+ Why Dog Daycare?
Dog Daze Playcare offers full-day daycare for dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds. We also offer private training, grooming, boarding and special treats. Our staff of experienced dog trainers and handlers offers exceptional care for your pet so that you don't have to worry about his or her needs while you're away.
+ What is "dog playcare"?
At Dog Daze Playcare, we provide open playtime under the supervision of a trained attendant. Your dog will enjoy unstructured playtime with other dogs in both an indoor and outdoor setting. Dogs get great stimulation and exercise!
+ Why should I consider playcare for my dog?
Dogs are pack animals. In the wild, dogs are never alone - they're always with a group or pack. Yet when a dog becomes part of our family, we expect them to adjust to our schedule, which often means 8 or more hours a day alone when we're at work or school. To a dog, that's boring, lonely and scary! It's the opposite of how dogs think and feel. Dog Daze Playcare recreates the instinctual pack environment for your dog. By bringing your dog to Dog Daze Playcare, he or she interacts with other dogs and people during the day, so they never feel alone. They're not left to their own mischief in your home or yard where they can damage your property or annoy the neighbors with constant barking or howling. They get beneficial attention, exercise and most important of all - love - from our caring staff!
+ How can I enroll my dog in playcare?
First, fill out our online registration form. Then, call and make an appointment to see Dog Daze Playcare, meet our staff, and provide us with your dog's medical records. We perform an initial behavior assessment to make sure your dog is a good fit for our program.
Dogs must be current on the following to enroll:
- (DHLPP) Distemper
- Negative Fecal Float
Pets over one year of age should be spayed or neutered. All pets must also be on an active flea and tick control program. We also ask that you do not bring sick pets to our facility.
+ What vet records will my dog need?
Dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper series (Dist, Lepto, parvo, parainfluenza) and Bordetella (for canine cough). We'll need you to bring a hard copy of your dog's vaccination records from your veterinarian so we can make a copy here to have on file. Dogs must also have a recent negative fecal check for worms, and be on regular preventative treatment for fleas, ticks and heartworm.
+ Do you allow puppies in playcare?
Yes! Puppies especially need good socialization when they're young so they understand that their pack extends to other dogs and people outside of their immediate "family." We accept puppies current on vaccinations as young as 8 weeks for playcare and training sessions.
+ What does my dog need to bring to daycare?
Nothing but a 5-6' flat leash and a quick-release buckle collar. Please, DO NOT bring retractable leashes! We have toys and bedding, etc. If your dog needs lunch, please bring in a labeled baggie or small container.
+ What do the dogs do all day?
Dogs have free choice all morning and afternoon! They can run, wrestle, play, or rest as they choose. We go in and outside every 20-30 minutes for potty breaks. All dogs nap from 12-1 p.m. in their crates (we have enough for everyone).
+ What are daycare packages?
We offer 5, 10, and 20 day packages to customers who require daycare for their pet on a repeating basis. These packages are discounted from the daily rate. Single-day rates and package pricing can be found here. Dogs must stick to the repeating schedule in order to be elligible for most packages.
+ Do packages expire?
Yes, all packages expire 60 days from purchase.
+ What are these emails we get?
Our computer software will automatically send emails when your punchcard is about to run out, and when your dog's shots are about to expire. If you have already purchased another package, just ignore the emails. Please bring in new medical records when the previous shots expire.
We LOVE referrals! We would gladly extend a free daycare day to your dog when they refer a friend that becomes a regular client (attending at least once a month) or purchases a package. Make sure your friend mentions you on their application, so we know who to thank!
+ What dog breeds do you accept for daycare?
All breeds are welcome. However, each dog must pass an individual behavior assessment, and we reserve the right to refuse any dog that exhibits anti-social or aggressive tendencies.
+ Do I have to commit to a certain number of days each month?
No - you can choose which days you need and pay as you go, or purchase a multi-day package. However, dogs using certain discount daycare packages are expected to maintain their schedule.
+ Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept all major credit cards, debit cards, checks, and cash.
