What does my dog do when they are boarding?
While your dog boards with us, he or she participates with the regular daycare dogs each day – weekends included (although there is usually a much smaller group). Our overnight guests are up each morning around 5 and go for a potty break, that is followed by breakfast in their cabin, and then once the daycare dogs arrive they join with that group. If they are more senior, or have lunch, they may return to their K9 cabin mid-day for a break, and then return to the group for the afternoon. Around 5 p.m. they return to their cabin to chill before dinner which is typically served between 5:30 and 6:00. After the daycare dogs go home, they go back outside for a little quieter roam around. Around 10/10:30 p.m. they all go back out again, nighttime treats are given, and then they are all tucked in for the evening. Many of the staff love to take the time at the end of the day to go into the cabins with our boarders and have some hugs.
As safety is our first priority, WLD is supervised around the clock, so even overnight guests have supervision and care! Staff are there to ensure dogs are safe and comfortable, and give them late night and early morning potty breaks.
Overnight staff do not unlock the door for any reason, to ensure the utmost safety to themselves and the dogs. In addition to a security system and camera monitoring, we also have an overnight guard dog that stays in the building at night to add an extra layer of safety.
You can rest assured that your dog is in our safe care around the clock.
