What does my dog need for an overnight stay?
Here is a list of things to help your dog feel right at home in our cabins without getting homesick!
- Favourite bed, blankets or pillows they are used to! Even an old t-shirt that smells like you can help to settle your pup.
- A crate is also welcome if you regularly crate your dog at night
- Dog food and treats (don’t forget to put an extra scoop in case pick-up is delayed). We strongly recommend, pre-portioned is meals in ziplock bags, or provide a sealed container of food for longer stays. Please note, that it is easier to feed your dog correctly if we are given the actual measurements that you would like your dog fed (such as 1/2 cup twice per day, rather than 1/2 a scoop twice per day). We have measuring cups at WLD so you only need to provide the food. We are able to accommodate food that requires refrigeration/freezing/thawing.
- Toys or something familiar that smells like home! (yes, even that old sock that your pup likes to snuggle with)
- Any medications or supplements your dog is taking. This can include pain medications that are not given every day, but may be something your dog requires during their stay. Please provide administration instructions if bringing any medications along.
- Please do not bring your dog’s bowls as many times due to the washing of bowls after meals they get mixed in with WLDs bowls, and may not be returned to you by mistake.
Overnight boarding and kenneling is not a good time to switch dog foods or purchase new toys/bedding. Things that are familiar bring less stress to dogs especially in a new environment!
