What Should I Know For My Pet's Boarding Stay?

 

  • When should I drop my pet off off?

    • All pets must be dropped off before 1 PM daily.

 

  • When should I pick my pet up?

    • Pets may be picked up anytime during business hours. However, pets picked up after 1 PM on the last day of boarding will incur a $17.50 ½ day boarding charge. Check our calendar for modified holiday hours. You may request a pick up after business hours here (additional fees apply).

 

  • What are the costs for boarding?

    • Cage free boarding is $35 per night, per pet.  Additional fees may apply based on pick up time and services added.

 

  • What if I need to cancel this reservation?

    • Please call (812) 339-0590 or email us to cancel your reservation. Reservations must be canceled before the close of business the day prior to your reservation.  Canceling after this deadline will result in a $20 daycare charge (for daycare reservations) or a $35 one night boarding charge (for boarding reservations).

 

  • What should I bring?

  • FOOD: Please provide food for the length of your pet’s stay. Food should be separated into individual meals using plastic bags or containers. Please label each meal with your pet's first and last name. Any additional items such as canned food, cooked chicken, etc. should be labeled on the side with your pet’s first and last name and the amount to be given per feeding. You may provide treats for your pet during his/her visit, but please, no rawhides or jerky treats. Your pet’s belongings will be stored in a cubby 13x13x15in while at The Dog House.  Please do not provide belongings that will not fit in this cubby.

 

  • MEDICATIONS: Please see our medication guidelines and complete a medication form for each medication (a new form must be provided for each visit). Each medication should be provided to us in a medication holder.

 

  • COLLAR/TAGS: Your pet should be wearing a well-fitting collar or harness at the time of drop off.  Collars MUST have a quick release buckle (example). This collar or harness will remain on your pet for the length of his/her stay (unless removal is medically necessary).  No “choke” style collars or metal collars are permitted.  Please make sure your pet is also wearing an ID tag with his/her name.  If you do not have an ID tag, engravable metal tags are available for purchase in our lobby. Flea collars may come off during play; please make sure your pet's name is written on the inside of the collar to be sure it's returned to you.

 

  • The Dog House provides everything else needed for his/her stay (beds, food scoops, bowls, etc.).
