First Time Boarding and Training Assessments

Before first-time boarding or board-and-train: a prepaid full day assessment must be scheduled for your dog, to be sure he or she is comfortable and compatible here at Dairydell. This is required before you are able to book any future live-in services. Assessments require extra staffing hours to ensure that your fur-baby is a comfortable match at our facility. The fee for assessment is $30 (paid at the time of booking) and is non-refundable if canceled or a “No Show”, etc. We have two styles of boarding. See below for further details on the two styles of accommodations.

NOTE: Any dogs that have shown any kind of human aggression or objection to handling are not compatible with our services. Contact our office 707-762-6111 to see if we can help you in a different way.

You are not able to make or confirm any dates for Boarding/Board & Train until this assessment is complete and your dog is comfortable in one of our boarding accommodations. Once you complete the registration form below, check your email for next steps.

Boarding environments are not like home. Just like at a dog park, your pet’s risk for being exposed to transmissible diseases are higher when they are in well populated areas of other canines. To keep all animals safe/healthy and to provide the best care possible we require the following vaccines be up to date for all canine guests:

  • Rabies
  • Canine Influenza (If this is your first time getting this vaccine – Please PLAN AHEAD! This vaccine takes 2 appointments between 2-4 weeks apart before they are up to date)
  • DHPP
  • Bordetella.

Please note that Dairydell does not accept titers in lieu of vaccinations.

Click the following link for a Lifestyle based Vaccine Calculator from the American Animal Hospital Association to aid in your vaccine decisions:

NOTE: These vaccinations DO NOT protect your dog from all colds or illnesses. Please read our “About Boarding: The Downside of a Good Time.”

We recommend Leptospirosis vaccine as we are a country facility.

  • Please Read This Important Information About The Risks That Can Come With Boarding

    Your dog will have a blast at Dairydell – meeting new friends, experiencing new things, and learning all kinds of new stuff if he’s in training. All that fun and excitement, however, can come with a few downside risks which, by signing our releases, you agree to fully assume - including any and all medical expenses during or related to your dog's stay at Dairydell. Though injury and illness are rare, they are unavoidable risks in even the best of boarding environments.

    We Recommend Pet Insurance
    By placing your dog with us, you are accepting these and other risks as well as the financial responsibility for any emergency medical treatment that might become necessary during your dog’s stay. Emergencies are rare, but we highly recommend that you carry pet insurance, just in case.

  • If you do not have pet insurance, here are a couple of highly rated companies you can contact:

    SPOT Pet Insurance

    LEMONADE Pet Insurance

  • Your dog may experience one or more of the following:

    Tiredness: With everything so new and exciting, your dog won’t sleep as much as he does at home – especially during the day. By the time he comes home, your pooch might be pooped – sleepy and lazy for several days while he catches up on his zzzz’s. Do not be alarmed. After several days, his energy should be back to normal.

    Bumps, Bruises and Boo Boo’s: It’s a play yard out there, and dog play is a contact sport! Most dogs spend their days at Dairydell running, jumping and wrestling and – like on a school play yard – stuff can happen. Even under supervision and the best of circumstances, injuries can occur. Most will be minor, but occasionally some will be more significant – even requiring veterinary attention. Running in our huge, sand arenas can also dry and crack pads. In other words, bumps, nicks and boo-boos are not uncommon in an active boarding environment, but most are proof that your dog had a really great time!

    Eye Irritation: When city dogs come to stay with us, sometimes our farm air makes their eyes water! Our grasses, cows, horses, sheep and dust from dog-play on the sand – all contribute to occasional eye allergies. If you notice white-ish discharge in your dog’s eyes after coming home, just give us a call. We’ll tell you how to clear your pup up pronto!

    Life-Threatening Bloat or Torsion: The causes of life-threatening bloat (stomach filling with air) or torsion (twisted stomach) are not clearly understood, and they can happen anytime, anywhere – at home or away. Careful monitoring during playtime is the best way to intercept and address these rare but serious conditions. Your dog will be overseen by our staff between 7am and 9pm, but please note that dogs are not monitored overnight.

    GI Upset: Changes in environment, routine, diet, etc. can all cause an upset stomach in your dog, (IE: loose stool). GI upset does not go unnoticed here -- we monitor it carefully and address it quickly. If it happens, we administer Pepcid as a supplement, and adjust your dog's daily meals to aid in re-setting their system. When your dog returns home, you could also see loose stools, because of another change in their routine, environment and diet. Call us if this is the case and we will advise the easiest way to resolve.

    Viruses: COLDS HAPPEN. Like kids at a preschool, dogs share everything while boarding – including colds and assorted viruses. Luckily, there are vaccinations to help protect against the worst kinds of cold-causing bacteria, but your vaccines will NOT protect against the many viruses that also cause sniffles and coughs. For older dogs as well as the very young or those with other health conditions, risks from upper respiratory disease can be greater. At Dairydell, we require that ALL dogs staying with us be current in both bordetella and parainfluenza vaccinations, so that we can maintain the highest protection level and the lowest possible odds of a bordetella or parainfluenza incident. Most other dog colds and even some skin conditions, however, are caused by viruses with no known vaccines to prevent them. Our best preventive at Dairydell is keeping dogs clean, warm, rested and well-fed. If your dog does come down with a cold or skin condition, either while here or after coming home, odds are it’s minor and will quickly pass. If your dog is old, young or otherwise compromised, however, vet attention may be advised.
