trial day

THE FIRST STEP TO BOARDING YOUR DOG WITH US

We group play all day and that doesn’t always work for every dog.  One of our number one goals is to create a safe and stress-free stay for your dog.  We do that by pre-screening every guest to make sure that our place is the right fit BEFORE you leave town.  Your dog’s trial day is their chance to go through a full day’s routine, meet new friends and meet us, all before they spend the night. That way, when they return for their overnight, they aren’t being dropped off to a new place, with new people. They are familiar with us and they are confident you are coming back for them!

WHO CAN PLAY!

  • Friendly, socialized and well behaved dogs
  • Dogs 4 months and older
  • Dogs that have been spayed or neutered by 12 months
  • Dogs vaccinated by a licensed veterinarian for Rabies, Distemper (DHPP) and Bordatella
  • Dogs treated with a  HEART-WORM and FLEA and TICK preventative
  • Healthy, happy dogs
  • Dogs that are crate/kennel trained
    • Crate trained= teaching a pet to accept a dog crate/kennel as a familiar and safe location
    • Dogs must be happy, calm, and able to crated/kenneled without being destructive, or barking excessively while in it.

WHO CAN’T STAY?

  • Aggressive, anxious, and non-socialized dogs
    • If a dog becomes aggressive towards us or other guests your emergency contact will be called.  We will not continue to board any dog we feel is a danger to anyone’s safety or excessively anxious.
  • Dogs with anxiety, excessive barking habits, or ill-mannered dogs
  • Females in heat or over-zealous, still-intact males under 12 months
  • Dogs who cannot be crated or kenneled without disrupting other guests (non-stop barking or destructive to kennel)
  • Dogs that are sick or injured
  • If for any of the above reasons your dog needs to be picked up, your emergency contact on file should be someone that can do that for you.  We will not continue to board a dog that we feel is dangerous or excessively anxious.

*subject to change

We strive to respect our guests and be honest with our clients. Some dogs do not enjoy group play or being around other dogs and since we are not a large facility, we will not board a dog that is clearly uncomfortable. Our guests are hand-picked with the interest of the whole group in mind.
