In order to reserve your pets spot we would need to have his or her boarding agreement on file. You can find that here. Once filled out, email it back to us, fax it to us at 845-712-5493 or even drop it off at the lodge. As soon as we receive the agreement, we can reserve your pet’s vacation with us.
Checking on your pet…
During your pets stay, you want to know how they’re doing! Call the kennel to check on them at any time, although sending an email or a Facebook message is easier. Through email and Facebook message, we can send you pictures directly, and update you more often.
Your pets typical day at the lodge…
Your pet’s day will be full of friends, big and small, and a ton of play time with all the other doggies staying here. If they aren’t fond of the other pups, they are more then welcome to hang with the staff in our reception for belly rubs and one on one attention. Guests get to go outside a minimum of 7 or 8 times per day (dependent upon the weather). Potty and play breaks are separated. So all guests will get to go outside solo with the staff first to do their business and sniff around. After the first potty break in the morning, breakfast is served. When all the doggies have gone outside for potty time and have had their breakfast, play time starts! The rest of their day is a rotation of play time, potty time and time to rest up of course. Rest time usually consists of the AC on full blast(or heat for those winter months!), treats being served, bones given out, and toys squeaking! Later in the afternoon dinner is served, potty time and play time starts once again. Your pet is bound to be tired out and ready for a good night’s sleep by the time bedtime rolls around.
While at the pet lodge, safety comes first. That’s why we strive on getting to know your pet and their personality so that we can decide which guests would get along the best. We usually keep the small dogs with the small dogs, and the bigger dogs with the bigger dogs. Play groups stay small, so they wouldn’t be outside with any more than 3 to 5 dogs at a time. If your pet prefers human interaction over doggie interaction, absolutely no problem! We would be happy to let him or her into our reception for belly rubs and scratches with the staff while we do our computer work 🙂
We recommend you bring a blanket or bed, toys and bones for your pet. It is tile throughout the kennel, so they will need something comfy to lay on. As always, we warn everyone not to bring something they will miss if it doesn’t make it back home! Please no comforters.
Please package food into zip-lock baggies and mark them with your dog’s name and feeding time. (AM/PM) Packing a few treats and bones would be a good idea too!
We only accept large food containers/bags for extended stays. (8+days)
We understand that some of our guests may have special needs. Please feel free to discuss any special requirements with us when you make your reservation. We will do everything in our power to make sure your pet is taken care of and provided for. Here at the pet lodge we also have 2 suites, separate from the other dogs, with a separate yard for those who need special, quieter and comfier accommodations.
We offer a ton of extras for your pet during their stay. They include all different kinds of packages, walks, baths, toys and treats.
