Do I need to bring my own food for my dog?
Yes please bring your own dog’s food and treats. That way your pet will maintain their diet, keeping a nice consistent experience for them during their stay with us.
Do you take puppies? How old do the dog have to be?
Based on our experience, for the most enjoyable experience for your puppy, we require that they be at least four months old. This is for the safety of your puppy and other dogs. Final vaccination, typically aren’t given until four months of age.
Is it normal that my dog is tired and sleeps for a few days after coming back from 4 paws?
This is one of the great benefits while staying here at 4 Paws. Your pet gets to play all day, naturally, they are tired at the end of the day. We do give the dog a rest period during the day, however, after an extended stay with us they will most likely be happy to be home and curl up in their nice bed at home.
My dog was very thirsty when he arrived home. Do you give them water in their room?
Water is available at all times in their room. Playing hard all day can cause the dog to be more thirsty than usual. We recommend that you put ice cubes in their bowl when you arrive home.
What if my dogs get hurt?
Although we do our best to minimize any injuries to your dog, during normal play a dog may get small scratches, nicks. We supervise the dogs when they are outside to play and if we see that some dogs are playing too ruff then we will bring them in for a break.
