Dog Boarding Packages
Calculation of Dog Boarding Rates
The day of check-in is billed as a full day of boarding, regardless of arrival time. The day of check-out is free until check-out time at 12 noon. After noon, the day will be billed as a full day of boarding.
Your Dogs Medications
Your pet’s health is our first priority. We never charge for administering medications, and someone is always available to administer insulin injections. Just bring us your pet’s medications in their original packaging, and clear instructions from your vet. Don’t forget; make sure your pet’s first and last name are on all of his belongings!
Toys From Home
If your dog is particularly attached to a toy, bring it in. Make sure to clearly label all belongings with your name in permanent marker. If you forget to bring a toy, we have plenty of toys in our retail area. Your dog can pick one when he comes in, or select our “room service” option and we’ll let him pick new toys throughout his stay. Dogs are always happier when they have something to do, so we encourage you to bring natural bones and chews for your pet. Unfortunately, we cannot accept raw bones or rawhide for the safety of our guests.
Food From Home
If your dog is on a special diet, we’ll serve food from home for no extra charge. Just make sure the food is prepackaged in zip lock baggies—one for every meal. It may seem tedious, but it helps us maintain a clean and healthy environment, which is definitely worth the trouble. If your food comes in bulk and we package it for you, we’ll charge a convenience fee of $.50 per feeding.
Standard Food Provided
Our Signature Diet is a maintenance kibble with warm water added. Even the pickiest dogs can’t resist the smell of a hot bowl of food! Nutrition information is available upon request.
We require that all dogs are vaccinated for Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordetella. You can bring the records when you check in, or fax them to us at (540) 657-6240.
