Boarding

The Best for Your Pup

Our dedicated staff works hard to make sure your pet feels comfortable and relaxed. Whether it’s their first Boarding experience, or they’re seasoned regulars, their wellbeing is central to everything we do. Here is the Checklist of what you need for your fur member to be prepared for his or her stay with Pawtopia Pet Resort & Club. You can never be too prepared! Read our detailed boarding checklist so your pet can have a seamless stay with us.

 

VACCINATIONS WE REQUIRE TO BOARD YOUR DOG: 

Rabies, DHPP or DAPP (Distemper, Hepatitis/Adenovirus, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza)

We also require Bordetella (Kennel Cough) and this is a yearly vaccination. 

 

Your Pet Boarding Checklist

 

  • Pet vaccine certificates

  • Pet medication with detailed instructions on dosing frequency 

  • Pet food if you are supplying your own 

  • Pet treats

  • Toys

  • Blankets

  • Pillows

  • Emergency contacts

When bringing personal belongings, we ask that you cleanly label the toy, treats, food or medication with your pet’s name. Also, you are welcome to bring any sort of bedding or pillows for your pets at your own discretion, but please note that there is a possibility for them to be destroyed.

 

  • Bringing Your Own Pet Food

 

Please label your pet’s food with your pets name, your last name and clear feeding instructions. We also ask that you please let our office staff know what food you feed your pet, that way if the pet food runs out, we can buy extra food of the same brand to prevent an upset stomach. The extra pet food is at the cost of the owners and will be added to the bill. If you have more than one pet staying in the same room, as precautionary measures we ask that you supply extra food for each pet staying in the same suite.

If your pet is signed up for the activity or exercise plan, please supply a minimum of ½ cup of extra food per meal per day for your pet. At Pawtopia Pet Resort, pets receive a lot of exercise and tend to be more active and playful when they are around other pets; we ask that you bring extra food to prevent weight loss. If your pet is not signed up for the activity and exercise plan, we still recommend that you supply extra food. From animals flipping over food trays to soaking their food with water dishes, accidents do happen and extra food always comes in handy.

Raw Food Diet

For those who feed a raw food diet, we have a refrigerator and a freezer on our property. We ask that you supply an extra cup of food daily and clearly label the food bags or containers.

 

Please keep in mind:

We do not require tick and flea prevention, but we do STRONGLY recommend it as Pawtopia Pet Resort is located in a rural area that is very wooded. It is not uncommon for ticks and fleas to be on/around our walking path, and there is no way that we are able to keep them away, but we can prevent spreading if all dogs have prevention.
