Dog Boarding Tour And Process
Dog boarding brings to mind images of lonely animals in small kennels. These facilities are sterile, offer little in the way of enrichment, and can elevate stress levels in your dog. When you can’t be there, it’s the last environment you want to leave them in. That’s why we’ve designed an open, cage-free, and interactive facility for pet boarding services. When you’re looking for outstanding dog boarding near Happy Valley, look no further. At Safe Journey Dog Boarding our goal is to ensure you and your dog are as comfortable as possible. Before your pet stays with us we always try to schedule a tour of our facility. And when you do arrive we kindly request that you call, to ensure the safety and comfort for your dog and the others. This allows both of you to experience the facilities beforehand.
During the tour, we will inform you of the pick-up and drop-off services we offer as well as explain outdoor procedures. Our pet boarding services include a cage-free environment for friendly animals. At this time we will evaluate your animal to identify what accommodations we will be able to provide. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about our facility as we show you sleeping, eating, and play areas. If there are no concerns we will continue with arrangements, providing your animal with a free day of dog daycare Portland for familiarization and socialization.
We'll only need a few things in order to provide your canine with a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Make sure to bring:
- Your companion's favorite leash
- Your dog's preferred food
- A form of payment
For the safety of your personal belongings, we ask that you not bring any items that may be forgotten, damaged, or act as a source of possessiveness or defensiveness for your canine. The nature of our facilities ensures your animal will receive plenty of exercise without the need for personal toys. We have found that most of our boarders do not use beds brought from home as our canine facility contains plenty of cozy places for resting and sleeping. During the tour, it is a great time to bring up any special needs your animal may have. Our facilities and staff are equipped to care for special needs animals.
Comprehensive Canine Boarding
Expansive Facilities: Our team members execute all instructions regarding your animal's medication, feeding, and behavior to the letter. Our spacious 1,400 square foot facility is completely open to your dog. It features a sun deck, a safe and secure outdoor area and layered security including double gates for entry and exits.
Outdoor play and potty area: We’ve installed double gates in our outdoor area for extra safety. A wonderful outdoor space makes potty and playtime safe year-round. All of this allows our visitors outdoor time in a carefully monitored and controlled environment.
Indoor play and rest area: Our indoor space is climate-controlled and promotes toy-free play. This eliminates the possibility of items that can cause disputes between the dogs and promotes harmony. We kindly ask that you don’t bring bedding or toys. Our facility has many areas for a night’s sleep or quick dog nap and most of our furry friends rarely use the beds from home.
Meal-time Accommodations: We feed all of our current furry visitors one at a time in a designated room. We'll provide your animal with one treat at this time if you have supplied any. This is so the treat is considered part of their meal, and does not pose a risk of negative interactions later on. As our personal animals are always on the premises, your companion will never be alone when dog boarding with us!
Schedule: Regular hours are from 7 am to 7 pm. Your canine will have total access to both the indoor and outdoor facilities. 7 pm is when we close the outdoor facilities for the night, though we will have several bathroom breaks prior to midnight. 7 am is when we re-open the outdoor facilities to our canine guests. Our indoor facility is climate controlled, and our outside area is pesticide-free. For the best in crate-free home dog boarding in Happy Valley, contact Safe Journey Dog Boarding.
