Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is dog boarding?
    Dog boarding is housing your dog at a facility outside of your home while you are away from your home for any period of time. K9 Hideaway specializes in boarding for your dog, to ensure they are pampered while in our care.
  • What is the difference between luxury boarding and traditional kennels?
    Traditional Boarding Kennels Traditional boarding kennels are the most common type of dog boarding services. They are facilities that provide a temporary home for dogs while their owners are away. These kennels typically provide food, water, and a place to sleep for the dogs. The dogs are usually housed in individual runs or cages, which may be indoor or outdoor. The kennel staff will care for the dogs' basic needs, such as feeding, watering, and exercise. Some kennels may also offer additional services, such as grooming or training. Luxury Boarding Facilities Luxury boarding facilities are similar to traditional kennels but offer more upscale amenities. These facilities may offer larger runs or suites with comfortable bedding, TVs, and even webcams so owners can check in on their pets. They may also offer additional services such as mass

Your dog's well-being is our top priority, which is why we give your dogs breaks at night just as if they were home with you.
  • My dog doesn’t do well with other dogs, can you still board him/her?
    Yes, we can! At K9 Hideaway, we offer individualized boarding options for dogs that may not do well with other dogs. That said, we do require that all dogs are people-friendly and able to interact well with our staff. Our team will work closely with you to understand your dog's unique needs, preferences, and behaviors to ensure that they have a comfortable and stress-free stay with us.
  • What if my dog runs out of food?
    K9 Hideaway has got you covered! We understand that things can happen, and sometimes your furry friend might run out of food while staying with us. Don't worry! We have an in-house food option available for your dog called Pet Wants. Pet Wants’ specially-crafted, private-label pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl, all made in the USA. The company only sources the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies.

    We strongly recommend not having visits. At K9 Hideaway, we prioritize the peace of mind and well-being of our furry guests.

  • Can I call while I’m away to check how my dog is doing?
    Yes, we also provide daily report cards and post frequently on social media, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, TikTok, and Youtube.
  • Can my dogs board together?
    Yes, dogs from the same family can board together. We reserve the right to upgrade the dog(s) to a larger accommodation and/or separate them into separate accommodations if we feel it is in the best interest of the dog(s)’s health and safety. K9 Hideaway cannot be held responsible for any disagreements between dogs while sharing an accommodation.
  • What if my dog doesn't have a Bordetella shot, can we still bring them?
    At K9 Hideaway and Craigmyle K9 Training, we strictly enforce the Bordatella vaccine requirement for all dogs who attend our training and boarding facilities. The Bordatella vaccine is used to prevent against kennel cough, which is a highly contagious respiratory infection that can spread quickly among dogs in close quarters. This vaccine is required to maintain a safe and sanitary environment for all dogs in our care. We highly recommend speaking with your veterinarian about this vaccine and ensuring that your dog is up-to-date on all necessary vaccinations before attending any boarding, daycare and training classes.
  • We might get back from vacation a day or two early, so would it be a problem if we picked our dog up early?
    Yes, you can. At K9 Hideaway, we understand the importance of your time and commitments, so we do our best to accommodate your needs. We just ask that you let us know ahead of time that you’ll be coming early, so we can prepare your dog appropriately for an early departure and have everything ready for you when you arrive without a wait time!

Only the lobby is closed on specified holidays for pick up and drop off. In fact, holidays are some of the busiest times of the year for us, as many pet owners travel and need a safe and reliable place for their dogs to stay. Please contact us for any additional Holiday questions or concerns. We are committed to providing the highest quality care for each of our canine clients, year-round.
  • Do you have webcams in the room so I can watch my dog while I'm gone?

    Dogs can be boarded at any K9 Hideaway for as long as necessary! We do offer special pricing options for long- term boarding. Typical stays range from 4 to 14 days in length.
  • Do dogs need to be neutered/spayed to be boarded?
    We do not require dogs to be altered while boarding with us, however, for them to participate in doggie daycare, they must be altered by 10 months old. This is subject to change depending on the dog and is up to the discretion of the staff to determine if it is safe for the dog to remain in daycare until 10 months.

  • What will you do with my dog in case of an emergency?
    If the dog requires non-emergency veterinary care during the training period, the trainer will make a reasonable attempt to contact the owner so the owner can obtain veterinary care for the dog. If the owner cannot be reached or is unable to tend to the dog’s need for veterinary care, or in the case of an emergency, the trainer will arrange on behalf of the owner for veterinary care to which the owner consents as set forth below. All veterinary fees are the responsibility of the owner. If convenient, the trainer will take the dog to the dog’s regular veterinarian, but the trainer reserves the right to take the dog to a veterinarian selected by the trainer, using reasonable care in the selection of a veterinarian. Craigmyle K9 Training LLC / K9 Hideaway will take all reasonable and necessary precautions during the training process to avoid injury. However, sometimes an illness or condition that was not diagnosed or discovered previously may present during the training period. When this happens, we need to be able to get the emergency care needed.

After that, the dog can return with new dates to Craigmyle K9 Training LLC. / K9 Hideaway. Craigmyle K9 Training LLC./ K9 Hideaway may agree to have the dog recover here, and will discuss with the owner if that occurs. 4) The owner must arrange all other veterinary care, when possible. The trainer’s time and transportation expenses must also be reimbursed.

  • How often will I be updated?
    We update you daily with our report cards which includes photos of your pup having a fun and relaxing time.
  • Is daycare good for dogs?
    Yes! Doggy daycare is good for most dogs. Bringing your dog to daycare has its benefits, including those that improve your dog’s quality of life: Plenty of mental stimulation and physical activity: Not only does this tire your pup out, but it can also reduce unwanted behaviors like constant barking. An outlet to expend excess energy, exercise, and remain active: Your dog will be able to participate in daily exercise through group activities. Participants play in a cage-free environment while enjoying the freedom to stretch their legs. Eases separation anxiety: By giving your pup time away from you in a safe, fun, and stimulating environment, dog daycare gives your pup great practice for alone time. Our staff will give your dog the attention and care they need to help make their stay as low-stress as possible. The chance to socialize with other dogs of a similar size and temperament: Dogs are social animals, and they benefit from spending time with other dogs! Each dog is evaluated to ensure appropriate and comfortable play with the other dogs, and maintain a completely safe and healthy environment. If your dog doesn’t do well with other dogs, they can still benefit from a dog daycare—group play will be replaced with one-on-one playtime with our staff. Keep in mind, however, that if your dog is reactive (common among dogs who were rescued from abusive owners), dog daycare may not be the best idea. Please let us know if your dog struggles with aggression, and we can discuss whether behavioral training is recommended before checking in.
  • How often should my dog go to dog daycare?
    Daycare is recommended as often as possible! Dogs are highly adaptable and enjoy a routine that is predictable. Most commonly dogs will come between 2-4 times per week, but we very often see dogs upwards of 5 times a week! The exercise is wonderful to keep them entertained and socialized, and they will make “friends” they can consistently see and interact with at daycare. We love to see your dogs as often as we can and establish our own relationships with them, in turn making them much more comfortable while in our care.
  • How do I know if my dog likes dog daycare?
    At K9 Hideaway, we understand that you may feel hesitant about leaving your furry loved one with us for the first time. However, there are a few signs that can indicate whether your dog is enjoying their time at daycare: - Your dog is excited to go to daycare and jumps out of the car or pulls to get inside. - Your dog greets the staff and other dogs with enthusiasm and a wagging tail. - Your dog is relaxed and content while playing with toys and interacting with other dogs. - Your dog eats their food and drinks water while at daycare. - Your dog comes home tired and happy, ready to cuddle with you. If your dog shows any signs of distress, fear, or aggression while at daycare, our trained staff will be able to intervene and assess the situation. We believe in creating a safe and fun environment for all dogs, and we prioritize their well-being above all else. If you have any concerns or questions about your dog's behavior at daycare, please do not hesitate to speak with our staff, who will be more than happy to address your concerns.
  • Do you separate dogs by size in dog daycare?
    Yes, dogs that are 30 pounds and over are evaluated for our large playgroup. Dogs that are 29 pounds and under are evaluated for our small daycare playgroup.
  • What vaccines do dogs need to be boarded and to participate in daycare?
    We require the following immunization: * Rabies * Bordetella * DHLPP (this is a five-way vaccine that includes viral diseases canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza and bacterial infection leptospirosis). Find out more about the required vaccines here.
  • Fleas/Ticks
    We do not have fleas or ticks at K9 Hideaway but this does not mean they could never show up on the property. Your dog must always come to our pet care facility free of fleas and ticks. They also must be on flea and tick prevention medication.
  • Nose Rubbing
    A dogs world is of odor and at K9 Hideaway we have many odors with the dogs that stay with us. Some dogs can become curious at all the different sights and smells at a Pet Care Facility. Some dogs may rub their noses at the bottom of the door of their accommodation in an attempt to “smell” what’s going on. If the dog’s nose rubbing is persistent, it may cause a minor cut, scrape or rawness.

    We update you daily with our report cards which includes photos of your pup having a fun and relaxing time.
  • Will your training fix my dog?
    At Craigmyle K9 Training, we apply the knowledge and skills we've acquired over the past decade to mold and adjust your dog's behaviors. Similar to humans, dogs required ongoing training; without it, they can become lax and start to forget what they've learned.

  • What tools do you use to train my dog?
    We use a diverse array of tools for training your dogs, including flat collars, fur savers, zip chains, and training collars. We believe that no single tool can address every dog's problems, so we utilize a wide range of tools to positively and effectively communicate with your dog.
  • I do not have time for private lessons or to train my dog on my own. Can you help me?
    Certainly! We provide a range of training options, from a 1 day Pawsitive Day Training and Daycare (10 hours of training and daycare), to 1 week board and train, and a 2 week board and train. If more time is required, we also offer a four week board and train to comprehensively address all of your dog's behaviors. We encourage you to attend as much of the training as you desire during the board and train time. We will keep in contact with you and send report cards daily through our app.
  • Can you fix just one behavioral issue with my dog?
    The short answer is Yes! To fix a behavior in a dog we must start off with the basics, obedience. During the process of basic obedience you will see a change in your dog that may fix the behavioral issue. We will work together to address the issues and tailor our training to your desire and needs.
