Requirements and Other Important Information for Daycare Applicants

RULES AND REGULATIONS
All dogs must be on a leash attached to a securely fitting collar. Dogs must have a "regular" collar of leather or nylon in addition to any chain or training collar. All dog collars must have current identification attached. Please walk your dog prior to bringing him/her to daycare (this helps to keep our facility as clean as possible).

LUNCH FEEDING
Puppies up to 6 months of age that are on a 3 times a day feeding will only be fed dog food that you have provided. Please feed your dog before coming to daycare. Please allow at least 45 minutes for the food to digest before they begin playing.


APPLICATION PROCESS
The application forms must be completely filled out and submitted at the time of evaluation. Please call to schedule an evaluation with your pet. All vaccination and alteration records must be kept up to date at all times. Please send your vaccination records prior to the evaluation day. The initial enrollment fee is free but if you stop coming to daycare for more than 30 days and decide to come back there is a re-enrollment fee of $30.00. Your dog must be re-evaluated.

RESERVATIONS
Reservations are required for all daycare dogs. We require a minimum of 2 days per week. Scheduling your days of the week and length of package is required. Being on a schedule assures you a space for your dog on those days. If your dog will not be attending on a scheduled day, we need a minimum of 12 hour’s notice. No call, no show will result in being charged for the day. Sorry No exceptions and No refunds. If you need to bring your dog on a non-scheduled day please call to see if there is room available.

AGE
Pups over 16 weeks who have had all their vaccinations are welcome. All dogs over 8 months of age must be spayed or neutered.

VACCINATIONS
All vaccinations and updates are the responsibility of each dog owner. All dogs must have up to date vaccinations including Rabies, Distemper (DHLPP) and Bordetella (kennel cough) , Fecal test and Heartworm test. The Bordetella must be up to date and renewed every 6 months. Written proof of vaccinations and all updates are required. All dogs must be on a year round heartworm and flea & tick control prevention. We require that you hand in your empty flea and tick control packages monthly from March - November.

GENERAL HEALTH
All dogs must be in good health; owners will certify their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable disease within the last 30 days. Upon enrollment and re-admission all dogs must be free from any condition that could potentially jeopardize the health and safety of other dogs. No dog will be allowed to attend daycare with visible stitches or bandages.


BEHAVIOR
Dogs in daycare must not exhibit any aggressive behavior for any reason. Any dog exhibiting such behavior will be safely isolated from the rest of the daycare and will not be allowed re-admission until such behavior has been modified. We reserve the right to exclude dogs from daycare that pose a potential risk to the safety of our dogs and staff or if your dog is unhappy in our pack.


Please feed your dog before coming to daycare. You must provide food for puppies that need to be fed 3 times a day. Thank you
