How much is daycare?
$32 for a full day. $21 for a half day. We do offer daycare packages as well. (Prices can be subject to change.)
What is considered a full day?
Anything over 5 hours from drop off time. Less than 5 hours is a half day.
Can I drop off at whatever time I want?
Drop off is anytime during normal business hours.
What time is pickup?
Pick up is up to 6pm. If you can not pick up by 6pm, your dog will stay overnight for boarding and be charged the $35 boarding fee.
Can they come whenever I want?
Generally most dogs have their set days each week. There is currently no reservation process required. If you plan on bringing your dog on a day that is not routine, we just ask that you contact us and confirm it will be ok.
How long are the dogs outside?
Our dogs have free play all day! They have access to inside and outside play.
Are the dogs ever in a crate?
Yes and no. While we do have free play all day, if a dog becomes overstimulated or needs a break for lunch, we will utilize our indoor kennels. Our inside kennels are not crates, more like 6 foot enclosures. Dogs that eat lunch will be in for at least an hour so they can have time to digest their food.
Are they housed together?
We have options for both groups and single accommodations when they are housed.
Are big dogs with smaller dogs?
Yes, groups are based on temperament and play style.
Are they supervised?
They are always supervised while playing. There is always at least 1 attendant in each group as well as others throughout the facility.
What happens on severe weather days?
We have accommodations for both inside and outside play so no matter what the weather is, everyone still gets to play. We have a/c and heated floors and rooms so they will always be comfortable no matter what the temperature is.
What are your yards like?
Our yards have artificial turf installed which allows us to keep the areas your dog plays clean and sanitary. We also have a 2000 square foot indoor space that is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Will you bathe them if they get dirty?
You may request a daycare bath for $25 before they go home, but we will need at least 90 minutes notice and are subject to availability.
Do I need to bring anything?
Just a leash (please no retractable leashes) and their collar. You are welcome to bring their lunch if they need it, or special treats. We have everything else here for their day.
Do you have live action cameras so I can watch my dog while there?
No we do not. Follow us on facebook for daily pictures though!
Can they have vaccines done while there for daycare?
No. We want to keep the day fun with no pokes. Vaccines especially should not be given during daycare in case a dog has reactions or becomes lethargic and snippy. Owners should be present as well during exams. You are welcome to make an appointment at the end of the daycare day but not before or during the day.
What if I don’t want vaccines, just something looked at that I am concerned about?
A dog with any concerns/issues/illness should never come to daycare. This is potentially dangerous for them and the other dogs. Please never bring a sick dog to daycare. You may bring them to dayboard for the day if they can not be home alone all day, but they will not go out in the group.
How long until my dog can start in the program?
The daycare supervisor will reach out to you when it is your dog’s turn to be assessed. Unfortunately we do not know when or how long that will be. All registrations are kept on file and gone through weekly, if not daily, when enrollments open up.
We do not take every application that comes in right away. We don’t believe in constantly putting new dogs into the group with our existing ones as it can be overwhelming and dangerous. This then makes the timing inconclusive. Some dogs might not fit and we excuse them from the program and go on to the next applicant. If a dog becomes a permanent member then that is one less spot available.
We value the safety of our dogs and our staff and do not want to take on more than our facility or team can support.
I only need one specific day a week; Can I just bring them without having to do the waitlist?
Unfortunately, no. They need to be accepted into the program as a whole right now since we do not have required reservations. Feel free to reach out to our kennel with any speicial requests or circumstances.
Can they do daycare while boarding?
If your dog is a regular daycare dog, they will play with daycare while boarding at no extra charge. Non-regular daycare dogs or veterinary clients can sign up for group play but will not be allowed to play in the general daycare population all day. There is no charge for this extra play as well.
How does their first day/assessment go?
We put your dog out into the yard by themself with staff members to play and get to know them. We then introduce one dog at a time. We evaluate as we keep slowly introducing new dogs and adjust. We then monitor throughout the day. Ideally a new dog will stay for a full day their first day. There is then a probationary period as not all dogs can be a pass/fail on their first day. It is a new environment and we give them time to acclimate and adjust. A report card will be sent home with them on how they did.
