The following are requirements for our furry friends to join us in the fun at daycare:
- All dogs must be spayed or neutered at 8 months of age
- Must be current on vaccines including Bordetella once a year
- Must be on approved flea control (Advantage, Frontline, Revolution)
Daycare hours are 7:00am-6:00pm. The facility is used for Training Classes in the evening, so prompt pick-up is appreciated. Don’t hesitate to call (354-2292) if you are running late as it will help us better prepare. Dogs not picked up by 6:00pm may be picked up at the Clinic and a $10.00 late pick-up fee may be charged to your account.
As a reminder, if you have a regular spot and you cannot attend, PLEASE call us ahead of time so we can accommodate for other clients.
Please NOTE: If you miss a scheduled play date without notifying us, you will be charged that day’s fee.
We would love it if all of our friends could be here for playtime, however we do not have the space available, therefore if you miss 2 of your regularly scheduled play dates without notifying us we will remove you from your spot to provide space for other clients and you will be placed on the waiting list.
If you are not currently signed up for a regular spot, please be sure to call and check for availability. We are not able to facilitate drop-ins at Doggie Daycare. Due to an increase in dogs, we will be turning away drop-ins who do not phone in advance! We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we would like to keep our environment safe and friendly for all of our playtime friends!
If you are a client of Los Gatos Dog & Cat Hospital we will gladly let you know if your pet is up to date with their vaccinations. If not, please bring your records, or a photocopy, so we can keep our records up to date. NO DOGS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND DAYCARE WITHOUT UP TO DATE RECORDS!
If your dog is acting ill (coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy) please do not bring him/her to daycare. If your dog is at daycare and shows any of these symptoms, you will be called and asked to pick up your dog.
The safety of our dogs is most important. When coming to daycare please drive slowly, hospital patients may be walking in the area.
It is required that all dogs be on a leash when coming to daycare. Cars and delivery trucks frequent the Clinic and Body shop in front of daycare, as well as patients from the clinic being walked around the area. If your dog is not on a leash he/she may decide to go say Hi to another friend and cars may not see them run across the driveway and many of the patients being walked may have recently had surgery and can’t or don’t feel well enough to say Hi. Also, PLEASE keep a short leash when entering daycare, often there are small children and or shy dogs in the lobby area who may not enjoy sudden hello.
We stress good manners and jumping on the door, gate or desk, are not considered good manners!
Your dog will be asked to sit politely before entering the play area. There is plenty of time for running and jumping once inside the play area.
For your convenience we have a PRE-PAY DISCOUNT PROGRAM. This is set up for you to avoid having a large balance and maybe accruing service charges billed to your account. We will notify you of any outstanding balance. You may pay as you go, but payment when picking up will be required.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
Thank You from the Daycare Staff
