Common Questions:

What are the hours for pick up and drop off?

We are open 7 days a week from 7AM - 7PM. You may pick up / drop off your dog anytime we are open.

Can I tour the facility?

Yes! Please, do! At Taming the Wild, you never have to make an appointment to come in for a tour. Drop by any time we are open and take a tour. We are proud to show you our facility!

What vaccinations does my dog need to board?

Dogs must be current on their Rabies, Bordetella and Distemper vaccinations. We require proof of those vaccinations before the dogs are allowed in our kennel / daycare areas.

How old does my dog have to be to be kept in the general population?

At least 4 months. We do board puppies younger than 4 months, but separate them from the general population.

Can my dogs stay together?

Yes! In fact, we encourage it! We call that “Pack Boarding.” We will try to find a packmate for all dogs to help lower stress levels.

Does my dog have to participate in Pack Boarding?

No, although we do encourage Pack Boarding to help lower stress levels, it isn’t required to board with us. If you would prefer for your dog to board alone, that is an option. Just let us know!

My dog takes medication. Are you able to give it to them?

Yes, we will gladly administer medications to your dog. Please keep the medications in the original prescription container so that we have detailed information about the medication. You must also provide detailed administration information upon drop off. (There is an additional charge for administering medications.)

Does my dog need to be on a leash when arriving or leaving Taming the Wild?

Yes! All dogs are required to be on leash at all times when coming or going. This is for the safely of your dog. This will also keep our lobby environment calm and running smoothly. Remember, not all dogs that come to Taming the Wild are dog friendly. 

My dog is sick. Can they still come in to board?

If your dog has an illness that is contagious (cough, runny nose, sneeze), do not bring them to Taming the Wild until you have veterinary clearance that they are no longer contagious. If your dog has an illness that is not contagious, we are happy to take good care of them while you are away. If your dog has a compromised immune system or other serious health issues, you should discuss your plans with your veterinarian before deciding to board them in any facility. Remember, Taming the Wild cannot be held responsible if your dog becomes ill during or after their stay.

Do I need to bring my dog’s food if they are boarding?

Yes, please! To prevent stomach upset, we like to keep dog’s on their same diet. You may send your dog’s food in individually packed containers or one big bag. Whatever is most convenient for you.  However, please bring enough to last your dog’s stay.

My dog usually eats 3 times per day. Can they still do this while they are boarding at Taming the Wild?

Yes! When you drop your dog off for boarding, you will be asked about your dog’s eating schedule. Please inform the staff and we will keep them on their routine. 

What if my dog is not a good fit for Group Play?

No worries! Some dogs, like some people, don’t enjoy social settings. We will ensure that your dog gets lots of human attention!
