My dog is boarding with you, and I would like a family member/friend to pick him up and take him out a few times while I’m away. Is that okay?
We are very sorry, but our policy only allows dogs to leave our boarding facility when the boarding period has ended. The reason for this is because, for some of our favourite furry friends, it takes them a couple of days to settle into our routine, and get over missing their family. If the dog were to be picked up and taken out, and then returned to We Love Dogs, it would be like starting all over again at boarding for him or her. A typical day for our boarders is filled with group play, and different activities so they aren’t bored, or lying in a kennel all day. There is also a risk that your dog could become ill or injured while out and about (we all know how much they love to eat and sniff so many interesting things), and we would never want that to happen while they are primarily in our care. So while we understand that you are trying to make the boarding experience less stressful for your pup by having someone pick him up and take him out for a few hours, it could actually do the opposite. We appreciate your understanding, and we’re sure your dog will too. And we know, regardless of how much fun they have here, they are so very happy to see their family at the end of their stay!
