Can any dog come in for doggy daycare?
Since our daycare dogs interact in an all-day play environment, it's important for them to get along well with other pups. You're welcome to schedule a meet and greet ahead of his/her first daycare visit to see how well they interact with other dogs and people, but it is not required.
What do I need to bring for daycare?
This one is simple. Your dog! That is all you need to bring. Make sure they come with either a collar or harness on as well as their leash. Each pup has their own personal bin to help us keep track of their belongings while they are with us. Should your pup need fed during their time with us, please bring their food in a marked ziploc bag or plastic dish with lid.
To maintain our incredibly high safety standards and satisfaction ratings, we require your pup to be:
How does daycare benefit my dog?
The benefits of allowing your dog to attend dog daycare are very beneficial. Besides having fun, daycare has health benefits: exercise, socialization and a boost for the immune system. By having your dog burn off their energy at daycare helps with separation anxiety, loneliness, they stay fit, sleep better, and suffer fewer symptoms of stress. For most dogs, it teaches them invaluable social skills that will help them learn how to properly socialize with a variety of other dogs. It also helps puppies with their potty training by following other dogs in our outdoor play area. Hyperactive dogs are given a proper outlet for built up energy, and dogs needing to shed a few pounds can do so by playing all day.
Can I take a tour?
You sure can! We’d love to have you stop by and check out our facility. No need to call ahead or book an appointment—just stop by during our business hours. We’ll be happy to show you around and answer your questions.
Do you accept all breeds?
It is not our policy to turn away dogs based on breed and we welcome all dogs based on their ability to pass the meet & greet.
Can I bring my dog in at anytime for his evaluation?
We conduct evaluations by appointment preferably between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. as we do not have as heavy an influx of traffic in-and-out of the building during that time. We want to be able to devote our time to you and answer any questions you have regarding our services. Before 10 am and after 3:30 pm we tend to be very busy with drop offs and pick-ups. Most evaluations will include a tour of our facility.
What about nap time?
Believe it or not, in the middle of the day some of the dogs are laying down enjoying group nap time together. If we find that a dog will benefit from a private nap, then we make accommodations for them.
My dog is small - will he be separated from the big dogs?
We group our dogs in separate play areas based on each dog's personality and temperament. There are some small dogs that enjoy the larger dogs and vice versa. All of the dogs that come here have to be nice whether they are big or little. We find that dogs rarely look at each other in relation to size, but more so to their ability to communicate and interact appropriately using good dog manners.
Can I drop my dog off at daycare whenever I want?
We are happy to have you bring your dog when it is convenient for you; however, we do require reservations, so please call, email, or text if your dog is not already on our schedule for Daycare. If we are unable to answer your phone call, please leave a message and we will return your call promptly. Having an accurate attendance count allows us to plan for our day and to be sure we have the recommended number of dog handlers.
Can I call and check on my dog while he’s there?
Of course, and we encourage you to do so! We know that being apart is difficult for both of you. You may call, email, Facebook message, or text and check in on your dog as often as you wish.
VIP’s! (Very Important Pawz)
We highly recommend regular daycare stays for your furry friend for the following reasons:
If your dog will be unable to attend on their reserved day, please call, email or text us with as much notification as you can. We understand last minute situations arise. We often have a wait list and appreciate being able to call another dog so they can come attend in your dog’s place.
