.
  • Meals Plus: We also provide the option to ‘enrich’ your pet’s meals by feeding in puzzle feeders and other games. This makes mealtime more interesting and helps prevent boredom. Enriched mealtime is an additional $5 per day if elected.
  • Treat Bar: We are happy to provide your dog or cat snacks during their stay. We provided a treat bar with a variety of types and flavors. Fill your bag for $5 and we’ll feed it during their stay. Any leftovers will be sent home with you.
Enrichment Program

Day & Overnight boarding have separate indoor and outdoor playtime than our enrichment program guests. If you would like your pet to be a part of group play, they must pass a behavior evaluation and there is an additional cost to boarding if they are a part of the enrichment program (discounted from our regular enrichment charge). If your pet does not pass the behavioral evaluation, they are still welcome to board, but will not be allowed to participate in group play. Please see our behavioral evaluation form for more information.

What happens if my pet is injured or ill?
  • We take every precaution to prevent injury and illness. This is why we require the vaccines, testing, preventatives, behavioral evaluation, and recommendations regarding the diet that we do.
  • In the event your pet is acting in any way abnormal (coughing, sneezing, lethargy, diarrhea, frequent urination, limping, etc., you will be contacted immediately and the pet will be brought to Swann Animal Clinic (next door) for an examination and any approved treatment.
  • All pet owners must read and sign our Boarding and Enrichment Agreement. This document also provides additional details regarding our policies on injuries and illness.

Pet Daycare

What is “Play” at Sidekicks Stay & Play? It’s far more than a bunch of dogs running around in a yard. It is indoor and outdoor playtime, refereed by our highly skilled staff and enriched with activities. This helps your dog exercise their muscles, and their brains.

Play can include many different activities from water games to obstacle courses in group dog play. It could also be one-on-one time doing activities like puzzle feeders, scavenger hunts, and bubble time.

Science has shown that a dog who spends 15 minutes performing activities that stimulate their brain is equivalent to an hour of physical activity.

Enrichment Program
  • Our enrichment program is Monday-Friday 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • Check-In is between 7:00 am and 9:00 am
  • Pick-up is between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm
  • All dogs must pass a behavioral evaluation to participate in group play.
  • We have monthly packages available for dogs who come to our enrichment program more than once a week and it is also available at a discounted rate for dogs who are boarding.
