Reservations: We require reservations due to the limited number of reserved spaces available in daycare. Please cancel your reserved spot if you are unable to use it.


Behavior: All dogs must be non-aggressive and non-protective of food or toys while in daycare. Owners will certify their dogs have not harmed or shown any aggressive or threatening behavior towards any person or any other dogs. Please remember that your pet will be spending time with other pets and the safety and health of the pack is our main concern. Also, dogs who hump excessively, bark excessively, bare teeth, snarl, growl, potty inside, or who exhibit other non-friendly/nervous behavior may be turned away from service. Dogs play with their mouths and feet, scratches and marks are inevitable..


Drop-Off/Pick-Up: A late check-out fee of $15.00 will apply if picked up late. The Owner must provide advanced authorization to allow anyone else to pick up their dog.


Treats: We provide our guests with treats throughout the day - Please let us know, in advance, if you do NOT want your dog to have any treats. PLEASE INFORM US IF YOUR DOG IS ALLERGIC TO CERTAIN TYPES OF FOOD/TREATS.


Health: All dogs must be clean and in good health (no coughing, vomiting, diarrhea forty-eight (48) hours prior to arrival), and must not have fleas (we require that your dog receive some form of flea treatment plan - please consult your veterinarian for more information about flea treatment options). Owners will certify that their dogs are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last thirty (30) days. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last thirty (30) days will require a veterinary certificate of health to be admitted or re-admitted. Any dog with diarrhea will be removed from daycare and will not be able to socialize with the other dogs until the problem has been resolved. Dogs with excessive diarrhea will be required to have a negative fecal and/or giardia test before being re-admitted to daycare.
