Should I bring my dog own food?

We are proud to feed and recommend Super Premium chicken, rice & barley dry food in our kennel. It offers dogs the highest nutritional quality to keep your dog happy and healthy. If your dog is on a specific diet, you may bring your own food. We request you bring your food in a plastic container and only the amount your dog will consume during the reservation. There is NO additional per day fee for this service.

What vaccinations are required?

We require proof that the following vaccinations are current:

  1. Rabies vaccine
  2. Distemper/Parvo vaccine
  3. Bordatella vaccine (also called Kennel Cough)
  4. Negative Heartworm Test and on Preventative
  5. Canine Influenza Vaccine (H3N2 and H3N8 strains)
The Canine Influenza Vaccine must be completed in 2 parts, the initial vaccine and the booster 3-4 weeks later. Both parts need to be administered before boarding.

We do NOT require waiting after vaccinations are given before boarding. However, we recommend allowing 5 to 7 days between any vaccinations given and your dog's drop off date.

Will my dog get exercised every day?

Dogs are let outside individually, into a large fenced area 3 times a day. They are without a leash—but under our supervision.

What should I bring with my dog?

Besides your dog's vaccination record you are not required to bring anything additional. We are not responsible for any items lost or destroyed. We will do our best to see that all items are returned to you, although your dog may have different ideas.
