STAY AND TRAIN
Call and make a reservation as soon as you know your travel plans.
Do you have your pet's vaccination records handy? We need to see them. Without proof of immunizations from your veterinarian, we cannot take your pet. For dogs, required immunizations are bordetella, rabies, distemper, and parvo. **Vaccinations require a five-day post-vaccination waiting period. There is also a five-day wait if your pet has just visited a vet for any reason.**
Don't feed your dog more than usual before the drop-off. This can cause digestive troubles.
It's required that you bring food for your dog's stay. However, for an extra fee, we will provide our own, top-of-the-line food. Please make a notation about this when ordering the service.
You may bring blankets and bedding for your dog. If you choose not to, we provide soft towels that are cleaned every night for your dog's stay.
Do not get too emotional when you drop your pet off. Dogs are attuned to their owner's feelings, and this will create a lot of anxiety for the dog.
We can pick up and drop off your dog for an additional cost.
Your dog will be very excited upon the return home. So be mindful not to over-feed or offer unlimited water for at least four hours after the return. They may eat / drink too quickly, which could make your dog sick.
Don't be surprised if your dog feels tired after returning home; this is also normal--especially if you've traveled a distance to the stay and train or the boarding service.
