Do I need to bring my dog’s bed & bowls?
We provide the dishes for all guests. At the end of each day the stainless steel bowls are sterilized so we ask for ease of the process that you leave your pets dishes at home and we just use ours. You may bring any bedding for you dog that you would like. At times, some pets will tear at a bed that they may normally not do damage to at home. If there is any concern about this please leave your bedding at home and we will provide warm and comfortable bedding of our own.Please keep in mind we do have a washer and dryer, and we will do out best to keep it clean and in good shape.
What should I bring with my pet to the Royal Pet Resort?
-You will need to bring vaccine certificates from your vet. We cannot keep your pet without these! You may also bring a dog bed if your pet has one at home. If you choose not to, we can provide one. Toys are bones may be brought as well. Please bring only toys/bones that your pet is used to. This is not the time to experiment with new treats.
Do you administer medication?
YES! Our staff members are trained in proper administration techniques for oral, topical and injectable medications. We typically keep a supply of peanut butter, cheese, and pill pockets to help entice picky eaters to consume their medications.
How are dogs chosen to participate in group play?
-Dogs must have some experience with socialization and be spayed or neutered if over seven months of age. They must also pass our Temperament Test. Once a dog is chosen, they are put into a group based on size, temperament, and play styles. Our staff is well trained on understanding dog interactions and group dynamics. We offer extensive staff training in order to make this a controlled, safe, fun experience for all.
Is there 24 hour supervision on site?
Of course! The owner lives on the property, and our staff checks on your pets on an hourly basis throughout the day.
"We've been taking our dogs to the Royal Pet Resort for 10 years, and I wouldn't even consider taking them elsewhere. From puppies to seniors, our dogs have always been in wonderful hands there and I know they are being taken excellent care of while we are away. While on our most recent trip on a cruise...the Royal Pet Resort allowed me to keep in touch with them and gave me updates on how our dogs were doing - I really appreciated that as our one dog is a senior with some mobility issues and the other a puppy who was making her first visit to the kennel. They take the time to get to know your dogs and you can tell they care for them as if they are their own. Prince, Diva (sadly now passed away, but went to the Royal Pet Resort her whole life), Roxy, and I all thank everyone at the Royal Pet Resort for taking such good care of our fur babies while we are away!"
