To Serve and Protect ….your Pets!
As dog owners ourselves, we know that one of the hardest things to do is to board your pets when you need to be away from home. We understand that trusting your dog with us is like trusting us with your child. What’s worse than your pet being in a strange place? Being in a strange place all alone!
NO Worries, Fur The Love of Dogs Inc. is happy to provide Cage Free Sleepovers and Dog Daycare in a fun, safe environment, with Staff on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! Cage-Free Overnight means the same stress-free environment we have been providing during the daytime, but on nights and weekends too! We are closed for drop off/pick up on these holidays: New years day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day. (there is a $32.50 additional charge for holiday stays)
We wouldn’t keep our dog in a crate for 12 hours so we won’t do it to yours! A pet care specialist is present to cuddle all night long and there is plenty of comfortable bedding to go around. Best of all your pet has the freedom to choose to sleep on dog beds, blankets or curled up with an employee (always a popular choice). It’s a doggy slumber party!
If you would like to stay with us and you have already completed your Temperament Assessment please call 72 hours (3 days) in advance to reserve a spot in our safe, clean, secure environment – 815-675-3877. We are not volume-based with a capacity quota to meet, the number of dogs we accept for sleepovers depends on the current reservations.
Temperament testing for daycare or sleepovers are always FREE!
All dogs attending day care, sleepovers, or training in our facility are required to have the following updated vaccines at least 3-7 days prior to reservation. Bordetella (kennel cough) (every 6-12 months), Rabies and Distemper (DHLLP), also for the safety of our pets and their friends we require your pet to be on flea/tick & heart worm prevention year-round of your choosing. Although all dogs must be vaccinated and we disinfect regularly, it is still possible for your pet to contract any virus or bacteria. For this reason, it is important for you to communicate any illness or irregularities you notice with your dog prior to your scheduled stay over.
Here are some tips and requirements for packing that doggie suitcase….
We welcome all diets and special feeding instructions with no extra charges. Please supply food for your dog that is prepackaged meals into individual zip lock bags (1 baggie per meal). Due to limited space, please only bring the amount of food needed for your dog’s stay, 20lbs or larger bags of food will only be accepted if you have multiple pets staying for an extended period of time. If you are dropping off multiple pets, please indicate if they need to be fed separately. Please include 1-2 extra days food in case of flight cancellations, extended trip stay etc. Add 1/2 to 1 cup additional food per meal as extra calories are sometimes needed to keep up with your pet’s activity level.
We want your pet to be as comfy as he/she can be while staying with us so feel free to bring a t-shirt or small blanket with your smell on it and we will make sure it’s tucked in with your pet at night. There is no need to bring toys, bowls, or anything that can become lost or torn up from another dog playing with it. *We do not encourage sending bones or rawhides with your pet’s stay.
All medications must be clearly labeled with your pet’s name and administration instructions (time, amount, duration). Please feel free to include a note with any special care that is needed to be kept in their file while they stay with us.
These packages are provided to our clients with all the things your pet would have in their own home. We put your dog first and they will feel like you never left! Each dog must be social & for the safety of our fur friends and staff each client must have proper paperwork on file to stay with us. We look forward to meeting your pet!!
