- Can I bring my dog's bed?
It's not necessary! We provide each personal suite with a Kuranda bed and a soft-fleece blanket. The raised Kurundra beds are orthopedic, chew-resistant, and made especially for dogs.
- Do I have to bring my own dog food?
Yes. We strongly encourage you to bring your dog's food. Any change in your pets feeding habits may cause an upset tummy. We ask that you pre-portion your pet's meal for each meal in a ziplock bag. If your pet requires medication, we ask that you do not place medication in food bags. Please provide medication in its original container.
- What is required for my pet to come to It's A Dog's Life Doggy Daycare & Resort?

They must be at least 16 weeks old. They must have received the Rabies, 6 month Bordetella, DHLPP, and Canine Influenza H3N2 or combo vaccine from a licensed veterinarian.
They must be spayed/neutered by 8 months of age. They must meet all of our health requirements. They must complete a temperament test.
Cats in our care must be at least 16 weeks old, and they must have received the Rabies and FVRCCP vaccine from a licensed veterinarian.
- Are reservations required?
We do not require reservations; however, we highly recommend a reservation for boarding to ensure we have a suite that meets your accommodations. During the holidays we generally meet our capacity months in advance, so please take that in to consideration when booking for your vacations.
- Can I bring my dog's favorite toy?
For the safety of all dogs in our care, we only allow antlers for dogs.
- Can all of my dogs stay together in one suite?
Sure! We will be happy to accommodate your pets' stay by allowing them the comfort of staying together.
- Will It's A Dog's Life Doggy Daycare & Resort administer my pet's medication?
Absolutely! We just ask that the medication come in its original container. We also are only able to administer as it is prescribed on the container unless otherwise noted by a veterinarian. We can give medications up to three times a day. We use pill pockets to administer the medication unless otherwise addressed.
We are trained to administer all types of medications such as: eye drops, ear drops, pills, ointments, insulin injections, and others.
- What happens if my dog gets sick while at It's A Dog's Life Doggy Daycare & Resort?
We will make every attempt to contact you or your emergency contact to discuss the situation. From here, we will discuss further options. If we cannot reach you, It's A Dog's Life Doggy Daycare & Resort will seek veterinary attention from our on-site veterinarian or 24 hour veterinarian.
- Why is my pup so tired and thirsty after visiting It's A Dog's Life Doggy Daycare & Resort?
Since our facility is an open play facility, your dog has the opportunity to play all day long. Rest breaks do occur, and they have all night to sleep, but play time occupies their days here. They had their own vacation and had a lot of fun, and they now need to regroup as you would from your own vacation.
We assure you that your pet had access to water through their stay 24 hours a day. The excitement of being reunited with their family members may results in drinking an excessive amount of water upon their return home.
