What paperwork do I need prior to boarding?
You need a copy of your up to date shot records or they can be faxed in to the office. You also need a completed application for boarding. If you have filled out an application for boarding, then you do not need to fill one out again.
How often do you feed?
We feed our guests every morning and evening. Twice a day unless you request only once a day. They have fresh water 24 hours a day.
Do dogs enjoy going to the Pet Resort?
Most dogs love Riverside Pet Resort. They are so excited to get back into the kennel and run, bark, and have a great time. The dogs get plenty of attention from staff and get the excitement of having lots of other dogs around them. Most love their vacation at Riverside Pet Resort.
If your dog is showing any signs of extreme stress, we will separate them until they get use to their environment. We have private rooms for this specific issue. (This is rarely an issue)
Will my dog come in contact with other dogs?
Yes and no. All dogs have their own run, condo, sleeping quarters, and will not play with other dogs unless specifically requested by the owner. This must also be documented on your registration paperwork. Bathroom breaks and exercise times can be spent with other dogs if they are not aggressive towards each other and if the consent form has been signed by the owner. If your dog is aggressive or you request that they not come in contact with another animal, the pet will be allowed in the exercise yard by themselves.
I have a lot of dogs. Do you have a large area where my dogs can all stay together?
We do have runs that can be combined for large dog families. Speak with Amanda or Mike (owners) for details on this and for special pricing.
Can my dog stay for a month or more?
We can accommodate long term stay. The terms and conditions of this extended stay must be approved by the owners.
Will my dog be allowed to play outside?
Yes!! We have a 4500 square foot fenced in exercise yard. This is surrounded by a 6 foot tall, heavy gauge chain-link fence. If your dog climbs or jumps fences, notify our staff at check-in and on your boarding form.
Are your runs indoor and outdoor?
We have indoor/outdoor runs along with inside only condos. You can request either type of enclosure.
Are the runs heated and cooled?
Yes, all runs and condos are kept at a comfortable temperature all year around.
Can I pick up my boarding dog anytime?
No, Please pick up boarding animals during specific boarding hours posted on the boarding page. This allows the animals to rest during the lunch time hours and allows our staff to perform cleaning of the kennel.
Do the dogs bark constantly in the kennel? I'm afraid my dog will not be able to rest.
No, the dogs are quiet except when someone walks back into the kennel area. This excites the dogs and they start barking. The kennel stays quiet at night time.
