Policies & Requirements

         Thank you for choosing Happy Wags Lodge & Spa to care for your pet (s) while you are away on a business trip or perhaps a vacation.  Our goal is to make your pet’s stay with us a vacation of their own
- with plenty of playtime, personalized pamper time and a treat at the end of the day (providing owner has given permission).

Here is some helpful information regarding requirements for boarding with us.

        All first time Kennel clients must fill out our Client Registration & Pet Intake Form (PDF) and Waiver & Consent (PDF) and return to us ( prior to boarding date.  You will then only have to sign and date our drop-off sheet.

        All pets boarding at Happy Wags must be up to date on the required vaccinations.  If a vaccination is not current, said vaccine must be administered a minimum of five (5) days prior to boarding.  Vaccinations required are as follows:
        Bordetella (Kennel Cough) - required yearly
        Dpp - Distemper
        Canine Influenza (recommended but not required)

        If your pet is not up to date on his/her vaccinations, your pet will not be allowed to board.

        Please allow time at drop off to review Registration forms as well as any other paperwork necessary for your pet’s boarding stay.

        We are all inclusive in our boarding fees -  unlimited potty breaks, fresh water available in each kennel, 2 meals (breakfast and dinner), bedding, plenty of exercise in the play yard during the day, and pampering by staff members.  No additional charges for meals (if forgotten by owner) or time spent in play areas during the day.
