Our Commitment: Animal Kingdom Pet Resort commits to provide a clean, safe, fun, friendly, and interactive environment for your pet. All staff commit to maintaining premises that are sanitary and properly enclosed. All pets in our care will be fed properly, exercised properly and will be housed in clean, safe quarters at all times. Our daycare groups and private play will be properly staffed and monitored at all times to ensure safe play. Our knowledgeable staff takes pride in providing exceptional care to you and your pets to create a wonderful, worry-free experience for all.
Your Commitment: We ask, from you the owner, to read all of the following information and follow all guidelines to help us maintain our exceptional level of service and care.
All pets should be on a leash at all times when entering and exiting the facility and while on our property. We strongly advise against the use of retractable leashes in these circumstances and ask that your pet remain under your control and no further than 6 feet from your side at all times.
All pets must be wearing a collar that can remain on them for their stay with us. All harnesses and training items will be removed after they are escorted to daycare or their suite and placed in their personal cubby.
Owners are responsible for their pet’s behavior in the lobby and outside of our facility. Please do not allow your dog to meet or jump on another dog or person, as pet may be excited, nervous or anxious at this time and may react abnormally. Please keep your pet under your control to ensure the safety and comfort of other dogs and people in the lobby. Do not allow pets to jump on or scratch at doors, walls or desk. Dogs are expected to sit and wait until staff is able to take them to the daycare or boarding area. AKPR works with your dogs during daycare and boarding on these manners, please reinforce the same manners in your presence to achieve success. Please refrain from opening a door too soon and remain calm as to not create separation anxiety or unwanted behaviors in your pet at pick up.
Evaluations are required for all new dogs and those who have not been for a visit with us in over 12 months. Evaluations are reserved with a non-refundable payment of $25 and appointments are available Monday through Friday. Drop off is between 7am-9am and pick up is between 3pm-5pm. This gives a chance for the dogs to get to know us, our facility and our routine. If testing for daycare, they will get time to get acclimated with the play group and find the best fit for them. If participating in private play, they will get time to get acclimated with staff and find the best fit for entertaining them. All evaluations will have time in our suites to get acclimated and comfortable. Staff are constantly evaluating all dogs for any issues with aggression, severe anxiety, severe fearfulness, destruction, excessive barking or any other behaviors that are not a fit for our facility. A report card as well as verbal explanation of their evaluation will be given as feedback to help relieve any concerns. All modifications to evaluation appointments, must be done prior to 24 hours of reserved date and must be rescheduled at time of modification.
All pets must be in good general health and AKPR will be informed of any medical conditions. Pet has not been exposed to any contagious diseases within a 30-day period prior to check-in. If at any point pet is exposed or shows signs of communicable disease owner agrees to hold pet out of attending AKPR, until receiving veterinary clearance. Please note puppies, anxious pets and older pets can be exposed to a great deal of stress due to removal from their normal home environment, this can compromise the immune system resulting in illness. AKPR may require special arrangements to help these pets and ask that owners take all precautions necessary to alleviate any added stress.
In the event medical attention is required, AKPR will make all efforts to contact the owners regarding any treatments, illness, injury or potential problems. Staff and owner will agree on treatment or action necessary. If contact can not be made or injury is deemed an emergency, we reserve the right to appropriately treat or seek veterinary treatment for the pet at the owners expense.
Vaccine records, heartworm prevention, flea prevention and all information given about pet is accurate and true. Heartworm and Flea prevention has been given prior to check in and pet will be sufficiently covered through check out. If fleas or worms are found, treatment will be required immediately, at owners expense.
AKPR does not accept dogs who are feral, aggressive or who have had aggression issues in their history. Aggressive can best be described as an unprovoked attempt to cause harm to any person or dog. This puts staff, clients and other dogs in danger. Severe fearfulness or severe anxiety can turn aggressive/defensive in an unfamiliar place or a loud and busy environment such as a boarding facility. We do not discriminate against breeds, but will evaluate ALL dogs carefully to ensure everyones safety. AKPR reserves the right to deny services to any pet that is deemed not a good fit for our facility.
Reservations are required for all services. Owner agrees to pay the rate, for boarding or daycare, in effect the date the pet is checked in and for all days reserved. Owner agrees to pay for all costs and charges for any special services rendered and all veterinary costs for the pet during the time pet is in the care of AKPR.

Any pet needing to be fed separately or be supervised while eating will need to be boarded separately. Family suites are available for those that like to be boarded together but need separate arrangements for feeding time. Access doors on family suites allow pets to share their suites with each other while allowing staff the ability to close as needed separating each into their own suite.
Personal belongings brought from home are asked to be kept to a minimum. We do not allow beds to be brought from home. Comforters are provided in all suites, but a Kuranda Bed can be added to your pets suite for $5/night for those wanting additional padding. One blanket, one chew bone and one toy are permitted per dog during overnight care. Please make sure that these are items that are safe for your pet to have while unsupervised and they are not likely to ingest unsafe items during their stay.

This is a complimentary bath and time may not permit for all dogs to be bathed on departure date. Staff reserves the right to deny a complimentary bath due to, but not limited to, size, hair condition and behavior during bath. If you would like your pet to be bathed in a particular shampoo, brushed out, trimmed or any other additional services, grooming services will need to be requested.
Daycare attendance is based on appropriate behavior. Dogs do play with their teeth, nails and other body parts that can cause scratches, cuts and sores. Dogs can play rough and no matter how closely they are watched accidents can happen and dogs can get hurt. Most of the time medical attention is not required. In the event medical attention is required, please see above for procedure. AKPR reserves the right to excuse any pet from our play groups that is deemed not a good fit for the facility. In the event that a dog displays aggressive behavior the dog will be removed from the daycare. The owner will be notified of the event and any injuries to or caused by the pet. This includes behavior directed at the staff and any damages done to the facility. Owner is financially responsible for any and all types of damage by said pet. Future attendance will be reviewed on a case by case basis prior to return.
Our first priority is the safety, health and well-being of all of our guests. Every staff member is trained to recognize inappropriate body language and behavior to help minimize negative interaction, but dogs can be unpredictable. Dogs can have bad days or become annoyed and display undesirable behaviors during group play. Dogs are not left unattended and staff takes proactive measures in order to prevent issues and create a safe interactive environment. Please notify us of any changes noticed in your pets behavior as soon as possible to keep staff well informed.
All remaining balances shall be paid in full at check in at the latest. Any additional charges incurred during the stay shall be made payable with a credit card on file prior to pick up of pet. Every customer must have a credit card on file, which will be charged in the event additional charges are incurred while the pet is in our care and for balances owed after the time of check out. Any balances, after cancellation fees are applied, will remain as a credit on your account for future services.
