Our Daycare Is About Quality Play Time Mixed With Necessary Rest Time
Our requirements are a bit different than other places.
We don’t believe in large groups ever.
While clearly many dogs do fine, as you can see from other facilities in the area having upwards of 40-60 dogs at a time in daycare - we know it’s only a matter of time before you see behavior problems arise from this. For this reason we do small groups of typically 2-3 at a time and we rotate all day. You can read more about why we do this under our protocol here.
We also don’t do traditional trial days, or require your dog be spayed or neutered.
More and more research is coming out suggesting maybe we were wrong to spay and neuter so early. It also statistically hasn’t done much if any to help our overpopulation problem. We feel natural is best unless you see a problem so we leave it up to the owner to decide if they want to keep their dog intact or not. If we see a problem in daycare arising from it, we will assess and let you know if we think it’s a problem related to that.
As for trial days, we just want you to begin coming! We don’t feel it’s fair to judge a dog after a couple of hours. Often it takes multiple days for them to fully get used to the routine and environment, and be their best selves. Unless your dog has a known aggression issues with other dogs. Shyness or mild fear is fine, we will ease them into it. We absolutely do need to know if your dog has ever been in a fight and what the circumstances were. If you aren’t sure then we highly recommend you do training with us prior to coming to daycare.
Daycare pick up and drop off is anytime during our normal open hours.
