Boarding Policy 


Wagging Tail Ranch LLC strives to provide the best care for all our guests.  The following policies are to ensure or guests receive the best care possible in a healthy and safe environment. 


ADMISSION:  All Pets must be in good general health.  We reserve the right to deny admittance to any pets lacking proof of vaccinations, and/or pets displaying signs of untreated or potentially contagious conditions, and/or aggressive behavior.  Pets in heat will not be accepted.


Puppies will be accepted as long as we receive documentation of their first two sets of puppy vaccinations.  All puppies should receive final vaccinations by 16 weeks of age.  Must have doctors consent otherwise.


Prior to participating in any social activity, dogs must be spayed/neutered, temperament tested and approved.  Approved dogs may have social privileges revoked if their behavior changes and they become aggressive or dominant.


Wagging Tail Ranch reserves the right to charge handling fees for excessively difficult or aggressive pets requiring additional staff and/or additional time in order that we may deliver proper care for your pet.


VACCINATIONS:  All dogs and cats must be current on all vaccinations and must provide proof of vaccinations prior to staying at Wagging Tail Ranch LLC.  For dogs, we require rabies and distemper combo.  Cats must have current vaccinations for rabies and distemper.  All animals are encouraged to have a stool sample checked annually for parasites.


MEDICATIONS:  All medications supplied by owners must be in the original bottle, clearly labeled with the pet's name, name of medication, dosage, and reason for medication.  Medications can also be put in a labelled pill-planner, which will help us with proper distribution.  In either case, include the original bottle so we know what the medications is, and what it is for. 


FOOD:  We serve Nutri Source Grain Free Dog Food, which is a dry kibble food, to those guests requiring house dog food.  We encourage owners to provide their own food as it would be what their pet is use to eating. We want to maintain the dietary choices you've made and this helps ensure a comfortable transition from your home to the ranch and back home again.  We provide stainless steel food bowls and water dishes for each guest.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT:  All drop-offs and pick-ups  are done during regular business hours.  Appointments are appreciated, but not necessary.  When making your reservation, please let us know whether the drop-off and pick-up is likely to be in the morning or the afternoon.


OFFICE HOURS: Wagging Tail Ranch LLC will be open:

Monday thru Friday:    8am-11am and 3pm-6pm

Saturday and Sunday: 8am-11am and 4pm-6pm

 All drop off and pickup should be made during these hours only.


HOLIDAYS:  We may be closed to the public or have limited hours on certain holidays.  Please refer to our website or call for our holiday hours.


DAMAGES:  Any property damaged made by the pet during the pets stay will be billed and paid for by the pets owner. 


EMERGENCIES: In case of an emergency we will contact you or your listed emergency contact.  We will use our on call emergency Veterinary Hospital for emergency treatment.
