We are currently not accepting new clients for DAYCARE. Our daycare numbers are at maximum capacity at this time. We have a wait list for future availability.

We are accepting new BOARDING clients if there is availability for your requested dates.

ENROLLMENT PROCESS FOR NEW CLIENTS: 

PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL REGARDING AVAILABILITY PRIOR TO SENDING IN PAPERWORK.

 

We will need the following steps completed for your dog to come for a visit!

 

1. ENROLLMENT PAPERWORK: 

 

We have two forms of paperwork that we will need completed and returned. You are welcome to email or fax the paperwork to us. You can also submit the paperwork directly through our mobile app. Search Downtown Doggy Daycare in your app store to download the mobile app if interested in this option. 

The links to the paperwork are listed below: 

1.Application
 

2.Policies and Owner's Agreement 

 

IMPORTANT INFO ON FILLING OUT FORMS!
 

 We suggest downloading and saving the files to your computer before filling out

the paperwork to ensure your info does not get lost. 

 

Feel free to email the completed application to us at dmdoggy@gmail.com

 or fax to 866-604-8085.

2. CURRENT VACCINATIONS AND FECAL TEST:

 

All dogs must have current vaccinations, proof of a fecal test and be on monthly heartworm and flea preventative.  Owners must submit written proof of the Rabies, Distemper booster and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine along with a negative fecal test within the last year. Your veterinarian can email to dmdoggy@gmail.com or fax the records to 866-604-8085. You can also submit a photo from our mobile app. 

3. SPAY/NEUTER:

All dogs over the age of 6 months must be spayed or neutered. We must receive written confirmation of the surgery from your vet once this is done at the appropriate age. 

4. SNIFF-N-WAG EVALUATION: 

All dogs must be interviewed prior to a visit to see if they are a proper fit for the daycare setting. The Sniff-n-Wag process includes reviewing your application and discussing your dog’s habits and behaviors. We will evaluate your pet by gradually introducing him or her to other dogs in their playgroup. A Sniff-n-Wag lets us guarantee a safe environment for all of our dogs. Once your paperwork is received, we will email you to setup this evaluation. 

   

WE CAN NOT SCHEDULE ANY SNIFF-N-WAGS UNTIL ALL PAPERWORK IS SUBMITTED. THANKS!
