Collars and Personal Items
All pets are fitted with a disposable collar during their stay for easy identification and safety purposes. We do not keep leashes or collars. We are not responsible for items left at Check In or Check Out. Dogs By Andy K-9 Services provides all pets with fleece beds and a toy. We cannot accept any stuffed toys, stuffed bedding, tennis balls, rope toys, or flat Nyla Bones. A flat bed or blanket is acceptable. You may leave one durable chew toy. Please label all belongings with your pet’s first and last name. Dogs By Andy K-9 Services cannot guarantee that personal items will be returned, so please do not bring items that are not replaceable.
To reduce digestive upset we encourage owners to bring their dog’s normal food. Please bring only enough pre-measured food to cover your dog’s entire stay. Please label the food container with your dog’s name and feeding amount. Please do not bring bowls, scoops or cups. If you prefer, or if you forget your dog’s food, Dogs By Andy K-9 Services will provide a high-quality, age-specific food for your dog at no charge. Dogs By Andy K-9 Services feeds twice a day. A $4.00 surcharge will be added for any dog who requires more than two feedings per day. For dogs that need to be fed separately, Dogs By Andy K-9 Services suggests purchasing separate rooms as we cannot guarantee your dogs will be separated at feeding.
Dogs By Andy K-9 Services Staff is happy to administer any veterinarian-prescribed medications your dog requires, with the exception of injections. Please make sure to tell our staff when making a reservation that your dog will need medication. As required by the USDA, medications must be brought in their original container from the vet or pharmacy and be clearly labeled with your dog’s name, veterinarian contact info, and dosage. There is no charge for administering medication with the exception of medicated baths. Nonessential vitamins or supplements will incur a $4.00 surcharge unless these supplements are included in individual baggies along with the dog’s food. Dogs By Andy K-9 Services cannot guarantee that the dog will ingest them, however.
Dogs By Andy K-9 Services reserves the right to refuse any pet that is not up to date on vaccinations or shows signs of illness or injury. Any pet that shows evidence of fleas or ticks will be given a medicated bath at the owner’s expense.
Spayed and Neutered Dog Policy
Unlike other kennels we do not require your pet to be spayed or neutered to board with us. However, we CANNOT have dogs in heat in our facility at any time. Dogs in heat are a disruption to the entire kennel, so please understand if your pet comes into heat while staying with us you will be asked to pick them up immediately. In the event you cannot pick up immediately, your pet will be isolated off premise and incur a boarding charge of $100.00 per night.
Veterinary Care Policy
If any pet needs emergency medical attention, Dogs By Andy K-9 Services reserves the right to transport the animal to a veterinarian of our choice and/or administer medicine and/or give other advisable attention within Dogs By Andy K-9 Services’ reasonable and sole discretion and judgment at the owner’s expense.
