Question: Do we bring our pet's bed from home?
iLuckyDog: We provide oversized 5" thick memory foam mattresses on a raised bed frame. If you would like to bring the cover from their bed or a favorite blanket we will put it over the mattress.
Question: How many times do you take them out each day?
iLuckyDog: DayCare is included. We take each guest out to run, play, sniff around and take care of business at least every 2 hours until bedtime . Playtime is accommodated based on the activity level and personality of each guest. We accommodate the guests need for private play if necessary, and other needs that give them the happiest and best experience.
Question: Do you have music, TV and cameras?
iLuckyDog: Each suite has a tablet that with a private connection for you only to log in and see you pet or you can even talk to them. Each suite has flat screen TV that will play 'Relax my Dog' music or anything you want us to play for your pet. If they like a specific genre, a favorite movie or TV show, let us know - we'll put it on!
The entire property, all the exterior and interior is covered by a camera surveillance system that is motion activated and has a single click direct link to 911 emergency services.
We do not publish the video from our surveillance as a safety measure for your pet. Because some pets may have high monetary value, high market value, at risk to be part of domestic disputes or a host of other things, while in our care, we choose to keep your pet and all pets they associate with under the highest safety discretion.
The iLuckyDog associate carry smartphones at all times and they take hundreds of pictures and videos while they are with our guests. If you want us to text or email these to you while you are away, just let us know.
Question: What products do you use to clean? Follow up question: Is it bleach or chlorine based?
iLuckyDog: The product we use is made by the Virox company. The product is branded under multiple product names for a variety of industries such as multiple medical industries, animal industries, cruise ships, aviation, and janitorial industries, plus disaster management, mold remediation. The same product is branded for companion animal use and is called Rescue. As bleach/chlorine do not not clean, and takes 30 minutes contact to disinfect, we have chosen to use Rescue as it cleans, and disinfects in 5 minutes.
We have no drains that get built up with muck and hair that harbor and breed viruses, bacteria and disease. We have a fully integrated cleaning system in every building that after the Rescue has been allowed to clean and disinfect the area the system functions like a wet/dry vacuum system that removes all the waste to a central drain where the solids are captured for disposal and the liquid is washed away to the sanitary sewer system.
The bedding for each suite is changed daily, water and food bowls are cleaned and disinfected in a commercial dishwasher and the floors and walls are cleaned and disinfected daily.
Question: Do you have a pool and how much does it cost to use it?
iLuckyDog: We have a 25,000 gallon, bone shaped, salt water pool, a large splash pad and a small splash pad. There is no additional charge for our guests to use the pool or splash pads and there is no time limit. If your pet likes to swim or if it may be a first experience around a pool, we will monitor them to try it out and we have life vests if they like it, but are less that avid swimmers. The pool is at the pet parent's discretion. If you do not want your pet in or around the pool, or to get wet from the splash pads we will accommodate your request.
Questions: If my dog requires medication or has a health concern either prior to or develops during their stay, what do you do and what does it cost?
iLuckyDog: We have an on-site, full service veterinarian. The Campus Vets. All prescription meds are administered by The Campus Vets at no additional cost. The Campus Vets do a daily health check on each lodging guest and reviews any concerning changes in feeding, weight, temperament, or physical concern. If there is any concern with your pet while in our care and with your permission, The Campus Vets will do an assessment and will contact you for discussion prior to treatment.
Question: My dog is older and prefers to lay around, how often will they check on them?
iLuckyDog: Our Associates ensure that every guest has one on one time every day for belly rubs and scratches and loves. No additional cost for loving to spend time with our guests.
