End-of-Visit Report Card

The socialization venues like doggie daycare provide gives dogs exercise time, greater confidence, and an overall increase in quality of life. Dogs that are not properly socialized can be fearful or even aggressive when they encounter other dogs, and this can be dangerous for you, your pet, and other dogs and people.

With our end-of-visit report card, we record information about your pet's behavior during their stay with us including their favorite toys and anything else that might be relevant. Remember, the more socialization your pet has, the more comfortable they'll be with other pets.

Dog Daycare Requirements

All boarding, grooming, and doggie daycare guests must be up to date with these requirements:

  • Rabies vaccine

  • Distemper with lepto vaccine

  • Canine influenza vaccine

  • Bordetella vaccine

  • Fecal testing

  • Must be spayed or neutered

To further ensure our guests' safety and wellbeing, our daycare center cannot accept dogs that are going into heat or displaying aggression towards other dogs. Furthermore, if your dog becomes significantly stressed during their stay with us, our team will let you know as soon as possible.

Our goal is to aid owners by caring for their pets when they need a helping hand and giving dogs the chance to make new friends and be more active. If you have questions about our daycare program and would like to register, give us a call at (630) 852-1855.
