FAQ
 
 
What are the requirements for daycare/boarding (vaccinations etc.)?
 
Your dog must be current on all required vaccinations. The required vaccinations are rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella (canine cough). Dogs over six months of age must be spayed or neutered. Dogs must be flea and tick free, and go through our interviewing process.
 
How do I enroll my dog at Playful Pooch?
 
You must fill out 2 forms (found under New Customers) and have copies of all current vaccinations. Your dog will then interview with a few other dogs their own size for a short period of time. If this time goes well they will continue the interview in a larger playgroup of dogs, this could take up to two hours. The interview process is to make sure that your dog will enjoy their time at Playful Pooch since daycare and boarding involves a lot of interacting with other dogs.
 
Can I take a tour of the facility?
 
We encourage everyone to tour our facility so you can see where your dog will be playing. Call to inquire about when you can stop by for a tour.
 
Do I need reservations?
 
For daycare you do not need to make reservations, just drop your dog off for a day of fun! For boarding you do need to make reservations because we fill up quickly!
 
What days and times is Playful Pooch open?
 
Monday to Friday- 6:30am to 7:00pm
Saturday- 7:00am-7:00pm
Sunday- 5:00pm-7:00pm (boarding only)
Holidays- 5:00pm-7:00pm (boarding only)
 
What does my dog do all day at Playful Pooch?
 
Your dog will play all day in a group of dogs led by one of our trained staff members. Your dog is placed in a playgroup depending on their size and temperament. There are large indoor and outdoor play areas with obstacles and toys to keep your dog busy and happy! Mid-day your dog will have a 60-90 minute naptime in one of our kennels so they can recharge for the afternoon. At naptime we give them a treat or you can leave a lunch with them when you drop them off. If your dog is only staying for a half day they do not have to participate in naptime.
 
Why do I see some larger dogs with smaller dogs?
 
Our playgroups are formed based on size and temperament. If you see a larger dog with the smaller dogs it is because they enjoy the company of smaller dogs.
 
What kind of collar should my dog wear?
 
We recommend that your dog wear a quick release collar with a nametag and phone number on it.
 
What is the difference between Playful Pooch and a traditional kennel?
 
At Playful Pooch your dog will be interacting and playing with other dogs during the day. A traditional kennel does not offer all day play with other dogs.
 
Does my dog play with other dogs during their overnight stay?
 
All dogs staying overnight participate in daycare and are only in their kennels at meal times and at night. They have lots of time to play with their friends and will be happy and exhausted when you pick them up!
 
Do I need to provide anything when my dog stays overnight?
 
We provide food bowls and water bowls. We can provide bedding or you can bring your own. We can also provide food, but it is recommended that you bring your own food because it is best when dogs don’t change their diets. Feel free to bring their favorite toy for bedtime!
 
Are there any restrictions on what treats I can leave with my dog?
 
We ask that you do not provide rawhides or greenies for your dog, as they can be a choking hazard. Most other treats are fine to leave with your dog including bully sticks, soup bones, or kongs.
 
What do you do in case of illness or injury?
 
We will try to contact you right away. If we cannot get a hold of you we will reach out to your emergency contact. If we feel it is necessary your dog will be taken to the veterinarian right away.
 
Why is my dog thirsty after daycare?
 
Your dog will have water available to them the entire time they stay with us. Our dogs play a lot, which dehydrates them; by the time they get home it’s probably time for them to have another drink.
 
Why do my dog’s paws seem to be sensitive after daycare?
 
If your dog is very playful their paws might become raw from running around. Although we check their paws it is hard to tell when they are becoming raw until it already happens. If you think your dog’s paws are hurting them they will need to rest to help them heal.
