Policies & FAQ - Lodge

Required vaccinations must be up-to-date prior to boarding:
  • Rabies
  • Distemper/Parvo
  • Bordetella

You are welcome to come tour our facility any time our lobby is open. However, we advise not doing a tour at peak times, which are Monday-Friday from 4:30-6PM and Sunday from 4-5PM.
Yes, we can administer most medications, with the exception of insulin. There is a fee of $0.50 per medication administration. 
We charge much like a hotel. The first night is a full one-day charge. If you pick up any time after 10:00am, there will be an extra “half day charge”. So, for example, if you drop off at 5:00pm Mon and pick up at 9:00am on Tues, that would be 1 days. If you picked up at 5:00pm on Tues, that would be 1.5 days.

In order to make your dog's stay as stress-free as possible, we highly recommend getting your dog acclimated to Dogwoods prior to their stay. The best way to do this is by doing a Day-Stay or Daycamp two or more times prior to their stay. The more familiar they are with the Lodge, the more they will relax and enjoy their stay!
No problem! If one of our large Chalets isn't big enough, we have Chalets and Cabins with adjoining doors - creating double the space for your canine family (up to 120 sq. ft.)!
