We require documented proof of the following vaccinations on file prior to any dog visiting the hotel.
DHLPP - This is a vaccination that covers a group of diseases, including Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Para influena. You may see this vaccine listed as “DAPP, DHPP, DHLPP, DAP-2,” or other variants. Whatever combination your veterinarian uses, it must include Distemper and Parvovirus. These vaccines are usually good for 1 year at a time.
Rabies – Protects against the Rabies virus. First rabies shot for puppies is usually good for one year, and after that it is usually good for 3 years at a time.
Canine Influenza or dog flu-H3N2 Is a virus that is easily spread from infected dogs to other dogs by direct contact, nasal secretions (barking, coughing, sneezing), contaminated objects (kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collar or leashes) and by people moving between infected and uninfected dogs. The symptoms of canine influenza resemble Kennel Cough-Infectious tracheobronchitis in dogs. Symptoms of influenza include persistent coughing, fever, lethargy, eye discharge, and reduced appetite. It can cause mild to serve illness in some dogs also some dogs can be contagious and show no symptoms.
Bordetella – This is the “Kennel or Dog Cough” vaccine. Can be given orally, nasally, or via injection. If your dog receives the oral or nasal version of the vaccine, you must wait 7 days after administration before your dog can participate in boarding. Some dogs develop mild lethargy or soreness in the day or so after vaccination. In the case of killed vaccines containing an adjuvant, some thickening or lump formation may occur at the vaccination site. If this is painful or persists for more than a week or so with no decrease in size, consult your veterinarian. A few dogs will develop more severe reactions that are forms of hypersensitivity (allergy). These will usually occur within minutes, but may be delayed for a few hours. The dog may salivate, vomit, develop diarrhea or have difficulty breathing. Should this occur, consult your veterinarian immediately.
Bordetella and Canine Influenza (H2N2) is not routinely given, and must be requested for the health and safety of your pet and other's. It must be re-dosed every 6 months or one year.
Wagitude-Loved Dog Hotel and In Home Pet Sitting
- Reservatiosn email@example.com
Pet sitting is a professional service that provides customized, quality and loving care for your pet in the comfort of its own home. We are bonded and insured. In-home pet care is the choice of pet owners as a safe, reliable alternative to boarding their pets. A professional pet sitter provides peace of mind for everyone.
My promise to my pet parents:
It is my promise that your expectations and needs will be met, and that your pet/s will be provided a safe and secure environment to all client’s homes and pets while they are away. Dependability, reliable and detail-oriented care will be provided to your pets.
How many visits a day do you provide for pets?
For dogs, we recommend at least two visits per day, and is advisable they have access to outside at all times through a doggie door or outside kennel. This provides a lot of flexibility as to when we do our visits. For cats and other animals, we do a minimum of one visit per day. It is advised by veterinarians that cats should receive a minimum of once per day. Why? Because a cat can get into trouble or become ill quickly if more than 24 hours pass before they are checked on.
What are the hours of your pet visit?
Morning visits are typically between 7:00 - 10:00 am, mid-day visits 11:00 am - 2:00 pm and evening visits 4:00 - 8:00 pm.
How is your service different from part-time pet sitters, errand services, kid-next door pet sitting, or neighbors helping?
First and foremost, Wagitude Pet Sitting, is a professional service. That means that this is all we do for a living. Wagitude is Bonded and Insured, and ensures that if anything happens to your personal pet sitter, your pet care will continue, uninterrupted. Wagitude has many years of experience in caring for pets and belong to many professional organizations in the industry. I am a member of Professional Pet Sitters International, which provides ongoing information about pet-related issues and provides members with updated information for improving services. I truly LOVE what I do! More than a profession, pet sitting is a vocation. Unlike the part-timer, the errand service, or the kid-next-door who pet sit for extra cash, we have devoted ourselves to providing your pet the best possible care.
Do you accept all breeds of dogs as clients?
A very good question! We care for all breeds of dogs ONLY IF they are accepting of strangers coming into their home and that the individual dog (especially naturally protective breeds) does not, and has not displayed protective displays of aggression toward strangers. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept any dog in which we feel may be capable of fearful and/or aggressive related attacks. With specific breeds, as much as I love them, it is Wagitude’s policy to ask certain questions relating to the breed behaviors. This helps to protect your professional pet sitter, and your best friend.
Do You Offer Same Day Bookings or Last Minute Requests For Pet Care Services?
As a general rule we do not offer same day or last minute bookings. The reason for this is that a meet and greet is required, service many clients daily, and scheduling is a full -time job. However, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Regarding Holidays and Peak times-because it is extraordinarily busy, and because a meet and greet is required prior to a reservation in your home-there is an" Last Minute" extra service fee within 10 days of a holiday if a reservation is made within this time frame.
