How to Pack Your Dog's Food for a Boarding Stay
Food & Treats: Please send each meal in a baggie labeled with the date and time to be fed. For an easy way to label your baggies, click on "Easy food baggie labels" from the boarding tab. Include canned food and treats in these baggies too if you can. If your dog eats whenever he wants to at home, we recommend that you estimate the amount of food he would eat in a day and separate that amount into 2 meals so we can ensure he is eating an appropriate amount. (See below for an example)
Medications/Vitamins: Please put each dose of medicine or vitamins etc. in a separate baggie. Please put these medication baggies inside the food baggies. Don't package pills with "pill pockets" as the pills will get damp and begin to dissolve.
Staying one week or more? Please put about 1/3 more food than your dog normally eats each food baggie. He'll need extra calories to keep up! If a picky eater you can leave us a spare bag of food we can add in if needed.
Chewies & Rawhides: We don't allow rawhides, greenies or other chew toys because they can sometimes cause health problems. But don't worry, Woof Dah! always has lots of nyla-bones to chew on in the playrooms and Slumber Bay!
Food Labels: Please either put your food label inside the baggie of food or tape the food label to the bag. Staples are dangerous and can fall into your dog's food.
Wet Food: We are able to refridgerate food including canned and raw. Please be sure there are no bones in your dog's meals or raw food.
