Dog Kennels and Your Dog: What you Need to Know
The tickets are booked, the plans are set, and you are all prepared for that fun-filled vacation abroad. That is, you will be once you know where your beloved dog will be staying while you are away.
At Aunt B’s Pet Resort & Spa in DeForest, WI located just outside Madison, WI, is well known for our top of the line dog kennels and accommodations which are designed to cater specifically to the needs of your pet. We have a few simple requirements that must be met before your pet comes to vacation with us, which must be fulfilled before we can accept your pet. We have laid out exactly how you can be prepared below so that your dog can seamlessly transition from your home to ours.
Vaccinations Are Required
DeForest, WI located just outside of Madison, WI is a fairly safe area for dogs, which has led many dog owners to forgo a regular vaccination schedule. Unfortunately, for the safety of all pets here at Aunt B’s Pet Resort & Spa, if your pet is not up to date on his or her vaccinations or does not have the vaccinations required to stay with us, we will not be able to accept your pet at check-in.
The vaccinations, which are necessary for your dog include:
- Distemper (DHLPP)
- Canine Cough (CVV, Bordetella)
These vaccinations must have been received at least 7 days prior to your dog coming to stay in one of our dog kennels and cottages. Be sure to arrive with the records and dates of your vaccinations as well!
Flea Prevention Is Necessary
If you have ever dealt with a flea infestation in your home, then you know just how difficult they can be to get rid of. Given the number of pets we have visiting with us here at Aunt B’s Pet Resort & Spa in DeForest, WI located just outside of Madison, WI, we require all dogs to be on a flea prevention program. Our expert staff will also inspect your pet when you come for check-in just to make sure that no fleas are present.
Bring Your Dog’s Food
We generally will not provide food for your pet. This is not because we are unable to do so. It is for the comfort of your pet. Suddenly switching your pet’s food when he or she is already in an unfamiliar environment will cause additional stress or upset, and it can have a negative impact on the health of your pet.
When We May Not Be Able to Accept Your Dog
We love every furry friend who comes to stay with us at Aunt B’s Pet Resort & Spa, but for the safety of our staff and other pets in our establishment, we are unable to accept dogs who are aggressive or who are notorious fence climbers.
