We tend to stick to board dogs home routine, whether that is in a crate at night or free run of downstairs. Even if hes a co sleeper we will accommodate!
I always ask for you to bring food, either with a measuring cup or bagged up into meals. A bed or blanket with familiar scent from home and a favourite toy. Lead, collar with name tag and any medication.
If you have worries then I can offer either a free half day or half price boarding for 1 night to give peace of mind. Even the most timid of dogs come out of their shell with reassurance and patience. IF I deem it an issue then I would recommend a boarder with 1-1 care.
In my contract I have a section giving me permission for free running. If this is not declared then the dog will stay on lead.
Any dog in my care will have a vetinary release form. This gives me permission off you to take the dog to the vet if you are not contactable.
Not everyone is a perfect fit. I will always recommend other local daycares and boarders within the area who I work closely with. Please do not feel pressured. A meet and greet is put in place prior to any booking purely for this purpose. Always book a meet with 3/4 others boarders and go away to think about the best fit for you dog.
