Why do we require an on-site exam?
First and foremost, we want to establish a relationship with you and your pet. Additionally, we would like to identify any underlying medical conditions that affect the health of your pet and our other boarders (e.g., flea and tick infestation). We also need to determine if your pet has any heart or respiratory conditions which would affect how long they can be outside or play. Finally, the exam allows us to prescribe for and/or treat any medical conditions that can be brought on by the stress of boarding.

DDH Check-in/Check-out Policy:
We have our office staffed for you to check in to the Davie Dog House, or to pick up your pets from boarding during specific hours. Boarding drop-off starts at 9am - appointments required. Our staff will call you the day before to schedule a specific drop-off time. We have trained staff here to ensure that your pets go home with all their belongings and a report on their  stay. 

Remember that our boarding rates are per day, so if you board a dog over the weekend (Fri-Sun)  you are charged for 3 days of boarding.  There is no Sunday pick up fee. Under special circumstances, the DDH manager may approve a check out that is outside these hours for an additional fee.

We are frequently asked why your pets cannot be picked up anytime that the kennel staff is here.  There are many reasons, but most important is the safety of the kennel staff and the pets that are here. The kennel team do not know you like we do, and there is always a risk of a person coming by with unscrupulous intentions.  The kennel team is responsible for your pets and also the entire hospital and supplies.  They have been instructed not to open the door or return your pets without previous knowledge of an arranged pick up or a manager here.     

*If we have never seen the pet, we will perform an exam prior to boarding and charge a exam fee at drop off.
