So you’re thinking about bringing your pup in for daycare? What an excellent decision! Pups can benefit from daycare in many different ways! With that being said, it isn’t always the best environment for all pups, and because of this, we offer our evaluation day free of charge! This is to be sure that your pup feels comfortable in the daycare environment and will enjoy their time with us! If they’re not suited for the daycare environment, we do offer other options to help you under our “Additional Services” tab that you’re welcome to check out!
We accept pups at 10 weeks of age or after their second round of puppy shots! Records from your vet are required, regardless of age! Socialization is beneficial for puppies and dogs of all ages!
What does a daycare day look like for my pup?
Your pup will have open play with it’s group from the time it’s dropped off until around 12 or 1 PM! We stay outside as much as possible during the morning open play sessions! (Weather permitting!) That’s quite a bit of play time! To ensure they don’t get overly exhausted, everyone gets a designated hour for down time. From 12 PM – 2 PM, we rotate groups out putting them up for a 1 hour nap/rest time. We offer stuff Kongs that you can add onto your pup’s day if you would like them to have one during this time! It’s $5 per Kong! After their nap time, pups go back into their groups and go out for a potty break! During this time, we work with them on group sits, sit-stays, name recall, etc. as well as allowing open play until they’re picked up to go home! Please note that we are not a “training” facility, these exercises are just to give them brain stimulation, and to help them learn commands that help our staff handle the groups during daycare!
During summer/warmer months, we always have plastic kiddie pools and sprinklers during daycare hours. Please let us know if you prefer that your pup doesn’t get wet!
