Food, Medication & Supplements
Ensuring the health & safety of your pet(s) is our top priority. To do so effectively, it is crucial to provide us with written instructions for any medications your pup may require during their stay. This is particularly important because dosages can vary from what is stated on the medication bottle, and having clear, written instructions helps us administer the correct dosage.
Bedding, Toys & Treats
We want to assure you that we have all the necessary resources in-house to provide top-notch care for your pups. However, we understand that some pet owners may have specific preferences or items they'd like to bring along for their furbabies! You are more than welcome to bring your own items to make your pup feel even more comfortable during their stay with us.
Ready For Your Pups First Stay?
Bringing items that carry your scent or remind your pup(s) of home, such as a dirty t-shirt, sock, towel, or old shoe/slipper, can provide comfort & familiarity. Additionally, providing a "busy toy" like a marrow bone, Kong, antler, or their favorite toy can keep them engaged & mentally stimulated. These thoughtful touches from home can go a long way in making your pet(s) feel secure & content.
Introducing your dog to our boarding facility with a trial visit (whether dayboarding or an overnight) is an excellent idea, and here are some reasons why it can benefit both you & your pup:
1. Familiarity & Adjustment Period: Dogs thrive on routine, and being in a new environment can be overwhelming for them. A trial visit allows them to become acquainted with our facility & our staff, making the transition to a longer stay smoother & less stressful.
2. Separation Anxiety Relief: Some dogs can experience stress & anxiety when separated from their owners. A trial visit provides a shorter separation period, allowing your dog to learn that you will return for them, reducing their stress levels during extended stays.
3. Build Positive Associations: Positive experiences during the trial visit help your pup associate our boarding facility with feelings of safety, comfort, and even excitement! This positive association can make future, longer stays more tolerable.
