What are the kennel sizes and options?
We have several kennel size options so to make things simple I have included the following table. Kennel size varies by width; all kennels are approximately 7 feet deep. Those kennels located on exterior walls have outside runs attached to the inside portion that is accessible via a doggie door (guillotine door), and are indicated by the +run notation. Need More Information...see our new Kennel Size Guide

|Deluxe + Run||48"||Yes||Yes||Yes||Standard||+++|
Can I bring my own food and toys?
While we only provide premium food to pets staying at the resort, you are always welcome to bring your own food. If you do, please bring it in a resealable container, along with a measuring cup. While we are unable to prepare specialty foods (e.g. raw) on site, should you individually wrap such meals we can certainly feed them. Additional fees may apply for additional services. Please contact us if you have specific questions about feeding issues.
Toys are great, in fact a special toy can make your pet's stay less stressful and more enjoyable. Please mark all toys with your pet's name. We will try to return all toys and bedding that you bring, but occasionally things do happen to these items and they have to be discarded during the stay. Do not bring any toys or items that are valuable.
Is there anyone at the facility during the evening?
One of the things we thought important for pet owners when traveling is knowing that someone is nearby your pet at all times. Therefore we have a late-evening caretaker, and video monitoring, which allows us to check on your pets throughout the night when we cannot be on site.
If I stay at a hotel on the Island, can I check my dog out for some playtime on the beach?
Absolutely, we can even give him/her a bath after playing in the surf.
What happens if there is a hurricane in the gulf?
During hurricane season we have contingencies in place to safely guard your pet during their stay. During the storm season we request that you provide us with a regional contact that will take your pet should a storm threaten us from the gulf.. In the event of a mandatory evacuation of the island, all pets not placed with other facilities or alternate custodians, will evacuate with the BVPR staff. There are a additional fees if your animal is boarded during a storm related event. Animals remaining at the facility in the event of a Shelter-in-Place situation will incur a daily hazard fee. In the event of an evacuation, a daily Animal Evacuation Fee will apply that is in addition to the daily regular fee.
