My dog isn’t spayed/neutered. Can they still board or attend daycare?
All dogs over the age of 8 months must be spayed/neutered to use our daycare and boarding services.
What vaccines are required?
We require all dogs to have up-to-date Rabies, DHPP and Bordetella. All dogs must also be on an annual heart worm and flea prevention program prescribed by a veterinarian.
Are there any breeds you don’t allow?
We do not accept any breed banned by legislation.
How old must my dog be to attend Daycare or to Board?
Dogs must be 16-weeks of age to attend our facilities. This is when their full range of vaccinations will be completed. In our Puppy Socialization training there are slightly different requirements, so we suggest you check our website for more information.
Do you separate the dogs by size or age?
We allow dogs of all ages and sizes to play and socialize together. However, at all our locations we do have separate areas for dogs to rest and have quiet time.
If required, how do you correct a dog?
We use distraction and positive reinforcement keep a dog’s behavior in check, if required. If a dog is being unduly assertive, it may be given a time-out from the group.
Are the dogs always supervised?
Yes, dogs are always supervised by our trained and experienced staff.
Are there any minimum attendance requirements for my dog to attend daycare or boarding?
Dogs who have not attended daycare or boarding for more than 8 months must complete a reassessment to return to daycare, and a minimum of a half-day daycare visit prior to any boarding stay, so that we can ensure that the dog is still a good fit for a group daycare environment.
Can my dog be groomed while at daycare/boarding?
Absolutely. All Doggieland locations offer full grooming services. If you want your dog groomed while staying at Doggieland, it can usually be arranged by booking in advance. Clients are entitled to 2-hours complimentary daycare either before or after a groom. If your dog is in daycare that day for an extended period, a maximum of 3-hours of daycare is billed on the grooming day.
I want to bring my dog to Doggieland, now what?
Wonderful! The first step is to fill out the online Registration Form and select the location closest to you. Once the form is received and reviewed by our staff, you will be contacted to come in for a consultation with your dog. At this time you will be asked to bring your dog’s vaccination records. While you and a member of our staff go over the details, your dog(s) will be introduced to the other dogs in the daycare. Upon completing a successful visit, your dog will be registered and ready for Daycare or Boarding.
What other services do you offer at Doggieland?
In addition to Daycare, Boarding, Grooming and Training, we also offer Home Visits and Private Walks. Our Retail Boutiques offer an interesting selection of toys, treats and accessories, as well as select brands of dog food.
Do you have Web Cams? How do I know how my dogs visit has gone?
No, we do not currently have web cams but rest assured we will give you an accurate and honest account of how your dog’s stay has gone. Daycare is GREAT for most dogs, but should we feel your dog would be happier with another type of socialization, we will let you know. If your dog is boarding for more than 5 days just send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll let you know how your dog has been enjoying their stay.
