  1. Just because your dog is vaccinated for canine cough does not mean they might not still contract it. Canine cough has many strains and the vaccination only prevents against a few, just like the human flu shot.
  2. Remember, dogs are just like kids in school. They spread viruses to each other and can become ill when in close proximity to or co-mingling with other dogs.
  3. Again, just like kids in school, dogs can play rough. Your dog may come home from daycare or boarding with minimal scratches or marks. If any serious injury occurs we will notify you immediately. But just remember, dogs have nails and teeth and often use both in appropriate play manners, which can sometimes cause injury.
  4. Dogs boarding in a Luxury Suite can bring any bedding/toys from home they wish.
  5. Dogs boarding in regular boarding cannot bring bedding/toys from home as we cannot guarantee the items will come home intact
    a. Just because your dog doesn’t chew up his bedding at home doesn’t mean he might not chew it up here. We cannot guarantee the safe and intact return of your personal items. If you dog is chewing on a bed or blanket it will be removed from their kennel as this is a choking and blockage/death hazard
    b. We offer add-on toys and treats that are not a choking hazard for your dog at a low cost.
    c. ALL dogs staying at The Club are provided with an orthopedic Kuranda bed to sleep on at night.
  6. All boarding dogs must bring enough food for their stay bagged in individual baggies per meal, plus a couple extra in case of emergency.

A Few Things To Note When You Go Home

  • Your dog is going to have an AWESOME time staying at The Club! We have so much fun with all the dogs and most get to participate in daycare as long as they’re social. Boarding dogs that pass the temperament evaluation get a minimum of 2-4 hours of daycare time per day.
  • Sometimes your dog is having so much fun they will not eat or drink as much as normal. So it’s to be expected that they may be hungry and thirsty when arriving home. All dogs are supplied with, or have access to water at all times and are offered all meals supplied by the parents.
  • While staying at The Club, your dog may not eat all or any of their food. We will apply a canned food appetite enhancer for $3/meal and do everything we can to entice your dog to eat, but we can’t force them to eat, so they may come home hungrier than usual.
  • Your dog will be getting more activity than they’re used to while staying at The Club. This means they may burn more calories than what they’re taking in. So over a boarding stay your dog may lose a little weight or come home hungrier than normal. Feel free to increase their food intake while boarding with us or when arriving back home.
  • Boarding can be a stressful situation for a dog. Your dog may come home and vomit or have diarrhea. This does not mean they’re necessarily “sick.” It’s just a reaction to the stress (good stress and excitement) of being away from home and all the extra adrenaline and endorphins that have been going through their system while playing in daycare and having fun with their friends! If vomiting or diarrhea persists, please take your dog to the vet. Sometimes there may be a little blood in your dog’s stool if they have diarrhea. This is NOT an emergency. It’s called colitis and is caused by stress bacteria in the gut. It will most times clear up on its own. If your dog does have diarrhea when arriving home, we recommend a tablespoon or two of pure pumpkin puree on their food or Firm Up! to stop the diarrhea. You can also call your veterinarian for the appropriate dosage of Imodium or for a prescription of Metronidazole. If bloody diarrhea persists, please take your dog to the vet for a check up to get their gut flora back to normal levels.
  • Just like kids in school, dogs can play rough with one another in a suitable play manner. Your dog may come home with scratches or nicks from the teeth and nails of other dogs occurring during appropriate play. We monitor the dogs playing 100% of the time, so we are always maintaining appropriate play.
  • Please make sure to offer your dog plenty of water when they get home. Sometimes they’re having so much fun playing that they will forget to drink their daily intake of water and may be thirstier than normal when arriving home. This can cause some dehydration in your dog. We do monitor boarding dogs water intake and will notify you if your dog becomes dehydrated.
  • It is common for dogs to be overly tired or somewhat lethargic when arriving home, it just means they were having a blast playing with all their friends while at The Club and need to catch up on some sleep.
  • Your dog may get a little dirty or smelly while having fun playing with all his friends. We recommend that you schedule a bath before your dog goes home. If you don’t, please note your dog may be a little dirty or smelly from playing with all his friends.
  • Don’t forget, your dog is going to have an awesome time staying at Canine Country Club! They’ll make all kinds of new friends and get to party and play with our amazing, professionally trained staff!

Further, if any sort of communicable illness is present at Canine Country Club, we will do our best to promptly notify clients of any issue via blast email.

Should a dog be observed to have fleas or ticks while attending daycare, a treatment will be applied at market value plus a $15 application fee. 6. Please remember flea/tick preventative is required YEAR ROUND for dogs attending The Club. I understand that the cost of veterinary treatment will be my responsibility no matter how the injury or illness occurred 7. If a dog dies at the facility, The Club has the right to require a necropsy (dog autopsy) at The Club’s expense. 8. I agree and understand that any problems that develop with my dog(s) will be treated as deemed necessary by The Club, in their sole discretion, and that I assume full responsibility for any and all expenses involved.

Canine Country Club (The Club) Rules & Regulations (Please read thoroughly)

To ensure the health and safety of all dogs, dog parents, visitors and employees at our facility, Canine Country Club Management asks that everyone comply with, and be aware of, the following facility rules:

  1. Leashes: Dogs must be ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES while on The Club property. THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR OWN DOG! NOT EVERY DOG THAT ATTENDS The Club IS HERE FOR DAYCARE AND FRIENDLY WITH OTHER DOGS.
  2. Vaccination Requirements: All dogs that enter the The Club facility must be current on Bordetella, Distemper and Rabies (Rabies is now required by law to be administered at 12 weeks). Please note, Bordetella is an OPTIONAL vaccine given by your vet, please make sure you’ve requested this and that your dog is current on it.
  3. Flea/Tick Preventative: Your dog must also be current on a monthly flea and tick preventative. If we find fleas or ticks on your dog, we will make an attempt to call and notify you, but either way we will treat them immediately and you will be charged for a bath at the regular price for your dog’s weight and flea treatment surcharge of $15 at pickup, no exceptions.
  4. Health:
    a. Please do not bring your dog to The Club when they are sick.
    b. If your dog is acting at all “off” please keep him or her home.
    c. Dogs are most contagious with communicable diseases and shed the virus for 5-10 days prior to showing any symptoms.
    d. If your dog is showing any of the following symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, runny nose, goopy eyes, coughing or hacking (even once or twice, dogs don’t cough) please do not bring them to The Club.
    e. Any dog that arrives at The Club that we suspect may be sick will be isolated and sent home.
    f. If your dog has been sick, please do not bring them back to The Club until they have been SYMPTOM FREE for more than 5 days.
  5. Age and Sex: The Club accepts puppies over 8 weeks once they’ve had two (2) rounds of puppy vaccinations for Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella and Rabies by 12 weeks of age (New law as of 2020). To participate in daycare, any dog over 6 months old must be spayed or neutered. Intact dogs can still attend The Club for boarding, grooming, training or day boarding (similar to daycare, but with 30 minutes of private play time with a staff member and potty breaks). Females in heat will not be allowed to attend ANY services at The Club. If your dog is boarding and comes into heat, we will contact your emergency contact to pick up your dog.
  6. Food: When boarding, please bring enough food for your dog’s stay. We require that you individually bag the food in a ziplock bag for each meal and provide 1 or 2 extra meals in case of an emergency. If you prefer we feed your dog our house food, you will get a choice between “regular, grain-included” for $2.50/meal up to 4 cups/day, or “premium, grain-free” for $3.50/meal up to 4 cups/day. Food that has been offered to your dog but not eaten will not be returned to you for sanitary reasons.
  7. Belongings: Dogs staying in The Club’s Luxury Suites can bring beds, toys or any belongings that are not a choking hazard for their stay (luxury suites have solid walls). We ask that dogs staying in Premium Boarding not bring any of their own belongings, because we cannot guarantee the safe and intact return of these items. All dogs are provided Orthopedic Kuranda beds (the best on the market) or other bedding to sleep on.
  8. Communication – current phone number, email, and vet contact information REQUIRED
    a. The Club requires all current customers to have an updated and accurate phone number on file. The Club will contact you immediately if your dog is sick or injured while in our care. We must have a phone number at which to reach you, or an emergency contact who can make decisions on your behalf about your dog’s care.
    b. The Club requires all current customers to have an updated and accurate email address on file. Blast email is our ONLY means of communication if we have a situation where we need to close the facility (weather related, contamination of a contagious virus, unexpected or scheduled maintenance, etc.)
    c. We MUST have your current vet’s clinic name and phone number on file. This would be the vet that
    gave your dog their last round of vaccinations. If you change vets, please notify us.
  9. What to expect:
    a. Daycare:
    i. Temperament Evaluation: At The Club we do the daycare temperament evaluation on the dog’s first day of daycare. We ask that on your first day you arrive between 7-7:30am for your dog to have his/her temperament test. If your dog arrives after 7:30, they will be temperament tested over the lunch hour. Owners do not stay for the test. If your dog is determined to not be suitable for group play at The Club, they will be placed into day boarding and get individual play time with a staff member along with potty breaks for the day.
    ii. If your dog’s nails are too long and pose a danger to the other dogs in daycare, your dog will have to receive a nail trim before being allowed back in daycare. We will happily trim your dog’s nails for you at a charge of $14+tax.
    iv. Expect your dog to be very tired after daycare. Your dog doesn’t typically play for this many hours every day. All dogs have access to water all day, but sometimes they’re so busy playing they forget to drink enough, so they may be extra thirsty coming home from daycare. Please offer them water, but don’t let them gorge and get sick.
    v. Just like kids in school, dogs can sometimes play rough with their friends and cause minor scratches, scrapes, nicks or cuts on other dogs while playing in a NON-aggressive manner. Our daycare attendants are extensively trained in aggression, body language and behavior and separate dogs immediately when there’s any sign of play turning into a fight. While it is a rare occurrence, it is also our policy to call parents immediately if any injury happens that could need medical attention to let you make the decision how to proceed.
    vi. The Club reserves the right AT ANY TIME to remove a dog from daycare and make them solo potty and play time only. Daycare is NOT guaranteed with boarding, it is provided only to dogs that pass the temperament test. Any dog showing signs of aggression towards humans or other dogs will be removed from daycare immediately and made solo.
    b. Holidays:
    i. Daycare: The Club has daycare restrictions surrounding holidays. Before and after most major holidays, and during the holiday, including Spring Break, we only take a very limited number of daycare dogs. Sometimes this means daycare will be closed and only dogs with Monthly
    Unlimited packages can attend.
    ii. Boarding: There is a 3 (three) night minimum stay required for boarding over Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break. Your dog doesn’t have to stay 3 nights, but you will be billed for 3 nights.
    c. Boarding:
    i. Boarding is charged in 24 hour time periods and includes 2-4 hours of daycare time per day for dogs who pass and maintain the temperament testing; or, approximately 30 minutes of private play time with a staff member, plus additional potty breaks, for dogs who cannot attend daycare. If your dog stays later than their drop off time on the day of pick up, there is an additional half day boarding charge of $20.
    ii. Boarding Billing:
    1. For example: If you drop one dog off for Boarding on Saturday at 8:30am, and you pick your dog up on Sunday morning prior to 8:30am you will be charged for a one night stay at listed value. If you drop your dog off Saturday at 8:30am and pick up Sunday at any time after 8:30am you will be charged the boarding price plus a half day boarding price
    at listed value.
    iii. All dogs who pass their temperament evaluation and are social attend daycare with the daycare dogs for a minimum of 2-4 hours per day, extra play time may be purchased
    iv. Dogs that are not social get private play and potty time, indoors and out, multiple times per day
    with a staff member
    v. Canine Country Club reserves the right to remove any dog from daycare and move them to private play time for any reason we deem necessary
    a. Since all dogs get a lot of play time, it is very common for them to come home
    and be very tired for 1-3 days. They may not eat as much as normal for a couple
    days as their body readjusts to their normal schedule
    b. It is also common that your dog could have a loose stool when they come home.
    The increase in play and exercise, which also causes increases in adrenaline and endorphins, combined with the excitement of coming home can cause diarrhea. This is easily cured by adding a tablespoon of canned pumpkin to their food, Firm Up, or asking your veterinarian for the appropriate dosage of Imodium or metronidazole.
    viii. Holidays
    1. A minimum 3 night stay is required for the following holidays (your dog does not have to
    stay 3 nights, but you will be charged for 3 nights):
    a. Thanksgiving
    b. Christmas
    c. Spring Break
    2. The Club is closed for business on the following holidays – but we are still at The Club caring for
    the dogs staying with us:
    a. 4th of July, Independence Day
    b. Thanksgiving Day
    c. Christmas Day
    3. Limited Hours: Days when The Club is open for only boarding drop-off and pick-up
    a. Day after Thanksgiving
    b. Day before or after Christmas (depends on the year)
    c. New Year’s Eve (depends on the year)
    d. New Year’s Day
    e. Memorial Day
    f. Day before or after July 4th (depends on the year)
    g. Labor Day
    ix. Peak Season Pricing
    1. Due to the increased number of staff required during peak season times, The Club will be
    charging peak season pricing
    2. Peak Season Pricing will be $3 per night per dog
    3. Peak seasons are:
    a. A week before Thanksgiving to a week after Thanksgiving
    b. A week before Christmas to a week after New Years
    c. A week before WDM school district Spring Break to a week after
    d. Summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day

I have read, understand and agree to comply with Canine Country Club’s Rules and Regulations:

Canine Cough Liability:

Canine Cough is a common and highly contagious respiratory virus, usually called Tracheobronchitis. Unfortunately, it is impossible to entirely safeguard against Canine Cough. Even after being vaccinated with Bordetella, dogs may still contract canine cough (although usually a less severe form than they would have otherwise and the recover more quickly). The virus can incubate for up to two weeks, meaning that dogs who appear perfectly healthy during their stay may be carrying one of the viruses that cause a problem and spreading it to other dogs without our knowledge. Dog’s are most contagious 5-10 days before showing any symptoms, making the virus very hard to contain. The vaccination cannot protect your dog from all of the illnesses that contribute to canine cough, but we require all dogs to be vaccinated against the most common strains.

Runny nose, watery eyes, and a classic “hacking cough” are all the hallmarks of kennel cough. The cough can sometimes cause the dog to retch up a foamy phlegm. It has also been described as “something stuck in my dog’s throat,” or “like a cat trying to hack up a hairball.” It is comparable to a chest cold in a human. A dog with canine cough will usually clear the infection on its own in one to three weeks…similar to the symptoms of a human cold. Canine cough is common and can spread all year round.

Canine cough is highly contagious. It can travel through the air or by direct contact. This is why we, at Canine Country Club, are highly vigilant against the virus. We require all dogs to be vaccinated against it and we use kennel disinfectants that kill the viruses on surfaces. We also have a state-of-the-art HVAC system that recirculates all of the air in the entire facility every 10-20 minutes, decreasing the number of airborne pathogens.

Important points:

  • Like kids at school or daycare, dogs pass around canine cough like the common cold or flu
  • Canine cough has an incubation period of between 2-14 days. This means that even a healthy looking dog today could be spreading the virus to other dogs and not actually come down with it themselves for a week.
  • Dogs can get canine cough even if they’ve been vaccinated for it 
  • Canine cough is usually self-limiting but can sometimes be severe enough to warrant medications such as antibiotics to prevent the secondary infection of pneumonia in rare occasions 

If your pet develops canine cough, notify your vet if: 

  • Your dog’s cough worsens or doesn’t improve over one to two weeks 
  • Your dog becomes lethargic or stops eating 
  • Your dog develops nasal discharge, especially if it’s colored 
  • Your dog develops a fever over 102.5 (normal body temperature for a dog is 101.0 to 102.5 degrees) 

I am aware that my dog may come into contact with a strain of Tracheobronchitis (Caninel Cough) virus while in close proximity with other dogs, while visiting Canine Country Club. I am also aware that, even though my dog has been vaccinated against the virus, that is no guarantee they will not contract a strain of the disease. As such, I release Canine

Board & Train

Board & Train is different from regular boarding. Board & Train is boarding and training ONLY. Dogs here for Board & Train do not participate in daycare as a requirement of their training program. Your dog will receive individual potty and play time with a staff member and receive at least 6 potty breaks per day in addition to the time they spend training.

Please call or email our Training Partner Tonja Osborn with any questions about Board & Train or any other training. 515-321-3634 or [email protected]

Dog Bite Waiver

I understand that dogs are inherently dangerous animals that can fight and bite. Should my dog bite another dog while attending Canine Country Club, and Canine Country Club determines my dog to be the sole aggressor, I will be responsible for paying all vet bills associated with the injury sustained to the other dog.

Should my dog get in a fight where there are injuries to both dogs and my dog is not the sole aggressor, I agree to pay for my dog’s vet bills in full and will not hold Canine Country Club responsible for any part of my dog’s medical care. If my dog is not the aggressor and the aggressor dogs parents refuse to pay vet bills, I agree to be fully financially responsible for my dogs vet care.

I also understand and agree that if my dog bites a Canine Country Club employee, volunteer, customer, independent contractor or any other human in the building that ALL medical bills associated with the bite will be my responsibility to pay. I understand that my dog will not be released back into my custody until all veterinary or medical bills have been paid in full. Should Canine Country Club not know the amount of the veterinary or medical bills at the time I pick my dog up, I agree to leave a valid credit card number on file with Canine Country Club and understand that my credit card will be billed for the amount in full. The signature on this form will be proof that I have read and understand this agreement. I agree that my signature on this form will act as a credit card signature should my credit card have to be billed after the fact. I understand that follow up medical treatment may be needed in the event of a severe bite and will I agree to pay all current and future bills associated with the injury.

Once again, I agree to pay for all veterinary or medical bills in full should my dog bite another dog or a human being while attending Canine Country Club. Canine Country Club agrees to provide the owner with documentation of all veterinary or medical bills to submit for an insurance claim, should the owner choose to do so under their personal homeowner’s insurance.
