Common Boarding Questions

Can I take my dog out during the day?

Absolutely!  Your pet is available to you anytime during our office hours.  We know your pet is a member of the family and understand you want to spend time with them on your vacation. 


We do require a credit card on file when taking your pet and that all 4 legged friends be back in our facility 1/2 hour prior to closing.

Can I walk through the Kennel?

Here at Lake Farm we do not offer a walk through of our facility.  We do this to keep all of our guests happy and feeling comfortable.  Just as your pet would be uncomfortable with a stranger in your home, the same goes for strangers coming in and out of the kennel (their home while staying with us). 

We are more than happy to show you one of our vacant pens. 

What should I bring for my Pet?
  • One or more of your pets favorite toys 

  • A t-shirt that smells like you (this keeps your pet feeling at home)

  • Your pets favorite treats or bones

  • Beds and blankets are more than welcome if they are not too large, we like to be able to wash them if needed

  • Your pets own food and treats if they require a special diet (or if they are just a picky eater)
    We do suggest if this is your first time boarding with us that you bring your pup's regular food to try and not upset their routine any more than it already is.

Is there staff in the kennel not during office hours?

Yes!  Though we may be closed, we use this time to really focus on our guests to make sure all are getting the best possible care, love, and attention they deserve. 

Our office hours do not reflect the time we are here tending to your pets.


All boarding, daycare, and grooming reservations will not be confirmed until proof of vaccinations are provided.

If a vaccination is needed between the time of reservation and your stay, we ask that the appointment be made before calling;  and that the records be sent over the day they are given.
