Dog Daycare FAQ

Is dog daycare good for dogs?

Yes! Doggy Daycare provides an outlet to expend excess energy, socialize, exercise, and remain active. Dogs are social animals that need exercise and stimulation, and doggie daycare is the best way to provide both!
In Doggie Daycare, your dog can participate in daily exercise through group activities. Participants play in a cage-free environment while enjoying the freedom to stretch their legs.

What is a dog daycare temperament test?

To provide the safest and most enjoyable environment possible, our trained and certified staff evaluates every dog on their first day. During the evaluation process, we assess the temperament of your dog and their compatibility with a group of dogs.

Do you separate dogs by size in Dog daycare?

Yes, dogs that are 30 pounds and over are evaluated for our large playgroup. Dogs that are 29 pounds and under are evaluated for our small daycare playgroup.

Dog Boarding FAQ

Is there someone overnight with the dogs?

Most pet care facilities do not provide overnight staff. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with video surveillance and protected by a central station alarm and a fire system. To maintain a stress-free environment and promote a restful night, we do not have staff exploring the facility overnight. Most dogs are asleep before we lock up, and we tend to wake them upon arrival in the morning. Our staff is here from approximately 6:30 A.M to 8:00 P.M., but the facility closes at 7:00 P.M.

My dog doesn’t do well with other dogs. Can you still board them?

Absolutely. As long as they are people-friendly, we can still board them, and they will receive personal one-on-one playtime with our staff.

Can I bring toys?

Absolutely. We can accept toys made of rubber and/or plastic. To maintain a safe and sanitary environment, we do not allow any fabric toys. We strongly advise against bringing rawhide toys or anything that can be easily broken into small pieces or might become a choking hazard

Does my dog have to get a bath?

Yes. To ensure your dog returns home fresh and clean, a dog bath is recommended for any guest staying two or more nights.

General FAQ

How did my dog get a Minor Cuts/Abrasion?

While in Group Play (Doggie Daycare), most dogs love to play vigorously and wrestle with each other all day. This interaction is very good for socialization and a great way for your dog to burn energy. During this play, it is NOT uncommon for some dogs to leave with minor cuts or scrapes. They love this type of play, and we have trained supervisors monitoring every group at all times. You can rest easy knowing we do not allow aggressive dogs at In My Paws, but dogs have teeth and nails and use them when engaging one another – sometimes, this can result in cuts or abrasions.

What is Canine Cough?

Canine Cough, or Kennel Cough, is similar to a mild common cold or cough in humans. It is usually NOT a serious condition. Most dogs will recover without needing any treatment. Unfortunately, every facility that cares for pets, such as dog hotels, doggie daycares, grooming salons, dog training centers, and even veterinary hospitals, will experience an outbreak of Canine Cough from time to time. Most dogs will recover without any treatment needed. However, puppies and older dogs may require a visit to your veterinarian.
