Frequently Asked Questions
What experience do you have caring for dogs?
We have had 25 years with English Bulldog rescue. Currently, we have one English Bulldog, Twilight, who adopted us back. He is the sweetest, gentlest soul on the Planet. So we have a companion for your dog...and a family who loves dogs. We have experience with behavioral issues, male dogs marking their territory on everything in the house, nothing is likely to bother us...and we will handle it all with calm, steady responses. Dogs are always nervous when you leave and we let them get used to the humans before introducing them to any other dogs.
What is it like at Universal Dog Care Orlando?
It is like your house, but with our furniture. Nothing fancy, although we have tile floors throughout the house so that we don't have to worry about hair or stains and it makes cleaning much easier. We have professional cleaners who keep the place spick and span.
What will my dog do all day?
Your dog will be in our home, with our family, following us around from room to room, sitting on our bed while we do our Zoom work or school, and go to our yard with our family. In short, they will be one of our family, in our home and our beds and on our furniture. Your dog will play with indoor toys, go out into the fully-fenced backyard to run and play, or lounge on the outdoor patio. Your dog will be very active during their stay with us and it is not uncommon for pets to sleep more than normal after their fun play-cation at Universal Dog Care Orlando.
What are your hours of operation?
Check-in is between 8 am and 8 pm unless special arrangements are made. When you schedule your dog's care by texting Universal Dog Care Orlando at (407) 490-4153, you will choose your check-in time. Boarding is 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with checkout before 9 am the morning following your dog's care, with special accommodations made based on your needs.
What options do you have for care?
We have flexible booking options, from all-day, to overnight boarding. You just choose the care you need...and schedule your check-in time. We do the rest. You will receive pictures and videos throughout the day.
How do I book a reservation?
Universal Dog Care Orlando asks that you text us at (407) 490-4153. We individually book your appointment.
How do you do feedings?
Universal Dog Care Orlando recommends that you bring your own food in pre-measured and pre-marked Ziplock baggies to maintain your pet's normal diet. This also helps prevent over or under-feeding. However, if you forget to bring food, we do provide raw, freshly made food as our premium house food for an extra fee based on the size of the dog.
Should I bring my dog's toys or bedding?
To ensure a flea and tick-free environment, we ask that you do not bring any bedding, fabrics, or toys. We provide all dogs with a Deluxe Dog Bed and a fresh blanket at no additional charge. We have over 100 toys for inside and outside to play with. We do not want to get your toys confused with ours.
What is the minimum age for boarding a puppy?
The youngest age we will accept is a 10-week-old puppy, due to them needing their mother's warmth and milk before this age. If the mother is being boarded as well, we would make an exception. We just want the welfare of the puppy to be taken care of.
Do you have any restrictions on dog care or boarding?
For the safety of your pet and other dogs at Universal Dog Care Orlando, we do not accept dogs in heat, dogs that have been coughing within the last week, dogs that have open wounds or stitches, dogs that are recovering from surgery, dogs that have contagious diseases, or dogs who are aggressive to dogs or people.
Can you administer medications?
Yes, we are trained to administer medications. However, unfortunately, we no longer accept insulin-dependent pets. If you have a senior pet, please inform an associate and we will gladly accommodate their needs and follow your veterinarians instructions. All prescription medications must be presented in the original medication bottle.
Post Surgery Guests: To reduce the risk of complications post-surgery, we will not accept any pet with non-dissolvable staples or stitches. Any pets with dissolvable stitches must be at least 2 weeks post-operation.
What is your cancellation policy?
If your plans have changed, we ask that you please give us a courtesy text so we can allow availability for another dog to be taken care of. We impose a $25 per booking cancellation fee.
