Bedding and Food

Everyone has an individual sleeping place at night, in a personal kennel suite baby bed mattress and blankets, and just blankets for dogs too young for mattress because of risk of chewing. You are welcome to bring your pets own blankets if you wish and some pet beds allowed but has to have zipper to be easily washed. Please ensure that they can fit into a regular size washer as we regularly wash your pet's blankets. 

We request that you leave their food and water dishes at home. We provide dishes so they can be properly sanitized. We also require that you bring your pet's food in plastic sealable containers with easy open lids, in an appropriate size based on the amount of food for the length of stay. Please no coffee cans, grocery bags, etc. Pop top only canned pet food.
