THE BARKSHIRE requires that you bring in your dog’s regular food, to avoid changes in the dog’s diet. Individual meals must be packaged in zip-lock bags, and must include enough meals for the entire length of stay. No rawhides please.
Any medication your dog requires must be labeled, with dosage instructions included.
If your dog becomes ill during their stay, we will contact you and your veterinarian immediately. In case of emergency, we will transport your dog to the nearest veterinary clinic.
A visit to THE BARKSHIRE requires a veterinarian certificate showing proof of
vaccinations for DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and parainfluenza), Rabies, Bordetella, Bivalent Canine Influenza and a Fecal exam. Titer protection may be substituted for the distemper and parvovirus vaccinations. Dogs must be spayed or neutered after 6 months of age. Please ask for our Neuter/ Spay policy. We welcome puppies as long as they have their full round of shots.
Every dog is required to pass a brief temperament test before his/her first stay.
Every dog must be spayed/neutered and evaluated prior to attending THE BARKSHIRE. Such evaluation may assess the dog’s temperament and interactions with
other dogs and THE BARKSHIRE staff.
I understand certain activities that my dog may participate in – including daycare, boarding, one-on-one play, movement within and outside the facility, and
transportation to and from THE BARKSHIRE – may involve risk and possible injury, including but not limited to: exposure to parasites, viruses, and other medical
conditions passed from dog-to-dog or person-to-dog; sprains, strains, bites or broken bones; motor vehicle accident during transportation; and fatigue, dehydration,
nicks, cuts, or death.
I further understand that not each and every potential risk can be listed above but, nonetheless agree, that the benefits associated with dog socialization outweigh the
possible risks, therefore, I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to hold harmless and indemnify THE BARKSHIRE and its agents, successors,
heirs, from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, or rights of action, which are related to, arise out of, or are in any way connected with my dog’s stay at THE
BARKSHIRE, including those allegedly attributable to the negligent acts or omissions of THE BARKSHIRE or their staff.
Further, I understand that I may be exposed to certain risks when bringing my dog to participate in activities. Such risks may include property damage and/or physical
injury inside or outside the facility, such as from falling, slipping, illness, and/or dog bites. Therefore, I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to hold
harmless and indemnify THE BARKSHIRE, its agents, successors, heirs from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, or rights of action, which are related to,
arise out of, or are in any way connected with my dog’s stay at THE BARKSHIRE including those allegedly attributable to the negligent acts or omissions of the
BARKSHIRE or their staff.
My dog’s complete veterinary records must be furnished to THE BARKSHIRE. These records must include proof of vaccinations and/or treatment for: Rabies,
Parvovirus, Distemper, Bordetella, Bivalent Canine Influenza Virus,Fecal test, Heartworm, Fleas, and ticks. Records may be sent to 1501 Temple City Drive, Troy, MI
48084 or faxed to (248) 792 9445. I further attest that my dog is free of parasites and other illnesses that can be transmitted from dog-to-dog. Due to the high risk of
dog-to-dog transmission of such parasites and/or viruses, I agree that I will immediately notify THE BARKSHIRE if I learn or suspect my dog has parasites or viruses
and agree to not bring my dog to THE BARKSHIRE for any activities.
If my dog is ill or injured while participating in activities at THE BARKSHIRE, THE BARKSHIRE will make every reasonable effort to reach me pursuant to the contact information I have provided. However, if THE BARKSHIRE is unable to reach me, I consent to THE BARKSHIRE seeking appropriate veterinary care; I accept
responsibility for any and all associated expenses. THE BARKSHIRE will not pay any portion of veterinary expenses associated with seeking medical care for my dog if so necessary.
Medication must be labeled, with dosage instructions included. I agree that I will disclose to THE BARKSHIRE any allergies my dog may have and any special dietary
needs or medications my dog may require during the stay.
I grant permission to use pictures taken of my dog for visual image(s) and statement(s) in newsletters, posters, and other business-related materials which may
include advertising, website images and other uses.
I affirm that I am not aware of any vicious tendencies by my dog(s).
