Do you ever come home from a long day of work and your beloved dog is so excited jumping and running around wanting all of your attention?

 

At the same time do you wonder if your dog has been lonely, bored and slept it's whole day away.

 

This is when our doggie daycare comes into play.

Here at South Paw's Daycare it is a natural and healthy outlet for your dog's energy and playful spirit.

A place where your best friend can play ball, wade in a pool (weather permitting), catch snowballs, snuggle and socialize with other friends that have four legs while your at work, getting things done or your for leg friend just needs to get out and be with it's own kind for awhile.

 

It helps your dog relieve boredom and/or stress of being alone all day.  Don't forget a bored dog is a destructive dog and a tired dog is a happy dog.  It provides mental and physical exercise so your pet will go home happy and tired from a full day of playing.

 

Frequently asked questions about doggie daycare:

 

Is doggie daycare a good idea for my dog?

 

*Does your dog spend more then 6-8 hours home alone per day?

 

*Does your dog act out (chew, bark,have inside accidents) while your away?

 

*Does your dog know how to interact with other dogs?

 

*Does your dog need more exercise, so he/she will be more calm and sleep better when he is home?

 

*Does your best friend even though he/she loves you so much need to make friends

with other friends that also have four legs?

 

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then doggie daycare is for them.

 

All dogs must be temperament tested to join our

doggie daycare.  This consists of setting up an appointment for a temperament test.

This test usually lasts 2 hours.

The days and times we test are:

Tuesday or Thursday mornings from 9am to 11am

or

Tuesday or Thursday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:30

 

During this time we will be introducing your dog with other dogs in our play groups to see how they get along. Dogs will be introduced slowly and 1 or 2 dogs

at a time.  During this time we will be watching your dog and the other dog's interaction together with toys, treats and while playing with each other.

 

During this time if we notice any aggression we will notify you.  At that time we will ask that you come

pick up your dog.

 

We will let you know how your dog did when you come to pick him/her up.  If all went well you may schedule your next date or purchase your dogs punch card.  The punch card comes in 5, 10 and 20 day cards.

 

You will need to bring in proof of shots before you start doggie daycare.  Required shots are:  rabies, DHPP, bordetella.  We also require a flea and tick preventative for all dogs coming to doggie daycare.

 

YES - ALL dogs must be spayed/neutered.

Dogs begin their interactions with one another by scent. In addition to other social cues from the play group and the environment.  Intact male dogs and un-spayed female dogs add additional mating and dominance dynamics to the mix. These dynamics may also result in aggression, competition and other behaviors that can cause serious harm to the other dogs at our facility.

 

Yes, you must have an appointment for doggie daycare. This is to ensure we will have enough dog to human ratio and to ensure all dogs in the daycare will be safe and have fun.

 

A  Dog's Day At South Paw Daycare

 

We play really hard,

We get snacks to.

They even take us out,

 To go number one and two.

Then we get rest time,

 From twelve until two.

 

When rest time is over,

Look out here we go.

We play and play,

Until you say time to go.

 

We are excited to see you,

We love you no doubt.

But we are tired from playing,

and all tuckered out.
