• Pass our preliminary dog interview to evaluate their social skills and temperament (more info below). During this time you must complete and sign our New Client Form and present proof of current vaccinations. We require:
         • Bordetella - (Kennel Cough Prevention) - 6 month booster vs. 1 year recommended
         • Distemper - (DHPP/DAPP/DA2PP)
         • Rabies

  • Canine Influenza Vaccination as of 7/1/19 (Initially a 2 part dosage followed by annual booster)

• If your dog over 6 months of age or older, they must be nuetered/spayed. Unaltered dogs destabilize the pack, and would be at a risk of injury by other dogs.
• Your dog must be on an active Flea and Heartworm Control program.
• In order to make sure your dog is not at risk, they must be over 12 weeks old.
• If your dog has shown aggressive behavior towards other dogs and people, doggie daycare is not for them. Dogs who show aggressive behavior (food/toy/resource aggression) are more at risk of hurting others and getting hurt. Please don't bring them.
• Wear a flat collar and ID tag with current contact information (no prong/choke collars during playtime).

• Please enter and exit the facility on a leash to keep your dog safe in the lobby.

(Daycare drop off is cut off at noon Thursdays and Fridays)
