ABC's & 1,2,3's
A. Label All Belonging:
In order to keep track of all your dogs items, it’s important to label them. If you own a generic leash, like a solid black one, or a plain choke chain or collar, use a tag or colorful ribbon; this will help us ensure it doesn’t get mixed up or lost.
2. Business First:
Coming to daycare is always exciting! So please give your dog a chance to have a potty break before entering. Your pup will be much happier and relaxed, and it will help us keep clean and smelling fresh!
C. Keep Fido on leash:
When dropping your dog off for daycare, we ask that you bring their leash with you and that you leave it attached until the staff removes it. Sometimes, your pup may be extra excited to come and play but it can be unsafe if we simply let them come charging into the pen. To ensure proper safety and control, we may have to bring your dog into the pen on leash. This is particularly important because some of the dogs may be working on their dog to dog skills, and we need to maintain the appropriate energy level.
Drop Off 101
Drop off time for daycare is from 7am until 11am. This helps us with numerous factors like establishing a proper pack bond between all of the dogs.
Pickup time typically starts around 4:30pm-4pm and ends at 6:30pm. ** All dogs picked up after 6:30pm will be charged a $10 late fee.
After you’ve booked your reservation and dropped your dog off at daycare, we ask that you sign them in. Our sign-in sheet is located at the front desk beside the computer and is sorted alphabetically by last name. This helps us keep track of several important things throughout the day:
- Allergies and/or food restrictions:
Please make a note on the sign-in sheet in the box marked “Things We Should Know” and let the staff know if your dog has any allergies or food restrictions that we should be aware of.
- Early pick-up, alternate person for pick-up:
Please make a note in the box marked “Things We Should Know” if you’re picking your pup up earlier than usual or if someone else is coming to pick them up for you. (early pick up is still considered a full day on your full day pass)
- Sore spots, upset tummy:
Please make a note in the box marked “Allergies/Other” and let the staff know if your dog is feeling any discomfort like a sore foot or if their tummy isn’t one hundred percent.
Dogs are one of the most social beings on the planet. They love to play and interact with one another. We believe the best doggy daycare experience is one spent in a structured and safe enviroment. So, in order to keep everyone safe, we may remove your dog from Gen Pop and place them in a separate pen or kennel for some rest or a time out.
