STAYING WITH US

 

BELONGINGS

 

Your dog will be provided:
  • A Kuranda bed
  • Bowls for food and water
Permitted Items:

When choosing items to bring for your pet’s stay, we recommend an item that smells like home to help your pet feel comfortable with us. We also ask that you bring items you trust your pet to have while unsupervised. All items must be labeled with your pet’s first and last name – if they are not pre-labeled by you, we will label them for you.

  • Blankets or towels
  • Safe chew toys
    ► Will you accept Bully Sticks, Kongs, etc.?

    Items generally considered to be safe we will accept include, but are not limited to: Antlers, Bully Sticks, Kongs, tennis balls, and chew toys that do not pose a choking risk. Please note, we may refuse any chew toy that we find to be harmful.

Prohibited Items:
  • Any bedding that contains stuffing or foam
  • Any item that cannot be washed
  • Any chew toy may be refused if we find it harmful
  • Rawhide bones and other edible chews (such as cooked bones)
    ► Why?

    These bones can pose a choking and blockage risk in dogs, as well as digestive irritation. If your dog swallows large pieces of rawhide or splintered bone, the pieces or shards can get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract. For this reason, Lucky Paws staff will not give rawhides and other edible chews to our 4 legged clients while they are in our care. We strongly encourage antlers or Kongs as an alternative to this type of edible chew. Your pet’s health is important to us!

 

CHECKING IN

 

  • Please remove all collars.
    • Lucky Paws removes all personal collars, harnesses, tags, and other “jewelry” as we like to call it (bandanas, clothing, bow-ties, etc.) unless special circumstances are considered.
    • This policy includes the removal of flea and tick collars.
      ► Why?

      All flea and tick collars have the potential to leave a chemical residue on anyone who touches them. At Lucky Paws we strive to create a healthy environment for our guests and staff alike. If you have concerns about fleas and ticks, we recommend speaking to your vet about alternative products to use while visiting Lucky Paws. We thank you for your attention to this requirement.

    • Your dog will be fitted with a temporary name band during their stay with us.
