We require that you bring your dog’s food to avoid causing possible digestive issues (diarrhea, gas, upset stomach etc).
• We provide meals based on each individual dog’s needs at breakfast, lunch, (when applicable), and dinner.
• How to prepare your dog’s meals:
o Divide EACH meal into its own, separate ziplock bag.
o Label each bag with your dog's name
o Label each bag with special feeding instructions (i.e. add water, add wet food, must hand feed etc.).
• You will incur a CHARGE of $1.50 PER MEAL for meals that are NOT prepackaged. We set meals up ahead of time, in their prepackaged bags in bowls. Non-prepackaged food must be prepackaged by our staff.

If you forget to bring your dog's food or you don't bring enough for their stay, we have a variety of foods we keep on hand and we will gladly provide food for $2 per meal

We are happy to give medication to your dog, but require the Medication Form to be completed each time your dog stays. All medications must be in their original prescription bottle, we cannot administer medications that fail to meet that requirement as per State law.

We offer no refunds on any products, packages, or boarding stays. Per our cancellation policy, credits are issued. All credits will remain on the account to be used at a future date.

• ID: A collar with an ID tag WITH your dog’s NAME on it.
• FOOD: For dog’s requiring meals during their stay, see the Feeding Instructions above. Failure to follow instructions will result in additional fees.
• Medications with completed medication instruction form.
Safety is our upmost priority.

• Food or water dishes as we supply them and don’t have the space to store yours.
