Additional pictures of our facility can be found on our Facebook page.
Tours are welcome any time during our office hours. If you consider coming by after lunch it allows us to have sufficient time to give you the tour and answer any questions you may have.
Just a few safety things that we have thought about that you may not even realize, just for extra peace of mind.
This list might not include everything, but we tried to include even the little things that may seem like common sense.
We have tried not to overwhelm you with information but still provide you with some insight into our facility, if you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
Question: When can I drop off or pick up my pet?
Answer: You can drop off or pick up anytime during our office hours Monday to Friday 9am-6pm and Weekends 10am- 6pm. We charge per night - not per day.
If you would like to arrange a drop off or pick up other than the posted times, it may be possible for an additional charge. These special circumstances will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and will require the customers to communicate this request at the time of booking.
There is a 4-day minimum charge between December 22nd and December 28th. These bookings require a deposit. Unless you have a history of cancelling last minute or not showing up for reservations there is no need to pay a deposit for general bookings.
We require a minimum 48-hour notice of cancellation for all bookings. We often have a waiting list, and this ensures we have enough time to fill the cancelled space. Failing to give this required notice will result in a $66.00 late cancellation fee. Please be considerate of other guests and give us as much notice as possible.
Question: What vaccines does my pet need for boarding?
Answer: We feel that the decision to vaccinate your dog is a choice to be made between you and your veterinarian, based on your dogs individual medical needs. We will accept non-vaccinated animals, only after consulting with your veterinarian about their overall health and/or antibody titre count verification. Dogs require the combination vaccine (includes distemper, adeno, parvo and parainfluenza) and Rabies. Please ensure that you have all vaccinations done at minimum 14 days prior to boarding with us.
We do recommend the Bordetella vaccine ("kennel cough" vaccine) but like all vaccines, it must be done a minimum of 14 days before your dog comes to board. The Bordetella vaccine is not required.
Cats require current FRCP, (Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia) and current Rabies vaccination.
Question: I don't want to kennel my pet. How can Paws Wright Inn help?
Answer: Nobody 'wants' to kennel their pet - we understand that. Boarding your animal while you're away can be a safe alternative. We've specifically designed the accommodations at our facility with your pet in mind. The accommodations are roomy, yet they provide a sense of comfort and safety, and your pets are boarded individually for privacy while eating and sleeping. We have three fenced exercise yard for individual off-leash or group play time. If the animal has never been boarded before, usually the first night is an adjustment period. Once they realize that they get play time, they're being fed, and that they're still getting attention and care, they settle in just fine. You're more than welcome to give us a call or send an e-mail to get an update on your pet during their stay. If time permits, we do suggest bringing your pet for day boarding or an overnight stay before a longer booking. We find it can help the more nervous dogs settle in better if they're more comfortable coming and going from our facility.
Question: Do you only board pets while people take holidays?
Answer: Not at all. There are many reasons why people may need to board their pets. These may include:
Question: What if my dog has diarrhea at the kennel? What if my dog comes home with diarrhea?
Answer: A diet change can cause diarrhea in a dog with a sensitive stomach. Sometimes excitement in a dog can transfer to their stomach. The excitement can be happy excitement and it may be nervous excitement, but the end result is sometimes they have diarrhea. Frequent poop scooping allows us to not only keep the area clean but allows us to monitor your pet's bowel movements as well. If your pet is still happy, active and hydrated they can be managed with a bland diet (such as rice, boiled chicken, or a gastrointestinal diet from a veterinary clinic) in addition to probiotics. If your pet is lethargic and has no interest in drinking small amounts of water, they may need to be seen by a veterinarian.
Question: What is required to make a reservation?
To make a reservation we need your name, phone number, the dogs' name(s) and the dates you would like to board.
