We are a small, family run pet service located in the Fondren neighborhood of Jackson. We believe in treating your pet like we would our own. We believe in positive reinforcement and enriching the lives of our 'campers' with activities and field trips and excellent food and treats. We can't replace you, but we can make your furbaby as happy and comfortable as possible until you return.
Your pet can play outside in the kiddie pool or go to the dog park or just lie on the couch and nap. We can accommodate most any temperament.
Your dog will sleep where they are accustomed to sleep be that on the bed or a doggy bed or the couch, we don't mind. We try to keep to your dog's usual habits and schedule as much as possible. We feed high quality food and treats. We offer structured walks as well as free play time, dogs are supervised at all times and never left outdoors alone.
1. Can I bring my dog's (x).
Yes. You are welcome to bring any item that you feel might make your dog's stay more comfy. While we have plenty of blankets, toys, beds, and bowls for those who chose not to bring their own we don't mind a bit if you wish your dog to have things that he or she is familiar with.
2. Can I bring my dog in a carrier?
Yes. Or on a leash. But we ask that you not just release your dog out of the car. Sometimes dogs are familiar with the Dog Vacay experience but some are not and get nervous. It would be terrible for your pet to get lost running off out of fear in an unfamiliar neighborhood. So please do not let your dog off leash. We will do that once the dog is safely behind the fence.
3. Can my dog get fleas?
Yes. We recommend that all dogs be on flea protection. While we go to great effort to remain flea free, like any camp or school experience the little ones use each other's things and can sometimes pick up a freeloader on walks. We would like to think this never happens but common sense says it will so we like to make sure our guests are prepared.
4. What happens in case of emergency?
While some local guests may have their own vet, for those who don't we have a wonderful vet we use, Dr. Coward. He's been in business for many years and is a kind man the dogs seem to enjoy. For overnight emergencies we use the emergency clinic off Lakeland Dr. on Treetops Lane. It is run by the people from Mississippi State and provides excellent emergency care.
5. If I can't pick up my pet can you bring my pet to me?
Yes. Usually, we taxi locally free or outside the city limits for a small fee depending on distance. But let us know, we can work with you so that your pet gets home safely and on time.
6. Will you send me pics of my pet?
Maybe. I have a strong dislike for doing anything that makes your baby uncomfortable. If your pet is relaxed enough that I can take the camera out and get a shot without annoying or upsetting the little one I am more than happy to. But if your dog is very anxious I am not going to make that worse by doing something that feels aggressive in dog language. I view my main job as making your pet feel as happy and comfy as possible.
7. What if my dog is naughty?
We do not kennel or otherwise "discipline" naughty pets. If your pet is naughty while on vacay it is probably because the little one is nervous and upset and we respect that. Good behavior is treated and bad behavior is ignored. If the situation becomes potentially dangerous we have dog free areas that your pet can relax in rather than getting into a more anxious state. We are not going to crate your dog for any behavior reasons.
