WE WILL REQUIRE THE FLU VACCINE ON ALL DOGS & BORDATELLA . NO EXCECEPTIONS
Flu Vaccines are required & MUST be given before boarding, we will accept your dog if you at least have the 1st shot. If you do not have both initial shots we will have you sign a waiver.
Rabies- according to your vet’s recommendation (yearly or every 3 years depending on age and circumstances of your dog). We will accept an elderly dog exemption with a veterinary titer.

Tours are given M-Th by appt only. We do not give tours around the holidays, due to the high number of dogs boarding during that time.
What to Bring
All of our overnight guests should bring their own food only enough for the stay measured out & in a large ziplock & any medication needed (see Medication Protocol) . We feed 2 times a day. Please label your dog food bags. Do not not feed peanut butter in the kennel due to allergies. We highly recommend feeding your dog before they arrive in am or pm as most dogs do not eat their first day of arrival. If your dog runs out of food we will notify you & we will provide Victor Premium All Life Stages food at $5 a day extra per dog.
We provide kurana beds & food bowls at no charge. We will not use any beds or blankets that have “stuffing” as this is a choking hazard. We will take a small fleece blanket (no bigger than 2 feet by 4 feet. Only a few hard toys & remember to write your last name on all toys with a sharpie.
All medication provided for your dog MUST be in it’s original container/bottle and will ONLY be given as directed on the bottle. If directions have been altered, a letter from your veterinarian must accompany the medication. Shots can be given at $5 and a waiver must be signed. If you have more than 2 pills per feeding we recommend you pre-package your food with the pills by am & pm in individual baggies or in pill containers.
