Once you have determined that your dog meets our requirements, you can then begin the enrollment process.
Application: All dogs must have a completed application on file. Applications can be submitted online on our "Apply Online" page.
Release Forms: All owners must sign our Health and Temperament Agreement and our Emergency Medical Care Release
Interview/Evaluation: Once the required paperwork has been completed, we will then have you bring your dog in for a scheduled "interview" where we will evaluate your dog's ability to interact with other dogs in a safe and appropriate manner. This process helps us determine whether or not your pet is a good fit for our Daycare or Boarding program. Interviews must be scheduled in advance. The process usually takes approximately 3 hours.
PLEASE NOTE: The Application and Veterinary Forms must be completed prior to your dog's interview and provided before or at your scheduled appointment. If you arrive without the required paperwork, we will not be able to interview your dog. Dress Code: All dogs attending Daycare or Boarding must arrive on leash wearing a flat, quick release, snap on collar for their safety. Collars should be neither too tight nor too loose. Identification on their "daycare collar" is recommended. Any buckle, prong, or choke collars will be removed while dogs are playing.
WHAT TO PACK FOR BOARDING : Please Bring Your Dog's:
Food and Treats
Bedding (the comfier, the better!)
And anything else that you feel will make him or her more comfortable during their stay (such as their crate if your pet prefers that, your t-shirt with your scent, etc.)
RESERVATIONS: Required – 24 hour notice. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged full fees. Please call 239-262-1200 to make your reservation.
Temperament Testing: Health and Temperament Agreement
Temperament testing is required prior to the first day of boarding or daycare. During this time we allow your dog to become acclimated to our facility. A short while after their arrival, we will introduce your dog, one by one, to a small group of our regular daycare dogs. During this initial meeting, we will assess your dog's behavior and reactions to their new playmates. Once our staff decides that your dog is ready to be introduced to the rest of the pack, they will be let into the yard, along with their new friends.
The charge for the Temperament Test is $25 and will be credited to the first day of daycare or boarding if they are accepted. By appointment only. Please see our vaccination requirements.The online application and vaccination records are required before your temperment test can be done. What It's Like At Love My Dog Resort and Spa, your dogs get to play all day with their friends in Romping Rover's Rec Room, and then spend the night in their own, private, spacious den or luxury suite.
Lights out at 10 PM. Your Dog will be placed into a suite for their comfort and the comfort of the fellow guests to assure everyone gets a good nights rest. We have 24 hour caretakers to be with your loved one so they are never alone!
