Because the dogs play together here, all dogs must
come in for an orientation day before staying overnight as a guest. This allows
them to get to know us before being left overnight in our care and a chance for
us to assess their temperament. We will observe your dog to make
sure that he or she is not aggressive towards our staff or the other dogs and
that they allow us to handle them i.e. touch, pet and grab them by the collar.
If your dog is shy, fearful or has never been boarded before, we suggest a few
daycare visits prior to their longer planned stay. This will increase their
comfort level, help reduce separation anxiety and will help ensure that your
dog's stay is
a successful one. We have many success stories of shy and/or fearful dogs that
have become confident from socializing at It's All About the
Dogs. After you have registered with us and we have verified your
dog's vaccines records we will call you to schedule an orientation
day. Orientations are scheduled before 10:00 a.m. six days a week. On your
orientation day you will drop your dog off to
play with us for a minimum of four hours.
