Pet Boarding Tips

 

TIPS ON BOARDING YOUR PET………

MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY!
Holidays and during vacation times are especially busy for us. Don't wait until the last minute to make your reservations, you may be disappointed. Try to book 2 months in advance to assure a reservation for your pet.

PREPARE YOUR PET

Make sure that all immunizations are current and you have that information for us prior to boarding.
Don’t overfeed your pet right before boarding. No food for 4 hrs prior to arrival.
Bring all food in a sealed container, marked with your pet’s name.
Do not bring blankets. We will provide clean bedding.
We prefer you to have your animal leashed upon arrival.
We prefer to place your dog in his or her run. The purpose for this is for your dog to realize that you have entrusted him or her to our care.
Medications should be clearly marked indicating the purpose and dosage instructions. Don’t forget to ask for your medication when your pet leaves.
If your pet suffers from separation anxiety, you may want to arrange for your pet to spend the day with us prior to their stay. This will help give your pet assurance and trust that you are leaving him or her in good hands.


PICKING UP YOUR PET

ASK ABOUT YOUR PETS STAY.
Did your pet adapt well to our routine? Did he or she require any special handling?

DO NOT FEED OR WATER YOUR DOG IMMEDIATELY!
Do not feed or water your dog for at least four hours after returning home. Dogs can become very excited when you return, feeding can cause upset stomachs. Owners who allow their dogs unlimited access to either food or water immediately after returning home sometimes cause vomiting and or/diarrhea. If your dog appears to be thirsty, let them have a few ice cubes instead of water. Ensure the animal has calmed down before offering them food.

YOUR PET MAY SEEM TO SLEEP MORE.
The first few days after returning to your home, your pet may sleep more than they normally would. This is normal after the excitment they have experienced by their "vacation" at the kennel.

AND FINALLY.
Relax, enjoy your trip! Your pet will be well taken care of during their stay.
