Whether you’re taking a short business trip or a long vacation, know that your dogs are safe, secure, happy and healthy while you are away.
We are located on a scenic five acre parcel in which the dogs can enjoy both open expanses and shady trees. The perfect mix of exercise with their playmates during the day, then rest and relaxation in the evening in the clean and cozy rooms inside.
If it’s your dogs first time away from home without you the experience can be stressful. To help ease their first separation, they may stay in our personal quarters with us to help make their stay the best it can be.
To ensure your dog has a happy stay, we require the following things:
- We require all dogs to first come for a visit, during which time you get to see our facility, and we get to know your dog and make sure the free-range environment is a good fit for everyone. Please call 206-418-6159 to set up an appointment.
- We require all dogs to be spayed / neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations, including Bordetella. Note: The Bordetella vaccination has an incubation period of at the very least 4 days (closer to a week in most cases), so please have your dog receive this vaccination well ahead of time of boarding or visiting. Please include a negative fecal exam taken within the last 6 months. You can either have your vet fax us the records at 866-472-6603, or bring along a copy when you drop your dog off for a stay.
- Please provide enough food for the expected duration of your dogs stay. Supplying your own food assures that your dog’s diet is consistent.
- DO NOT bring any personal possessions of any kind. This includes leashes, bowls, beds, or toys. Your dogs collar must not be metal; ie: choke chains, spiked or pinch collars.
Please note: All dogs on their arrival day are required to be at Arcadia between opening hours and 12pm noon. This will help moderate energy levels among the pack. Drop-off or pick-up outside normal hours of operation will incur an additional $35 fee. Arrangements MUST be made in advance with confirmation.
