The most important thing you can bring for your dog’s stay is their food. A change in your dog’s diet can upset your pup and cause tummy troubles. We want your baby to be comfortable and as stress free as possible, so bringing the same food they get at home is really important.
To make sure we are giving your baby exactly what they need and they have plenty of food for their stay, we do REQUIRE that their food is brought portioned out into their individual meals. Please, make sure to clearly label them if they are not all the same. We should have one bag/container for each meal they will get while with us.
We can accommodate your feeding needs!
Because we are not watching your pup the entire time they are eating, for your pup’s safety we cannot give your dog:
If you know that your dog is super high energy and participates in group play, you may want to add a little extra to each portion. They are outside running and playing for hours and will be burning more energy than they do at home.
All uneaten food that is offered to your dog will be disposed. To keep our facility as clean as possible and to offer your dog only fresh clean food, we cannot collect uneaten food and offer it again later. If your pup usually goes on a hunger strike when boarding, you may want to lessen the amount you pack per meal. You may consider including some wet food, a food additive or other savory topper to entice them to eat.
Make sure your feeding instructions are correct on your dog’s profile! You can log in and view or edit this as needed. Leave us any special instructions here as well.
Zip baggies work great to portion dry food. Small plastic containers are great for meal toppers, and we are happy to return them to you!
Thank you for helping us make sure your pup has a great stay at Wag!
