Boarding Contract

    E-signature of this form applies to all future visits to Dogs Bay Country Club for Dogs

    Drop Off/Pick Up: 9am-11am or 6-7 pm. 6-7 pm pick up is an extra day's charge.

    Required Vaccines: Rabies, Distemper, Bordatella, Heartworm Test and a negative fecal. Fecals are due every 6 months.  We highly recommend the parainflueza and H3N3/H3N8 flu vaccine and a 7 day waiting period after a first time bordatella vaccine. Please note, we try to send out vaccine reminders as a courtesy, but it is your responsibility to keep your pet’s vaccine information updated and faxed over by your veterinarian after relevant vet visits. We do not send out vaccine reminders.

    Emergency Policy: In the event of an emergency, we will notify the emergency contact person designated on your enrollment form. Please understand, we have no way to transport your pet to a veterinarian, so it’s very important your emergency contact person is available and willing to care for or transport your pet to the vet, including the nearest 24 hour emergency care facility.

    Illness Policy: We cannot accept any dogs with the following; fleas, parasites, vomiting, diarrhea, eye or nose discharge unrelated to allergies, contagious skin condition or cough. If your dog shows any signs of these conditions while in our care, we will separate your pet to a special quarantine area and contact your veterinarian for instructions. You will be responsible for any fees related to treatment.

    Health & Wellness: This is where Dogs Bay really stands out from our competition! We have several protocols in place to ensure your fur friend is happy and healthy while boarding with us. These include a diarrhea protocol if your dog gets a loose stool, laundry and "spot" baths if your dog has an accident, chicken/rice to entice a dog who is not eating, wellness checks for dogs who become sick or injured, extra potty breaks for dogs who are having accidents, Calming treats for dogs who are fearful or over excited causing stress, a homeopathic cough suppressant for suspected kennel cough, etc. We may also add some ball time for a high energy dog who is struggling or extra Cuddles N Hugs for a sensitive dog who needs extra attention. We will do whatever we need to for the health and wellness of your fur baby while entrusted in our care. You will be responsible for any fees associated with these extra services. We will do our best to keep the cost down, but the health and safety of the fur kids is our number one priority.

    Senior Dogs: Our Senior Center Package is mandatory for dogs 10 and older. Price is $8/day in addition to your selected boarding fee. It includes non-skid rubber flooring in their suite, extra potty breaks, heated bed (if non-chewer), a special report card and wellness checks twice a day. We also require a special medical release form at check in. Price is $8/day in addition to your selected boarding fee.

    Puppies: Our Puppy Package is required for puppies under 9 months old. It includes a special introduction to friends by our in-house Certified Trainer, a special introduction to dog friends approved by our in-house Certified Trainer, extra potty breaks, evening Cuddles N Hugs and a nylabone. Our Puppy Package is mandatory for all dogs under 9 months old. Price is $8/day in addition to your selected boarding fee.

    Dog Bite Policy: We do everything we can to ensure a happy and safe environment, however dogs are animals and can be unpredictable, even in the safest environment. In the event your dog is bitten, you hold harmless all parties, including Dogs Bay staff. If your dog bites a human, you will be liable under the laws in the State of Michigan.

    Payment: Payment is due at time services are rendered. We accept cash/check and all major credit cards. Cash payments qualify for a $2/night discount!

    Please check that you agree to the following:

    I understand my pet’s photo will be published on Dogs Bay’s Facebook page and may be used in other website and/or marketing materials.

    I understand the Health & Wellness policy as listed above.

    All information I provided in my pet’s profile is true to the best of my knowledge. I agree to inform Dogs Bay Inc. if my dog ever bites another dog or human, while enrolled in the program.

    Unless Reservation Insurance is purchased, I understand I will be financially responsible according to the holiday and non-holiday cancellation policy.

    I understand if the VIP package is chosen, dogs not regularly socialized or not exposed to the activity level of community play time, run a higher risk on injury and/or incident, which may require frequent breaks, time outs or your pet being on a long leash. I assume all liability for my dog's own injuries in the event of a doggie disagreement.

    I agree to have my dog on a leash at all times, coming to and from the facility and while on the property.

    I agree to bring my dog on a properly fitted quick release collar. If you do not, one will be purchased at check in, and $5 will be added to your invoice.

    I certify my dog is in good health and can participate in all package activities.

    Provided all due and diligent care is exercised to the best of the Dogs Bay Team’s ability, I hereby waive and release Dogs Bay Inc., from all liability, including medical expenses and attorney fees, due to illness, injury or any other nature.
