What vaccinations do you require?
· Rabies Vaccine, 1-3 years depending on age and vaccine.
· Distemper/Parvo Combination Vaccine, 1-3 years depending on age and vaccine.
· Bordetella Vaccine (Canine Cough, aka Kennel Cough) within the last 6-12 months depending on the vaccine.
All requirements must be met before pets can be boarded. For maximum protection of your dog, Bailey's K9s recommends vaccinations be administered two (2) weeks prior to boarding.
What dog breeds do you allow? What about Intact dogs?
Bailey's K9s takes all dog breeds! From little dogs all the way up to the giant breeds; everyone is welcome. If your dog is intact (Not Spayed or Neutered) we do not require you to alter your dog for any of our services.
What do I need to bring for Boarding or Daycare?
If your dog is staying with us overnight, we recommend bringing enough food for the stay, vaccination records and any medications. It's highly appreciated when meals are pre-portioned especially when meds are given every day. We can provide food for your dog at an extra charge if needed but I do recommend food from home as it helps stop any digestive upset.
If you're coming to daycare the only thing you need is your up-to-date vaccinations and your dog! If your dog eats lunch you can let me know at drop off. No need to give us your leashes, harnesses, or collars as we have leashes and will deliver your dog to your car. When it’s rainy or muddy I recommend bringing a towel or crate for your car as it's highly likely your pup is going to get muddy with their friends.
What training methods do you use?
I'm a Balanced dog trainer which means I use a balance of both positive reinforcement like food, affection, toys as well as correcting for unwanted behaviors like mouthing, barking and/or barrier aggression. The methods I use varies as each dog is different and tailoring the training plan to the needs of each dog is essential to your dog’s success.
Are you certified?
Yes! I went to Starmark Academy located in Hutto, Texas to get certified as a Professional Dog Trainer and Behavioral Specialist. As soon as I was able drive at the age of 16, I jumped into working with dogs. I’ve worked in boarding and daycare facilities as well as other training facilities before I felt equipped enough to start my own business and provide the best care and instruction to my clients and their dogs. Dog training is my passion and I'm always educating myself, learning and trying new things to help my clients be successful!
What do I need to bring for my dogs Board and Train drop off?
I recommend bringing enough food for their stay (two or three weeks) plus a couple of days just to be safe. You will also need to bring vaccination records and any medications your dog will need during his or her stay. Food and water bowls will be provided as well as beds and foam mats for sleeping and comfort.
Is there any follow up after a Board and Train package?
Yes, there is. Both Board and Train options come with a free follow up lesson to be used within the month of being picked up so that I can make sure everything is going smoothly. I let my clients contact me as to when they want their follow up lesson done so that it works best within their schedule.
