What to Know


How do I begin?

  • Make sure you have current vaccination records for your dog. We require that your dog is current on their Rabies, Distemper and Parvo vaccines. We will get those from you when making your reservation.
  • All dogs must be at least 4 months old (the age they can have their rabies shot). 
  • Male dogs over 6 months old must be neutered and females over 12 months must be spayed. We do not accept female dogs in heat. We may require spay or neuter procedures for continued attendance at the facility. This is for the safety, well-being and happiness of all of our dogs. 
  • All dogs must be free of fleas and ticks and on a preventative plan. If we do find fleas on your dog, we will administer a flea bath immediately (at the owner’s expense) and notify you. Flea baths are not preventative care.

What’s next?

  • Schedule your first free half day (up to 5 hours). Your dog(s) must complete this first day assessment before any future reservations can be made. We only temperament test Monday - Friday with drop off between 8am-10am.
  • If your dog passes & stays with us past the 5 hours on their first 1/2 day, you will pay the difference between 1/2 day and full day ($10).
  • Reservations need to be made at least 24 hours in advance. If you need to cancel for any reason, please do so within 24 hours of your reservation or you may be charged a $25 cancellation fee.


  • Monday through Friday we have daycare from 7:00am - 7:00pm. Saturday & Sunday from 9am-2pm. You can add a 1 hour day training to your pup's day or a pack walk adventure. Training and pack walks will be a scheduled "additional service" option and based on availability.
  • Saturday, Sunday and some holidays we have "on the go" daycare, too. We come to your home to pick up your dog around 8am and drop back off around 4pm. Actual times may vary depending on the dogs in the pack that day, but the general time is 8am-4pm. Limited availability.
  • All dogs must pass a temperament test for daycare. All pack walk dogs must be good on/off a leash or currently in training with our trainer. If your dog is in day training, they will be able to do a pack walk as part of training.

Pet Taxi Services:

  • If you live within 5 miles of our location, the one-way charge is $10. 
  • If you live within 5-10 miles of our location, the one-way charge is $15. 
  • Pet Taxi services must be scheduled when making your reservation and we cannot guarantee availability. 
  • Pick-ups are usually between 7-9am and drop-offs are usually between 6-8pm. We cannot guarantee exact times or availability without reservations.

What can we bring?

  • If your dog is here for day care, we recommend you feed them at home. If your dog is here for overnight stays, you must bring your own food and any medications they need. 
  • We do recommend you leave toys and blankets at home. If you bring them, please be aware that they may get dirty or soiled since your pup may be with other dogs in our sitter's homes. 

Overnight Stays:

  • Many of our overnights are with our pet sitters in their home (limited availability). We will match your pup(s) with the best fit based on their personality and needs. They must be social, housebroken and on flea treatment to stay with pet sitters.
  • We also have in facility boarding for dogs that we open up once our sitters are booked. 
  • Each dog will need to pass the temperament test. Bedding is provided.
  • We do have individual crates available, but most dogs will be social boarding in our playrooms with beds and blankets.

Potty breaks:

  • All of our dogs are inside all day for daycare. We have found that they do not regress in their potty training and treat daycare like an inside dog park. If you do want your dog to get a potty break/walk outside, you can add on a 15 minute walk for an extra $10
  • If you purchase a package or monthly subscription, adventure packs walks are now included (see Rates page).

Grooming (by appointment):

  • We offer full grooming services that need to be scheduled in advance.  Full service grooming is available on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Appointments can be made directly on the web site or you can give us a call.
  • If you cancel on the same day of your reservation or do not show up, a $25 cancellation fee applies.

Drop-Off, Pick-Up and Checkout

  • Lobby hours for drop-off and pick-up are 7:00am - 7:00pm (M-F); 9:00am - 2:00pm (Sat. and Sun.)
  • We do not offer pet taxis on weekends or outside of our weekday hours, so you will need to check-in and checkout during our lobby hours.
  • Payment is due upon checkout or may be made in advance at check-in. If your stay is longer than 7 days or over a holiday, we will require a 50% deposit at check-in
