We understand that dropping off your pup for his or her first day of daycare is very similar to watching your kid board the bus for their first day of kindergarten. We do our best to make sure your pups first day is fun-filled and easygoing. Our introduction process is personalized for your dog to ensure that they have their best first day possible.
At first, we will clear a yard and bring your pup in on a slip lead so they can get comfortable in their new surroundings. Once they become used to the yard, we will bring in one of our calmest dogs from the other yard to assess how your dog interacts and greets other dogs. At your dogs pace, we will bring in dogs one by one working up towards our more energetic dogs. If your dog passes the introduction process, they will be in daycare for the rest of the day.
Some pups do require more work and attention and that is exactly why we offer day school. Some dogs also may require more than one intro until they get comfortable. If your pup didn't quite make it into group, we do charge an additional $5 (Private Care Charge) because we have someone that is dedicated specifically for rotating the separate pups for potty breaks and outside time and they get one-on-one play with a handler or even interaction with other dogs in small group play if possible.
The introduction process is included in the price of daycare and there are no extra fees or evaluation fees associated with your pups first day.
Intro days for daycare must be scheduled and are offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. You will be notified as soon as we can schedule the intro day! We need to limit the amount of intros we have in order to dedicate the proper time to each dog and set them up for success!
