Our boarding and training program requires you to drop off you dog with us for an extended period of time. Here is what you should know before your drop off date.
What should I know before boarding my dog for training?
- Send in the training registration form (you can download it from our website) along with $250 deposit to reserve the spot. Space is limited to a maximum of 4 or 5 dogs boarding and training in our home, not at the kennel, to allow us to focus on your dog and his/her individual needs. After we receive the registration form, we will contact you to discuss the earliest availability date to start training or if you have a specific date, please let us know.
- We will need proof of your dog’s vaccinations. Please bring the shots records along with your dog. The following immunizations are required before boarding: Rabies, DAPP (Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus), and Bordetella (also known as kennel cough). You can also send a copy prior to drop off via email.
- Your dog’s diet. Dietary consistency is important especially if your dog is young or has a sensitive stomach. Please provide enough of your dog’s food for the entire time while he is boarded here.
- If your dog has any diet restrictions or medications, we will discuss at the time you drop off your dog.
- We will accept your dog’s favorite toys or blanket/bedding if you wish to send them along with your dog. However, we recommend you to leave them at your house if they are expensive or memorable/irreplaceable items.
- Balance of payment. The payment must be paid in full at the beginning of the training program.
What should I do on the day of drop off?
- When you arrive at our facility, please remain inside of your car with your dog because we might have dogs outside loose or training. For your safety, please let us know you are here at the facility by calling us or text us, then we will escort you out of your car and will evaluate your dog. If the outside gate is closed, please do not open it by yourself nor beep the horn, remain in your car, we will open the gate for you.
