Requirements

Must be at least four months of age, in good health (no fleas, ticks, or contagious illnesses)

Current vaccines including Rabies, Distemper, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis and a yearly Bordetella. It takes at least several days to generate a solid immune response after receiving the Bordetella vaccination; therefore, this vaccine must be done at least 2 weeks prior to visiting us at It's All About the Dogs.

We do not accept intact males, pregnant females or females in heat

We do not accept American Pit Bull Terriers, Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Bull Dogs, English Bulldogs or mixed breeds that have the appearance or characteristics of one of these breeds.

Because the dogs play together here, all dogs must come in for an orientation day before staying overnight as a guest. This allows them to get to know us before being left overnight in our care and a chance for us to assess their temperament. We will observe your dog to make sure that he or she is not aggressive towards our staff or the other dogs and that they allow us to handle them i.e. touch, pet and grab them by the collar. If your dog is shy, fearful or has never been boarded before, we suggest a few daycare visits prior to their longer planned stay. This will increase their comfort level, help reduce separation anxiety and will help ensure that your dog's stay is a successful one. We have many success stories of shy and/or fearful dogs that have become confident from socializing at It's All About the Dogs. After you have registered with us and we have verified your dog's vaccines records we will call you to schedule an orientation day. Orientations are scheduled before 10:00 a.m. six days a week. On your orientation day you will drop your dog off to play with us for a minimum of four hours.

All dogs must have a snap collar and identification tag. We do not allow buckle, choke, martingale (modified choke) or pinch collar during play. Although these are great secure collars for walking your dog they can be dangerous in daycare. Many clients have two collars for their dogs, their daycare collar and their leash collar. Always remember to bring your dog into the building on a leash.
