Lucky Dog Requirements, Policies & Procedures

Due to the nature of dog-play environments, all prospective clients are asked to read and review our following contract and initial each line when the pet owner has read, understood. and agreed to the information here within. Natural risks such as injury, disease, illness, death, property damage, and unforeseen incidents are possible. Dogs will play with one another with teeth and claws. Scratches, punctures, and hair loss are normal aftermaths of dog-to-dog activities. Over-exertion, exposure to heat and other natural elements, and diseases associated with physical activity are inherent. We also manage our play yards using noninvasive methods such as water spray bottles, time-outs, and temporary detainment (holding a collar) to help control our play environment and prevent altercations. You (the pet owner) give our staff and associates permission to use these proven methods on your dog at our discretion. Our boarding guests will be given one and a half hour breaks three times a day during meals and will be secured in their kennels overnight when not supervised. Dogs who are not eating may be given additives if allergies are not indicated by the owner. If you have questions, concerns, or comments please advise our management for clarification.

9. Matted Pets (Grooming Clients)

Pets with matted coats need extra attention during their grooming session. A “Dematting Fee'' ($15/30 Minutes) will apply to all matted pets. Mats left in a pet’s coat will only grow tighter. Heavy matting can also trap moisture near the pet's skin allowing mold, fungus, or bacteria to grow, causing skin irritations that existed prior to the grooming process. Mats can be very difficult to remove and may require the pet to be shaved. When necessary, removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts, or abrasions due to warts, moles or skin folds trapped in the mats. After effects of mat removal procedures can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations, abrasions, and hematomas to form a hematoma is a severe bruise caused by blood vessels bursting beneath the skin, causing a pocket of blood within the tissue.  Hematomas are commonly formed when severe matting is removed from the ears allowing blood flow to quickly return to the dog’s ears. Shaved pets are also prone to sunburn and should either have sunscreen applied daily or should be kept out of the sun until the hair grows sufficiently to protect the skin. In some cases, pets may also exhibit brief behavioral changes. Lucky Dog does not wish to cause serious or undue stress to your pet and will not continually de-mat your pet for you. Prevention is the best defense against matting by scheduling regular grooming appointments.

10. Fleas & Ticks (Grooming Clients)

If fleas and/or ticks are found on your pet during the grooming process, treatment to rid the pet of fleas and/or ticks is mandatory, and an additional charge will apply. This is not only to rid your pet of the unwanted pests, but to prevent them from transferring to other pets in the salon, as well as to avoid an infestation within the salon. We suggest keeping your pet on a monthly flea & tick treatment like Nexgard, Bravecto or Frontline.

11. Accidents (Grooming Clients)

There is always the possibility an accident could occur. Grooming equipment is sharp, even though we use extreme caution and care in all situations, possible problems could occur including cuts, nicks, scratches, quicking of nails, etc. In most cases this can happen when a pet is wiggling or moving around. Every effort will be made to ensure your pet is groomed as safely as possible. Lucky Dog Barks & Recreation will not be liable for any accidents that occur during the grooming process.

13. Aggressive Dogs

Dogs cannot be aggressive and must pass Lucky Dogs Barks & Recreation’s temperament test. Your dog may be separated from other dogs or asked to not return to Lucky Dogs Barks & Recreation if he/she exhibits aggressive or other unacceptable behavior. Such determinations will be made at the sole discretion of Lucky Dogs Barks & Recreation. Owners MUST inform Lucky Dog Barks & Recreation if your pet(s) may bite, have bitten, or shows signs of aggression towards people, other pets or during specific grooming procedures. Muzzles may be used if necessary during grooming procedures. Muzzling will not harm your pet, and protects both the pet and the groomer. A “Handling Fee” may be applied in addition to the regular grooming charge for aggressive or difficult to groom pets. Lucky Dog Barks & Recreation reserves the right to refuse/stop services for such pet(s) at any time before or during the grooming process. This is for the pet’s safety, as well as for the groomer’s safety.

12. Health & Senior Pets (Grooming Clients)

Grooming procedures can sometimes be stressful, especially for a senior pet or pet with health problems and can expose hidden medical problems or aggravate a current one during or after the groom. Because senior pets and pets with health problems have a greater chance of injury, these pets will be groomed for cleanliness and comfort, in styles that will not add to their stress. In the best interest of your pet this contract/agreement will give Lucky Dog Barks & Recreation permission to obtain immediate Veterinary treatment for your pet should it be deemed necessary. We will do our best to contact you first. It is agreed that all expenses for Veterinary care will be covered by the pet's owner.

14. Duty to Disclose

You must disclose, on a continuing basis, all medical or other conditions, including but not limited to, personality concerns or behavioral incidents that in, Lucky Dogs Barks & Recreation’s sole discretion, may affect, limit, or prevent your dog’s ability to participate in Lucky Dogs Barks & Recreation activity or services.
