All-Suite Sleepovers

Luxury accommodations include climate-controlled private suites with raised beds and cozy bedding. In addition, they will enjoy calming music, soft lighting, relaxing essential oil diffusion, daily housekeeping, and lots of playtime! There is a gated walk into private fenced areas that are covered with artificial turf for outdoor play. Our wading pools and misting system in the summer provide a cool treat to beat the heat!

"An Assessment is required prior to 1st time Boarding. If you have not come for daycare/boarding in over 6 months, a " re-assessment" is required because temperaments change with age. See what is an assessment on daycare page.

We are consistently booked, so we suggest booking well in advance to ensure your pet is cared for during your time away. We can only do so many assessments in one day. Please allow enough time before your reservation for an assessment to be scheduled.

Great place! I highly recommend it! I'm a manager at Charleston Animal Society and this boarding facility is fantastic. Very easy going and they truly connect with your pets when they stay.

A DEFINITELY unique place! Would give 6 stars if we could!

I toured every facility in the area and The Pet Mahal is by far the best!

"Best boarding experience ever (and Danny's first!) I got videos, pictures, texts, every day with updates on how he was doing. Tons of love and affection and interaction with my boy. They treated him as if he were their own. Love this place!!!"


"Mika had her first visit to The Pet Mahal. She highly recommends it to all her four legged friends. Got a facial. Got her nails done. Got her hair cut, combed, and a bow. Met the nicest lady there that runs the place. There is a mini rainbow row for dogs and they have treats too! Just the place for a sweet southern girl to go get pampered. Thanks, and we will be back soon!"
