Drop Off and Pick up Hours: Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (we are closed 12-2), Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Sunday are 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
For your pup's safety, we request that dogs are leashed at all times while entering and exiting this building. We strongly discourage the use of retractable leashes; however, if you use one for your pet, please ensure that leash is restricted to a maximum 5 feet. It's important to remember, just because your dog may be social, other's may not appreciate the butt sniff!
While everyone loves the smells of homes, we highly discourage bringing personal bedding. The reasons are simple:
Paradise Paws recommends that no bones be brought to camp unless you are 100 percent certain if kenneling multiple dogs in one kennel, that they will not fight over that bone or toy. While we will do our best to oversee each guest, arguments occur between siblings/friends over toys and bones. If you have reserved a single-dog kennel space, we will gladly accept ones and toys, but they will need to stay in your pups personal lounge at all times.
Please ensure you provide enough food for your pup and a bit extra in the event of an emergency. While we offer Diamond Naturals All Life Stages dry kibble, it is hard on a dog's digestive track to have a change in diet. No one wants to deal with an upset tummy! For an additional fee, if your pup should run out of food, staff can purchase an additional bag if feasible. Please make sure all food is labeled!
Your pups safety is our number one concern. While there are certain viruses that are must like a cold to humans, other dog-to-dog illness can be prevented. That is we require your pup to be current on rabies (that is state law) and vaccinated for distemper/Parvo-virus. Bordetella, while not 100 percent effective because of the different strains of kennel cough that are detected each year, is also required. We highly recommend your pup also be vaccinated for lepto and canine influenza.
All medication should be clearly labeled with the pup's name and include written instructions (either attached to medicine or entered into our Petexec portal). There are no additional fees for staff to administer.
Did you know, that heartworm preventative ALSO aids in the prevention of WORMS! Did you know that if your pup digests a flea (maybe because they caught a rabbit), those fleas actually result in your dog having tapeworm? We know, GROSS! Having your pup on year round heartworm medication such as Interceptor Plus or Sentinel Spectrum, actually prevents the five most common types of worms that naturally live in our environment. Unfortunately, the number of heartworm positive dogs is increasing at an alarming rate and why take any chances and those transmitters (Mosquitos) are darn close to always living 9-10 months out of the year! Heartworm medication is DIFFERENT than flea and tick prevention. We highly recommend nexgard, bravecto or effitix as your choice of flea/tick medication which we require at all times of the year. Unfortunately, fleas are growing resistant to other topical medications that have been on the market for many years. If you have any questions, please call us at 608-846-PAWS (7297).
Knowledge is power! Please make sure we know as much as possible about your love one so we can provide the best possible stay for them! We also understand how scary it can be to leave your family member behind. We encourage you to check in as much as possible to help you too!
