 Separation from you and being in a new environment can sometimes produce stress in your dog. Stress can result in lowered immunity and resistance and sometimes even temporary changes in behavior. To help reduce this stress, we highly recommend a pre-board stay to familiarize your dog with our facility.

 We understand that this may be the first time that you are leaving your dog for an extended period of time, but please do not take this opportunity to over-indulge your dog with treats before coming to Jo Ann’s Furry Friends because you feel bad leaving him. Giving your dog unfamiliar food especially in large quantities can cause an upset stomach which can lead to diarrhea and ultimately, an unpleasant experience. Help us to make this the best stay possible for your pet.

Plan ahead! Dog boarding is a very popular service, and we tend to book up quickly. Plan to reserve your dog's kennel as soon as you are aware of the dates you need.

 All dogs must be free of internal and external parasites, and must not have been exposed to any contagious disease. If any fleas are found, your dog must be bathed at your expense. For the sake of all dogs in our care, we reserve the right to deny boarding to any dog lacking the required vaccinations, any dog that appears to be behaviorally unsound or any dog that may have been exposed to contagious disease or internal or external parasites.

                                                      

When you pick up your dog he will be very excited to see you. Here are some helpful hints to help make the transition back to home as smooth as possible.
Your dog may be a little hoarse due to communicating with other boarding guest. This temporary irritation should dissipate in a week or two.
When dogs are excited they tend to drink large amounts of water very quickly which may cause them to vomit. Please pace your dog’s water by giving them small amounts at a time for the first few hours.

Dog Boarding is a shared responsibility between you and your dog boarding kennel. Successful dog boarding depends not only on the kennel, but also on how well you prepare your dog in advance. Naturally, a dog who is relaxed about boarding will have a good experience and enjoy their stay. The best way to prepare your dog is to begin boarding while it is still young. Younger dogs adapt to new situations quicker than older dogs. It will also help to bring your dog in for short visits in preparation for a long visit.
