FEBRUARY DENTAL SAVINGS!

    Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Health Month? This means now is the time to establish routine dental care for your dog or cat if you don't already do so. It is always a good idea to get your pet used to having their mouth looked at, having their teeth brushed, taking them to their veterinarian for yearly examinations, etc. There are a number of products that help maintain dental health and reduce tartar build up like Hill's T/D dental diet, water additives, enzymatic formulated dental chews, daily brushing, and topical gels to name a few. In addition to home care, scheduling your pet for a thorough dental cleaning and x-rays will significantly improve your loved one's dental health as well as overall health. Continual dental care can prolong your pet's life by reducing the risk of kidney and heart disease among other conditions; it's not just about eliminating bad breath.

New training opportunities for 2019: Stay and Train

New training opportunities for 2019: Stay and Train
 Stay and Train provides fast results and is an excellent option for those with a busy schedule or when you go on vacation. Your pet will stay in our  climate controlled indoor and outdoor kennels and receive daily personal training in the areas you would like us to focus on. Your dog will get a minimum of one hour of training each day at an appropriate pace, will enjoy interactive and structured play in a safe and educational environment. The Stay and Train program will be personalized to meet the needs of you and your pet. You will also receive one FREE private lesson upon completion of our Stay and Train program, to transition you to your dog's new skills in order to help maintain these new behaviors at home. 
Our philosophy is that a well-behaved dog requires a lifetime of reinforcement to maintain good behavior. Participation is strongly recommended in continued education training, so your dog's skills never fail. We can provide this through private training, group classes, or your pet is always welcome for a Day Board to train any day of the week Monday through Friday where we can work on any specific behavior you choose. This is a quality opportunity for a refresher on obedience and offers mental and physical stimulation. The Pend Oreille Pet Lodge Canine Training Team is here to help you lead the way to a loving and obedient companion! 
 

Pet Lodge, Grooming, and Training Services Vaccine Protocol

When: Effective January 1st 2019

To continue to provide the best possible care for your companions we will be improving our vaccine policy. All dogs or cats coming in for lodging, grooming, or training are required to have their vaccines administered by a veterinarian BEFORE coming to visit us. So please make your appointments for their immunizations a head of time so they are all caught up PRIOR to their check in. If they are being updated at another clinic, please provide us with this documentation prior to their arrival. Fax or emailed copies works great. If you need any assistance contacting your veterinarian or if you find out your pet is out of date, let us know and we would be happy to help.
