All inquiries are best sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lodging reservations and Dog Day scheduling are arranged through email after families have moved through the complete orientation process. A follow up to the orientation process provides each family with a final paper work packet which includes details on payments and our cancelation policy. All payments are made on line through our secure billing service and confirms a reservation. Because of the limited space and the consistent demand for Moon Dog Lodge’s exceptional dog care, we appreciate your understanding in committing to our payment and cancelation policies. In confirming one reservation another is excluded from this intimate service. Cancellations can preclude others from this unique care taking and affects Moon Dog Lodges ability to efficiently manage its clientele and employees.
Packing Your Pup’s Suitcase:
Families provide all their dog’s food. Time away from the family pack can cause emotions to stir up in dogs, just like humans and this can effect the digestion system. It is extremely helpful for dogs to stay consistent with their home diets to keep their tummies as balanced as possible. Please ALWAYS pack an extra 3-4 days of extra food, supplements, & medications as travel can often be unpredictable. Many of our families feed raw or home made diets, we are prepared with the proper storage to accomodate all feeding needs. Please note that Moon Dog does charge a $25 fee for a “food/vet run” if your dog runs out of their food, supplements, and or medications.
Please label all food containers with our dog’s name (includes can food, please label on the bottom of can)
If you have a certain procedure in prepping your dogs food along with certain am/pm medications/supplements to be added, please provide a typed (hand written is not always legible) note with am/pm instruction. This is extremely helpful in clarifying that all is given correctly.
Please provide the correct measuring cup for kibble, measuring spoons for supplements and medications. In addition can food lids are always greatly appreciated. Please label all items so we make sure it all returns home.
If you will be feeding a raw diet or homemade meals that have a great deal of prep involved please contact Inez via email to communicate your dogs meal prep needs. If you feed only kibble, for short visits please bring a small bag of food or pack in 2 large ziplock bags. Please do not pack small ziplock bags of dry/wet food per meal. Small plastic containers are storable and more environmentally kind.
If your dog will be at Moon Dog for an extended amount of time you are welcome to bring a new large bag of food or large plastic dog food container. We have space to store these items.
Please LABLE all bottles with your dog’s name and am and pm amounts and then place into a large zip lock bag with your dogs name on bag. Again, we appreciate when measuring spoons/cups are provided as needed.
DOG BED & OR CRATES
A crate or kennel …”Caves” as Moon Dog likes to refer to them are encouraged if your dog understands this space as a sanctuary at home or when they travel with you. Dogs who are familiar with a structure like this recognize it as a comfort zone and appreciate the ability to use their cave when if feels good to them. Because dogs come from den dwelling animals, if introduced to a crate in a healthy positive form early on in life they will often naturally seek it out to take a break. Its a kind of like an RV… a familiar zone to snuggle in and catch some good Zzzz’s. All crates are provided by families. Moon Dog will provide storage of crates for your convenance. Dog beds, blankets, and crates from home also offer important aromas and spaces that send reassuring comfort messages to dogs during times of adjustment of being away from the family. To a dog who’s nose is their number one tool, the scent of their family pack is an important one and powerful at helping to relieve stress. There is no need to wash bedding or crate as long as it is clean and presentable.
DOG FOOD BOWL
Please have name on bottom of dog bowl with permanent marker (preferably a travel bowl, not ceramic.) A food bowl that a dog is familiar with can also give a great deal of comfort to a dog encouraging them to relax and eat regularly.
The above preparation is of great help in keeping your dog(s) on a healthy track with their meals, helping us stay organized and allowing us to function with efficiency. Thank you for the time and energy!
