Check-in Process

Our unique boarding experience allows dogs to socialize in a pack. Because dogs are allowed to play as a group, our staff will build a relationship with each dog so that they are put into the most compatible playgroup. 

  1. Online Enrollment: Create a profile through our online boarding software on the "Check-in Process" drop-down menu: New Owner Registration. If you have any questions, we are here to help you. Text or call us anytime at 831.663.3647.

  2. After making your online profile, text or email us a picture of your dog's vaccination records or have your vet email a copy to info@dogwoodranch.com. We will need current Rabies, Distemperand Bordetella vaccines.

  3. Last, we will need to schedule a temperament test for all new clients. You will need to text the business line to schedule this once your profile is complete. Temperament tests are scheduled as a half-day or a full-day of daycare.  

  4. As soon as your dog is evaluated, you will be able to make a reservation. We recommend making reservations as early as you can. We fill up on some weekends and holiday dates.

  5. All you need to bring is your dog's food.

    • We will provide

      • Beds

      • Blankets

      • Food Bowls

      • Food Scoops

      • Water Bowls

 

Please bring extra food if your dog is staying for overnight boarding. Due to increased activity, sometimes we will need to feed high-energy dogs more than their usual amount of food to keep their weight up.  If your dog runs out of food, there is a $3/meal charge for in-house food.

 

We do not recommend bringing your dog's blankets and belongings. Because of the nature of an open boarding facility, there is a chance that these items may be returned damaged or may be lost. 

When you arrive at Dogwood Ranch, dogs must be leashed when they exit your vehicle.  

 

Please ring the bell at the front black gate and a staff member will meet you in the lobby to check you in.

*Expect your dog(s) to be tired at the end of their stay. They play together throughout the day, every day. Most dogs sleep for 2-3 days after leaving.

 

**We are unable to accept new pitbull clients due to our new insurance policy. If you have a pit bull who has not boarded with us before and need to board your dog, oxtonkennels.com in Salinas will be happy to help!
