To ensure your pup has a great time all participants are required to attend a complimentary consultation designed to allow your pup time to acclimate. *This is required prior to any care.
Your private consultation gives you, the pup-parent time to ask questions, view our indoor and outdoor spaces as well as talk with us about your fur-baby’s specific needs and habits. Space is limited, we only take a few pups at a time, and we do not accept all pups: therefore your pups temperament, general social awareness, age, special needs and/or breeding will determine your fur-baby’s eligibility. Our facility is a unique, open environment and is not suitable for some dog personalities and/or temperaments; restriction may apply.
Each fur-baby will receive paperwork on their consultation day for them to fill out and bring back on their reserved drop-off day.
Your fur-baby is required to return both their paperwork as well as their proof of current vaccinations on their drop-off day. No exceptions.
To reserve your space, half of your trips duration is paid at your consultation, the remainder is paid at time of drop-off.
