Between four and six dogs spend their day with me and no more than five dogs sleep over. One of the reasons I enjoy caring for dogs is getting to know them as individuals with unique personalities and developing a bond with each dog.. Too many dogs at a time would take the joy out of it.
WHAT SHOTS ARE REQUIRED?
Rabies vaccination is required by law. Please bring proof of all up-to-date vaccinations recommended by your vet which may include DHPP, Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza.
WHAT ABOUT FLEA TREATMENT?
For their own health and comfort and mine, your dog must be on an effective, year-round flea prevention program. In my experience, oral treatments are most effective in a beach environment.
WHAT WILL YOU DO IF MY DOG GETS INJURED OR SICK?
In an emergency, I will take your dog to the nearest vet and then make every attempt to contact you. If non-emergency care is needed, I will consult with you first and then take your dog to the nearest vet. The Marina Bay Cities VCA and the Animal Wellness Center are the two closest facilities. Shane Vet offers all night emergency care and is not much further away.
Boarding insurance through PetCare Insurance is complimentary to you and provides $1000 toward veterinarian care for your dog if they become ill or injured while in my care. There is a $250 deductible and preexisting conditions are not covered.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING FROM HOME?
Please bring your dog's food, a collar with ID tag & your contact info, bed (optional), and a harness if you have one. I have plenty of bowls, toys, balls, dog beds, and extra harnesses. Don't bring favorite toys because I can't guarantee what condition they will be in when returned. Please label items if practical.
I recommend that your dog's ID tag is on a collar so they are always wearing it. I use harnesses on walks and remove them in my home and yard to avoid the slight risk of getting entangled while playing with the other dogs.
WILL MY DOG BE CRATED?
I do not crate dogs since we want our guests to enjoy being in a home environment.
HOWEVER, if your dog is crate-trained and must sleep in a crate your may bring their crate.
ARE YOU ABLE TO GIVE MY DOG HIS MEDICATION?
I am experienced giving oral medication, insulin injections, and applying topical treatments. I provide these services at no additional charge. Please make sure the medication is labeled and provide written dosing instructions.
