FAQs

Your pets’ health and safety is our top priority. We’ve integrated extra disinfection and sanitation routines into our already rigorous cleaning protocols. 

Rest assured, we are actively monitoring for any dogs displaying symptoms as they enter our facilities, as well as those staying with us.

Key symptoms to monitor include lethargy, runny eyes and nose, coughing and sneezing, or loss of appetite. Should any of these symptoms manifest, kindly keep your dog at home, contact your veterinarian, and notify us so that we can continue ensuring the well-being of your pup as well as all the other dogs under our care. 

We provide hands-on care and accommodations for your dog while you’re away. We offer personalized activities and enrichment add-ons, and room service options to ensure your pup is well taken care of and having fun! Our canine guests usually adapt well and enjoy the wonderful experience of being part of our family. If you have any concerns, you can stop by during business hours for a tour of our facility!

Reservations are required for boarding and do require a 50% deposit upon booking. The remaining 50% is collected upon check-in. Holiday weekends we always recommend advanced booking as we do get filled up rather quickly! We know life can happen and we don’t always have time to plan in advance. Should an emergency arise, we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

All appointments (boarding, daycare, and grooming) must be up-to-date on vaccines. The following are required, no exceptions: Rabies, DHPP (Distemper/Parvo) and Bordetella (kennel cough).

We do recommend Canine Influenza and being current on flea/tick prevention as well. Proof of vaccination from your veterinarian is required prior to your dog being checked in. If you do not have medical records or a print-out from your vet, we can email them in advance of your appointment, or we can call them to obtain the verification.

If your dog is being vaccinated for Canine Influenza or Bordetella for the first time, we require the initial vaccine to be given at least one week (7 days) prior to your dog’s visit with us.

It is your responsibility to provide vaccine records for your dog that meet our requirements. Please upload vaccine records to your Customer Portal.

We are required by the county to have the image of the vaccine record in your portal.

If you are having trouble uploading, you can bring your records in person and we can upload them for you.

The Canine Influenza (H3N2) is a two-part vaccine. We can accept your dog one week (7 days) after the first vaccine, if you sign our waiver.

If your pet should require medical attention while in our care, we make every attempt to contact you or your emergency contact. If we are unable to reach you, our customary procedure is to contact your veterinarian. All charges incurred will be your responsibility. If it is an emergency, we will take your pet to the closest veterinarian.

No! There’s no limit. We will take care of your pet as long as you need it. We’ve had dogs stay for longer than 30 days even!

The purpose of enrichment is to reduce stress in dogs and to reinforce socialization practices. Providing a dog with enrichment allows the animal to have a sense of control over their environment, which can help reduce and avoid stress.
