Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations: Rabies within 3 years, DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus), and Bordetella every 6 months. For playcare dogs must be spayed or neutered.
Dogs must be on flea and heart worm prevention.
Dogs must wear a nylon or leather collar with name and current rabies tag. Other collars and harnesses are hazardous within the play group.
LODGING SCHEDULE AND PROCEDURES
Bring dogs in any time during our public hours 7:30 am-6 pm during the week, but we suggest an early drop off so that dogs have time to play before dinner. Saturday pick-up and drop-off is from 9am-5pm, and there is no Sunday pick-up or drop-off.
We feed meals twice a day: prior to morning playtime, and evening (around 6 pm). Bringing your own food is strongly suggested. However, we are happy to feed our food for an additional fee. Label food with the dog's name and feeding instructions.
Outside Playtime is from one hour after breakfast until 1 pm, then from 2 -5 pm. Mandatory nap time is from 1-2 pm. Playtimes may vary during inclement weather.
We give oral medications to your dogs at no extra cost. Bring medications in a clearly marked container with the following information: dog's name, name of medication, dosage per day or as needed and the reason for the medication.
You do not need to bring anything else for your dog as we provide raised beds and blankets, towels, food dishes, We don't allow rawhide chews or cooked bones. You may bring toys if you are requesting your dog to be kenneled at night, but they are not allowed in the play areas, and we are not responsible if they are lost or eaten. Label anything you do bring with the dog's name.
Fees range from $30 a day for a small dog to $36 for a dog over 100 pounds. See rates.
There are discounts for multiple dogs in the same family.
A deposit of 50% of the lodging fees is required at drop off for stays of more than a week.
No shows will be charged 25% of the lodging fee. We are often full, full, full!
