Common Questions

What Do I need to do prior to Boarding and/or Doing a Board & Train and or any type of Training?

All dogs must be up to date on all vaccines. They must have a current Bordetella. 

In order to board at our facility a dog must have a negative fecal test within the 7 day window of coming in to board. If you have a puppy under six months of age it will need a Canine Distemper & Parvovirus Antibody Titer Panel (IFA & HI). Why do we require this for dogs under 6 months of age? We require it, because dogs between the ages of 6 weeks to 6 months are at the highest risk of parvo and distemper. Even vaccinated puppies can still get parvo and distemper. We are the most strict facility for training and boarding in Cochise County. We do not play around when it comes to parasites, worms and/or diseases. Safety and quality comes before quantity. If we did not have such strict requirements our kennels would be full everyday for boarding, however, we would rather lose business from someone looking for low standards than to spend thousands to try to sanitize after a parasite and or other infestation. Diseases, and parasites that can affect your dog we take very seriously. We have not only our clients dogs on property to think of protecting,  our staff also bring their dogs to work. They are also held to the same standards.

What is a negative fecal test?

Take a sample of your dog's poop, place it into a zip lock and bring it to your vet and request a negative fecal examine. Be prepared it can take anywhere from 24-72 hours to receive the results. 

 Please ask your vet to test for the following: Cocidia/Goradia, all Parasites/Worms and to include Hookworms. Please specify to your vet or they will only do the generic test and we cannot accept the generic.

Once a client has become a client, we only require a negative fecal on a quarterly basis to ensure the safety of all dogs. 

It is very important and cannot be over emphasized to please board only with a facility that requires a negative fecal test. An example of the dangers of not having one, is that hookworms can be spread to people and once a dog gets hookworms it is almost impossible to ever be completely rid of it. A dog can step in another dog's feces and be exposed to hookworms. It is recommended to google or watch some videos on the danger of hookworms. It is for this reason that we do not recommend dog parks. Dog parks do not have a set standard and policy in place that require the dogs at the park to have vaccines and/or a negative fecal. Dog Parks unfortunately expose our dogs to parasites, along with other diseases. 

What do I need to pack for my dog's stay?

Please provide enough food for the duration of your dog's stay. If your dog is on medication, we ask for a detailed email on the instructions of administrating the medication. We do not charge extra for administering the dog's medication. 

If you have any further questions, please feel free to text, call or email us.
