Frequently Asked Questions About
Four Paws Ranch Facilities and Amenities



*

What are your hours?

Monday - Friday: 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. (Summer Hours beginning May 26th, 2015)
4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

As a courtesy to our customers, we offer a 10 a.m. pickup on all major holidays.

We do everything here by appointment so that we may put our guests' needs first. If a customer were to arrive unscheduled, we may be in the yard with a play group and we would have to take all of the dogs back to their rooms and then tend to the customer. This is unfair to our guests, therefore, we make appointments so that we can give our guests' humans the same consideration we give our guests.

*
Do you have indoor or outdoor kennels? What size are they?


We have 14 runs that are indoor, heated and cooled and range in size
from 5' x 4' to 6.5' x 8.5'. The television is left on for our guests all of the time to provide an environment more like home.

Each run is separated by thick polyethylene panels so that there is not a chain link between runs. This provides a sense of security for even the tiniest or shyest guest.

*
May I bring personal food, beds, toys, etc?


We require owners to bring their own food in order to prevent digestive upset and/or diarrhea. Owners are encouraged to bring a bed and any toys or treats you feel comfortable leaving with your pet. We also recommend that you bring a beach towel for your pet, so that we may dry them off after their swim or if we get caught in the rain.

Please do not bring something your pet is not accustomed to as that may cause digestive upset.  Also, please be sure that anything left with your pet is safe for them to have while unattended.


*
How do I know my dog plays well?


We evaluate each dog for temperament and arrange play groups based on each individual dog's play style and size.



*

What do you do in play group?


Each play group's activities are tailored to that group's needs. For example: some pets enjoy the pools, some enjoy frisbee, others enjoy playing ball, etc.
We continually rotate activities so that all of the individual needs are met.

*
Do you board cats or other animals?

No, just dogs, they are our specialty.


*
Do you offer obedience/behavior training?


Basic obedience training is offered while boarding. Please call to discuss your pet's needs.


*
How often does my dog go out and for how long?


The dogs go outside between 5 and 8 times per day, with the last time being after 10 p.m. Of those times, they go to a 3/4 acre fenced play yard at least twice a day and can spend anywhere from 20 minutes to 4 hours each time, depending on how they get along with others (if they are able to join a play group then they can share time and stay out longer), what the weather is doing, and how many dogs are here at that time.
