It seems we collect dogs here at the farm, and I swear that is not our goal…mostly. 🙂
This is Beckett. He will be the newest member of our permanent residents living in the Kennel, keeping Juda company. Beckett is a long time boarder here at Bifrost Farms and his dad is very ill. We told him once that if anything ever happens and he needs to make arrangements for Beckett, he would always have a home here. He’s a very sweet, half-blind old hunting dog who just wants a nice warm place to rest his bones these days. Well, unfortunately, that time has come and Beckett will live out his days lazing around on his raised bed in his own private run at the Farm.
Believe it or not, the reservation book is getting a workout for June already! Yay! That means if you’re planning a vacation and can’t take your dog, don’t wait until the last minute to book reservations with us.
All first time boarders must complete a questionnaire found on our boarding page. We require only the government regulated rabies vaccinations for our boarders.
If you’d like to know more about why we don’t require all vaccinations, this is a good article to read by Jan Rasmusen who also has a very good blog about outdated and mis-information regarding dog health called Truth4Dogs.
“From Dr. Eric Barchas, Dogster Vet Blog, “I generally do not recommend kennel cough vaccines unless dogs are staying in a boarding facility that requires them (and even then I don’t truly recommend vaccination — instead, I recommend finding a facility that doesn’t require them).”
