Boarding,Training,Daycare Agreements

DoveK9 Policies:

  • DoveK9 cannot guarantee that toys, blankets, or beds will be kept in the same condition as brought in. For safety reasons, tennis balls and rawhides are NOT allowed.

  • All dogs must have current vaccinations per their veterinarian’s recommendations. It is the dog owner’s responsibility to provide updated shot records to DoveK9 annually.

  • All dogs must be on a leash when entering or leaving the premises.

  • We require that you bring in your food since changing a dog’s food can cause a severe upset stomach.

  • Each meal should be pre-portioned in individual sealed baggies, we will not accept large containers of food because we do not have the storage space. You may also bring treats to be given per your instruction.

  • Reservations are required for boarding. We request that you give us at least a 72 hour advanced notice from the start of the reservation for any changes. If your changes create a vacancy, we will try to fill it in those 72 hours. PLEASE NOTE: ONCE YOUR RESERVATION IS BOOKED, YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR THE FULL BOOKING UNLESS YOU GIVE AT LEAST 3 DAYS NOTICE PRIOR TO THE START OF THE RESERVATION. (example: If you book a visit for your dog for 10 days but decide to get your dog on day 6 instead, we cannot rebook the dates you had reserved on the spur of the moment so you will be responsible for paying for the 10 day booking)

  • Usual pick-up and drop-off times can occur anytime between 7AM to 12 Noon and 3 PM to 6 PM on Monday through Saturdays. Appointments outside of these times from 7AM to 6PM can be arranged since we live on the property. Please note we do close from Noon to 3 PM Mondays-Saturdays so if pickups or drop offs need to be during our closed time, appointments MUST be made. TOURS are by appointment only Monday-Saturdays. We charge by the day, not by the night. On drop off day, we charge for the entire day no matter what time of the day or night the dog is brought in for boarding because we must hold the suite all day for your dog. On check out day, check outs are allowed from 7AM to 9 AM at no charge for check out day Monday-Saturday. After 9 AM, there is a FULL CHARGE no matter what time the dog leaves. On Sundays & holidays (New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day) pickups are allowed from 2PM to 5PM but there is a FULL charge for Sundays & holidays regardless of what time the dog is checked out.

  • Dog owner understands the risks involved with communal boarding of dogs. Our boarding dogs sometimes play both outside and inside with other dogs. Although we will offer reasonable care, the unpredictable personality of dogs can sometimes lead to injury. Dog owner agrees that any problem that develops with their dog will be treated as deemed best by DoveK9 and full financial responsibility for all expenses will be assumed by the dog owner.

  • Dog owner understands that DoveK9’s liability, of any circumstance related to the dog, will not exceed the current chattel value of a dog of the same breed as the one in our care.

If in our judgement, your dog requires medical care, you agree to be solely responsible for the payment of all medical bills for your dog and you release DoveK9, its officers, directors, agents and employees of and from any and all responsibility for, or claims, damages, or debts arising out of or related to such medical care, including but not limited to, transportation to/from the veterinarian clinic and choice of veterinarian or animal hospital.

You indicate your agreement with all the terms hereof.

You acknowledge the risks of communal boarding/daycare/training. Dogs playing together in playgroups can sometimes result in injuries or spreading of illnesses such as Kennel Cough.

You release, indemnity and hold DoveK9 harmless from any and all manner of damages, claims, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses, causes of action or suits, whatsoever in law or equity (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and related costs) arising out of or related to the services provided by DoveK9, except which may arise from the sole gross negligence or intentional and willful misconduct of DoveK9, including, without limitation: (i) any inaccuracy in any statement made by yourself or information provided by you to DoveK9 (ii)your dog, including but not limited to destruction of property, dog bites and transmission of disease, and (iii) any action by yourself which is in breach of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
