Things to Know for Your Pet’s Upcoming Stay

Not sure what to pack for your pet’s stay at Applewood Pet Resort? We understand that packing for your dog, cat, or small animal can be just as difficult as packing for yourself for your own vacation! Here’s a convenient list to make your preparations easier.

Before Your Pet’s Stay

At Applewood Pet Resort, every precaution is taken to avoid sickness and out-breaks amongst our guests. To maintain that commitment to your pet’s health, we require your pet to be fully vaccinated and must be certified by your veterinarian to be able to check in. Here is a list of vaccinations we require:

Canine Vaccinations
  • Distemper/Parvo

  • Rabies

  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)

Special Note: As of March 2017, we are strongly recommending the Leptospirosis (Lepto) vaccination, though we are not yet requiring it. 

Feline Vaccinations
  • Feline Distemper/Parvo (FVRCP)

  • Feline Rabies

This means your dog or cat needs to be at least 16 weeks (4 months) old to board with us as this is the typical age in which they receive their last round of puppy/kitten shots and are considered fully vaccinated.

In order for us to verify that your pet has all the required vaccinations, please bring in or have your vet fax us your pet’s latest vaccination records. This is required for your pet to stay with us.

What to Pack for Your Pet

What to Expect at Check-In

1. Every Dog that arrives for boarding will be given a personalized resort collar to wear. On this collar will be printed his name, identifying info, room info, and the Resort’s contact info. We use our own leads here at the resort, so we return your own leash and collar so you can bring it back when you pick up. If you’ve designated someone else to pick up your dog, you’re more than welcome to leave the leash and collar here so it can go home with the dog.

2. We’ll need to verify vet information, vaccination records, and flea & tick prevention.

3. We’ll need a credit or debit card to put on file and a medical contract in case of medical emergencies (renewed every year).

4. Your dog will first visit our potty break runs before being escorted to his room. This reinforces the routine of going potty outside.
