    Orientation is a prerequisite for availing Daycare and Boarding services at DogNation. This is a simple 25 min process that helps you get a first hand look at what Dogs do at DogNation and also helps your dog to get acquainted with the place and our PawPals.
    The process covers basic temperament testing parameters like resource aggression, Anxiety, Diet refusal, Behavioural changes in new environments, Basic obedience and activity levels. The temperament check is done by bringing in one of our resident well adjusted dogs to observe their behaviour towards other dogs. This helps us understand if they will be getting along in our group activities. We also check for their behaviours away from their parents. We conduct a nose to tail body assessment to identify sensitivities to find out if they are sensitive to any particular area for our understanding so that we can make them comfortable.
    This is a non-chargeable session till stipulated time post which parents will be asked to schedule an appointment for later or extend Orientation into a socialisation session (which is advisable for dogs requiring more time to adapt to new environments) and is chargeable.

    After orientation and reviewing your dog’s vaccination records, DN team will help in scheduling your appointment or building your subscription package, based on the team’s assessment.

BOARDING SECTION
  1. What will my dog do during a typical boarding of 1 night stay?
    After Check-in, your dog will join the other dogs following the daily fun routine and will be matched with similar dogs with regards to temperament, size and age.
    At DogNation we have curated the day as a mix of structured and unstructured play in order to keep them mentally and physically stimulated. The structured play includes activities like agility, mental puzzles, flirt pole, fetch, tug of war etc. being done throughout the day. As part of the unstructured play the dogs are allowed to interact with each other to develop their confidence and social skills. Since we offer socialisation as a service they get the opportunity to meet new dogs and humans on a regular basis which helps them with their mental stimulation.
    During your dog’s stay, meals will be provided by DN or can be given by parents – Breakfast (9:00am) | Lunch (3:00pm) | Dinner (6:00pm) along with medication if any. Dogs generally rest after lunch and go to bed around 10:00pm.

    • Swimming and Activities
    • Basic Obedience Training
    • Grooming, Salon & Spa
    • Massage

    They will be done during the day in slots as per check-out time.

  2. Can you Guide us through the boarding process?
    We have a mandatory orientation process in place which is ideally required to be done at least 4-5 days prior to the boarding dates. The idea of the process is to familiarise the dog with the surrounding environment (handlers, other guest dogs, resident dogs etc.) in order to avoid stress and anxiety during the stay, for the parent to come and see the place and for DN to make an assessment in terms of the dog’s temperament.
  3. Will my small dog be kept with other big dogs?
    We create batches depending upon the size, age and the temperament of the dog in case we feel the dog is too stressed out or is anxious around dogs bigger than them. However we do encourage dogs to meet and mix up all sizes and kinds as long as the dog is not uncomfortable as this can lead to better socialisation and confidence building, but is always executed under supervision.
  4. Will my dog be caged?
    No, we maintain a leash free and open environment. Only on the rare event of a dog exhibiting any aggressive behavior, we isolate them with one handler in order to safeguard the other guest dogs in the premises.
  5. Do You Use Crates/Cages?
    DogNation is essentially a leash free and a cage free environment, however in case we have to board any dogs who are not social and do not enjoy the company of other dogs or exhibit any aggressive behavior or behaviour that might lead to fights, we put them in the crate at night for sleeping as we cannot risk the safety of other guest dogs.
  6. How will my dog sleep at DN?
    We understand most of the dogs are not habituated to sleeping in crates or cages and hence we wanted to give them an environment as close to home as possible. The entire property is available for the dogs to sleep based on size, temperament and age based segregation and grouping done by the DN team, since we wanted to emulate a pawjama party feel.. The dogs are given comfy beds, dog houses or tents and they take their pick, with one to two handlers supervising and manning each group depending upon the group size.

TRAINING SECTION
  1. Do you train dogs? What is the process like?
    We offer basic obedience training and have 2 modules for it. One is a 8 session program and the other one is a 15 session programme. The session is designed in a manner where the parent is requested to be present throughout where most of the training is directed towards the parent. Each session is for 45 mins to an hour where the dog is allowed to socialise and play to stabilise and bring down their energy levels as training requires the dog to be calm and focused. Parents are also requested to carry their favourite toy or treat for maximum attention. The success of the programme is heavily dependent on 100% participation of the parent. The DN trainer shall be demonstrating the commands on the dog and the parent is expected to repeat it right after that. We encourage parents to take videos of the session if required. The parents are requested to practice the commands taught for at least 10-15 times a day but not for more than 2 mins at a stretch. We are all ears for any behavior related issues you might want to discuss and correct.

MEDICAL FAQs
  1. What is canine cough?
    Infectious tracheobronchitis is a highly contagious upper-respiratory disease which is spread by an airborne virus. The incubation period of the disease is roughly 3-7 days. The main symptom is a gagging cough, sometimes accompanied by sneezing and nasal discharge, which can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Although this coughing is very annoying, it does not usually develop into anything more serious. However, just as with the common cold see in humans, it can lower the dog’s resistance to other diseases making him/her susceptible to secondary infections. He/she must therefore be observed closely to avoid complications, and if symptoms become worse consult your Veterinarian.
  2. How is it cured?
    Just as in the case of the common cold, tracheobronchitis is not “cured”, but must run its course. Antibiotics will often be prescribed to prevent secondary infection, and sometimes cough suppressants will be prescribed to reduce excessive coughing, but these medications will not cure the disease. Does tracheobronchitis only occur in kennels? No. Since these viruses can be present anywhere and can travel considerable distances through the air, they can affect any dog, even one which never leaves its own backyard. However, tracheobronchitis is more likely to occur where the concentration of dogs is greater such as at dog shows, kennels, veterinary offices and hospitals, pet shops, dog parks, or dog classes. Dogs can also be exposed while running loose in your area or while being walked near other dogs. In kennels, dogs are in close contact with each other, and can be feeling highly stimulated and perhaps a little stressed from being away from their home environment. These factors can result in a lower resistance to the disease. If your pet dog is exposed to other dogs regularly (such as regular doggie daycare, pet resort stays, dog park visits, etc.), then your dog is more likely to acquire immunity – 2 –
    to the disease. It is important to note that even during a widespread outbreak, only a relatively small percentage of dogs are affected.
  3. Are viruses a constant problem?
    No. Tracheobronchitis, like the flu, is often seasonal. It also tends to be an epidemic. When veterinarians begin to see cases, they normally come from every pet related business or activity in the area, as well as from individual dog owners whose dogs are not socialised at all. When the outbreak is over, they might not see another case for months.
  4. Can my dog be vaccinated to protect him against tracheobronchitis?
    Yes! Vaccines against parainfluenza and adenovirus type 2 (in combination with other vaccines) are routinely used as part of an adult dog’s yearly check up. Puppies are usually vaccinated for these in combination with distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus in a series of immunisations. It is important to note that the vaccines that are used to prevent this viral disease are made from one strain of more than 100 different strains of the virus and therefore are not as effective against some strains as others are. Intra-nasal vaccines are also available for Bordetella Bronchloseptica (another cause of canine cough). Although some veterinary practices do not use this intra-nasal vaccination routinely, it should be considered for pets that board or for those whose veterinarian recommends it. Your veterinarian is in the best position to recommend a program of preventative health care management depending on your pet’s needs.
  5. Can the kennel prevent my dog from catching tracheobronchitis?
    Unfortunately, no amount of supervision, sanitation, or personalised care can prevent a dog from “catching” an airborne virus. Just as your child’s school has no way of preventing a flu outbreak, a pet boarding facility has no way of preventing Canine Cough. Schools, hotels, and pet boarding facilities alike cannot be held responsible for any virus outbreak. Instead, a good boarding facility will recommend immunisation against tracheobronchitis, refuse to board any obviously sick dog, listen and watch for any signs of sickness (strangely, the dog with parainfluenza alone may not appear ill, yet is already contagious), and make sure that any dog requiring veterinary attention receives it as quickly as possible. The pet owner is financially responsible for such care.
  6. What should you do if you dog is diagnosed with Canine Cough?
    If your dog is diagnosed with canine cough, you must keep your dog at home and ensure that they do not have contact with any other dog outside of your household. Additionally, if your pet is booked to go to a boarding facility, it is essential that you do not take them if they are unwell or have been diagnosed with Canine Cough, as it presents a high risk for your pet spreading the virus to other pets in the facility. One of the biggest challenges faced in high risk areas and activities such as dog parks, boarding facilities, doggie day care centres, dog training classes, pet sitters or vet surgeries is that the dogs.
  7. Summary of Points:
    1. Canine Cough is one of the most common respiratory diseases in dogs.
    2. It is often incorrectly referred to as “Kennel Cough”, although it can be transmitted anywhere that dogs gather, and even in your own home from dogs passing by your yard who are infected.
    3. The term Kennel Cough used incorrectly is now considered to be factually wrong and has resulted in litigation against users of the term.
    4. This virus is not caused or related to a Kennel, it is a virus that can be contracted in countless places.
    5. No amount of supervision, sanitization, or personalised care can prevent a dog from “catching” an airborne virus such as Canine Cough.
    6. The best defense to protect your pet is to ensure that they are fully vaccinated and receive their booster vaccine every year.

    There are many different illnesses in dogs that require rapid attention, but Bloat or GDV is the one condition that requires absolute immediate emergency treatment. It is imperative that pet owners are aware of the signs and symptoms of this condition and the urgency of the situation if it is suspected.

  8. What is Bloat/GDV?
    GDV (Gastric Dilation Volvulus) is a term that refers to a rare but extremely serious disease that can occur in dogs. It refers to a sequence of events that starts with the stomach bloating, where gas and/or food stretch the stomach to larger than its normal size causing abdominal pain.
  9. What are the signs and symptoms of Bloat?
    1. Sudden abdominal pain and swelling
    2. Distress and anxiety
    3. Change in demeanor
    4. Panting
    5. Restlessness (pacing)
    6. Retching without vomiting
    7. Shock
  10. What are the risk factors?
    1. Large, deep chested breeds
    2. Increasing age
    3. Family history of bloat
    4. Rapid eating
  11. How is it treated?
    A dog with symptoms of Bloat needs immediate veterinary treatment. A dog with a bloated, twisted stomach will die in a matter of hours unless drastic steps are taken immediately.
  12. Can the Pet Resort prevent my dog from suffering from bloat?
    Unfortunately, there is nothing that your pet resort/ Boarding center can do to eliminate the risk of bloat occurring. The reality is that it is still not fully known why this condition occurs. Whilst some risk factors have been identified over time, bloat can happen anytime without warning, and without those risk factors being present, and in most cases there is no explanation as to why it has occurred. All that a good boarding facility can do is be on the lookout for any possible physical symptoms of bloat, and act quickly if it is seen by seeking immediate veterinary treatment. The pet owner is financially responsible for such care. A pet resort cannot prevent your dog from bloating, as the main risk factors are the breed of the dog and eating habits, which are 2 things outside of the pet resort’s control.
  13. Summary of Points:
    1. Bloat has a high mortality rate and requires immediate veterinary treatment.
    2. Other than breed predisposition, it is not known what causes Bloat (or GVD) to occur.
    3. When this condition occurs, the bloated stomach rotates and therefore twists off its own blood supply, leading to shock.
    4. If you see signs of bloat, do not delay.
    5. Take your dog to the nearest Vet Hospital for treatment.
