What are your vaccine requirements?
To be a guest at K-9 Island, your dog must be at least 16 weeks old and current on Rabies, DHLPP, and Bordetella vaccinations. Bordetella 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 970-461-1609 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Must my dog be spayed or neutered?
It depends. All dogs 8 months and older need to be spayed or neutered prior to being a guest.
What should I bring with my dog/animal?
• Please complete and bring all required forms including vaccination and spay/neuter records. You may also fax (970-461-1609) or email (email@example.com) them prior to the visit
• All dogs should wear a collar to help our staff with control and identification. 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 animals food in a closable, hard sided container.
If you are bringing your dog, 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. (K-9 Island sensitive stomach diet is available for .75 a cup if needed)
• While we are able to provide a raised cot for your dog but 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 animal needs medication, will you be able to give it to them?
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?
We do not ban any specific breeds, but we do not accept human/dog aggressive dogs.
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.
