Frequently Asked Questions:

If you don't find the answer to your question here, please feel free to contact us.

I've driven up and down Enterprise Drive and can't find you.

We are on Enterprise Court, which is a small cul-de-sac off of Enterprise Drive.

Do I need a reservation?
Boarding always requires a reservation, but don't be afraid to try to make a last minute or even same day reservation.
Reservations are recommended for daycare spots.  There may be times when daycare fills up and drop-ins will have to be turned away.

What vaccinations are required?

All dogs, boarding or daycare, are required to have current vaccinations against canine influenza, bordetella, rabies and DHPP.  If you provide the name of your vet when you make the reservation, we can call ahead and obtain your pet's vaccination record. We do require that the bordetella vaccination be done no more than six months and not less than 48 hours before your dog comes to daycare or for boarding.

What is Kennel Cough and what is the risk of my dog getting it?

Like colds or flu in humans, your dog is more likely to get kennel cough in any situation where there large numbers of dogs.  An excellent article on this virus can be found here:  http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/issues/11_10/features/Kennel-Cough-Remedies_16067-1.html

Where will my dog go to the bathroom?

Dogs are taken outside at least 4 times a day to relieve themselves. The area is fenced and supervised and has artificial turf for optimum hygiene.

Can you groom my dog before I pick him up?

Because we choose to do one thing and to do it well, we do not provide grooming at our facility.  After a stay at Uppity Pup, you will find that your dog is less likely to come home with that "kennel smell" than from some dog boarding facilities.  This is because we have a state of the art filtering system and keep our facility as clean as possible.  If you still want to have your dog groomed, there are a couple of mobile groomers in the community who are happy to come to Uppity Pup to take care of those services for you.  You will need to arrange and pay for this with the groomer yourself.  They are usually booked out a ways, so make arrangements early.
