Basic Requirements of Daycare

What we need from you before we can schedule a trial date:

  1. A current vaccination record of your dog including rabies, DHLP-parvo, and especially bordetella (aka 'kennel cough') as well as a negative fecal exam administered within the last 6 months: all have to be up to date. No puppies taken until their second round of shots has been administered.

  2. Dog must be spayed or neutered with the only exception being puppies before the age of 6 months.  Minimum age is 4 months.

  3. Daycare agreement must be filled out and signed.

  4. The first day of daycare (at full price) is a trial day where we can observe the dog to see how they interact with the rest of the pack and if this is the right environment for them. Payment in advance is required to reserve your spot for a trial day. We will report back at the end of the day and if all goes well a regular schedule can be set up.

  5. Food may be brought if you would like your dog to eat a snack or lunch while they are at daycare, but please NO personal toys. We cannot guarantee that they will come back in original condition. Same with coats, sweaters etc.
