Here is a list of frequently asked questions. Did we miss your question? Don’t worry! We are happy to help – call us today!
Can I bring my dog to daycare?
Yes! Prior to a dog’s first day of daycare, we require a brief evaluation of your dog. The evaluation process is just to ensure your dog is dog friendly and will get along with the other daycare dogs. We always have an open room so we can see your dog interact off leash with one or two other dogs before bringing them into the main room. The whole process should take about 10-15 minutes. We also require all dogs to be up to date on their vaccines and spayed or neutered by the time they are 7 months old.
Do you have any breed restrictions?
No, all dog breeds are welcomed at Doggie Dayz! As long as your dog is dog friendly, they are welcome here!
How often do I need to bring my dog to daycare?
Once your dog passes an evaluation they are free to come anytime during our business hours. Our packages never expire, so once you buy a package you can use the days as frequently as you’d like.
What do the dogs do all day?
The dogs have constant run of our two open play areas, separated by size. We also have a third room available if dogs need to be moved or aren’t being as active as some of the other dogs. Along with the open play time, we also walk the dogs twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. All dogs are walked with another dog and we double leash the dogs to ensure their safety on the walks.
Will my dog be crated or separated at all during the day?
Your dog will enjoy the benefits of our Doggie Dayz open facility without crates or kennels. We have three separate rooms on the premises: one for big dogs, one for small dogs, and one for new evaluations or cooling off if a dog needs a rest away from other dogs. Your dog will love the opportunity to play or rest throughout the day in a big open space.
What happens if my dog becomes ill at daycare?
We will do our best to treat any wounds or illness while calling the owner from the information provided on your daycare application. If the wound or illness is serious we will take them to the vet you have chosen to put on the application. We do ask that if your dog is sick that you keep them home from daycare.
What are the benefits of bringing my dog to daycare?
There are so many! Dogs that go to daycare become socialized with other dogs and people, making them nicer pets for you and the public. They also get tired out! With all of the playing and walking, they will usually fall asleep on the way home. If you have a rambunctious puppy or dog you can be sure that they will be tired when they leave daycare. Daycare is also good for people who may not want to leave their dog in a crate all day. At daycare they are able to get the exercise that they need while you work or go to school. Daycare may also help if you have a scared, shy, timid dog or a dog with separation anxiety. With all of the socialization they will get, you will see many good changes in their behavior.
Do you feed the dogs?
We only feed puppies that come in for daycare, with the food the client provides for them. All of the dogs have open access to water all day long.
Do you offer dog baths?
Yes! As a convenience for our daycare clients we do offer bathing for dogs while at Doggie Dayz. Let us know when you’d like an appointment and we’ll schedule a good scrubbing for your dog. Although we are not groomers, your dog will go home clean and smelling great! We offer this service at $15 for small dogs and $25 for large dogs.
Do you offer boarding?
Doggie Dayz specializes in dog daycare and we do not offer overnight boarding at our facility. However, several of our staff members offer dogsitting for our clients. This service is separate from Doggie Dayz, but we can help you contact them if you are a current Doggie Dayz client. Give us a call and we’ll introduce you to one of our dogsitting specialists!
