All dogs must have current rabies and bordatella (kennel cough). Distemper and canine influenza are recommended.

Social Boarding
The philosophy of this model of dog boarding is that the benefits of a social setting and open space outweigh the increased risk of a fight.

If you give me medicine, keep a couple days worth with you in case I do forget to bring it back so I can mail it back to you later without a crisis, or count out what I need for the stay and only give me as much as I need. Make sure the medicine is in a secure container that a dog or small child cannot open and clearly labelled with the name of the medicine, the name of the dog, and the instructions for giving the medicine. You should also put this information into your reservation in the comments field. Thank you.

Dog Food
You should not send your own dog food. There is a blog post about dog food at to explain why we do not want customer’s dog food and noting the types of food dogs get at camp. Please do not send your dog with dog food unless you have a confirmed and serious medical reason.

Sidewalk pick up/delivery on Monday and Thursday evening is included with the free van delivery option. Times are estimates.

Dog Stuff
Please do not send harnesses, choke or metal collars, bowls, or any other dog gear you would like returned. We have everything we need in terms of dog supplies and do not have a system for tracking and returning customer items. Do not send us stuff and then ask for it back.

Definition of Boarding
Boarding means we housed the dog. If we housed the dog for more than eight hours or transported the dog in the van for any distance, we have housed the dog as per the definition and a stay has occurred. Any claim that the instant or any boarding arrangement was “not as described” would indicate by definition that no boarding has occurred, as no other definition or description of boarding pertains in this binding agreement.

Definition of Negligance
The standard of gross negligence is under New York State law and by common agreement here Sommer v. Federal Signal Corp., 79 N.Y.2d 540, 554 (1992).

For the free delivery van, customers must have a responsible person available to communicate by text or SMS and confirm receipt of ETA during the course of the delivery or pick up day.
