What is a Bordetella vaccine?
It is a vaccine given to aid in the prevention of “Kennel Cough”, the most prevalent upper respiratory problem in dogs in the U.S.
The condition is also known as tracheobronchitis, canine infectious tracheobronchitis, Bordetellosis, or Bordetella. It is highly contagious in dogs.
Why is the Bordetella Vaccine given every 6 months?
It's recommended to be given every 6 months if your dog is ever exposed to other dogs. If your dog is groomed, boarded, walked among other dogs or you take him/her to a public dog park, you run a higher risk of exposure.
My dog is coughing after boarding but he is vaccinated, why would this happen?
Can I bring my dog’s bed?
Due to our laundry policy, we recommend that you do not bring your own bedding. We have plenty of fluffy blankets, beds and toys! That way, you don’t run the risk that your pet’s belongings are misplaced.
If you would like to bring something with your scent, you can bring a t-shirt or stuffed toys.
Why does my dog have to spayed or neutered to go to daycare?
When my dog stays in an indoor kennel does it get to go outside?
All dogs are taken outside to the turf play yards 4 times daily for about 30 minutes, depending on weather and temperment.
Additional times out can be requested for an extra cost.
What kind of food do you feed in the kennel?
All our boarding guests are fed once or twice daily. We feed Hill’s Science Diet Sensitive Stomach. If you prefer your pet to be fed more often, we can for an addtional charge. If you choose to bring your own food, there is a storage/handling fee of $1/pet/day.
Please include any special instructions with your pet’s food.
Are my dogs ever with other dogs?
All of our guests are in separate accommodations unless otherwise requested.
Doggy Day Camp is available for all of our boarding dogs if they pass our temperment test.
My dog came home thirsty, do you leave water out at all times?
All of our guests have clean fresh water available 100% of the time.
Some guests may go home and drink more then normal just from the excitement of you coming and picking up and going home , this is not uncommon at all.
My dog came home with diarrhea or loose stool, is this normal?
It can be. The excitement of boarding combined with the amount of exercise the dogs receive while with us can cause this issue, along with just the normal amount of stress from not being at home.
If for some reason it does not clear up within a day or two , give us a call and we would be happy to help and as always if there is excessive amount or blood in the stool give us a call right away.
