All we ask is that you bring food for your dog. It's best to stick to your dog's diet that he's used to to minimize any digestive discomfort and of course. Be sure to provide your pet sitter with all the information they need to care for your pet; see our Christmas checklist above. There are elite boarding facilities that offer dog exercises, playtime, and lots of other fun interactions with other dogs.
Your best protection against serious illnesses is to ensure that your dog gets the necessary vaccines at least one week before attending the Amherst Boarding Kennel. Temporarily closing a resort would not adequately address the main way in which the virus is transmitted from one dog to another, and would cause significant difficulties for the many people whose dogs are healthy and who depend on Pet Paradise to care for their dogs so that they can work and earn a living. In many cases, a dog is considered to be incompatible when it cannot share a space with other dogs because it is intact (it is not spayed or neutered) or because of behavioral problems, such as dog aggression, excessive dominance (increase) or if a dog is afraid when around other dogs. We also offer DayStay for dogs who like to play in groups, but also like to spend time for themselves, and one-on-one for dogs who prefer (or require) one-on-one time with a member of the team.
There are debates between kennels and dog day care centers about whether dogs should wear collars or not. Therefore, it would be a good idea for your dog to have it, since they share common ventilation facilities, so they will take him out for a run or walk him in the same areas where another dog has urinated. The Amherst Boarding kennel has several playgrounds where your dog can spend time outdoors without having to interact with other dogs. Like human colds, dogs are at greater risk of infection when they visit places that are heavily populated by dogs with greater potential exposure to the disease.
If you want us to bathe or groom your dog before we pick it up, let us know in advance and call us before picking it up to make sure your dog is ready to go. Although Lyme disease cannot be transmitted from one dog to another, there can be ticks in the yard where dogs exercise. The staff is very attentive to the dogs to ensure that they continue to have fun while maintaining a safe environment.
