    Does My Dog Need Any Vaccination?

    Yes, Bordetella, Distemper and Rabies are the only vaccinations we require.  Anything else, we always tell parents to confer with their dogs Veterinarian regarding the care and health of their dog.  Our parents are responsible for keeping their dogs records current with us.  Our system sends reminders to pet owners when the records of their dogs are about to or have already expired. We do not allow any dog to utilize any service until they are up-to-date with their vaccinations and are able to provide proof of their licensed veterinarian or breeder. We are not authorized to accept any other proof of vaccinations other than what is on the letterhead.
    List of required vaccinations:
    1.  Rabies
    2.  Bordetella
    3.  Distemper
    If your dog is not vaccinated, we will accept a Titer test report from your veterinarian.
    For any other vaccination or test required for your dog, we will rely on the professional opinion of your veterinarian.
    If your dog comes to our facility and we discover fleas or ticks, we will immediately treat it and charge your account accordingly. That is why all dogs should always take flea and tick medicine. 

    Are Dogs In Doggy Daycare Supervised?

    Our canine playgroups are always supervised by our coaches to ensure that playtime remains enjoyable and stress-free for all dogs involved. In case a dog behaves inappropriately towards others, they will be temporarily removed from the group for a quick time-out. However, they may rejoin the group again once they have calmed down and learned to play nicely with other dogs. We make sure that every playgroup has one team member to supervise 10-15 dogs. For larger playgroups, regardless of size, there should be at least two team members to ensure that every dog is properly supervised and cared for.

    Do You Accept Aggressive Dogs?

    Last May 2019, we   made the decision to stop accepting dogs we consider unsuitable for our dog daycare or these are dogs that are aggressive to either humans or other dogs. 

    This decision to uphold our mission and core values meant ensuring the safety and quality of care for all our furry friends as well as our team members. We know that these dogs act out because they don't feel comfortable at our facility for whatever reason.

    We promise transparency to all our clients which is why we evaluate our pet guests everyday. Our pets have good and bad days, just like you and me. That is why it is critical for us to check their temperament daily.

    Please understand that we do not discriminate in any way, shape or form. For the safety and security of our other guests, we will turn away dogs that show any signs of aggression.
