Checklist

1) Copy of immunization records showing your dog is up to date on vaccinations. (Bordatella is optional but recommended, especially for young, elderly or infirm pets.)

2) Medication: please provide delivery instructions and storage instructions (ie - must be refridgerated)

2) Food for your pet. Please ensure you bring an extra two days worth of food in case your travel plans are delayed. NOTE - we can accomodate raw diets.

3) Bring your pet's food in a container. No bags, please. We do recommend air tight containers for pets staying with us longer than 2 wks.

4) Write feeding instructions either on the lid of the container or on paper that you then attach to the container, perhaps with tape.

5) Chews, treats and toys that you trust your pet with...UNSUPERVISED!

6) Crates are welcome if you wish us to maintain your pet's sleep-at-night-in-their-crate regime or if they like to have it for added sense of security. Very large crates may pose some difficulty for us. Please contact us to discuss further.

7) Bedding: We have ample supply of bedding to offer, however, you are welcome to bring easy-to-wash bedding if you wish. Laundry is typically done every third day unless the bedding becomes soiled prior to laundry day. In such cases, the
bedding will be laundered immediately. PLEASE NOTIFY US IF YOUR DOG CHEWS, RIPS OR IS KNOWN TO OTHERWISE DESTROY OR INGEST BEDDING MATERIALS!

NO DISHES, PLEASE!!! We use stainless steele bowls that are washed and sanitized daily.
