When you have to be away overnight, let your dog enjoy a fun-filled vacation at Animal Loving Care. Your pet will enjoy our homey accommodations and a slumber-party style night — crate-free, with canine friends, on a cozy cushion or in bed with a human caretaker. Boarding dogs also get walked on leash and daycare is included in the daily rate.
- Leash/any walking equipment such as a harness or specialty walking collar that you use
- Any medications your dog takes or may need during the stay
- Enough food/treats for the duration of the stay (+ one day in case of delays).
- Your pup, wearing a comfortable collar that he or she can remain in for the duration of the stay.
- — Dogs must do well with other dogs and humans. If your dog has any history of aggression towards humans or other dogs, ALC is not the right fit for your pup as we do not separate our canine guests.
- — Dogs must be three months of age or older and on course with all required vaccines. Dogs must be spayed or neutered by 7 months of age.
- — Dogs must be vaccinated for rabies, distemper, parvo, parainfluenza, and hepatitis, (DHPP, DA2P, or equivalent) and bordetella. The canine influenza vaccination (H3N2 & H3N8) is recommended, but not yet required.
- — Dogs should be in good health. Upon admission, all dogs must be free from any communicable conditions.
- — Dogs must have been in your care for at least three weeks prior to attending daycare/boarding.
- — Dogs must be brought to ALC with a collar they can wear for the duration of their stay.
- Sign up as a client in our scheduling system, PetExec.
- Schedule an evaluation for your dog. If you're interested in daycare, this is a day trial. If you're interested in boarding, this is an overnight trial. You can request either via PetExec or by emailing us.
- Get us your dog's vet-provided vaccine record by uploading to PetExec, email or faxing it to us, or bring the record with you when you come in for your pooch's trial.
