What Is Included During Boarding
- Three walks per day, feeding, playtime, and good company throughout the entire day and evening.
Desired Services Beyond What Is Included In Daily Boarding Routine
- Any walks beyond the daily three that are included within the boarding/sitting routine along with requests to pick up and/or drop off to the groomer are extra and need to be scheduled prior. All pricing set on an individual basis.
PLEASE NOTE: Regarding fee and daily sitting and boarding coverage, we do not view a day as a 24 hour period. We consider a “day” and the daily fee for the “day” as morning, afternoon and evening from 8:30am to 10:00pm. As written above, that includes 3 walks per day, feeding, playtime, and good company throughout the entire day. (Overnight is part of the job being that we are sitting/boarding the dogs full time everyday till the end of the job.
Therefore, each day is counted as the beginning of one (1) new day. Daily fee varies and is adjusted according to when care starts and ends on any given day. Please see the ’Dog Boarding Adjustments’ section below. Please also rest assured that if your dog(s) is/are not feeling well and urgently needs to go out for a business walk, we do not consider that a special request but just part of the care we provide. We will also alert you quickly via email, phone and text of any physical or behavioral changes of concern.
Please refer to our boarding and sitting adjustments section just below to help you decipher pricing according to your needs.
