Dog Daycare

Dog Day Care

Canines are social animals by nature and thrive when allowed to frolic and play with each other. At daycare’s or play school, dogs are under supervision while playing in there assigned play-groups according to their size and temperament.

At Fur the Love of Dogs we offer the most unique dog daycare in our area. Cage free, outside and in a park like setting. Our fur friends will enjoy a vigorous morning of play with lots of toys, chasing, socializing and belly rubs. The full day can consist of 7 hours of group play with a lunch time, if requested, and a rest period. When it’s time to pick up your fur friend, they will be tired, hungry and ready to settle in for the evening.

Who Needs Daycare?

  1. Puppies

    Socialization is especially important for puppies to mature into friendly outgoing adults. Not to mention those small bladders. Leaving puppies alone for hours can make potty training a difficult task to accomplish.

  2. Bad Dogs

    Often misbehaving when left alone is a result of separation anxiety. Dogs don’t understand why we have to leave and can become angry or sad. Exercise causes the release of endorphins in the brain which can give our dog an overall feeling of well-being.

  3. Little Dogs

    Little dogs have to potty more often; little bladders can not wait 8 to 10 hours to relive themselves. It is just as important for little dogs to exercise daily to get their legs, heart and lungs going.

  4. Big Dogs

    Big dogs have lots of energy; daily exercise will help to maintain good cardiovascular health and weight. Dogs lacking in a good exercise regimen can become bored or restless and may develop troublesome traits such as digging, barking or chewing.

  5. Senior Dogs

    Arthritis is very common in senior dogs and maintaining a healthy weight as well as exercising those joints will help to improve mobility. Plus exercise keeps the muscles strong which helps to keep their joints stable. Even though older dogs tend to sleep more as they age, maintaining a low impact exercise program will help to keep your senior dog happy into the retirement years.

Dog Daycare Policies

To ensure the well being and comfort of your pet and our staff, the following rules and regulations are in place for all of our guests.

  • All dogs must have up to date vaccinations. Owners must submit written proof of distemper/parvovirus(DHLLP), Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations. Rabies is required for puppies over 4 months of age.
  • All dogs must be on heart-worm medication and flea and tick prevention year round.
  • All dogs must be in good health upon admission. All dogs must be free from any condition which could potentially jeopardize other guests. Owners will certify their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Dogs that have been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days will require a veterinarian release of health to be admitted or re-admitted.
  • We encourage the spaying and neutering of your pet to eliminate hormone-driven behavior, but we also realize that some situations are unique. Please feel free to speak with a representative of Fur the Love of Dogs if necessary.
  • All dogs must pass our temperament evaluation to enter our daycare. Dogs will be given a one hour evaluation prior to admittance. Note: Personality Testing is done on Monday-Saturday at 1pm or 2:30pm please call in advance to set your evaluation appointment.
  • All dogs must be non-aggressive and non-protective of food or toys. Owner will sign an agreement that their dogs have not harmed or shown any aggressive or threatening behavior towards any person or other dogs.
  • All dogs must wear a flat collar with identification tags attached.
  • Aggressive or dangerous behavior is grounds for dismissal.
  • Should an emergency arise where a dog is unable to be picked up the dog will be kept at our facility with the our overnight rate applied at the owner’s expense.
