Kennel Rates

Boarding rates are clearly posted in the office and on the website.  Any change in the future for boarding rates will be clearly posted in the office and on the website for your review and when they will take effect.

The owner/ staff at this facility reserve the right to kennel your dog in the appropriate size run or crate at any and all times as determined by us.  We only utilize crates for boarding during peak boarding periods and for small dogs only that are crate trained. 

Is your dog small, medium or large? _______________Is your dog crate trained?        YES        or        NO

This facility operates like a motel. Daily boarding charges START the day your pet is checked in.  The checkout time is 10:00 am daily. If you pick up your dog after check out time, you WILL be charged for the current day. If your dog is scheduled for a bath during normal weekdays, the checkout time will be 3:00 pm.

​Please initial that you understand the checkout time. _______________________

For new clients, the first time you check your dog(s) in, you need to arrive 1 hour prior to business close. This allows time for your pet to acclimate to the kennel and see our routine.

Phone Calls

​There is someone here during business hours. Because a kennel can be quite noisy at times and quite busy with baths/ grooming, dogs being let in/ out and customers coming / going and each employee may be busy doing one of these duties,  you may get the voice mail. Please leave a message. Someone will call you back at our earliest convenience.  We do make every effort to answer the phone, sometimes we just cannot.  Respectfully we are asking you not to call over and over. We are asking you to leave a message.

Scheduled Pickup date.

General Information and Disclosure

For Grooming, Boarding or Training Dogs.

When you bring your dog in any facility, there are many illnesses that are contagious that are beyond the control of this facility or any facility for that matter. Example: Kennel cough. It is an airborne virus that spreads much like the common cold.  This particular virus is spread when dogs bark or cough. There can be a carrier who never coughs, only Barks. This facility can only require that all dogs have the kennel cough shot. That is as far as our responsibility can go.  There are some dogs who cough, it doesn't always mean they have kennel cough. Example: If a dog has heart problems or trachea problems it will cough.  Severe allergies will also make a dog cough.

Should any boarding dog become ill, or seem to be in the need of medical attention, we reserve the right to, but are not required to, administer aid and/ or to use any available veterinarian in the event we cannot get in touch with you or your agent.  Any expenses so incurred shall be paid by the owner of the dog, in addition to the other fees listed.  Other fees could be but are not limited to: veterinary expenses, pet supplies you request, medicines, etc.

Please initial that you understand the above information __________________

Grooming and Baths

Grooming and Baths are done by appointment only during weekdays, excluding holiday periods.  If your dog is not boarding, then all dogs need to be delivered to the kennel by 9:00 am.  Dogs here for their first appointment need to be delivered to the kennel no later than 8:30am.  The employees will let you know what time you can pick up your pet.  Most dogs here for a bath will be ready by 1:00 to 1:30 pm.  Most dogs here for grooming will be ready by 3:00 pm. 

We make every effort to have your dog(s) ready by the time we say we will and do have a consistent success record. There have been a few rare exceptions and we have run late. We will make every effort to call you if we are running behind for any reason.

Dog Allergy

There are many dogs that have allergies.  We are not responsible if your dog has an allergy to any of the shampoos we use.  We will gladly use your shampoo should you provide it.

Unrination and Defecation

Animals will do very strange and unexpected things when stressed out.  They react sometimes negatively when stressed.  The more your pet boards, the more they will and can get use to it.  Most will actually enjoy their stay. There will be others who will never enjoy being boarded anywhere.  There will be some dogs that will urinate and defecate, even if they never have accidents at home. Sometimes from excitement.  Most of the time, just because they are off schedule from their outside times at home. We will sanitize their area and if time allows, wash any bedding you have provided.  Some of our customers prefer their dog to a bath every time the dog boards before the dog goes home. (baths are only during weekdays).

If your dog has "accidents" would you prefer your dog to have a bath if scheduling will allow it every time your dog boards?      YES    or       NO

There will be a charge for the bath.
