Daycare Policies


How do we get started with dog daycare?
All dogs are interviewed before starting daycare. We set up a new dog appointment and you bring:
Dog(s) (preferably yours)
From your Veterinarian:
Dates of last Rabies and Distemper/Parvo vaccines
Date & result of fecal exam (must be negative and within 6 months)
Proof of spay or neuter
License number
Emergency Contact: Someone other than you or your partner who we would call if you don't come to pick up your dog.

The Fun Begins
Once all the paperwork is filled out the fun begins. We spend a few minutes with your dog to make sure she is friendly and feels comfortable with us. Then we head to the dog play room where all the other dogs are waiting patiently (or not) behind the gate to meet their new friend. We take your dog out and show him where he should potty and give him a chance to sniff around. Based on how they react, we pick 1 playmate to introduce him to, then we pick another and another, until all the dogs are together.

We have had several dogs that are particularly shy or haven’t been around many other dogs. If your dog seems concerned we may repeat the new dog appointment process. There is no fee for the 1st interview, but additional ones are $5 each.

The first day of daycare needs to be within a week of your new dog appointment; we want the experience to be fresh in their mind. Plan to arrive at 7:30 a.m. and to pick up your pup early in the afternoon.


Play Dates
All the dogs have a regular schedule and must attend regularly. The minimum commitment is ½ a day once a week. We require 24 hours notice for cancellations. Since dogs can arrive between 7:30 and 11:59 am, we will use 8 am the day before as the cutoff time for all cancellations. If you fail to cancel in time you will be charged for the day. If you or your pet is ill or the weather is bad, we will make an exception for those who call before 8:00 a.m. the same day.

The diagram below outlines how we track days that are missed when proper notice is given. It resets each calendar year. We have found this to be an effective way to keep our prices reasonable and encourage regular attendance. Once you miss 4 days, you will be charged for the 5th. If you miss 3 more you will pay for the next one and so on.
