Happy-Bailey2

What your pooch can expect during his stay at Ballypines…

*All outdoor play and areas in which your dog will have access to are determined by your dog’s needs and temperament.

*Outdoor play consists of running with other dogs, playing fetch, water time (warmer  months), chilling in the great outdoors, and walks.

Ballypines has now celebrated over four years of growth and development!  We remain a small business,  which allows your dog to receive the one-on-one time he deserves, as well as the custom-tailored dog care that will help him feel more comfortable in a new place. We now have 13 cabins available for your pooch to visit and enjoy!

All rooms are climate controlled, offer a couch, fresh water, and whatever else you think will provide those daily comforts and scents of home.  

Although some rooms do have runs available, we determine which room would keep your dog the happiest and most comfortable, and assign the rooms accordingly.  Run doors are shut during extreme weather conditions as well as at night.

Bedding and personal belongings

We request that you bring your own bedding and blankets from home. (PLEASE bring clean bedding!!  We cannot accept dirty bedding or blankets!) If your bedding requires cleaning during your dog’s stay, there will also be a 2$ charge applied to the final bill.  PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING!!

Ballypines does have bedding available, however there will be a charge of $2/day.  


Take home a CLEAN DOG!

Although we guarantee that your dog will not go home dirty, we do offer a shampoo and brushing for your dog.

SHAMPOO and BRUSHING…$12.00/dog, extra charges can apply for thicker coats!

Drop-off and Pick-up Policy

Our drop-off and pick-up times are very specific in order to provide your dog with the most optimal time and safe playing situation!
Please remember there is ALWAYS a charge for the day of drop-off.  The earlier you drop your dog off, the more well adapted he will be by bedtime.

Food

Your dog will be fed twice per day unless otherwise specified. We ask that you bring your dog’s food from home since we don’t want to stress him with a change in diet. Please remember to label all food with your pooch’s name, feeding directions, and the measuring cup you use at home.  Please put each meal in a baggie-this ensures your dog is receiving the proper amount of food.  Always pack a couple of extra meals-you never know when your trip may have an unexpected delay in return!  If you think your dog may have trouble eating initially, please bring some moist food to make his meal extra enticing… a hungry dog is a not a happy dog!!

Medications

The first medication will be administered free-of-charge, unless given more than twice per day. If more medication is required, there will be a $1 per extra-dose fee.

We shall administer your dog’s medications as instructed by your veterinarian. Please have all medications labelled with your pet’s name, dosage, and frequency.
