Canine Daycare and Boarding Facility
RULES, REGULATIONS AND AGREEMENT
Our mission here at AlphaDog Lodging is to offer safe, professional and convenient care for our dog loving community.
To ensure the safety and health of your pet, other guests and our staff, we require all of our guests to comply with the following Rules and Regulations:
AGE: Puppies must be at least six months of age and have received their second round of puppy shots.
SEX: All dogs must be spayed or neutered on or before the age of six months.
SHOTS: All dogs must have up to date vaccinations. Owners must submit written proof that their dogs received Rabies, DHLPP (or a variant) and Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations within the last 7 days to 11 months. Specifically, the vaccinations required are Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Para influenza, Parvovirus, and Bordatella. These shots are commonly referred to as DHLPP; 5 in 1; or 6 in 1 and can include or have the Bordatella vaccine as a separate inoculation.
HEALTH: All dogs must be in good health. Owners will need to certify that their dogs are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. On admission, all dogs must be free from any condition which could potentially jeopardize other guests. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require Veterinarian Certification of health to be admitted or readmitted.
BEHAVIOR: All dogs must be non-aggressive. Owners will need to certify that their dog(s) have not harmed or shown any aggressive/threatening behavior towards a person or other dogs. Please remember that your pet will be spending time with other pets and that their safety and health is our main concern. Under certain circumstances, AlphaDog Lodging employs the use of cloth muzzles and vibrating bark collars to calm dogs. Unless otherwise specified by owner, this is our protocol and the decision to use these tools is at the discretion of our experienced caregivers.
MAXIMUM CAPACITY LIMIT: As a safety precaution, we have a Maximum Capacity of 65 dogs. If the facility reaches Maximum Capacity, we reserve the right to deny dogs without a reservation for Daycare/Boarding. In the event of harsh weather conditions, we reserve the right to deny dogs without a reservation for Daycare/Boarding. If you would like a guaranteed appointment for your dog, please call ahead (415-383-2111) or email (email@example.com) and book a reservation. All reservations must be approved by a manager.
PEAK HOLIDAY PERIODS: To avoid overcrowding, we require reservations for both Daycare/Boarding during Peak Holiday Periods. A 5-Day/Night deposit is required regardless of the number of Days/Nights requested. Reservations are booked on a “first come, first served” basis. We will provide timely notifications of when these periods occur. It is the owner’s responsibility to book a reservation and pay the deposit before Maximum Capacity is reached.
To provide a fun, caring and safe environment, AlphaDog Lodging requires that your dog must pass a 1-4 hour temperament evaluation prior to becoming a daycare or boarding guest.
