Our Boarding ServicesBoarding your dog for extended periods is a little different than daycare, we encourage you to become acquainted with our environment and services. At Roaming Rovers our guests have a warm and secure indoor rec room and lounge area with fireplace. The dogs share an outdoor run with excellent ground drainage and is cleaned daily. There is a large open area and wooded area where we run the dogs that are good off leash. For high energy dogs this is where they are able to burn it off. At night dogs sleep either in our rec room, office area or if crated we have room for crated dogs only.
We understand that leaving your dog is stressful for you and for some dogs. We wish to meet all dogs for a visit and for dogs who are not at ease during that visit we recommend they stay for one night prior to them staying an extended period of time. This will allow us to give you feedback on how your dog did while away from you. This will help you make a better informed decision and for dogs who don't think they have gone to "the doggie park" it will give them a brief experience before you return for them. Please call us to schedule visits. We may be hiking, grooming or training and we like to schudule visits if at all possible around clients coming and going.
A change in diet often is difficult for most dogs and not recommended by veterinarians. For this reason please bring enough food for your dogs stay. It is a good idea to bring extra. Please do not send glass or ceramic dishes or containers because dogs being dogs they can get knocked down and broken. If you are not able to send the food please let us know ( in advance if at all possible) the brand they eat and we will arrange to pick this up and charge you the cost and a small fee for picking it up. Please bring treats for your dogs (please do not send bones as they cause issues between dogs) and advise us of any allergies or safety issues. Any medications, creams or ointments will be dispensed as required for no additional charge.
Our Dog Daycare
In general Dog Daycare works similar to daycare for children. It begins by dropping your dog off in the morning and picking him/her up after work. We make your dog's health and well being a priority so that he/she may enjoy the day here at Roaming Rovers. They play with other dogs, inside or outside, or he/she may be the type to while away the hours by relaxing on the couch in front of a roaring fire, seasonal of course. Daycare gives dogs experience with different breeds and personalities. They get exercised and stimulated. We work on socialization issues some dogs may have and very basic obedience. Lots of toys lots of room equals lots of fun!
