Guest Policies

Before you check your pet into Golden Paws, please be aware of the following policies designed to ensure your pet has a safe and pleasant stay with us.

Proof of Vaccinations

All pets entering the Resort and Spa are required to have current vaccinations. A veterinary certificate providing proof of vaccination is required at least seven days prior to visiting us.

  • Dogs must have current Rabies, Distemper, Parvo and Bordetella, and we highly recommend Canine Influenza vaccinations. We also require dogs be on a flea and tick preventative.
  • Cats must have current Rabies and FVRCP (Feline Distemper Combo) vaccinations.

Pick-up and Drop-off

Please allow at least 15 minutes for pick-ups and drop-offs in our lobby.

Alternate Contact Information

When you check your pet into Golden Paws, please be aware that you will need to give us an alternate contact name and phone number to keep on file. The individual you give should be local and able to make decisions on your behalf, as well as pick up your pet in the event of an unforeseen circumstance.

Meals and Feeding

We recommend that you bring your pet’s usual food from home to avoid an upset tummy. All dry food must be divided into meal-sized portions and packed in individual sealed sandwich bags with each bag labeled with the pet’s first and last name. Canned food, as well as fresh food, like chicken, vegetables or tuna fish, is also welcome.

Bedding

We provide a comfortable raised bed for all of our canine guests. You are welcome to bring your pet’s own bedding, as long as it will fit in our washer/dryers.

Accommodations for Small Animals

We have cozy individual condos available for our small furry guests. However, if your pet would feel more comfortable, we can use your small animal cage or carrier in lieu of our condos.

Toys

Your dog can bring up to 3 toys from home. Any dog toy is acceptable EXCEPT rope toys, soft plush toys and rawhide in any form. We will do our best to return the toys, but we cannot guarantee you will get the toys back, because they can become damaged or separated from your pet.

Bathing

We want your pet to have a fun and active stay with us. Since play can be messy, all of our canine guests staying 4 nights or more will receive a Basic Bath service in our salon for a fee. If you prefer, your pet can receive even more pampering with a Premium Bath or a Full Service Groom at the end of his or her stay with us. Fees apply for these services.

Medications and Supplements

If your pet needs medication, supplements or vitamins, we require that you provide the medication to us in the original container. The container must clearly indicate the patient name, medication name, strength, dosage, and the prescribing veterinarian, if applicable. Please do not bring any medication, supplements or vitamins already mixed with your pet’s food or in any other packaging except the original container.

Note: Administration fees will apply for oral and topical medications, as well as injections. We do not accept diabetic cats needing insulin at this time.

Medical Emergencies

In the event of a medical emergency, we work closely with Princeton Animal Hospital or NorthStar VETS to provide care. Our staff maintains a detailed log of events for you and your veterinarian, if a health concern arises.
