  • Treats and bones: We highly recommend you provide meaty, enticing bones for your pet’s visit at Elevation Dogs. Over the years we have seen times and times again how the peaceful chewing on a bone has helped our guests settle and bring down levels of anxiety/stress. Of course we will only give them their bones when they are in their private space to avoid any guarding issues.
  • Medication and supplements: We don’t charge extra to administer medication and are happy to feed any supplements your dog is used to.
  • Crate or carrier: You may bring your dog's crate or carrier if this is where your dog settles best.
  • Dog coat and dog booties: Bring a dog coat and booties in the colder months of the year if your dog gets cold easily. That way outside play sessions and going to the bathroom can be enjoyed a bit more hopefully. Of course times outside will vary depending on the dogs' enjoyment with or without gear. For your convenience we sell a few select styles and sizes of dog coats and booties at Elevation Dogs. Ask us about them.
