Boarding Check-In Form

I’m dog boarding! What can we expect?

  • Devotion to your pet—to his or her health and happiness
  • Trained and qualified staff
  • Safe and secure facilities
  • Clean kennel units
  • Indoor, climate-controlled boarding
  • Healthy food and treats; your dog’s preferred diet is recommended
  • Regular walks and exercise
  • Vaccinations, flea & tick control, and intestinal parasite screening, if not up-to-date
  • A free bath for stays 7 nights or longer!

We are devoted to your dog’s overall health care. So dog boarding at Northeast Animal Hospital is like child care at your pediatrician’s clinic! We make every effort to provide individual attention to your pet, whether he or she boards with us for a day, a week, or more.

To make the check-in process as quick and easy as possible, please complete and submit our Boarding Check-In Form before your visit. If you have any questions, or would like to tour our facilities, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.

What should I know about dog boarding?

  • Multiple boarding areas allow us to separate canines of different sizes, which helps alleviate fear and stress
  • Meals consist of a high quality, scientifically formulated diet (Science Diet Sensitive Stomach), but it is recommended that you bring your dog’s own food since pets can experience gastrointestinal upset with sudden changes in diet
  • Current medication should be dispensed according to your veterinarian’s recommendation, so please bring your dog’s medication with you
  • Treatments, including vaccinations [Canine Influenza (H3N8 and H3N2), DA2PP, Bordetella (within 6 months), Intestinal Parasite Screening (within 6 months), Leptospirosis (L4), and Rabies], flea & tick control, and intestinal parasite screening, must be up-to-date; otherwise, these services will be provided upon arrival at additional cost
  • Bedding material is not used, unless we can determine that separation anxiety won’t cause destructive behavior (if so determined, we prefer to use our own bedding material to eliminate any risk of damage to your own)
  • Baths are always available, but if your dog boards with us for 7 nights or more, we will provide a bath for free (Mandatory baths will be discounted 25% for stays 3 to 6 nights in length)
  • Extra Care, which includes extra walks, extra feeding, or just extra attention, is available for an additional fee of $6.00

We appreciate your understanding of the policies we have implemented in order to provide the highest, healthiest level of care, and the most positive dog boarding experience. To that extent, we wish to provide the best health care for your dog beyond the boarding experience.
