K9 Tailshakers believes boarding dogs already have an underlying element of anxiety when their owners leave. When adding Daycare, we multiple the anxiety by introducing them to an unknown group of dogs, in an unfamiliar environment, with unfamiliar people and an unfamiliar routine and we feel this is not fair to any dog nor is it healthy or safe. By the time your dog truly settles in, it will be time for them to leave. We would rather do everything we can to minimize anxiety during your dog's stay than to add to it and our Enrichment Activities are a great way to get them moving and having fun!
We often compare this to starting a new school. Your child certainly would not be happy starting a new school every day, particularly when they can't even return home at the end of the day. Many people misinterpret an excitable dog for a happy dog, when really, they are anxious.
In addition, our Daycare is a Structured Environment focusing not only on Play although Manners and Self Control teaching Place, No bolting out of Gates and Crates and if dogs are not regular, this will be even more stressful for those who do not attend regularly.
Our Enrichment Program is one of the most popular Programs at our facility. It is a blast and the least stressful for your dog getting one on one attention and activities!
TIP: Our add on services sell out quickly! We recommend scheduling any add on activities or departure grooming services at the same time you schedule your boarding services.
Subscription Daycare Members that are Boarding may attend on your regular subscription days for no additional fee. On you non subscription days you can add on additional daycare days or activities, pending availability, for $10 per session.
First, we would recommend scheduling a Boarding Evaluation so we can evaluate how your dog will react to our kennel environment. The best option would be to become a regular Day Program Client. Our regular Structured Daycare & Enrichment Program dogs typically board comfortably as they are familiar with the environment, staff, and routine. Although we realize this is not an option for everyone. With that said, we recommend starting several months in advance and Day Board your dog 1-2 times per week.
We offer Boarding in our Kennel and/or Crate Areas. Our Kennels range from
9L X 9W X 6H to 6L x 6.5W x 5.25H. Our Crates range from XS Chihuahua Sized to XXL Great Dane Sized Crates. Please Note: Many people think their dogs are happier in a Larger Space. Dogs like to feel enclosed as they have control over their area in an unfamiliar environment & feel more protected. Think about dogs who are left outside or in the wild. They sleep in their dog houses or hidden somewhere in tall grasses, bushes or hidden in dens or under structures, you will not see a dog sleeping in wide open areas when in unfamiliar places. Our staff will decide what size Kennel your dog will be most comfortable in. We use crate boarding only for overflow boarding and with clients request or approval only. Clients can bring their own crates if they prefer.
Yes, we have Full Service Grooming available. Our Grooming can be booked up to 8 weeks in advance sometimes.
We require your dog to remain on the same diet they have been on at home while they are with us. Please do not change your dog's food or add new treats prior to boarding. We monitor your dog's stool and sometimes a change in food can cause loose stool. This can make it difficult to determine if loose stool is from anxiety or an underlying health problem.
Please pre-bag all food per feeding. I.e., If your dog eats 2 Cups AM and 2 Cups PM there should be two bags per day. We accommodate all diets and have freezers and refrigerators to hold any types of food. Please, DO NOT put your dog's medication in your dog's food. If your dog has food allergies or a specialty diet, please let the office know and indicate what specialty food your dog is eating and what food allergies your dog has on your registration form. We do offer facility food for a fee although we recommend keeping your dog on their regular food while boarding to prevent loose stool. Please do not change your dog's food prior to boarding.
If you can, please bring medicine/supplements in the original prescribed bottle with your dog's name and instructions. All medicine or Supplements need to be clearly labeled with dogs first & last name, what it is, and dosage. There is no additional fee for administering Medications. Note: We do not board dogs that take injections. Please consider boarding with your Veterinarian.
K9 Tailshakers will provide blankets and/or cots provided your dog is not a chewer. We also provide feeding and water bowls. Please indicate on your registration if your dog will destroy or eat blankets or bedding. K9 Tailshakers is not responsible for lost, misplaced or destroyed items. All items are removed from your dog's kennel for daily cleaning and there is a chance your items can be misplaced. Please DO NOT send sentimental or items of great value with your dog. Small blankets, beds, safe items are allowed although all bones and toys will be removed overnight. No Rawhide.
