Daycare

Why Daycare For Dogs?

The purpose of dog daycare is to provide stimulation, exercise, and socialization for your pet. Your dog’s personality can be strongly influenced by the amount of physical and mental stimulation he or she receives on a daily basis.

The daycare session also includes a nap time mid-day, which is always well needed.  They play with their canine buddies in playgroups according to their size and/or temperment, or we may accommodate them as they feel most comfortable. They play with the staff of The Dog House in a safe and supervised environment.  Your dog can enjoy the warm sun while they play in the pools all summer, or just relax with plenty of shade.  In the winter we have large indoor play areas with artificial grass as well.  The Dog House has controlled temperatures inside the building for the dogs, as well as a very clean environment with circulated air.

Screening:

We do not need to meet your dog prior to their first visit.  We accept all breeds, however, we do reserve the right to exclude certain dogs based on temperament for the safety of themselves as well as the other dogs.  We do not have an age restriction.  We just require puppies to have Bordetella and Distemper current for their age.  We require them to have Rabies when they reach 4 months.  Dogs must be people friendly. Proof of Distemper, Rabies and Bordetella vaccines must be current and on file in order to submit your reservation.  Due to privacy policies of veterinary clinics, we can not call your vet for you to obtain these records.

Non-neutered males over 6 months and female dogs in heat are not accepted.

Cancellation/Extension Policy:

Cancellations must be made no later than the morning of your dog’s check-in date.  If you do not cancel by then and we are at capacity, you will be charged for your dog’s stay when you check your dog in on their next stay.  If you have a punchcard, we will take a punch for any no shows.  If you need to add a night to the beginning of an existing reservation or your dog stays an extra night when we are at capacity, there will be a $25 fee in addition to the regular over night fee.
