Holiday Dog Boarding Checklist

Planning your pooch’s upcoming stay at DoGone Fun? We’ve got a handy guide to help you plan your holiday dog boarding.

Step 1: Get to Know Our Facility’s Amenities

We are more than just a holiday dog boarding facility. We offer a fun and festive doggy play area, as well as training and grooming services. Before you book, decide how you’d like to pamper your pet during their stay. We can work on your hound’s holiday manners during their stay, or schedule a full grooming session before they return home from the holidays. We invite you to tour our facilities beforehand, so you are familiar with our services and confident in the care of your pet.

Step 2: Check Your Pup’s Shot Records

Immunizations must be current prior to your visit. Please bring a printed record of immunizations including:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • ParvoLepto
  • Para-Influenza
  • Hepatitis/Adenovirus
  • Respiratory Bordetella
  • H3N2 and H3N8 Flu

Step 3: Try a ‘Mini-Break’

If this is your canine companion’s first stay away, consider a trial-run (or two) at DoGone Fun’s doggy daycare. Each time you pick up your dog, it will make him more confident in the knowledge you will return. This practice will ensure a stay free of separation anxiety.

Step 4: Pack for Holiday Dog Boarding

When packing your car for your pup’s stay, don’t leave home without:

  • Vaccination records

    A recent copy ensures there are no miscommunications.

  • Contact information

    Be sure to leave your most current phone number(s), and the number of a local friend/family member your pet knows and trusts, in the rare event your pet has any issues during their stay.

  • Medications

    Bring all medications your dog regularly uses in their original containers, so dosage and veterinary information are included.

  • Favorite food & treats

    To avoid digestive upset from dietary changes, be sure to pack your pooch’s regular food and favorite treats. Dividing them up into individual baggies prevents confusion and ensures the proper serving size at each meal.

  • Bedding favorites

    If your pup is partial to a particular bed, you are welcome to bring it along for their stay.

  • Beloved toys

    Pack your pal’s favorite pet-friendly toys, marking them clearly with your dog’s name to make sure they don’t get misplaced. Only bring items designed for dogs, avoiding those that present choking hazards such as rawhide and rope bones.
