At The Pet Mahal, your pet will be well cared for by our dedicated and trained staff. Our goal is to create safe, supervised and fun-filled days with plenty of toys and play equipment. Pets love to come and play and their owners can confidently place their trust in our standards of care. Our six-separate back outdoor areas are equipped with artificial turf with NO dangerous infill, wading pools and various climbing toys. The grounds are kept impeccably clean and fresh. Each guest is assessed to determine what style of play they have so they are matched with "friends" that complement their individual style, size and personality.

An Assessment is required prior to 1st time Daycare. What is an assessment? A full assessment is an evaluation that takes 5 to 6 hours that introduces your pet to other humans, food, toys, barriers and play with other dogs to determine whether they are a good fit for open play. If they are at ease, then they are assessed as to what groups they fit best with for safety and social growth. The day of daycare and the assessment cost is $32.

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.

"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!"
