What kind of accommodations are best for my dog?

Just review our list of available suites on the accommodations page. Your dog gets complete pampering in our Villa, Luxury or Executive Suites. They may also be very comfortable in one of our Classic kennels (consider some a la carte upgrades like an afternoon treat or a late night tuck-in).

Do you require a deposit?

Yes,. We require a $15 per pet deposit to be made for all Boarding & Meet and Greet reservations. Deposits can be paid online through your owner portal or over the phone with our staff. Deposits must be paid before check-in. 

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations can be made 48 hours prior to scheduled check-on. No shows and cancellations made within 48 hours of scheduled check-in will forfeit their deposit. For cancellations made before 48 hours prior to check-in, paid deposits will be added to your account for future services.  Daycare and Grooming cancellation fees are equivalent to the scheduled service. If customer has a Daycare/Enrichment package on their account credits will be used in lieu of charging card on file.


Can I bring my pet's bedding?

COVID-19 Policy: Right now, we are not permitting any bedding or toys from home. We have plenty of soft blankets and bedding available that you can request during check-in!

Can the staff administer my pet's medication?

Yes.  We are unable to give any kind of injectable medication. If your pet is on an extensive medication plan please speak to one of our customer service representatives before booking an appointment to ensure that we can properly care for your pet.


Can I bring my pet's own food?

Yes. All food must be pre-bagged by the meal.


Can my pet be groomed while staying with you?

Yes, depending on availability.  Just let us know that you'd like a grooming to be scheduled while booking your reservation. Service cannot be guaranteed if requested on the day of drop off, as our groomer's schedule fills up quickly. 


Can I call to check in on my pet?

Yes, of course. Pet parents frequently want to hear how their pet is doing; we are always more than happy to give you a complete report.

Exceptions to the coverage are: 1. Pre-existing health conditions (such as gastric upset/issues i.e.: colitis, IBS), injury, illness, or death resulting from incidents occurring before the arrival date. 2. Gastric dilation-volvuls (bloat). 3. PSV Promise will not cover bordetella/bronchiseptica/tracheobronchitis/parainfluenza/mycoplasma (Kennel Cough).


Why don't you accept females in heat at your facility?

Not only are females in heat a flight risk due to seeking a mate, but they also disrupt dogs within the facility. For the safety and well-being of all dogs in our facility we can not accept females during their heat cycle.


Can my dog stay in the same suite as my friend's dog?

No. For the safety of all our guests we only board dogs in the same suite if they live in the same household together. Boarding is a stressful event that can cause friction between dogs that are not used to being in confined, unsupervised areas together.


Why does my dog have to go through another meet & greet for Enrichment if he hasn't been within the last 6 months?

Because dog behaviors are ever changing and evolving, Meet & Greets ensure the safety of all our Enrichment dogs.


Are Bearden Hill enrichment passes transferable to the West Location?

No, Bearden Hill has a different pricing structure than the West Location. Even though the passes are non-transferable you are able to hold a pass for each location.


Why do you require Bordetella to be given every 6 months when my vet said my dog only has to have it once a year?

PetSafe Village follows the American Veterinary Medical Association's vaccination guidelines.
