We strive to have a common-sense policy that allows guests to bring their dogs, while also protecting other guests and property. For a $12 per-night per-dog charge, owners can bring up to 2 dogs and accept responsibility to keep their dogs off furniture and beds, walk them on a leash, and leave them unattended only in a carrier. We also ask for a cell phone number in case of barking that disturbs other guests. Damages will incur extra charges. We gratefully expect owners to clean up any messes on the resort grounds — small trash bags are free and are available in the office.
Our $12 per-night per-dog charge is waived for guests who have a registered service dog and provide a service dog certification number prior to their arrival. *Missouri Senate Bill 644 modifies the definition of a “service dog” to be a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. A mental health service dog, or a psychiatric service dog, is a dog that has been individually trained for an owner who has a psychiatric disability, medical condition, or developmental disability. The dog is trained to perform tasks to mitigate or assist the owner with difficulties directly related to the disability.
*Under this act, any person knowingly misrepresenting a dog as a service dog, as described in the act, for the purposes of receiving accommodations regarding service dogs under the Americans with Disabilities Act shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor for the first offense and a Class B misdemeanor for each subsequent offense.
