You may bring:
Please bring your own dog food. This helps with GI upsets. We just ask that
it be in a hard container. NO BAGS! Bags can rip and spill. Write name & directions for feeding
blanket that smells like home as long as it is washable. Sometimes dogs spill their water or food & bedding needs to be washed.
PLEASE no giant dog beds.
A special toy that your dog enjoys,
we do have plenty but some dogs enjoy having their favorite toys with them.
ARRIVAL DAY :
PLEASE allow enough time to check in. Our pets, especially
dogs are very sensitive to our moods and feelings. If you arrive rushed or worried about leaving, your dog will arrive at
Ramson agitated and concerned. “Emotional farewells” are also very difficult for dogs and make them feel upset
If your dog gets car sick, DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG OR GIVE MORE THAN SMALL QUANTITIES OF WATER FOR AT
LEAST 2 HOURS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL TIME.
PICK-UP DAY :
Try not to be overly excited
when you pick up your dog. He's/She's already excited about seeing you and if you remain calm, he'll/ she'll feel more secure
about leaving you in the future.
DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG OR GIVE MORE THAN VERY SMALL QUANTITIES OF WATER FOR AT LEAST 2
HOURS AFTER PICK-UP. Your dog will be very excited and happy to see you. He/She may gulp their food or water, and this can
cause digestive upsets.
Don’t be surprised if your dog sleeps a lot the first day or two back at home. The
home environment is very quiet and calm after the excitement of visiting with us, and this sleepiness is quite common and
