If the thought of leaving your best friend in a kennel while you vacation, have a movie or game day/night out is enough to make you cancel your plans, welcome! You're our kind of people! We strive to make our home the next best thing to being home for your dog....., and most importantly, lots of love and attention
We are extremely flexible and accommodating with drop off and pick up times. If you already know your travel times, let us know and we can work out a plan for drop off and pick up that makes everyone happy, no stress required!
A short day or an extended stay is a social event in our home! Your dog will enjoy an incredible time with their new friends!
While we let the dogs be dogs, we keep very aware of their behaviours and watch for any changes. It is never a good to let a dog regress or learn a new habit so it is also a top priority to continue to provide a consistent routine and enforce the rules and commands that they follow at home. Please be sure and list commands that are used at home on the Host Info Sheet.
Here are some typical questions we get during the meet and greets, so I've put them here for reference.
Dogs are more than welcome to swim. We will provide all safety gear. No dogs for any reason for any amount of time are ever left alone in the back yard.
All fertilizers, potted plants, flowers, soil and mulch used on the property are certified Pet Safe.
What to bring at drop off:
A completed Host Info Sheet . I will keep it in a file for them for future stays and can update it as necessary.. As booking is confirmed, I will send a link to the DogVacay PDF to complete.
Food and treats
Medicine in original containers with dispensing instructions.
Although your dog will never be left alone in the home or outdoors, please only bring chew toys like antlers or kongs, basically anything that would be safe to give unsupervised.
Not necessary to bring:
Bowls (ours are sanitized stainless steel). Please only bring a bowl if you have a special needs requirement.
Bedding - We offer every dog an orthopedic Kuranda Bed, for their comfort during their stay.
Rawhide (choking risk).
Small stuffed animals or toys can destroy.
Although we take steps that are overly cautious for biting pest and keeping all surfaces and beds sanitized, please be sure your dog is using a topical or pill form of flea,tick and mosquito defense. If you've requested and/or allowed walks we use a very wide human and dog trail down a green belt that is far from all major roads, but is just a house away from my back door. Most of the dogs in my care are plenty worn out with all the fun here, but we are always happy to take yours for a nice, safe walk when requested by you.
