boarding requirements

***Please read this section thoroughly before inquiring about boarding arrangements. ****

VACCINATIONS

All dogs must have proof of vaccinations. Rabies, Dhlpp Booster (Distemper/parvo) and Bordetella (kennel cough) must all be current. Dogs will NOT be allowed to stay at the facility if vaccinations are expired. We ask the bordetella is updated at least two weeks prior to entering the kennel. We will also gladly accept a signed titers blood test from your veterinarian.

 

 

AMENITIES

We provide all the basics your dog will need during his/her stay, this includes bedding and food. We also provide stainless steel dishes and all food/water bowls. If your dog is eating a different food than one we carry or has special dietary restrictions, we highly encourage you to bring in their own food. If you are providing your own food for your pet, it must be packed in ziplock bags.

 

While you are able to provide your own food, know that any meal that requires additional prep such as but not limited to: supplements, powders, bone broth, goats milk, raw meat, heating/cooling, etc. will result in a fee of $1+ per day.

 

You are also allowed to bring in a blanket, toys and or something familiar from home for their comfort.

 

We have a wide selection of Bully sticks, treats, food and ice cream to purchase for your dog to make their stay extra special. Please ask the front desk about our tasty treats.

 

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

There are not age restrictions to board at Dogstyle Inc. however; if your dog is older and has never boarded before we ask that you take those factors into consideration when choosing a boarding option for an elderly pet.  If you are unsure of how your dog will do, we recommend trying daycare prior to boarding.  During this time we will monitor your dog and make sure the kennel environment is not too stressful for them.

 

If considering any training during your dog’s stay, you must have a consultation prior to boarding so that we can better accommodate your dog’s needs. Consultations are free of charge if held at our facility.

 

 

PAYMENT

Payment is due at time of check in. If you pick up after we close, you will have to pay for that night of boarding as well.

 

Monetary refunds will only apply to totally canceled trips. Shortened trips of 2 nights or more will get you a credit to use in the future. If you return one night earlier there is no refund or credit.

 

If you are having a friend or relative check your animal in for you, payment must be sent with them or be made ahead of time.

 

 

WALK THROUGH

If you are planning on doing a walk through of the facility, it must be done prior to the day of check in, and scheduled by appointment.

 

If it is your first time boarding your animal with us, we ask that your dog is checked in early on in the day, instead of close to closing. We would like your pet to be able to receive exercise time to de-stress and to be observed for any abnormal stress factors.

 

If your dog is very sensitive or needs to have special handling by our lead staff only then extra rates may apply. Please call ahead of time to make proper arrangements.

 

 

PLEASE DO NOT BRING THESE ITEMS AT CHECK-IN

 

Dog dishes, bulky containers, tupperware or glass containers. (if your dog requires a special dish for eating please discuss prior to checking in) we do not allow these items for safety purpose to our staff and animals.

 

Dog beds that do not unzip or cannot fit in our washing machine. We do change bedding daily and use/provide beds and blankets that are easy to clean and wash.

 

Can lids. We will provide a lid for any canned items you bring.
