Terms and Conditions

  1. All animals must be fully vaccinated and a current veterinary certificate must be produced at the time of boarding and may be retained on site during the boarding period. Effective treatment against worms and fleas must also have been given prior to the commencement of boarding. 
  2. Vaccinations for Dogs – Dogs must be fully vaccinated within the last 12 months against:
    a. Distemper
    b. Hepatitis
    c. Leptospirosis
    d. Parvovirus
    e. Para-influenza and must have had a booster injection within the previous year.
    f. Kennel cough – optional – kennel cough vaccines must be given a minimum of 14 days prior to your pets stay as this is a live vaccine.
  3. If a dog has been given its primary vaccination course, or if they have had to restart their vaccines due to a gap in the vaccine history, the vaccine course must have been completed a minimum of 14 days prior to the check-in date. This does not apply to booster vaccinations. For ANY kennel cough vaccine – either initial, restart or booster, this must have been given a minimum of 14 days before your dogs stay, as this is a live vaccine.
    If the relevant amount of time has not elapsed or if your dogs vaccinations have expired at the time of boarding, or proof of vaccinations are not produced the dog(s) cannot board at our facility and 100% of the paid fees will be forfeited. It is the owners responsibility to ensure their dogs vaccines are in date and given within the correct timeframes of their dogs stay, and that this can be evidenced.
  4. Veterinary treatment will be arranged with a local veterinary surgeon if deemed necessary for any condition occurring during the stay. However, any recurrence of a known condition will NOT be covered by our own insurance and all owners will be expected to settle their own accounts in full.
  5. Only dogs from the same household may share boarding accommodation.
  6. Charges are per day including arrival and departure days. If a pet is collected before 10am on the departure day there will be no charge for this day. If an owner is late in collecting their pet and arrives after 10am this charge will be added to your dogs stay.
  7. Cancellation fees will be at the proprietor’s discretion. Deposits are not refundable.
