We are open. We are essential, and we don’t take that privilege and honor lightly. Here in Washington state, we have a Stay at Home/Social Distancing order in place. We will abide by all orders and safety precautions mandated by our governor as we navigate how to live thoughtfully and safely with Covid 19.
What that means for Rover’s Ranch is this:
- Dogs just get to have fun! Always!
- Currently, we are only accepting local dogs.
- To eliminate possible sources of virus, please do not bring your dog’s bedding, toys or food bowls. We will provide clean bedding and bowls.
- Measure your dog’s food liberally into a plastic or metal container and place any medication in a plastic bag inside the food container. When you arrive at Rover’s Ranch, you can set the food container by the kennel office outside door. We will sanitize the container before bringing it into the office.
- When dropping-off and picking-up your dog, please call us to confirm when you are coming so we can be on the lookout for you. You can also call us from our driveway to let us know when you have arrived.
- Please stay outside. The kennel office, indoor and outdoor facilities are off-limits except to the dogs and us.
- Of course, in keeping with best practices, when you drop off your dog, we ask that you abide by the six foot distance rule.
- As always, all visiting dogs must be current on the following required vaccinations: DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo and para influenza), Bordetella (kennel cough), and Rabies.
- All vaccinations must be administered to the dog at least two weeks before boarding. We will only accept dogs for whom we have proof of vaccinations.
- Also as always, if your dog is exhibiting any of the following, we will not accept your dog: lethargy, pink eyes with discharge, nasal discharge or frequent licking of nose, coughing, gagging – like there’s something caught in their throat, sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea, general malaise. If you have questions or concerns about this, please call us in advance. It is better to be safe than sorry.
