What should I bring for my dog(s) during their boarding stay?

Bring your dog’s food (pre-bagged meals are strongly encouraged) and any medications for your pet’s stay. Pets must be fed before coming in for their boarding stay (busy check-in times can make it so that belongings can be checked in hours after a pet arrives so please feed them prior to their arrival!)
Please leave all food bowls at home unless your pet uses a special bowl such as a slow-feeder.
We have plenty of toys, beds and blankets. It is not necessary to bring these, but if you wish you may bring one toy and a blanket for your pet.
Please keep all rawhides at home, they are a significant choking hazard.

What are your vaccination requirements?

For dogs: Bordetella, Rabies, DHLPP (Distemper 5 in 1), current on flea & heartworm preventative.  For Cats: FVRCP & Rabies

Vaccinations should be administered at least 48 hours prior to visit.

We can administer Bordetella treatments prior to visit here at Lucky Bones for a $20 fee. Must be administered at least 48 hours prior to stay to allow time for the treatment to take effect.

* please note any dog brought in with fleas will be charged for a flea bath.

Have you ever turned down any dogs before? If so, for what reasons?

We turn down only those that are overly aggressive, not current on vaccinations, those recently ill who may be carriers, or dogs not spayed or neutered over the age of 6 months old.

Can my dog still get sick although current on all vaccines?

Yes. All our clients must be current on all vaccines. However, there are many strands of viruses out there and some dogs may have a weaker immune system than others. We keep our facility extremely sanitary but we are a daycare and just like kids going to daycare, they can sometimes catch a bug and get sick. We discourage any dogs with any symptoms from coming into our facility.

Yes. Both playrooms have toys, beds, and gym like equipment.
