IT'S THE LAW
AND OUR POLICY
All dogs on the premises must be leashed at all times. NO
EXCEPTIONS. It is also important that the leash be attached
to a properly fitted collar. A flat collar must fit snug
around the dog’s neck. You should be able to place
only two fingers between your dog’s neck and collar.
The collar must not be so loose that it pulls over your
dog’s head. It is also important that the collar contain
your dog’s tags.
Michigan State Law
requires that your dog be licensed and that his current
tags be securely attached to the collar, which …“shall
at all times be kept on the dog for which the license is
issued, except when such dog is engaged in lawful hunting
accompanied by its owner or custodian.”
Under no circumstances shall your dog’s tags be attached
to a training collar (i.e., a choke chain or a pinch collar)
while being boarded. For safety reasons, training collars
are routinely removed from all dogs when they are placed
into the kennel run. It is your responsibility to present
your dog to us with his/her tags securely attached to a
properly fitted flat collar.
