We want you pup to have a great time while they are in the care of others. The staff at The Dog Lodge at Dandy Acres will make sure of that. Here are a few ways we remain a top choice for dog owners in the area:
Prior to booking any overnight lodging visits or frequent daycare visits, all guests must come in for a scheduled introductory day of daycare. Your pet will spend a day at our facility, 5 hours or more is required. At the end of that visit we will determine what is the best fit for them and what care they may require while you are away. We offer different programs for special needs pets and seniors. We also offer group socialization for those who enjoy the company of other dogs. Unfortunately we do not care for dogs that are unsocial or aggressive towards other dogs or people. A social dog does not need to actively play with the other dogs in group they just need to be able to mingle with their own kind.
This is a program we offer for special needs pets and/or senior animals that need overnight lodging services. Most of these guests are unable to participate in group socialization because of their age and/or physical limitations. Each pet involved in this program will receive a personalized daily schedule based on their specific needs, whether it be extra walks and/or potty breaks, special meal preparation, medication administration and exercise routines according to their capabilities.
We will determine at introduction day if your pet will need to be a part of this program and they will be automatically placed in a particular location within our facility for their health and safety.
The fee for this program is $49 per night.
Minimum age of service is approximately 14 weeks of age. This will depend on your veterinarian's vaccine protocol. All puppies must have their Distemper series complete, Bordetella and a negative fecal check.
Rabies vaccine required by 6 months of age.
Heartworm Test required by 9 months of age.
All pets must be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.
All guests of our facility must be non-aggressive towards people and other animals. It is our goal to have all visitors out of their kennels for the majority of the day, therefore our daily routines do not work for unsocial animals.
All guests must be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.
Holiday Lodging requires conformation and prepayment 2 weeks prior to the visit. These are prime booking times, that are sought after by our clientele. This helps us to make sure any availabilty is filled prior to the actual holiday. Unfortunatly we do not offer refunds on holidays prepayments. The times of the year that are included in this are
Spring Break & Easter
Fourth of July
Christmas & New Years
Although we love all dogs at The Dog Lodge, we do have some limitations on the breeds that we can accommodate. We do not socialize some of the powerful breeds which include, but are not limited to:
Dogs and cats don't like unnecessary loud noises any more than humans do, with the exception of Heavy Metal rock music fans! We take many steps to muffle and eliminate noise and reduce barking for our patients and guests, our staff, and our neighbors.
Non-stop play: Our dogs at the Dog Lodge play a minimum of 8 hours every day. Bored dogs bark. Dogs at play do not. There might be the occasional yip of delight but that's about it.
