Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to do before bringing my dog to stay with you for the first time?

There are a few things you can do to prepare before your dog comes to stay with me for the first time!
1. Create an account using the "Pet Portal" tab at the top of the page. Make sure all field are filled out
2. Make sure your dog is up to date on their vaccines as well as heartworm and flea/tick prevention
3. If you have a copy of their vaccine records, you can email or text them to me. If you do not have a copy, you can call your vet and have them sent over
4. Ask me any questions you have! I am always happy to answer all questions so you feel comfortable dropping you fur-baby off with me.

What vaccines and prevention does should my dog have before staying with you?

In order to keep your dog safe, I ask that they are up to date on Rabies, Distemper/Parvo (DA2PP or DHPP), and Bordatella. Heartworm and flea/tick prevention are not required but are strongly reccomended. My dogs are all vaccinated and up to date on prevention at all times, however, with wildlife that sometimes comes into the yard and lots of dogs that come to my house, the best way to keep your dogs safe is to make sure they are fully vaccinated and protected.

What happens if my pet gets sick or injured while under your care?

Depending on the situation I can continue to care for them while monitoring them closely, or I can take them to the vet of your choice. I keep the number of animals under my care to a minimum so that I can give each animal the personalized care that they need. If I notice anything that seems out of the norm for them I will always contact you immediately. I am always willing to do whatever is necessary to keep your pets happy and comfortable.

What animals can you care for other than dogs?

Invoices can be paid in the client portal. We use Time To Pet as our software system and payments are processed by a secure payment system. 

What should I bring if I am dropping my dog off to board with you?

The most important things to bring are food and medications. I am accustomed to specific feeding instructions so you can bring any canned food, refrigerated food, supplements, etc. that is part of their normal diet. Feel free to bring anything else that you think might make them comfortable. I I supply beds, blankets, toys, and bowls (including slow feeders and raised bowls). You are welcome to bring these items as well, however I keep everything on hand so that your pups belongings don't get dirty or lost. 

Do you charge extra to administer medications?

There are no additional charges for medications that are administered orally or topically. Injections do cost an additional $5 per injection because in order to ensure that they are done correctly, these can take a bit more time.
