Meet & Greet
If you are a new client there are probably many questions you may want to ask. I am happy to meet with you and answer those as well as give you a showing of where your dog would be staying. This is called a "meet and greet." I do require these for any new dog I will potentially be caring for. I also ask for 20-30 minutes directly after the meet and greet to have your dog stay with me without Mom or Dad. It helps me to build a connection with him or her and I can get to understand their disposition a bit more. Setting up an appointment with me would be the first step. Give me a call and we can do that!
Checking In and Picking Up
I ask all clients pick a 30 minute window of time for drop off and pick up. This mainly allows for a traffic emergency or any other unforeseen holdup.
Please call if you are canceling with 72 hours notice minimum so the space can be given to another family.
Payment is at drop off in cash or payable with any credit card from this website for your convenience.
A few reasons we will decline a dog:
1. Aggressive with other dogs or people
2. Not house trained or uses potty pads (everyone understands an accident or two)
3. Marks (this is when male dogs urinate to mark territory. It is fine outside)
4. Will need to sleep in the bed with us. (Unfortunately, with 3 or 4 dogs, this is not possible.)
5. Serious separation anxiety without sedation from vet (We are open to working with sedatives).
Having an alternative to your dog being at home while you are absent is a great thing. Dogs can get bored and lonely at home alone even just for the time you are at a part time job. When our daycare dogs get dropped off here they get to be "one of the pack".
For that day, the dog gets to play, be social with other dog(s), be in an environment where there is love and care, and most of all have someone who will care for them.
We take dogs for any combination of days for the doggie daycare program. We have many different kinds of daycare packages to suit your needs listed on the pricing page. We have a minimum of a few days a month to come to daycare.

PLEASE DO NOT BRING SQUEAKY TOYS, RAWHIDES OR FLAVORED BONES AS THE DOGS CAN FIGHT OVER THEM. OTHER TREATS AND TOYS ARE FINE.
I can remember being a young kid and getting excited to sleep at my best friend's house. That is the atmosphere I give the dogs that stay here. I doubt they will have curlers in their hair, but I want them to enjoy themselves so much that they are excited to come back! When I hear my clients tell me that their dogs know when they are getting close to my house in their car and cannot wait to get the rest of the way, that is the best compliment I can receive. Dog treats will be given with your permission. Along with treats comes plenty of affection, love, & snuggles!
