Which vaccinations are required to board my dog at Driftwood Boarding & Wellness?
We are pleased to provide your pet with the required rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella vaccines if they are in need of them.
What is your plan if my dog becomes seriously ill?
Our staff veterinarian will advise our kennel staff to contact you with options in the event that your dog becomes ill. If it is a minor illness, you may opt to have us treat your pet while they are here. If there is a more complicated problem that warrants more intensive care, we will contact your local veterinarian on file. If time is of the essence and it is a true emergency, we may opt to take your pet into the emergency clinic. In any event, you will be responsible for all incurred charges for the treatment of your pet.
Do I need to bring my own food?
YES! Keeping your pet happy and healthy requires that you bring your pet’s food to maintain good stools and GI health. Pre-measured meals or detailed measurements and instructions are helpful to ensure that our kennel staff is not under-feeding or over-feeding your pet! In the event that you are unable to bring your pet’s food, we are happy to provide our “house diet” for $4/day.
How many times per day are the dogs let outside?
The dogs are let outside 3 times per day, morning, noon and night.
Are they let out together?
If dogs are in the same family and get along with each other, we let them out together.
What happens during playtime?
Each dog is different so we try and tailor make each 15 minute playtime towards the individual dog. Some dogs like to fetch. Some dogs like to walk on a leash. Some dogs simply like to sit on your lap and be petted. We try and cater the playtime to their individual needs one on one.
What happens during a nature hike?
We have four different trails to accommodate all dogs - large and small! We recommend these hikes for ALL of our "energetic" guests on a daily basis, and every other day for guests having an extended stay.
Are the kennels heated and air-conditioned?
Yes, our kennels offer a climate controlled, secure, safe and comfortable place for your dog.
What size are your kennels?
Our indoor kennels are a spacious 4-feet by 5-feet, with a reinforced decking for them to rest on. We take a great deal of pride in the cleanliness of our kennels and would be happy to show them to you on a tour.
