First-Time Dog Boarding Expectations

If you’re boarding your best friend for the first time ever, it’s completely understandable for both you and your pet to have a little anxiety. You’ve probably got a million questions about how the facility runs, whether or not your pup will be lonely, and how well they’ll be cared for. The separation is just as tough for some owners as it is for their pets. But don’t worry! Beds-N-Biscuits has the answers you’re looking for, along with a safe and comfortable place for your dog to stay. Read more to learn about what you can expect when boarding your dog with Beds-N-Biscuits.

Make a Dog Boarding Reservation

First thing’s first, call (303) 940-9188 to speak with a reservation specialist about rates and availability. You can also learn about our packages, premium bedding options, extra playtime, and other add-ons that will help your dog feel right at home. When speaking with the reservation specialist be sure to communicate any pertinent information they should know about your dog, such as special foods or medical care they might require. Finally, feel free to stop by for a facility tour. We’ll be happy to show you around so you can feel confident in your choice to use Beds-N-Biscuits for your dog boarding needs.

Send Us Your Vaccine Records

Before arrival, double check your dog’s veterinary records and verify that they’re up to date on all their vaccinations. Beds-N-Biscuits requires all dogs to be vaccinated for rabies, distemper, and canine cough (Bordetella). We cannot accept your dog without proof of vaccinations.

Checking In

The intake process is fairly simple, and our staff makes it a priority to make it easier on pet owners and first-timers. Before you get to the boarding facility, ensure that you’ve packed things neatly in whatever bag you choose to store your dog’s items in. Bring a copy of your dog’s vaccination information, as well as any medication your dog may need. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, it’s advisable to bring his or her own food. All food should be individually portioned by, clearly labeled with the dog’s name, and instructions for feeding. All Medications should be in the original bottles from the pharmacy as this is Colorado State Law. At the time of check-in, advise the staff of any special medical or behavioral concerns you may have. Let us know if you’d like your dog to have a bath at the end of his or her stay. During the cold season here in Colorado, we have blankets available for the dog runs and for the overnight guests. There is no need for you to bring your dog’s blanket.

While You’re Away

Weather permitting, your dog will have all-day outdoor play time with other dogs of the same size and temperament. While your dog is outside playing, his or her kennel will be cleaned and disinfected each day. Our play yards are supervised and equipped with water, shade, and cooling misters for the hot days of summer. In the winter, the outdoor play schedule is adapted to shelter the dogs from extreme cold. Our indoor kennels are fully heated in the winter. Dogs who need to limit their playtime for medical reasons can be provided with smaller private or semi-private outdoor space.

As our staff cleans and feeds, they’ll also be noting key information on “report cards” to keep track pertinent information during their stay. This way, you’ll have a full report to view once pickup time comes!

And don’t forget to check out our Daily Photostream where you can see photos of your dog updated throughout the day.
