Doggy daycare provides a safe, stimulating option for dogs whose owners work long hours, travel, or for dogs who need extra physical activity and social interaction during the day.
In addition to providing exercise and socialization, doggy daycare can help curb destructive behaviors and alleviate separation anxiety. Unlike dog parks and pet-sitting in the home, doggy daycare provides a consistent, fully supervised way to train and socialize pets so they are better behaved and easier to handle
We have multiple play rooms and dogs are broken into groups according to many factors, including:
Play groups are dynamic and change not only daily, but minute by minute depending on who is here, who comes in, and what is going on around them. Please be assured that while we will make every effort to accommodate your group preference, SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY. If we determine a different play group or room would work better for your pet's needs on any given day, we will move him/her at that time.
Because doggy daycare requires a friendly, happy atmosphere in order to be successful, it is important that we establish ground rules for behavior. Your dog should be comfortable playing and socializing with other dogs and allowing a new dog into their area without feeling territorial. For the safety of all pets and staff, we require daycare dogs allow us to handle them whenever necessary. For this reason, you may observe us making them sit, stay, etc. and they will not be allowed to jump on us when leashing them or moving them around. This does not mean we don't LOVE your pet(s)! We want them to play and have fun but it is important to us all that they respect us and behave when asked.
Proper introductions take time. We are unlikely to put your dog into daycare minutes after you arrive or with you present. Things go much smoother for us all once your BFF is comfortable with staff and surroundings. For that reason, an appointment is required for your first daycare visit, so that we can allow time for your pup to acclimate to the exciting sounds and smells in the building before doggy introductions begin.
Please contact us to discuss your BFF’s daycare needs. We will explain everything in detail, answer your questions, and help determine whether Wag Time will be a good fit for you. Once you decide to enroll, we will help you through the process and make an appointment to get you started. Please bear in mind that we do need to schedule your dog's first day of play. You should allow a little extra time on your first visit, so that we have time to answer all your questions and asses your pet's personality. After your first day, we will help you decide if ongoing doggy daycare will be beneficial to your pup and make sure we can provide the services you need.
