REQUIREMENTS FOR DAYCARE & BOARDING
Please read the requirements below before proceeding to the application
We want all of our furry guests to have a safe and enjoyable time while they're with us. To ensure that everyone has a great experience, we ask that all dogs attending daycare and boarding be in good health, free of any wounds/hotspots/or injuries. If your dog has a wrap, cone, or any other covering for an injury, they will not be able to be in the pack. Bark Bark Club does not have special isolation areas for any sick or injured dogs.
If your pup is experiencing any signs of sickness including (but not limited to) coughing/hacking, diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, etc, please keep them home while they recover as they may be contagious.
Seniors & Dogs with Impairments
Bark Bark Club is a high energy, active environment and not suitable for every dog. Dogs with mobility problems that have trouble standing or moving on their own, will not be comfortable in this environment. While we welcome dogs of all ages, some seniors have a difficult time navigating their way around a pack of dogs.
If your dog is visually impaired, or has any other impairment that keeps them from being able to move safely within a pack of dogs, they will not be admitted into Bark Bark Club's daycare/boarding program.
Vaccines & Preventive Care
The following vaccines are required to kept up-to-date at all times:
- Rabies (required at 6 months of age)
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
- Distemper/Parvo (DHPP)
- Proof of negative fecal result yearly
Temperament Testing Process
All dogs must complete a temperament test with us before being approved for daycare/boarding. Temperament testing is a way to assess your dog's personality and behavior to determine whether they would be a good fit in our environment. This involves observing their reactions to various stimuli, such as other dogs, people, and new environments, as well as their level of sociability and playfulness. The goal of temperament testing is to ensure that your dog will be comfortable in a pack environment, and to identify any potential problems or concerns that may need to be addressed before they can begin attending daycare/boarding.
Before your dog is approved for boarding, they will need to complete a minimum of two daycare sessions (not including the temperament test). However, each dog is different. Some dogs need more time to become acclimated to this environment before we feel they will be comfortable staying overnight. We may even require an overnight temperament test before approving any longer stays.
It's important to note that temperament testing is a process that is unique to each dog. While some dogs are comfortable and sociable right away, others may need ongoing testing so we can see how they progress. If that is the case, a staff member will discuss a plan for your dog to ensure this is the right fit for them.
