Second Dog Discount - 20% off 8 & 16 Day Packs available (with expiration dates) *Daycare reservations are required!*
Requirements 4 Months or older Up to date on all vaccines (DHLPP, Bordetella, Rabies) Dogs must be spayed or neutered by 6 months No Aggression Temperament Tests are required to participate in daycare: Temperament tests are scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday mornings on days the owners are available. Drop off on your first day must be before 8am so that your dog is one of the first dogs to arrive and meets everyone one-on-one. We require you to go to your online profile to sign our agreements before the temperament test. Please plan to spend 10-15 minutes chatting with staff, going over your application and what to expect for the day. The cost is $25 and includes the cost of daycare for the day. We require a minimum of 5 hours to allow your dog to adjust to daycare, but prefer they stay until 1pm so they stay a full five hours. They are welcome to stay all day if they are enjoying their stay. If their stay is not enjoyable, we will call you to pick up your dog early, so we will only schedule a test if you are available all day. We have three levels for our temperament test evaluations: PASS: No major issues. Should settle into our daycare routine after a few visits. NEEDS WORK: Some issues such as shyness, nervousness/fear, or obedience issues (does not listen/lack of impulse control). These dogs might adjust to our routine and settle in nicely over a few visits, but will require extra work to become acclimated. FAILED: Major issues such as aggression or extreme fear. Daycare is not a healthy environment for these dogs and alternatives such as training can be discussed.
