Daycare Consent Form

  • Thank you for your interest in daycare!

    We allow dogs to have off-leash play several times daily while allowing breaks in between. Your dog will be pampered and loved while given the opportunity to hang out and play with other dogs. We group our dogs by play style and by size. Most groups are around 5-15 dogs, and our staff to the outdoor dog ratio will not exceed 15 dogs per team member. The staff member is there to help guide the dogs in appropriate and constructive play. They will often throw toys for them to fetch, chase, play on and around our play structures and stand in as the “pack leader” with the dogs. Our staff is trained in recognize dog body language and help refocus dogs’ attention when their behavior may start to become inappropriate. We utilize different methods to do that by using voice commands, body language, and “herding” dogs to different areas. We will separate dogs that appear to have clashing personalities as soon as we can identify them. We evaluate all dogs on their first day of daycare and allow them to get in the group if we feel comfortable with their reactions. Please understand that not every dog benefits from off-leash group play. Some dogs don’t get along well with others. If your dog doesn’t get along well with others, we may not accept your dog back into doggy daycare. It is not a statement about your ability as a pet owner; some dogs do not enjoy daycare.
