Dog Daycare

Is Dog Daycare for You?

Do you work long hours? Is your dog home alone all day? Do you feel like you need to rush home to let the dog out? Would you like your dog to have a mentally, socially and physically enjoyable day with other dogs? Our off-leash dog daycare program provides a safe and supervised environment where your dog can socialize and play with other dogs.
Daycare group - April 2014
All new canines are evaluated to ensure that our off-leash dog daycare play groups are a good fit for your dog. Every day we provide:

  • Activities and games such as Follow the Leader, Red Rover, Find the Human, Recall, Group Sits and story time
  • Scheduled rests and naps
  • Lots of exercise with other dogs
  • Feeding upon request
  • Special snacks such as frozen yogurt or peanut butter-stuffed rubber toys (fee applies).
  • Trick-of-the-Month mini-training (fee applies)

Dog Daycare Requirements

Current vaccines for rabies, distemper and bordetella are required for participation in our dog daycare program; we gladly accept titers from your veterinarian.  We recommend all female dogs be spayed before their first heat cycle (usually 4-6 months) and male dogs be neutered around one year.  We do make exceptions - especially for giant breed dogs.

If you're interested in your dog joining our off-leash dog daycare play groups, please complete the dog daycare and boarding application and return it to us. We'll review your application and schedule an evaluation to make sure dog daycare is a good fit for your dog. Evaluations* are scheduled mid-morning during the week..
*This process of evaluating dogs for dog daycare and dog boarding is very comprehensive and provides time for your dog to become comfortable with the dog daycare environment and the dogs already in our dog daycare program. We do this to ensure the off-leash dog daycare play groups we have are a good fit for your dog.

Late Pick-ups

If you know you'll be late picking up your canine, you may request a late pick up when you make a boarding reservation or drop off for daycare.   We offer late pick-ups as late as 9pm, 7 days per week, for an additional $25/dog; advance notice at check-in is necessary to ensure we have staff scheduled after our facility closes.

Dog Day Care Testimonials

My puppy has been attending daycare at Just Fur Pets for a little over four months and she loves it there! She gets so excited when she gets inside and loves to play the day away. The staff are wonderful and they always let me know how my dog's day went. They treat her like their own dog and always give extra tlc when needed 🙂 In addition to daycare, she boards there occasionally and I never worry when I know she is in their care. - Dawn G.

I have been taking my one year old shepherd mix for daycare here and she loves it! She is always excited when we pull up and is always very happy when I come to pick her up. The staff are all very nice and helpful. As far as daycare goes, would definitely recommend. - Kate S.
