Doggy Daycare Policies

Your Pet's Safety is Important!

In order to provide a fun as well as safe environment for all of our daycare guests, all dogs must meet the following criteria:

  • Up to Date on Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus, and Bordetella Vaccinations
  • At least 16 weeks of age
  • Altered (spayed/neutered) if over 6 months of age
  • Consistently be on an oral flea medication
  • Successfully completed temperament testing

A few other reminders…

Please feed your dog before you drop off. This allows everyone to enjoy their play date without possessive behavior. If you would like a lunch or snack given, please let the staff know and we’ll kennel up for feeding time.

For identification and safety reasons, all dogs should wear a quick snap collar, preferably with their name and a phone number embroidered. If needed, please ask for an order form!

Treats, toys, and bedding can all stay home! Your pet will be plenty busy interacting with all their daycare friends. To keep it fair, as well as preventing lost or stolen items, we will provide these little extras for your pet while here.

Just like sending your kids to school, our daycare pets are subject to viruses. We do our best to recognize and isolate any dogs feeling under the weather. If your hound is feeling down, please keep them home for the day! We will let you know if your playful pooch has come into contact with any dog that’s feeling less than their best.
