    LIABILITY

    Please be sure to read our liability waiver and know the rules before leaving your dog and the hotel and daycare.

  • The safety of your dog is our top priority. For that reason, we have a ZERO tolerance aggression policy. If your dog shows aggression toward any other dogs in the park, they will be removed from the daycare until you are able to get them at the end of your day, and will not be allowed back into the group daycare setting. You may still drop your dog off for daycare and boarding, but we will put them on solo walks and playtime for the safety of the other dogs in the facility. We understand that a group play environment is not good for each and every dog, which is why we offer solo walks and playtime for those that sometimes do not play well with others.

    All dogs MUST be up to date on all of their vaccinations before being allowed in to our facility. This includes rabies, distemper, kennel cough and a clean fecal float every 6 months.

    All dogs MUST wear a flat collar at all time while in the parks. If you bring your dog in without a flat collar, they will not be allowed in the park and may NOT STAY in the facility. If you use a training collar to pick your dog up and to drop them off, please provide a flat collar upon your arrival each morning. We will gladly put it on them for their time in the parks, and put the training collar back on when you pick them up at the end of the day.

    If your dog has loose stool for any reason, they will NOT be allowed into the play parks.

    We are not responsible for lost items. We do lots of laundry and cleaning everyday, and cannot be responsible for toys, treats etc that are brought in.

    Please note: Frontline must be applied at least 24 hours in advance of your dog coming into daycare, or else your dog will need to be walked for the day, and you will be charged the Solo Daycare rate of $56. In addition, Seresto collars must be removed before dogs enter the play park. We are not responsible for misplaced Seresto collars.
