I’m interested in your services but have more questions. What should I do next?
Call us and ask all the questions that you want so you feel comfortable with our business. If you are still interested, you will need to set up an initial consultation visit so that you and your pup can visit our facility. Your pup will also have to participate in a trial day of daycare, where s/he is evaluated for at least 4 hours to make sure that s/he is appropriate for our facility. The visit will also include a guided tour so that you can see where your pup will be staying. There is a one-time fee of $35.00 for the consultation, which will take approximately 30- 45 minutes.
What do the dogs do while they are there?
The dogs get to go in and out all day at will into our enclosed and professionally designed yard. They make friends with other dogs, play catch with staff, swim, sunbathe or sit under an umbrella for shade. If the dogs prefer, they can go inside and rest while listening to classical music in the climate-controlled house.
