What are the shot requirements?

Doggie guests are required to be up to date on shots: (Rabies, Distemper combination and Bordetella (Internasal Spray) should be given to dogs at least 10 days prior to boarding and as a yearly shot.)

What if I need to drop off my dog before business hours?

Over the years we have learned that many people have emergencies that require us to take care of you at different times. We are happy to accommodate the unexpected, please contact us.  

How often is my dog outside?

We take your dog out individually 3 to 4 times a day, talk to your dog by name, pet them and hug them. The duration your dog is out depends on the weather. Our goal is to play and help release their excess energy and love them up so they feel comfortable.

What if my dog isn't eating?

If your pet needs extra care well make sure extra steps are taken to ensure they eat, we have even fried up an egg for one of our doggie guests ~ free.

Can I bring my dog's food from home or other items like toys or a bed?

“You can bring whatever makes your dog happy, from dishes (no ceramic) to treats and toys.

**Please do not bring beds, heavy blankets, or comforters, as they do not fit in our washing machines and we provide Kuranda beds**
