Boarding & What To Expect

At the time of each boarding visit, we will ask you to sign a boarding contract. This contract will inform you of our
boarding policies, guidelines, and prices. At each subsequent boarding visit, we will ask for you to update any
medications, special options, and contact information. If you have any questions or need to review the contract,
please let us know and we will provide a copy for your records. In addition, you are always welcome to see where
your pet will be housed. We want you to be confident that they are well cared for while staying with us.

Daily Routine
We find that our dogs adjust quickly and comfortably to our daily routine. Dogs are outside four times a day to run
around, sniff and play in our large 12' x 50' shaded exercise areas. The first outside break is early morning, at
which time breakfast is fed. The next break is late morning dogs are out for individual play time/attention time or
play groups. The dogs just love to run around our 30' x 60' play yard. After everyone is settled back in, treats are
handed out. Dinner is served approximately 4-5 pm. Everyone goes outside for the last time several hours after
dinner for a potty break before bedtime. We give treats throughout the day. For an additional charge, we provide a
daily walk on groomed paths on our farm. We also post pictures on Facebook daily during our play times.

What To Bring
We provide treats, play toys, food, water dishes and blankets. However, you are welcome to bring your own clean
bedding, treats, food or anything else you want your pet to have. Please keep in mind that there will be times when
your pet is unsupervised. Your pet's safety is very important to us. For your pet's own safety, please only bring
items that will not cause harm to your pet while unsupervised.
We highly recommend bringing your own pet food to eliminate upset tummies and/or loose stools. Otherwise, we
feed Diamond brand dog and cat food. If your pet is on a special diet, please bring your own food and provide
instructions. Unless it is a special feeding, we do not charge extra for this.
