Daycare and Boarding Requirements Because Saftey of Your Pet is the Most Imporant!

Bark Central Requirements
 

We want to have a positive and safe playing environment for all dogs. All pets must go through our in-house aggressiveness and behavior assessment which is free to you.  Free Trial, assessment is where you leave your pet with us for 1 to 3 hours, while you leave and do a few errands. Make sure you bring your pet’s vaccine records for trial. We introduce one dog at a time to your pet so they don’t get over whelmed with a large group of dogs greeting them all at once. You do not need an appointment for a trial assessment.  Pets must be non-aggressive towards people, animals, and food. Personal items will not be allowed due to high risk of possession aggression. We are not set up nor have extra space to keep aggressive animals at our facility.

Must be Friendly with other Dogs and People

 

Must be Spayed or Neutered

To keep everyone safe, we required all pets must be spayed or neutered by 7 months of age. Dogs that are not spayed or neutered have more behavior and dominance issues. There is also the risk of pets become pregnant. And even dogs that are spayed or neutered get jealous or protective and can try and challenge pets that aren’t spayed or neutered.

All pets must have current proof vaccinations from a certified veterinarian.  Required vaccines include Rabies, Distemper/Pravo, and Bordetella. We do not have a fax, so you can bring in a paper copy, have your vet call us, or have it emailed to us. Vaccines may be waived due to old age, health reasons, or allergies with a written release from licensed veterinarian. 

Must Be Up To Date On Vaccines

No Fleas or Parasites

All pets must enter the facility with no fleas or parasites.  If fleas are found after your pet is left in our care, then the pet will be bathed and/or treated with topical flea treatment and you will responsible for any charges. Although we have a no flea policy, there is a higher risk of your pet getting fleas when socializing them with other dogs, so it is highly recommend that you treat your pet monthly with a topical treatment.

Sorry No American Stafford Terriers or Pit Bulls or American Bull Dogs

Sorry we do not accept Pit Bulls, Pit mixes, American Stafford Terriers,  Stafford Terriers, Or American Bull dogs at our facility. Although some can be very sweet and loving animals they don't do well in large group play with other dogs. They do better with one on one play or small groups of dogs because they have a dominating personalities. Our facility is not set up for their energetic and rough playing behavior.

Shot Records

What to Bring for Boarding
 

All pets must have current proof vaccinations from a certified veterinarian.  Required vaccines include Rabies, Distemper/Pravo, and Bordetella. We do not have a fax, so you can bring in a paper copy, have your vet call us, or have it emailed to us. Vaccines may be waived due to old age, health reasons, or allergies with a written release from licensed veterinarian. 

We highly recommend bring your pets own food from home. Switching your dogs diet can give them an up set tummy or diarrhea. Bring food in its original dog bag, Zip lock baggies, or container with your pets first and last name. Its not a bad idea to bring a day or two extra just in case your trip is longer then planned. Any extra food left over will be given back. We feed twice a day although we can feed lunch if your dog is used to that. We also have premium dry dog food for emergency's or if you run out.

Own Food

We will administer any medications as provided and directed by you.  Please make sure medications are marked with detailed instructions so we can administer it to your pet properly.    

Medication (If Needed)

No Personal Items From Home

We ask that you leave all beds, blankets, and toys at home. Not having these items makes less of a hassle for you and us. It’s one less thing for you to remember to bring before your big trip and we don’t have to worry about your items getting misplaces or destroyed. We supply all bedding for each pet that is washed daily. Plus, far too many dogs can be possessive over personal items or toys. We also do not need your pet’s food or water bowels. We have size appropriate feeding bowls that are sanitized after each feeding. Fresh, clean water is always available and bowls are washed daily.
