To attend Burlingame Pet Sitting Dog Boarding, your dog must be social and tolerant of other dogs as well as cats. Dogs that may be aggressive, or overly protective of toys and food, cannot be included in our Boarding groups.
- Dogs should be at least 1 year old and fully house trained
- Spayed or Neutered
- Dogs must weigh under 15 pounds
- Have a secure collar with ID attached
- Be recently bathed and have trimmed nails
- Protected by a topical flea & tick control such as: Front Line®, Advantage®, Comfortis®, or Revolution®
- Current on the following vaccinations with proof: DHLPP (or similar), Bordetella (kennel cough), and Rabies
Once your dog passes the screening questions, we will plan a ‘meet and greet’ on site. Some dogs will need to do a trial night of boarding at Burlingame Pet Sitting to see how things go before acceptance of a full boarding booking.
Things to bring for your Dog:
- Pre-packaged food in sealed Ziploc bags that is measured out for each feeding. Unfortunately, we cannot freely feed your dog and changing a dog’s diet or food type can cause a dog to feel unwell
- Include enough food for a few extra feedings just in case your arrival home becomes delayed
- Include a bed or blanket and toys or treats that your dog likes
- Bring your dog’s leash (non-retractable only) and a collar with clearly marked ID tags
- Supply your dog’s crate if you prefer for them to be crated at any time
- Supply any vitamins or medications your dog needs
- Bring enough supplies for your dog to last for your entire absence: There will be a $35 fee to “go shopping” for you, plus the purchase price of any items we need to buy.
We want your dog to be comfortable and happy. If your dog becomes destructive, aggressive, or acts in any manner that would put the other dogs or our home in jeopardy — you will need to have an emergency contact who can be called to pick up your dog, or an alternate boarding facility that we can take them to. No refunds will be provided. If you do not provide an alternate, one will be chosen by Burlingame Pet Sitting and you will be responsible for any additional charges. While this has never happened because of our careful pre-screening process, we advise all clients just in case.
