We encourage you to bring in toys, bedding, food etc. To make your pets stay as comfortable as possible. We cannot however guarantee that the belongings will be returned in the same condition as they were received, in addition we do not accept any responsibility for your belongings whilst they are with us.
We do not accept food bowls, bean bags or collars, leads, harnesses etc.
Delivery & Collection Times
If for whatever reason, collection is late, due to delayed plane times, etc. Please try to inform the kennels and wherever possible make provisions for your pet’s collection. We ask that you will work with us and accept any extra charges this may incur. Charges will be in accordance with the kennel pricing at the time of boarding.
If for whatever reason your pet is not collected and you the owner have had no contact with the kennels to explain or extend the stay, your pet will be deemed as homeless after the 7th day after collection was initially due. You will subsequently be charged any additional boarding costs in addition to any costs involved with the re-homing of your pet.
Please try to abide by our check in and check out times. When we are able to be flexible we will be, however it is not always possible and we thank you for your understanding in this matter
All pets are exercised 4 times a day.
Pets can be either exercised individually or with other dogs of a similar nature. The latter option carries a risk, however every care will be taken when choosing which dogs to exercise with other dogs. If you choose this option, G.V.W. cannot be held responsible for any injuries caused, unless it was due to our negligence.
Pets can also be exercised on or off of the lead. No responsibility will be taken for dogs that are to be exercised off the lead, that do not have suitable recall skills
Leads & Collars
Here at GVW, we walk on our own rope slip leads, this enables staff to put on and take off leads with
the least fuss and invasion of the dogs sensitive neck area.
We also ask for all collars belonging to your dogs to be removed for safety reasons.
If you wish either for your collars to be left on during your pets stay or for your own collar/leads to be used on their walks, then you will be asked to sign a form.
By signing this form you accept that GVW have no responsibly for any loss of belongings or any injuries caused to your pet by using/leaving these items on/with your pet.
Health Related Issues
If your pet is showing signs of illness or injury we will show our commitment by calling a vet promptly for treatment. It will be the client's responsibility to settle the vets' bill upon their return. In the event of the illness/injury being a direct result of Glebe Von Wood Kennel’s the bill will be the responsibility of the kennels to settle.
If in the event of your pet passing away during their stay with us, please confirm whether you would like a single or mass cremation. Please note the cost of cremation will be the responsibility of the owner and all bills forwarded to you directly from the crematorium.
Vaccinations: Dogs must be accompanied by an up to date record of vaccination against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, leptospirosis etc. Initial vaccinations must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to the 1st date of boarding unless a shorter time is approved by a vet.
As of October 2008 The Kennel Cough vaccination is a requirement.
You as an owner must take your pet to the vets to have their kennel cough vaccine administered. The vaccination needs to be done 14 days before your dog will be allowed onto site. If any dogs are coughing before their visit to us, we will not be able to take them for their stay. The incubation period for kennel cough can be 3 - 10 days before any symptoms show, therefore it is possible for both yourselves and ourselves to check dogs in that may already have the virus. We will keep you informed of any outbreaks of kennel cough and ask that if you think you’re pet may have contracted kennel cough, to contact us immediately. We are not responsible for any dogs contracting kennel cough.
Confirmation of recent broad spectrum de-worming & de-flea for dogs that will have access to a communal exercise area must be provided by owners.
If your pet is found to have either fleas or worms whilst in the kennels will make a charge for each service.
Glebe Von Wood staff (GVW) are happy to administer any medication that you require your pet to have whilst staying with us. We will administer medications as detailed by either yourself or the vet. All medications (if more than 1 medication) must come in a daily pill dispensing box.
GVW staff are not however veterinary qualified and therefore will accept no liability regarding administering of medications.
GVW staff are not on duty from 7/8pm – 6/7am, depending on the season.
We are not able to make out of hours checks on any dogs within our care.
