Bathing Services

SFAH does offer limited bathing services. Most of our bathing is for allergies/dermatology concerns/issues. Any breed that is double coated or has lots of matting, will not be accepted for bathing services.

Baths are complimentary after 3 nights boarding as we want dogs to go home fresh. Double coated breeds or excessive shedding that require blow out time will be charged appropriately ranging from $5.00 (take 5 minutes) up to $65.00 (takes 65 minutes). This is a time consuming process, but well worth it to properly blow out the coat/undercoat of your dog.

**If you would like a estimate prior to bathing service, please ask

**If you do not want this added fee please decline bathing services.

**If your dog is too fearful or too new of experience, we reserve the right to not bathe. If your dog is too fearful or painful for nail trims, this too will not be done.

**If your dogs are too fearful to have bath/blow out/nails trimmed/ears cleaned please talk with us on reversal sedation to get them through this process reducing FAS/FEAR ANXIETY STRESS, pain, and reduction of triggers.

We Structure Each Day to Keep Your Dog Engaged & Calm

Your pet is provided with a structured day, with plenty of potty time, interaction with treats or kong time, and clean/fresh bedding. We walk your dog 3-4 times a day so they get a good stretch. They also get a lot of mental stimulation with feeding/treat devices, stuffed kong, CET chews and Veggie Dents. Your pet gets rest, calm, and reduction of FAS/fear anxiety stress. Remember stressed dogs do not necessarily benefit from too much stimulation.

Bedding, Food & Dental Treats

All animals are fed twice a day, and provided with comfortable bedding to sleep on. Feel free to bring a t-shirt with owner odors and pheromones. If your pet has a favorite toy, pillow, or other play item, bring it along for them. We also recommend bringing your pet’s own food and/or treats. But do not worry, we feed the Royal Canin Intestinal HE diet and Low Fat. Also, Royal Canin Dental Diet and Wonder bars for treats. Spoiled with Cet Hextra chews and/or Veggie Dents for oral care!

Have Specific Concerns About Your Dog?

If you feel your dog has a specific concern or issue with boarding that we need to know, feel free to call and/or email to see how we would recommend handling your specific pet’s needs. Working together allows us to address all areas of stress coming into boarding and for stay. This includes other areas of stress/triggers/anxieties ie. weather, noises, fireworks…

Vaccination Requirements

We require that your pet is up to date on their vaccinations for the safety of the other animals here and have a fecal/intestinal worm check every 6 months. Call us if you have any questions about the required vaccinations. We also require that you drop off and pick up your pet during regular business hours.
