We require at least 1 month paid up front on long-term boarders, and each month thereafter paid in advance. In turn, we offer a 10% discount on the boarding rate and we will give your pet extra exercise as needed. We discourage visits to short-term boarders because the pet thinks he’s going home and then is left again. This is worse on the pet then not spending a little time with you. Regarding long-term boarders, we sometimes make exceptions to that. Each pet will be evaluated and recommendations made by interpreting individual personalities and circumstances. Any owner can override this advice at any time, but we ask that you strongly consider our professional opinions while debating your decisions. We always do what we feel is best for the pet.
