Checking In

The more details you tell us about your dog(s) and their needs, the better we can take care of them. We input all of your information into our system.

We DO NOT accept any dogs without up-to-date vaccinations (Boosters) or the Kennel Cough Vaccine. Kennel Cough is not inclued in many vets booster package so please check that this is up to date before booking. Kennel Cough vaccination must be administered by a veterinarian a minimum of 10 days before arrival. Evidence must be shown to the receptionist on arrival. We reserve the right to refuse boarding of any dog that is not up to date with Kennel Cough or Booster vaccinations. 

If your dog is not able to have the Kennel Cough vaccine due to advice from your vet, we may accept your dog(s) with a vet note and you may be asked to sign and date a disclaimer stating that we do not accept any responsibility for any problems that occur from no vaccination. Your dog will be isolated and will not be exercised with other dogs during their stay.

Dogs are expected to be receiving regular worming and flea treatments and this will also be recorded on our system.

If your dog(s) have been unwell in the days leading up to your stay, we reserve the right to refuse boarding as they may be bringing in a virus/disease that could affect the other dogs already boarding with us.

If your dog is considered a danger to our staff, we reserve the right to refuse boarding for our and your dog(s) safety.

Please be aware that we take no responsibility for loss or damage of any bedding, toys, collars, and/or coats that you may supply and these items are brought in at the owner's own risk.
