Boarding Requirements

Because diseases spread in confined and shared spaces, we require our guests to be healthy and free of contagious diseases. We require proof of vaccination or we can perform necessary vaccines. A comprehensive physical examination at least annually for vaccination as we feel strongly that regular complete examinations are even more important than vaccinations to maintain your pet’s good health. Vaccines are most effective if given several days ahead of time. If these services are required, please schedule an appointment before boarding date (ideally 48 hours before).

  • Current on Rabies vaccination: (within 1 year for dogs under 2 years old, within 3 years for dogs over 2 years). Cats annual Rabies required.

  • Fleas spread quite readily from pet to pet. We take every precaution to minimize the risk of fleas. If fleas are found on your pet upon admission or during your pet’s stay, we will give safe, effective flea control. There is a fee for this service. We strongly advise that all pets staying with us to be on monthly safe and effective flea control given prior to their stay.

Bathing/grooming:

While we do everything possible to keep your pet clean and sanitary, sometimes bathing before going home is required. If your pet is with us for more than one week, we highly recommend regular (daily) brushing and a bath before going home. If here for a longer stay, grooming /cleanup baths are strongly advised at least every 2 weeks along with regular brushing. This is for your pet’s comfort and to prevent skin problems. If you wish to schedule a grooming appointment with one of our groomers, we strongly advise filling out the grooming sheet before leaving your pet or discussing your requests with our groomer in person.

Boarding Check-in/Pick up: From 7-5 weekdays and 7-2 on Saturdays and Sundays. To reduce wait time, email/fax vaccination records ahead of time and have written instructions prepared if your pet has any specific needs.
