All new clients may want to consider a trial day of daycare before boarding. In some cases it may be a requirement if our staff may see some potential problem areas of behavior.

All dogs must be able to be handled well on a leash or slip lead. Do to the high volume of exercise we need to be able to handle dogs safely and often.
The Pet Lodge is a high exercise facility. We individualize the exercise program to each guest. Daycare and boarding dogs are all on a daily exercise program that is the same. That includes three half hour walks per day and/or in addition to playtime in turnout areas. Play groups are adusted by staff according to temperment and behavior. These adjustments may be made several times a day. Swimming available daily until pond ices over!
Please allow time for a short pre-exam of your dog when you arrive and to fill out all the information we will need about your dog. You can do the pre-entry information on the phone with us or by mail, then you will only need to sign the boarding/daycare contract when you arrive.
Pet Lodge Recommendations:
You can bring any medication and we will administer them free of charge. No shots, please.
Please bring any extra bedding and toys that are your dog’s favorite. This will make their stay more comfortable.

Each suite has a full patio door, which provides a quieter atmosphere. These features enable us to keep the stress level of your dog at a minimum.
In order to keep your pet as comfortable as possible, we recommend that you bring your own food and make sure you bring plenty for the entire stay! It is always best to bring extra than not enough.
