Also a reminder to make sure you have your dog's PA State Dog License on his/her collar. If the State Dog Law comes to inspect Oscar's Pet Resort and your dog does not have his/her license attached to his/her collar, you will be fined $75.00 per dog. www.PaDogLicense.com.
FOR OUR DAYCAMPER PARENTS:
PLEASE fill out a weekly daycare schedule at the end of every week and give this to the front desk staff. This is due to the high number of daycare dogs and the office area being very busy. Even if your dog comes the same day, every week, you MUST fill out a form. We DO NOT want to miss scheduling your dog, as we do have to cap certain days to a specific number of dogs. If you arrive with your dog and he/she is not on the schedule, he/she may not be able to stay and play depending on how many dogs that are here that day. This is only meant for the safety of your dog, as well as for our Pet Technician's running the play groups.
THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING US TO CARE FOR YOUR PETS!
