In order to reserve your pets spot we would need to have his or her boarding agreement on file. You can find that here: Boarding Agreement 2019 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! You can message us on Facebook, email us or call the kennel to check on them at any time (sending an email or a Facebook message is faster and easier).
Pictures are available when you purchase our picture package. While we love to take pictures, sometimes it is very hard to take pictures of everyone staying with us.
Your pets typical day at the lodge…
Your pet’s day will be full of friends, 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.
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 group the dogs based on size & temperament. 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 recommend you bring a blanket or bed, toys and treats/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. 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. These separate suites do not have stairs into the yard, which is beneficial for older dogs who cannot get up and down stairs.
We offer a ton of extras for your pet during their stay. They include all different kinds of packages, walks, baths, toys and treats.
