What are your vaccine requirements?
To participate in resort activities your dog must be at least 16 weeks old and current on Rabies, DHLPP, and Bordatella vaccinations. Bordatella should be given every 6 -12 months depending on the frequency of attendance and your vet’s recommendation. You must have written documentation of the vaccines given.
• If any of the vaccinations have expired or have not been given, they must be received by your dog at least 5 days prior to their visit.
• Reminders will sent when vaccinations are due to expire.
• Please fax vaccination records to 970-667-1011
Must my dog be spayed or neutered?
It depends. All dogs 8 months and older need to be spayed or neutered prior to participating in group resort activities. Intact males and females over 8 months of age are welcome to participate in individual activities with a team member for both dog daycare and boarding, after passing the evaluation.
What should I bring with my dog to the evaluation visit?
• Please complete and bring all required forms including vaccination and spay/neuter records. You may also fax (970-667-1011) or email (email@example.com) them prior to the visit
• All dogs should wear a snap type collar with an ID tag and Rabies tag. For the safety of your dog and others please leash up your dog when entering and exiting the building.
• If your dog requires a meal or snack during the day, please bring it in a sealable container. Please label it with dog’s name and any specific instructions needed.
What should I bring for an overnight visit?
• Your dog’s food in a closable plastic or metal container. It is better for your dog’s digestion to remain on the same diet throughout their stay. It is not uncommon for a dog to have diarrhea with a sudden change in diet.
• Consider bringing your dog in by 3pm. By having a chance to socialize and acclimate to the new environment will help your dog will sleep more comfortably that first night you are away.
• While we will provide a bed and bedding for your dog’s stay, please feel free to bring your own if you wish. Bear in mind, some dogs will destroy items while boarded that they would not otherwise do at home. K9 Island is not responsible for your personal items that your dog destroys. If your dog is really young and/or it is their first visit providing an old T-shirt with your scent may be comforting to your pup.
• Any toys or other items will be kept in your dog’s private area. We ask that you do not bring any rawhide bones or rope toys as these could pose a choking hazard. As a reminder, rawhides should only be given when you can directly supervise them.
My dog needs medication, will you be able to give it to him?
Yes. Please make sure that you bring the medication in its original packing along with your vet’s instructions on how to administer.
Do you have any breed restrictions?
While we do not ban any specific breeds, we do not accept human aggressive dogs. Only dogs that pass the group play standards will be allowed into group play. All other dogs may be accepted into our Specialized Care Activity Package Program.
My dog is not very active or tends to be shy, is daycare still an option?
Absolutely. All dogs are pack animals and most enjoy socialization with other dogs. You might be pleasantly surprised at how well your dog responds to her time here. If we feel that your dog is not truly enjoying herself then we will definitely let you know. We want all dogs to have a fun and stress free time with us.
Do big dogs and little dogs play in separate areas?
Typically, yes. However, as with everything, there are exceptions to the rule. Some of the more mellow dogs like to hang out with the little ones. And then there are some smaller dogs with big personalities who love to get in the thick of it with the larger dogs. We use the temperament evaluation and daily observation of the dogs to ensure that they are in the appropriate play groups.
