Dog daycare gives your dog a chance to do dog stuff all day, while you are off doing human stuff. It allows your dog to get the proper physical exercise and mental stimulation they need to maintain good health. Daycare is a chance for our members to socialize and play with other dogs in a structured environment. We have a daily schedule that includes playtime, games, socialization and naps. Our members are constantly supervised and inappropriate play is stopped while good behavior is rewarded. We keep our members safe, clean and well cared for.
This really depends on your dogs personality and need for exercise and interaction. The more your dog comes to club, the better our staff and the other members can form a bond. Our main concern is that your dog comes often enough to establish those relationships. We recommend at least once a week at minimum.
Most of our members are about 40 pounds and under and are grouped by temperament. Members who are more low key get to hang together, while active members can play freely. Our members are separated into groups that are consistent with both their size and activity level.
An assessment is important for all of our members. It helps us determine if your dog is a fit for daycare and staying with us overnight. For the safety and well being of all our members it is required that all dogs go through this screening process. This gives our staff an assessment as to whether or not your dog will enjoy participating in the daycare process and want to be made aware of any aggressive or antisocial behaviors. Our pet parents want to know that their dog is safe, and having fun with other non aggressive dogs.
As we are a cage free facility, we need to ensure that your dog will be comfortable this environment. If your dog enjoys a day at daycare, most likely they will enjoy spending the night with us. Please note: a trial night will be required if your dog’s first overnight stay falls during a busy holiday period.
Generally, our members sleep together in the lower lounge which provides an assortment of resting spots, bunkbeds, dog beds and crates, if needed. A trained staff companion will sleep along side your dog. We’re happy to have your dog sleep on his or her bed when they’re with us if it makes them feel more comfortable.
In the event that your pet requires medical attention, we will refer to your contact list and make every attempt to reach you or your designated emergency contact. If we are unable to contact you or your emergency contact and we feel your dog needs medical attention, we will transport your pet to their regular veterinarian, if close by, to ensure continuity of care. If your veterinarian is not near our facility, we will go to one of the local veterinarians that we know. If we believe that the situation is urgent or if your dog needs care after regular hours, we will take your pet to the closest veterinary emergency clinic.
