Is Your Dog Ready?

Review our dog qualifications to see if your dog is ready to join.

Behavioral Assessment

For our daycare, overnight, and hikes and beach outings, where dogs mingle in groups, we ask that your dog come in for a doggy interview. During the doggy interview, we give you a tour of our facility, go over all of the necessary paperwork, including vaccination records and answer any questions that you may have. For the interviews, we ask that your dog stay for a minimum of two hours.

The behavioral interview & tour are done together and by appointment. Appointments are available Saturday – Wednesday between 9am to 10:30am and 1pm to 3:30pm.


Dogs must show proof of vaccinations: DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and parainfluenza) Bordetella & Rabies Dogs are also required take an effective monthly flea and tick medication (e.g. Frontline, Advantix or Comfortis).

Neuter & Spay

Dogs must be neutered or spayed by 6 months old. This is because our facility is an open play environment. Both unaltered male and female dogs elicit competition from other males that wish to determine rank or to gain the attend of the intact female. If your veterinarian has recommended that your dog be neutered or spayed after 6 months, we recommend at home walks until your dog meets our open play requirements.


Dogs must be at least 4 months old and have received his or her final rounds of vaccinations. Puppies are more susceptible to contracting illnesses and parasites, so it is important for the safety and health of your dog that he or she meets our age and vaccination requirement. Not quite ready for daycare? We recommend at home walks until your dog meets our open play requirements.
