Check In & Out

Check In:

All dogs must be on a leash when arriving at the kennel. Things are busy around here and while your dog may be friendly another dog may not!  Please don’t enter the kennel without someone giving you the “all clear”!  You never know when some little four legged friend may be loose!

Check In should take approximately 10-15 minutes for a first time guest. Please allow enough time. It is also best to make your good bye short and sweet…as if you’re leaving for the grocery store. Remember that your dog can read you like a book. Your dog will feel your confidence in your selection of Bed and Biscuit and that will help him to feel confident too.

You may want to hold off on your dog’s food if you’re dropping off in the morning depending on what time you get up. Some dogs get car sick and others are just anxious. We want to try and think of all the things that could cause your dog undue stress.

Things to bring:

  • Dog food
  • Blanket and/or Bed
  • 2-3 toys
  • Medication and/or Supplements
  • Oh ya… and the Dog!!!

Check Out:

Your dog is SO excited to see you! Please try not to be overly excited to see him/her…although you are. Your calm reaction to seeing your dog will reinforce to him/her that you are again confident in your choice.

Please only give small amounts of food and water for the first few hours that you are home. Your dog is happy and excited and could easily gulp down food and/or water causing undo digestive upsets.

Your dog may sleep a day or two away when finally back in his calm and quiet home. This is normal considering the hubbub of the kennel environment.
