* Guests wishing to bring a dog must have prior approval.

OFF LEASH DOG PARK INFO
There's an off-leash dog park just outside of town, located next to Buck Park on Mt. Baker Road. (Former dog park was located near the airport, but is no longer in use.)
Great pet shop in town for toys, treats and other pet supplies. Site: http://www.pawkis.com
PET SUPPLIES, FOR YOUR USE
Dog Beds (large and small)
Dog food dishes & outside water bowls
- Cable runner (red and yellow cables in front @ Bracken Fern), leash only @ Rosario
WE ASK THIS OF YOU:
- Sofa Covers are found in the Wood Chest in the Living Room @ Bracken Fern and in the hall closet @ Rosario.
Old sheets in the Master closet - look for the bag labeled "For the Dogs" can be used on top of bedding/furnishings to help protect.
TAKE CARE OF ACCIDENTS
Accidents happen, we understand. Please use the cleaner for pet accidents (found above the washing machine in the cabinet).
Before departure, make a note of where the accident happened & housekeeping can spot treat with a neutralizer.
WE REQUIRE THIS OF YOU:
PICK UP WASTE
You must pick up and properly dispose of all waste from your dogs on the property.
Back up Doggie-doo bags are often located in the first drawer near the front door @ Bracken Fern and in the kitchen island drawer @ Rosario, but please bring your personal supply.
DO NOT LEAVE DOGS UNATTENDED
Dogs should not be left unattended for any amount of time inside or outside the home.
Ask us about quality pet care during your stay, we have recommendations that could be hired.
UNDERSTANDING NOISE ORDINANCE
Barking/Loud Dogs: We're in a residential neighborhood. There are ordinances on noise (both people and pets) so please be aware if you have a dog that barks excessively.
IMPORTANT NOTE: CLEANING
Our goal is to deliver a 5-star experience for each guest staying with us. Since there are only a few hours between departing and arriving guests, we need your help in making sure we can meet that goal. If you have dog(s) with you during your stay, please:
- Properly wash and dry sofa covers and bed covers used by pets
- Properly wash and dry pet dishes used
- Clean up after shedding dogs (vacuum can be found in office closet if you'd like)
- Ensure all pet waste is picked up and disposed of properly
Additional cleaning needed due to pets could result in additional cleaning fees. Completing the above will help in avoiding additional fees, and will help our next guest begin their stay on-time.
Thanks so much for your help, understanding, and cooperation! We hope you and your furry friends have an amazing time on the island!
