We suggest new overnight guests spend at least one day in daycare prior to their overnight. This gives them a chance to get familiar with us and make their overnight stay a positive experience.

Destructive Dogs
Dogs will be dogs, but if individual dogs are found to continually destroy property (tear beds, shred carpets or 'spray' inside) their owners will be charged a property damage fee. Please let us know if your dog has a habit like this so that we can make adjustments so that our things aren't damaged and you don't end up paying an extra charge.
