Payment: There is no deposit required, however we do ask that all balances be paid IN FULL upon departure. Invoices are calculated by the number of calendar days your pet stays with us. Days with an arrival AFTER noon and/or departure BEFORE noon will be considered half days with all other days totaling the daily rate.

Vaccines: Rabies, DHLP, and Bordetella are required to be current at time of arrival, and through the end of the reservation for ALL services. Vaccines that have been expired for over a month, or that have never been given, require a 2 week incubation period before your pet comes. (Vaccination does not provide instant protection.) We accept titer exemptions for DHLP (updated testing required annually) NO EXCEPTIONS. When providing proof of Rabies vaccination, we will need to see the Rabies Certificate that includes the name of the vaccine manufacturer, the date of administration, and the rabies tag number. This is a regular document provided by your veterinarian at the time of vaccination. For DHLP and Bordetella any document showing their next due date is sufficient.

Medication & Supplement Fee: $4/day - Please keep all medications separate from food and in their original packaging.

Unique Needs: We understand that some pets may require additional or more specific care to ensure their safety, along with the safety of our staff. Examples include but are not limited to: dogs who continually attempt, or are able to jump over the fences or out of their room, dogs who are determined to be “Red” status meaning blatantly aggressive towards staff and unsafe to handle directly, dogs who are determined to be “Yellow” meaning they are a bite risk and require more experienced handlers in order to safely handle them, or a dog who requires isolation. There will be an additional charge and/or modifications to the daily routine for these pet’s in order to best accommodate them in the safest manner.

Forgot Your Food or Didn't Send Enough? No problem! We can feed our house community food, Purina One, for a small fee of $2/meal.

Leashes Please! Please bring your pup on a leash with a properly fitted collar or harness. Flexi-leads are not recommended. It is also important to have an ID tag properly fitted to your pup's collar.

Love to Label: Please have all your belongings clearly labeled.

Out of State Guests: If you are traveling from outside Pennsylvania, you are required to have with you a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI). This is a document you get from your veterinarian. It needs to state specifically that your dog shows no signs or symptoms of infections or communicable disease; did not originate within an area under quarantine for rabies, and, as ascertained by reasonable investigation, has not been exposed to rabies within 100 days. We will need to see a copy of this document upon check in.

Licensing: We do not require licensing information for dogs in our care. However, PA law does require all dogs be licensed, and when we have our Bi-annual inspections, the Warden will check for licensing information. If your dog does not wear a current license on their collar, we suggest providing us with the license number and/or paper to keep on file to streamline the inspection process. If the data is not present, you will be contacted by the Warden and asked to provide it.

FAQ & Helpful Tips

In Case of Emergency: Whenever possible, we will contact the pet owner first. If we are unable to reach the owner, we will then contact the Emergency Contact on file. If a vet visit is required, we are able to transport the pet for a trip fee of $25/hour + $1 per mile. Pet parents are also welcome to arrange their own transportation, or have an emergency contact pick up their pet. In the event there is a time-sensitive situation, we will do whatever is in the best interest of the pet, including transportation to the closest vet or emergency office.

Holidays: We are staffed to care for your pets 365 days a year,
but do limit our business hours on several holidays each year.

Best time to Book:Summer is by far our busiest season. If you are planning to board your pet over the summer months, we recommend booking your stay before the 1 st of May, (earlier if you want the 3 rd week in June.). From May 1 st thru Labor Day we do not accept new client reservations unless reservations start after Labor Day.”

Client Portal: ccc.portal.gingrapp.com From here you can request reservations, view existing reservations, upload vaccines, update your information, pay a balance, purchase retail and much more! We encourage everyone to give it a try, this is a great way to ensure we have all the correct information on file.

Self-Serve Wash: Did you know we have a Self-Serve Bath Tub at The Windsor? No appointment is needed. The cost is just $5 when you bring your own Shampoo, $10 if you choose to purchase ours. The room is also equipped with towels and a variable speed dryer.

Grooming Appointments: We recommend scheduling a spa visit every 6-8 weeks. Going too long between appointments could lead to matting in long-haired breeds. This could add time and cost to your appointment and may require an extra short hair cut to fully remove excess matting. Please be aware our groomers schedules fill up quickly and we cannot always accommodate same week appointments. If you have specific instructions, feel free to send along photos to help our groomers get a visual of what you are looking for.

Preparing for an Overnight Stay: We provide each dog with a fleece blanket and food and water dishes. When packing your pet's food, we prefer it to be portioned by serving size in individual bags or containers. This ensures we are feeding the correct amount, and helps you determine how much food to send. It is always a good idea to send along an extra meal or two, but please avoid heavy bags or containers. A reusable shopping bag makes a great "suitcase" and (for most breeds) has enough room to hold a week's worth of food, a bag of treats, and a special toy.
