Late Pick up “Daycare fee” charge prompting 2 hours earlier

Hi all,

Since opening in 2006, a term we refer to as “daycare fee”, has usually triggered at 3pm time every day. For 17 years we charge boarding service by the night. We have allowed a dog that is boarding here to have a free day of daycare play up until 3pm on their departure day. A standard $20 fee had incurred if your dog is picked up after 3pm. It has been understood that this is a very generous option that has helped customers not be so pressured to race up to Lake Stevens to avoid a later pick up charge. We are now changing this rule to 1pm. The new charge will be $25. Most dogs have had a significant daycare exercise day even by 1pm when they generally start romping around about 8am or 9am so we feel that its still very well worth the price while also allowing plenty of time for a customer to arrive before this time. This new change will go into effect May 1st, 2023.

Just a reminder!!

***Currently we are only accepting bookings from past and present established customers. If you have boarded your dog (past or present) at Arcadia, please inquire about availability via email, phone, or contact form. This includes all customers that have visited all the way back to 2006*** Updated 8/6/23

We no longer have a fax service

Arcadia will be closing its fax service option due to it being outdated, and frankly, only used legitimately 5 times over the last 2 years. Arcadia does not send any outgoing faxes and we mostly receive spam and the occasional (human) birth certificate from Los Angeles due to our fax number being only one number different from a hospitals fax number in Southern California. So, for the sake of faxing being useless for us and to protect any more mishaps from happening, the fax service is being eliminated. Huge blow to our communications capabilities. We suggest emailing future information to us at or bringing hard copy paperwork to us in person.

Arcadia is still not accepting new customers at this time.

Recently we have had an influx of inquiries pertaining to the acceptance of new dogs being allowed to join the ranch. We are currently not accepting new dogs at this time. Our Dog Ranch News column will be updated when the time comes. Thank you.

Third Party Coupons

If anybody comes across any third party online coupons, they are fake and are not accepted here.

No longer accepting referrals of any kind as of 2/21/22

And just like that, our referral enrollment time is over due to amount of new referral inquiries received between Feb 2nd and Feb 21st. If you are reading this and you inquired between this timeframe and have received direct contact via email or phonecall from me, your dog(s) are still accepted to book dates at Arcadia after we set up an initial orientation. Check your junk folder! I responded to a couple customers that were referrals but I never heard back from them. I will hold your invitation for 2 weeks, after that I will assume you are no longer interested.

Construction activity will be present off and on mostly over the next 2.5 months – Please excuse any unsightly conditions when approaching the entrance.

Over the course of the whole year, actually, improvements will be made to the property and ranch. Arcadia is upgrading and also adding more features over the course of 2022. These actions will not directly affect the operations functions, but may inhibit our ability to maintain a normal capacity as some rooms and areas will be getting improved at the time rendering the areas temporary off limits.

Price increase starting in March 2022

Arcadia has hit its 16 year anniversary in March! When we raise our prices on March 1st, please note the we will still be on the lower side with our rates compared to similar boarding facilities. Some traditional kennels may have lower boarding rates, though the add-on services often end up being more expensive than our all inclusive pricing overall. When March arrives, 1 dog rate will be $50/night and 2 dogs will be $45/dog/night.

Christmas week is booked until December 29th/New Years timeframe space available for established customers ONLY.

Arcadia is a dedicated boarding facility only. We do not offer a daily daycare service.

Howdy folks, we are sorry to notify everyone that Arcadia does not offer a daily daycare service. We haven’t offered daily daycare since about 2012. We are a dedicated boarding facility that provides day play on the ranch for boarders only. A boarding only operation helps regulate the energy levels and maintain the settled in pups that are here for a consistent safe and calming environment.
