All dogs experience some degree of stress while away from their owners. To help alleviate this, we ask that you bring familiar items with you for their stay. Beds and blankets are always welcome as well as their favourite toy or comforter. Please do not wash bedding before you come. The more familiar the smell, the better for your dog.
Additionally, it is our practice to use a DAP diffuser (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) to help settle your dog/s into their new surroundings.
The DAP is recommended by the Veterinarian Association, as a safe and natural way for your dog to feel protected and secure. For more information please click here.
