FAQs

We’re so happy you’re considering us for your best friend’s needs! Before any dog can participate in training, daycare, or boarding they must pass an evaluation and have up-to-date vaccine records for Bordetella, Distemper, Rabies, and Influenza vaccines. You can upload you vaccine records and request an evaluation by

We require up-to-date vaccination records for Bordetella, Distemper, Rabies, and Influenza. These records must be uploaded through your profile and vaccination records must be current at the time of drop of for any dog to come into the facility.

All dogs over 1 year must be neutered/spayed for the safety of your dog, with no exceptions.

We welcome dogs of all ages and do our absolute best to keep them comfortable! We are always aware of each individual dog’s needs and pay attention to each of them carefully.

If your dog requires medications, we will administer them according to your instructions to the best of our ability.

We do require that all medication comes in its original packaging.

The two most important things to bring with your dog for boarding are food and medication. We require that food is in a resealable container, such as plastics bins or ziploc bags. We also require that medication comes in its original packaging. Please do not add medication to food, we can do that for you at the time of feeding if needed. If your dog does not have enough food, we can feed your dog our house food for $3 a bowl.

If you would like to bring in bedding and 1-2 toys with your dog for boarding, we will happily set these up in your dogs room.

An evaluation is how Queen City Canine will assess if your dog is a good fit for our facility. Our handlers will take the dog into a play yard and introduce them to a few dogs at the facility. We will assess how your dog does while meeting new dogs and interacting with them for 15-20 minutes. If the dog does well, they are encouraged to stay and play for a few hours (free of charge!) so that we can see them meet the rest of their play group.

We ask that owners plan to stay for 15-20 minutes during the evaluation. While the dog is being evaluated, owners are invited to take a tour of our facility and learn about our services.

The dogs at Queen City Canine are on an alternating schedule of playtime and rest time. All dogs will go out to play in their respective groups at 8:00 am each day. They will play for an hour, then come in to rest for an hour, then play again for an hour, etc. They will continue this schedule until 6:00 pm.

During inclement weather (e.g. heavy rain, high temperatures, storms, etc.) we will rotate the dogs in our temperature controlled, indoor play area.

We serve breakfast around 7 a.m. each morning after their first round of play time and we serve dinner at 4 p.m. If you are boarding two dogs together, we feed them separately unless you request otherwise. If your dog needs a slow-feeder, let us now at check in and we can provide one for you.

I love animals of all shapes and sizes. I have worked with dogs for seven years and have loved every minute of it! In our free time, you can find us at dog-friendly events around Charleston. I am also certified in pet CPR and first aid.

I love all animals, but I have always wanted to work with dogs and cats! In my free time, I love baking, painting, reading, and spending time with family/friends but I mostly love spending time with Coco!

Kerri is a lifelong dog lover and can’t imagine life without them! Her current “pack” consists of an old hound dog named Ward and a little black cat named Killakee, along with her son Roland. Together they all equally enjoy long walks in the neighborhood or a chill day at home playing video games. Kerri originates from our Coleman location in Mount Pleasant, where she has worked since 2013, and she has known many My Three Dogs regulars since they were puppies!
