How can I see pictures of my pets during their stay?
Our technicians post photos of pets via Facebook for the Ranch Retreat and Instagram for the Urban Oasis. Pictures are taken by the technicians at their discretion based on guests comfort levels, safety during play time, and if the technician is so involved in the play time they forget their camera. Pictures are regularly posted Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday if technicians are available.
My dog does not get along with other dogs, will he still be able to play outside?
Outdoor playtime is available for all guests. Private play yards are available as needed if your pet does not enjoy socialization, or is an intact male or female. Staff members facilitate individual play with your pet to ensure they have a wonderful time.
What happens in the case of an emergency?
Your pet will be cared for by our staff, and when necessary the veterinarian on staff at Canine Country Club will contact you. On rare occasions it may be necessary to contact a local or emergency veterinarian, such as the Dallas Animal Emergency Clinic. Any medical treatment provided will be included on a final invoice through Canine Country Club or Highland Park Animal Hospital.
Why do my pets come home dirty?
Guests at the Ranch Retreat play, regularly, outside regardless of weather. Guests have access to our walk-in pond, portable dog pools, large water troughs, and sprinkler fountains. Also, if guests are in group play, they always share their sticky fun with friends.
Common coat conditions after being at the ranch include some grass particles, some knots or matting of long haired or curly coated guests. Exit Services allow for light brushing and detangling of some mats, but technicians are not able to demat guests or brush out extensive burs. We highly recommend for long haired or curly coated pets to have an established grooming schedule set up with a groomer after returning for the Ranch Retreat. Also for pets with medium to long hair, you can prepare for your stay by letting your groomer know so they can give your pet a shorter hair cut or trim behind the ears to eliminate potential matting.
Guests at the Urban Oasis play with splash pads, bubble machines, sprinkler fountains, and water toys. Also, if guests are in group play, they always share their sticky fun with friends. Common coat conditions after being at the Urban Oasis include light matting behind the ears of long coated or sporting breed guests. Also some curly coated or long coated breeds may have some tangles and light matting from playing outside in our courtyard with our splash pads or their friends.
An Exit bath will help your pet be clean, but may not take care of all coat conditions such as matting or shedding. Exit baths consist of guests being bathed in a shampoo based on their coat type and skin condition, blow dry, 10 minute light brush out, and fragrance mist.
My dog does nothing but sleep after a visit to the Canine Country Club. Is that normal?
Many dogs need a few days to rest up after their vacation. The high level of physical activity and the stimulation of spending 24 hours a day with his friends can be exhausting. After a couple of days, your dog should have rested up from his vacation in the country, and be back to his old self.
