What You Should Bring with Your Pet

Help us make your pet’s daycare experience great. Please bring the following items when you drop them off:

  • Their food, which should be stored in a sealed container or Ziploc bag. Make sure to write your pet’s name on the container in permanent marker and include feeding instructions.
  • A toy your pet loves—but no bedding or blankets, please!
  • Their medications, which should come in their original containers and include clear instructions for dispensation.

* In the wake of COVID-19, at this time we are not allowing any personal items to be brought along with your pet to daycare, for the saftey of you and our team. We are also only accepting food if your pet is on a medical diet. Thank you for your understanding during this time!

Dog Daycare Prerequisites

Before you can enroll your pet into our daycare program, we will need for them to undergo a temperament assessment at least a week in advance of their first visit. We want all of our guests to have fun and feel secure during their time with us, and we understand that some dogs do not socialize as well as others. Keeping your dog and others safe is our foremost responsibility.

Additionally, we need pets to be healthy. Our health requirements include:

  • Up-to-date rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, and H3N2/H3N8 influenza vaccines
  • Negative for intestinal parasites (tested within last 6 months)
  • Spayed or neutered if they’re older than 6 months of age
