Boarding Requirements
Proof of Rabies (Dogs and Cats) and Bordatella (Dogs Only) Vaccines must be provided at time of Boarding.  If you have the injectable Bordatella the vaccination has to have been given in two doses 28 day prior to boarding.  The Intranasal (the one they put the dogs nose) or oral must be given a minimum of 72 hours prior to boarding.  In emergency situations we can arrange for the Intranasal vaccine to be administered by a Veterinarian when the dogs arrive for boarding, additional charges will apply.  DALPP vaccine is recommended this is the 5-way from your vet.  Dogs under 6 months of age are required to have had two DALPP vaccinations to be protected from Parvo.

Pets are dropped off between (8 am and 12 pm by appointment for boarding) to allow them the afternoon to adjust to their new environment and have a stress free night at Legend Acres 

Pick up by appointment 7 days a week from 6am-9pm.

Legend Acres recommends that you bring your pets own food when they come to stay with us.  This reduces the chance of stomach upset and them not liking our food.  Feel free to bring any special bowls, treats, or food with your pets.

You can bring your pets bed, toys, favorite shirt, coat ( the kennel is heated to 45 degrees in the winter small dogs are brought in at night in cold weather), favorite blanket, or crate if that is where they feel safe and secure.  ​​​​
Make sure you bring your pets medications and medical records.  There are no additional charges to administer medication!

Kennels are indoor/outdoor runs, which means each kennel has its own heated inside area and a doggie door to its own outside area.  The dogs go in and out as they please.  The indoor and outdoor flooring is rough concrete to reduce slipping on wet concrete.  Because your dogs will have freedom to move in and out, they will.  Additional walks can be requested see our VID packages.  When your dogs get home don't be surprised if all they want to do for the next two days is sleep.  Adaptil is used in the kennel as an intricate part of our low stress boarding to reduce stress and provide your dogs with a happy healthy stay at Legend Acres. Adaptil is a pheromone that nursing mothers give off to her puppies. The kennel is heated in the winter and has multiple fans for cooling in warm weather.  If you have smaller house dogs or young puppies arrangements can be made to have them crated in the house where they will receive the same affection and attention as our larger dogs and will walked an additional two more times daily. Legend Acres has a barking protocol in place to . 

Excessive or prolonged barking is not normal and indicates the need for appropriate response. Ignoring excessive barking can be considered inhumane treatment. You are invited to review our in-practice protocol on how we respond to barking, which you will find below. You will find our policies demonstrate concern and understanding for barking dogs. You will also find we have studied canine barking, and approach this behavior with the pet’s best interest in mind.

What causes dogs to bark excessively, whine and be destructive when left alone?
Dogs are social animals and can act out destructive behaviors due to separation anxiety. Dogs that suffer from separation anxiety exhibit behaviors associated with stress, fear and anxiety, such as restlessness, excessive whining and barking, and adult destructive chewing.
What types of situations can cause a dog stress?
• Separation Anxiety: physical separation from the owner/pet guardian to whom it is attached.
• New People/Things: moving or major changes in the household, remodeling or redecorating, new pieces of furniture.
• Fear/Phobias: thunderstorms, lightening, fireworks.
• Temporary changes: being transported, hospitalized or boarded.

What is Adaptil™?
Developed for pet owners by veterinarians, Adaptil.™ (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) mimics the properties of the natural pheromones of the lactating female. Within three to five days after giving birth, the female generates pheromones that give their puppies a sense of well-being and reassurance, known as appeasing pheromones.

How is Adaptil.™ used?
Adaptil™ is an easy-to-use "plug-in" diffuser that consists of an electrical plug-in unit and disposable (30-day) bottle that will deliver the pheromone 24 hours a day. It continuously releases the active ingredient into the dog's environment and allows trouble-free treatment in a 700-square-foot area for approximately four weeks.  Adaptil also comes in collar form that the has a slow release of phermones that lasts for 30 days and in travel spray form that lasts for 4 hours.  Legend Acres has Adaptil collars availbe in our store as well as our online store.

How well does Adaptil™ work?
In clinical trials with Adaptil™, destructive behavior and vocalization (excessive barking and whining) were improved or resolved by 72 percent and 85 percent respectively. (Clinical trials were conducted by Ceva Sante Animale between November 1999 and November 2000, and were under the specific direction of Dr. Patrick Pageat.)

Is it a sedative?
No, Adaptil™ is a solution that helps calm and reassure puppies and adult dogs.

Should any precautions be taken with pets and children?
Proper product use will not harm children, adults or pets. Plug diffusers into electric sockets in an open area most frequented by the dog.

Barking Protocol
Excessive or prolonged barking is not normal and indicates the need for appropriate response. Ignoring excessive barking can be considered inhumane treatment. You are invited to review our in-practice protocol on how we respond to barking. You will find our policies demonstrate concern and understanding for barking dogs. You will also find we have studied canine barking, and approach this behavior with the pet’s best interest in mind.

In some cases, it is simply not possible to comfort a pet that is separated from its family. We use DAP in our Kennel, a dog appeasing pheromone to relieve anxiety and stress. Mild sedation is generally the last option, after every other technique has been attempted. Having this option available is a major benefit of a veterinary supervised kennel. In fact, it is only in a veterinary supervised kennel, that your pet can have its anxiety reduced in a safe and controlled environment. Our goal is to care for your pet so that he or she is happy and relaxed during their stay with us.

The first time it is necessary a mild sedation homeopathic spray is used in the dogs area and on its bedding, if this is not effective a homeopathic drop is added to the water,  it is provided to the pet at no charge to you.  If your pet does not respond then they will be taken to the supervising veterinarian for an appropriate sedative.  Your alternatives for next visit are to: 1) to request and purchase oral tranquilization, and authorize its use in future boarding. (This is significantly less expensive than the injectable form), 2) schedule a behavior consultation, or, 3) pay for alternative treatment as necessary during future visits.

When you can’t be with your pet, please give them the gift of anxiety-free relaxation when they are staying with us.
